Dark amber, almost reddish with a thick off white head. Aroma is sour cherries with a hint of coffee and a little earthiness from the yeast. Flavor is a big wallop of fruit with an aftertaste of bitter coffee. Some nice funky yeast underneath it all. A little funkier than it needs to be.

From a bomber, good tan head on a brown very hazy body. Smells sweet with raisins and dates. Some yeasty floral notes. Lighter body on this one, initially it hits the palate hard with a good amount of carbonation, moving to a very sweet middle, with tons or dried, fruit, can really taste the dates, just a hint of dryness and a bit of a lingering alcohol

Bottle. BB 08/2014.
Lively light beige head, large bubbles, frothy, adequate retention. Deep, dark mahogany body, amber hue.
Belgian candy sugar, chewy figs, sherry tartness, brown sugar.
Big banana yeast flavors, mellow, chewy, warming, sweet fresh cherries on the backend and linger. Mild alcohol burn on back but tied in with cherry flavor it is reminiscent of cough drops.
Base of a beer is a great interpretation of an American-style Quad. The adjuncts are not unpleasant, but do not compliment the malt bill. Yeast flavors are my favorite characteristic.

Pours hazy deep amber with low off-white head. Aroma of brown sugar, dates, yeast, light cherry and light wood. Taste is light cherry sour initially before a heavy sugary alcohol sweetness. Finish is somewhat alcohol warming but a bit abrupt. Body is medium and creamy with soft carbonation.

Deep brown pour. Big off-white head. Tons of lacing paints the glass. Big notes of caramel and dark fruit. A bit of booze in the nose. Mostly raisins in the nose. Taste is hot, followed by a sweet, slick raisin note. Malty. Not bad.

Bottle poured into glass. I generally like most of the Lips of Faith beers but this one didn’t wow me. Just sort of mellow and meh. Oh well, not every single one can be a winner.

Bomber from Whole Foods Market Charlottesville. Pours a hazy red-copper color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee, toast, candied cherries, mild citrus and earth. The taste is tart fruits, stone fruits, earth, toffee, banana. Medium bodied, lingering tartness. Odd, but decent.
