2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours murky brown color with small ruby highlights. Aroma is cherries and dates but thereís a definite cough syrup aroma that throws it off. Taste is stale, the flavors just donít jump out at all. Light cherry cough syrup mixed with a touch of booze. Medium body and syrupy mouthfeel. This is just not very good at all. Not sure what they were trying for.

This was a decent beer, though it certainly doesnít give the impression of an abt. It seems more like a slightly more thick golden ale. Itís just kind of boring, surprisingly.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy darker amber color with a slight reddish tinge and an off-white head. Nose has some dark cherry elements to it and just a hint of roasting. Taste is a little sour, but very light. Not bad...

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at donít look back. Probably the worst possible pairing with tacos, but whatever. Even on its own, this is a very weird bird. Big and boozy and alcohol burn, but past that is fig and plum and medicinal cherry. Cough syrup finish. Really didnít care for it.

Poured from the bottle, poured slightly cloudy and red. Aroma is sweet and of alcohol. Flavor also shows the abv. There is some hint of the dates, but itís so sweet! Itís OK, but I donít enjoy these sweet beers.

I was disappointed with this beer. It was pretty much aroma less. The flavors that were discribed on the bottle were not prevalent at all. I will give new Belgium tons of credit for the lips of faith line but they missed on this one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
March 3, 2013 - bottle from AV3. Copper pour with big time head that lasted and some lacing. Aroma was cherry, banana, dark fruit and some alcohol. Taste starts sweet and artificial fruit, then a blast of alcohol comes with a slight undertone of coffee. Medium bodied and smooth.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a murky red with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, cherry and peppery Belgian yeast. Flavor of tart cherries, dark fruits and some Belgian yeast character. Unfortunately it does taste a bit like cough medicine. It sounded interesting. No coffee present.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
A little muggy looking, like a home brew. Cough syrup nose with a little stale malt. So strong and harsh with sticky, syrupy sweetness. Some bitterness to it as well. Damn that % is apparent. Iíd say stead clear overall.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cascaraquad - nutty, lager, sour notes. Malty sweet with a lager like finish. Mild sour feel to it. Low bitters and no hop feel. Red amber with a sticky head. Sits like rot gut in the belly.
