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 don’t 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 didn’t 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 it’s so sweet! It’s OK, but I don’t 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. I’d 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.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Surprised that they bottled this one. Terrible in every sense of the word. Crimson/garnet/ruby-red pour with a moderate eggshell head. Cherry skin, grape juice, caramel, honey-baked bread, and bitter coffee. Does that sound good? It tastes terrible...avoid!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle - pours cloudy orange-brown-red with bubbly white head, medium volume. Big fragrant nose of plum, dates, vanilla, cherry and malt. Taste is vanilla sweet, dark fruits, grain and cookie notes. Medium body, sticky finish, bit of cocoa at the end. Finishes abrupt on the palate, not as fully integrated as it could be.
