Tap at New Belgium Tasting room. Tasted with La Folie and could definitely taste the lightness and less woody flavor. Wonderful sour tartiness. Enjoyed it!

tap. at first i thought the bartender had given me la folie. has that similar tart sour nose, it is a touch lighter, i had to order a la folie afterwards to make sure. soured uo from the get go. ends a bit chalky. i was reaaly thinking apricot, but if they say peaches, iíll not argue. tart without the jaw clinching sourness of some of my favorite beers. 5 bucks a half pint ainít bad for an occasional treat.

first of all, let me say if this was only called lips of faith i totally wo0uld never have tried it. secondly let me say kudos to our server who suggested it when i said something different. and lastly kudos to new belgium for taking a risk and having this AMAZING sour beer on tap. flavors of yellow sour cherries, some lemon, grass, jalepeno cheese, peaches, sweet-n-low and fantastic.

On tap at Flying Saucer-Little Rock (!!). One of those beers you never thought you would get to try-except by lucky circumstance at the brewery. Funny (or not so), the bartendress said it was a SWEET beer-of course she could not sample the wares because she was pregnant.
This came off as exceedingly tart and bitter with nice but not overbearing peach tones. Very drinkable and a great summertime beers. Very much a lambic-styled beer which I love. This has to be a one-off for the FS in LR.

Draught @ the Flying Saucer Little Rock. Golden/orange and clear. Nose is very peachy and pleasant. Flavor is very sour like the La Follie, but I like this better. The peach flavors are tart and surprising.

Lips of Faith Sour version. Awesome orange/red cloudy body with thin white head that disappears (detracting). Sour nose and fruity notes. Very sour taste and similar to other sour lambics; similar to sour patch candy. Good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled at the STL microfest..... well sampled many many times since this was a magnificent beer. This was worth the price of admission alone. Poured clear orange with a small white head. The aroma had sourness, a touch of wood and hints of peach. Medium / thin boyd with light sharp carbonation that stayed in the background. The taste was beautiful - started with earthy grainy sourness straight from the great Flemish Sour examples, light vinegar and dry peach. the finish has more peach and a pure crispness that was so welcome of a warm St. Louis afternoon. This beer was crisp, light, refreshing, over-the-top flavorful and wonderful on all accounts. This is a beer I may only have the opportunity to have on one day.... if so, I took full advantage of the situation. If this ever gets a proper release I will buy a case the day it is available to me. This is truly a great beer I hope to have again someday. Gargantuan thumbs up for this great Flemish sour ale (thatís listed as a fruit beer).

Excellent ale made with fresh peaches. The acidity balanced the sweetness which made this beer very drinkable. Nice touch of oak. Great food pairings with this beer or just quaff by the pool.

Sampled at Monkís cafe New Belgium Dinner 4/10/07 and at Tria Fermentation school 4/11. Golden color with a minimal white head. Aroma is malty with earthy, sour notes and a bit of peach. Flavor is malty with sour peaches; long, acidic finish. Really enjoyable.
