More garbage juice from pepsiedcan. Pours a clear amber with a generous sized off white head. Aromas of banana, esters, clove, yeast. Taste is your standard abbey dubbel... Some dark fruit, yeasty, spicy, cloves. Average at best. Man, I hope this wasnt real expensive because i wouldnt pay more than $5 for a bomber of it. Would not seek out again. I think Abbey Dubbel is my least favorite style, followed closely by Abbey Tripel.

Lips of faith you have finally come through with a well constructed, rich, nutty, lightly sweet, classic dubbel that renews my faith in this brewery a bit.

Bottle on my balcony with Eddie, John, and Ryan. Poured a deep mahogany with a small off-white head that quickly dissipated. Smell is fruity, light banana, spice, clove, bready malts, and anise. Taste is spicy yeast, banana, clove, dark fruits, roast, licorice, and rye. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Really a nice American interpretation of a Belgian dubbel. I thoroughly enjoyed this one; well-done NB, well-done.

Bomber purchased a year ago at Holiday Wine Cellar ($9.99). Pours a nice clear mahogany hue with two fingers of light beige foam. Aroma of sweet dark fruit, yeast, dark bread-y malts, and some spice. Flavor of dark fruit (cherry stands out), rich dark caramel, banana, and some tangy spice. Spritzy carbonation. Actually quite similar to NBs very good regular Abbey Ale, but with higher alcohol (though the 9.5% is hardly noticeable at all here). Very nice dubbel. (307, 708)

Pours reddish brown. Hints of toffee and almonds. Also full of dry fruits, spices and malts along with nut flavors. Creamy and rich.

SPDickerman (991) - Texas, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Pours muddy red-brown (chestnut) with a small off-white head. Smells mild, fruity and somewhat of bread made with fruits. Taste is fruity, bready, and has a bit of candy sweetness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Lips of Faith - Grand Cru Abbey Ale finishes with a mild sweetness that is not overpowering.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Bottle cellar aged for 6ish months pours a brilliantly clear copper with a quickly fading head, leaving only a ring of bubbles. Aroma is heavy candy caramel, plums, figs, cinnamon, some abv, very mild yeast character. Taste is browned biscuit, plum, caramel candy, some notes that border on chocolate but never become apparent as such, and a long fruity spicy finish. Body is light to medium, assertively carbonated, long dry complex finish. Overall. a very delicious brew.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 30, 2012
In full Lips of Faith mode at Dexters. Kinda filtered amber-ruby red. Patchy beige head. Bigtime rugged raisin prune aroma, intense. Delicate, creamy mellowed carbonation. This beer is awesome! Approaching Trappist level of quality. Take the NB Abbey and Trappify it. Creamy and drinkable, not sure if it would be quite as mellow from the bottle, A touch watery, but very true to style.
