3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light orange color, lingering white head. Fruity hibiscus dominates the aroma with dough and toast in the background. Flavor follows the aromas very close; hibiscus and bready malt. The beer has an initial sweetness which that’s quickly subdued by a pleasant tartness. Reminds me of a pino gris. Solid beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle, best enjoyed by March 2014. Served in a goblet, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/peach color with about an inch off-white head that stayed around a while. There’s also a lot of lacing. The brew smells like hibiscus, stone fruit/tropical fruit (which I assume is the Feijoa), bready malt, and some peppery spice. It has a fruity taste that’s hard to describe, but like the aroma it reminds me of a stone fruit and tropical fruit, along with some citrus making it an unusual mix that I wasn’t expecting. It’s a bit sweet and tart. I can also taste some bready malt and floral notes (hibiscus). Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s well carbonated and easy to drink. I think it’s a good brew overall, I liked it. $8.99 a bomber.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Honey color with white head, nose of spices and light fruit, cherries, banana. Light body with good amount of carbonation. Tangy from the start, dry, vinous characteristics, slight fruity sweetness. Balanced and delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color of dark honey, poured very clear with a very slight head. Taste starts with a good mild tripel and quickly hits with flavors of mango, maybe papaya. Even that is dwarfed by the sweetness of well, flower oils. They are very sweet, very pronounced, and the hang in the whole mouth well after the swallow. Normally, that would be off putting, but it works for this beer. Aroma is mild but hints at what that sweet finish will be. This is a polarizing beer I think, but good if it is your thing.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. Deep amber/yellow. Heavy foam on pour fades to a thin layer. Odd sort of metallic funk nose (which, I just realized, I seem to get from other Lips of Faith beers). Tastes of yeast, floral (specifically hibiscus), passionfruit. Almost tropical in its qualities.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very tropical aroma and flavor, pineapple, floral hibiscus, mango, hints of strawberry and watermelon. Somewhat sour. Very good beer. Nice mouthfeel, fizzy, not syrupy or watery.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a hazy copper with a thin ring of white foam around the edge of the glass. The aroma is definitely on the sweet side a little bit of tartness and herbal notes coming through as well. Taste is sweet, a little acidic, and bready. I do get a bit of alcohol burn toward the back end, but overall, this beer is pretty drinkable.

Bpmber shared at Craft Ale 20-Aug-2013. Poured hazy golden with white clingy head. Nose was black peppery hibiscus, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus. Tasted complex, hoppy, citric, with notes if black pepper, hibiscus, and a complex, lively mouthfeel. This one was stellar.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours from a pretty bottle a slightly cloudy peach/orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of funky fruits and spices. Medium-bodied with flavors of tart bitter fruit, peppercorns and yeast. The finish is peppery with a tart fruity aftertaste. Decent overall, if nothing else I learned I don’t care for feijoa fruit.
