Bottle many thanks to Adam. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is sweet..hay, straw, spice, melon, pear, apple, white grape, icing sugar and toast. The taste is white grape, vinous, melon, pear, straw, hay pleasant tartness, alcohol warmth and a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty interesting stuff. A lot of tart white wine stuff going on.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 On tap at Bailey’s Taproom, pours a hazy golden bronze with a small beige head. Aroma of light fruits, paint thinner and apples. Flavour of apples, paint thinner and alcohol. Very simplistic beer, full of apple and alcoholic liqueur notes. Decent, but too amateurish tasting, and quite boozy. Drinkable, but just barely.
22 oz. bottle, pours a dirty orange with a small white head. Aroma of hibiscus, tropical fruits, and some citrus hops. Flavour brings out guava, a little pineapple, some peach, some citrus hops, and some grapefruit. Interesting flavour profile, with loads of tropical fruits. Finishes on citrusy notes, particularly guava and grapefruit. Great stuff.
The bottle version is much better than the draught version I had. My rating will reflect a balance of my two tries.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber. Poured a lovely shade of lighter orangey-golden with a shorter, spotty white head. The aroma picked up lots of tart berries and fruits plus floral notes over honeysuckle and a kiss of redder fruit meat.. more floral as it warmed up, along with a solid Belgian yeasty character. The flavor found tart berries and floral notes throughout.. fruit, honey, and bready notes supported.. finished with tasty, interesting tart fruit, clovey yeast, and building, honey-fueled warmth.. tasty and interesting. Medium-bodied with a good level of tartness on the palate.. a few too many sugars on the back, but it was still very enjoyable.

Bottle. My wife and I were excited to try this-- we used to eat fresh feijoa fruit in New Zealand. This play as a very solid, estery triple with an added juiciness and a tart kick at the end. Extremely drinkable!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Clear yellow orange color. Thin white head. Dots of lace. Lightly citrusy, kind of limey aroma. Light banana. More acidic than I’m used to from tripels. Medium to bigger body, but it doesn’t feel very full. Lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Interesting, different tripel, but it seems a little flawed.

Bottle shared by John on Sunday morning after TAP-NY, in his hotel room. While Ed did not have on any pants. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft banana, toffee and some gentle floral aromas. Spicy and tangy. Tastes a bit like the flavor that occurs when you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. Tart and tangy. Warming alcohol on the finish. Very interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour from a bottle at New Belgium. Weird how all other Lips of Faith were on tap except the collaborations with DDC and Vivant. Anyway, this one pours a cloudy golden color with a small but lasting white head. Citrus and tropical fruits, caramel and pale malts, mild spice, sugar, and a good dose of herbs. Definitely a hoppy tripel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I couldn’t bring myself to go 8 in the aroma or flavor, but there’s an x-factor to this one I couldn’t put my finger on and really liked.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours light copper with an attractive beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour fruity caramel malt flavor with a lingering hibiscus note. This is a pretty strange version of Belgian Tripel.
