Bottle... Clear amber pour with a tiny, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is spicy, floral and fruity. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and floral accompanied by a hint of black pepper. Tangy finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home picked up at RJís in Fort Collins. Pours a dark golden appearance with a tan/khaki head. The aroma is intense and a bit of an enigma- tons of spicy yeast, cat piss, light diaper, metal, light smoke (huh?), tropical fruits, and earth. A bit goopy, somewhat boozy, ultra thick and intense tart tropical fruits (passionfruit, pineapple, starfruit), very juicy, toasty malty, a touch smoky, very floral flavor. Thereís a slightly lychee-like element to the beer as well with a big tartness than follows the finish. What the fuck is going on here? I was more excited for this New Belgium collaboration than any since the Alpine one, but itís all over the map and not very palatable.

"Awesome aroma, like a fruity white wine, with notes of hibiscus, pineapple, soft honeysuckle. Taste is almost as good, with hints of yeast as well, and well hidden alcohol. Really liked this one."

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy gold with small off white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt, cherry and apple skin. Medium mouth with sweet fruit and yeast, hides alcohol well, very good.

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.

3.2 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 Iím used to from tripels. Medium to bigger body, but it doesnít feel very full. Lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Interesting, different tripel, but it seems a little flawed.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.7 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 couldnít bring myself to go 8 in the aroma or flavor, but thereís an x-factor to this one I couldnít put my finger on and really liked.
