Bottle. Poured a clear orange color with a mostly lasted frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour, yeasty and resin hop aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sweet & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer for style.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pouring this one on tap right now, awesome. Pours hazy straw yellow with one finger of white head. Absolutely wonderful nose, a blend of overripe mandarin orange and pink grapefruit flesh. Notes of hibiscus, pepper, and acetic acid. Tart and zesty. Flavor is nice and resinous. Oily citrusy notes with some zest and a nice acidity. Dry and zesty palate with a lingering tartness and slightly resinous finish. Bossome.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap, Leon’s Decatur, GA. Generous frothy pure whie head, on a light clearer orange body. Yeasty, dank berriness, hay, slightly funky, and lemon zest in the aroma. Slightly citric at first, then fairly earthy and kinda funky in the flavor, dry, slight berry-like presence. Medium body with bubbly carbonation. Nice

22 oz. Hazy orange-topaz with a lasting film of foam. Aroma of sour peach, vinegar, resin, eucalyptus, and beeswax. Taste is tart peach and apple cider vinegar, menthol, and resin. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, watery, and salivary gland-puckering in its dry tartness.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 44°. Color is a nice golden with a slight haze. Carbonation is light with a thin tight head. Aroma is great, fresh sweet hops with a nice sour note in the back. It has a lighter medium body that gives you a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is just amazing, with a bright tart peach taste, a hint of grass and a nice sour feel. After taste is dry with a lingering tart/sour taste. This brew is rocks, its a well balanced blend of tart and sour.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Bar on Buena as "Lips of Faith Le Terroir." Smells like warm sour cherries in dust and brandy. Opaque copper with a thin head. As sour as La Folie, but lighter in its fruit flavors and texture; more like melons and granny smith apples, with a hint of banana; bright and refreshing. As much as I love La Folie, this is more drinkable without sacraficing the sour goodness. Perhaps a bit less complex, it is nonetheless super-delicious. I’m a whore for sours, and I will gladly be this beer’s bitch any time it’s on tap.

Bottle - Pours golden amber with a thin off-white head. Smell is huge pungent mango and apricot--earthy and cheesy, with light citrusy funk. Wow...fantastic. Tasty is fruity and cheesy, with the same mango/apricot/citrus blend. White vinegar tartness on the finish, with tropical fruit and a bit of earthiness. Crisp and refreshing, with wonderful flavor. Awesome stuff.
