2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Best enjoyed by May 2014 on the label.
A- it pours a hazy to cloudy orange, usual well dones with the foam and lacing.
S- it smells earthy, with light notes of fruit..not much going on with the nose, really.
T- my this starts of very fruity sweet, turns kind of neutral, then I get some peach that’s a balance of sweet and sour in the finish. There’s an odd flavour in it. Must be the grains of paradise and or dandelion greens. Weird tasting, and what’s weirder is that the further I get into the session, the more the tastes seem to drop off.
M- lightish carbonation works with the medium body.
O- I’m not a fan. If the abv was much lower, it would be more drinkable but it still wouldn’t be a beer that I’d seek out again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Lactic barley malt aroma. Hazy golden yellow with minimal head. Sweet flowery malt initially with mild sour lactic finish. Not bad - definitely different.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at Khoury’s in Henderson, NV. Slightly hazy orange color with a thin white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast and slightly funky fruit. Medium to full body with flavors of earthy yeast, herbs and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Clear golden - light amber pour, with a white head. Sweet dough, a bit earthy, grains of paradise, light citrus, and yeast. These lips of faith beers all taste about the same.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 fl oz / 650mL bottle at a tasting.
Aroma: Interesting. Kind of a light aroma, but I picked up a sort of nutty/toffee scent.
Appearance: Clear yellowish, with a diminishing white head.
Taste: Biscuity, but pretty acidic. Kind of reminded me of sauv blanc; acidic and a little flowery. Not my favorite.
Palate: Light body, short finish.
Overall: A little too flowery for me, but a decent brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of peaches with some biscuit malt notes. The flavor is similar. I get a ton of fruity apricot character, with some sugar and biscuit thrown in. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Nose is tart fruit. Med body. Flavor is a mystery at first. With 15 secs or so there are Belgian fruit-esters, and some light bitterness. It edges on a citric sour. Seems dry. Finishing bitter and becoming more towards sour. Don’t know why I can’t get more enthusiastic about this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Super pale yellow, slightly hazy. The thin bright white head is nice and firm. Very spring-blossom-y aroma of sweet grassy wheat. This drinks with a very herbal character, but is also sweet and fruity. While this is an interesting blend of things, this is my favorite Lips of Faith effort. I don’t think the contrasting points go all that well together ... the finish comes up a bit off-putting. (#5057, 6/17/2013)
