I won’t lie, I was very surprised by this beer...yum! A hint of sour but primarily sweet, peachy, delicious.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Blue Moose in Iowa City, IA. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is peach, a light brett funk, a bit of a sweet bready malt, a touch of sourness, and a slight herbal note. Flavor is similar. Slight bretty funk and peach up front before a light bready malt sweetness comes in. Finishes a bit sour and funky with a touch of toastiness from the malts, a light lemon peel, and a decent peach backing. Slightly dry with a light earthiness and touch of pepper before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderately lively carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid beer. Nice peach note with a bit of a funky brett and sourness. Enjoyable.

Gold pour with a white head. Nose is dry, brett, peach, lightly fruity, and faintly funky. Easy palate, peach, brett, lightly tart, smooth finish.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Garbage disposal smell of rotten fruit, lemon zest, and peaches. Hazy amber, medium head. Vegetal, tomato and peaches. This is fairly unpleasant. Perhaps it can be reduced to a sauce, but for drinking, it is rather dreadful. The fragility of New Belgium’s beers is evident in this one.

Aroma is light, but it is mostly peach, with a touch of sour. Taste is bret funk up front followed by peach, lacto sourness and finishes with a bit of alcohol. Overall pretty good, but not up to the lips of faith standard.

Bottle. Pours a lighter gold color with a very small head. Very fruity in the nose, which is actually inviting. Peaches really come through in the taste - slightly sweet, without being overly so, and cuts the harsher sourness of a lot of saisons. Interesting...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a thick clear golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of vanilla, peach, maybe some lactic sourness, phenolic golden ale yeast, light bread. Flavor is fairly sticky, thought it was about 8%, hides alcohol well but makes it hard to drink because of the gravity, very light peach flavor, syrupy sweet. Odd beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Clear amber pour, white head. Cereal malts, sweetness, peach juice, light Brett yeast, and a bit floral. The peaches were not very fresh tasting, not refreshing, and not very tart. I personally didn’t like it much. Why do I buy Lips of Faith, most are failures.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Yeasty, malty aroma has a definite, if not overpowering, note of peach. Pours a lovely clear amber with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled cream head. Strongly yeasty flavor has subtle malty and peach notes with hints of citrus and - banana? Smooth, just slightly slimy texture has an OK amount of fizz. Sit back and enjoy a mouth full of the classic South!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little too subdued for me. Not quite funky enough, nor peachy enough. But the fact that it is not too sweet helps with the balanced brew. Next time more peaches please!
