3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pluots. I love pluots. So I had to try this. The whole ’Lips of Faith’ series has obviously gotten way out of control over the years, where as back in the day (that day being around ’06/’07) pretty much every LoF brew that came out was banging. These days it’s hit or miss. This one was kind of in the middle. Big Belgiany nose, body, mouthfeel...mostly in like a Belgian golden department, yet with this polite and fairly subtle flavor of pluots throughout. Could taste it enough to make it fun, but overall I’m not sure I’d buy this again. At least it wasn’t $15.99!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to tulip
Aroma of plum, peach, lemon, and overripe cherry. Clear yellow with a thin bubbly, white head. Plum, lemon, and yeast. For me, a miss, I couldn't finish a glass.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Apricot, wheat and banana? To much weird fruit going on. Clear gold no head. Sweet juice, again too much going on and sweet and sticky. Not a fan.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber bottle poured a clear golden hue w/ a small fully diminishing white head. Moderate aroma of a sweet white Rhine wine. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a moderate sour finish. Tastes are apricot, plum, white grape, dough. Medium bodied, flat carbonation, syrupy texture, and a moderate alcoholic warmth in the finish, the dryness of the finish balances the texture of the mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear orange with white head. Smells fruity, sweet. Tastes very interesting, strong but a good sweetness to balance out the alcohol. Has a slightly sour touch to it. Crisp. Interesting, unique. Good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22oz bottle in a flute. Pours golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of the fruits, spicy yeast, a good amount of caramel malts, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a lot of fruit. Average texture. An interesting beer, but the flavor of the fruit is not for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bottle. Pours clear gold with very minimal head. Full bodied, but also light, sweet, and dry. Like a fruit wine. Not too sweet. Hints of apricot, peaches, plums, champagne. Low/medium carbonation. Smells like alcohol and some candied sugar.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle- Pours clear golden with a very small head that I had to rigorously pour just to get, zero lacing. The aroma is fruity and tart, never heard of an apriplum (and yes I did just make that name up), but sounds unique and possibly good, it smells like tart fruit juice such as cranberry only without the bitterness. The taste is tart fruit juice, this could be some kind of sour ale, there is a mild interesting lingering bitterness after the swallow, almost like a chokecherry. Interesting beer, no masterpiece, but good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. This beer looks kind of like champagne and is clear light golden and lots of carbonation bubbles floating up. An almost white head is fizzy and noisy and leaves a thin layer. I smell fruit that includes apples, white wine barrel, and apricots. The flavor begins with some spice and the alcohol shows immediately. Yeast is interesting and has a bit of a wild effect. The feel is slick and smooth. This is kind of like drinking a mix of a cider and a wine and offers the sweetness of the former and the dryness of the latter. Some grape skins are tasted and pale malts are the backbone. This series is kind of getting old.
