COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and youíll be sipping this ale while visions of pluots dance in your head. Pluots? A hybrid of apricots and plums that impart a subtle sweetness. Ferment that with a wild Belgian yeast strain and you have a fruity yet spicy nature with a body reminiscent of red wine. Delicious.

Tap at the Busy Bee in Raleigh. Pours golden, thick-looking with a tiny white head. Nose is apricots, plums, bread, and a bit of bile. Lots more vomit in the taste. And booze. Thick. Not so good.

DiarmaidBHK (3393) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Draft at Brixx Asheville. Pours yellow with no head. Slight fruitiness on the nose. Honestly I donít eat a lot of apricots or plums so Iím clueless as to what this tastes like except cloying and artificial. Finishes clean and it hides the alcohol well which makes of feel a bit like an alcopop.

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Tap at Brixx Asheville - pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity like stone fruits. Taste is sweet with a ton of alcohol burn on the finish. Good, but too much boozy burn.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bomber - pour is fizzy but headless - it kind of looks like cream soda, which is ironic because it kind of smells like cream soda, too - very syrupy sweet nose, with a lot of vanilla and sugary character not unlike the cheap syrups some people like to put in their coffee - there is also a fair amount of booziness, light plumy fruitiness - mouthfeel is simultaneously spritzy and oily - very syrupy sweet up front - the fruit is fairly strong - some tanginess and acidity late try desperately to balance, but fail to get the job done - very boozy, alcoholic finish - I donít know why I keep buying these lips of faith beers - I canít remember the last time I really enjoyed one.

Had on Draft @ NoBi, cheap beer- $4.50 for a 16oz pint. .. pours a deep gold .. . mild foam .. . apricot, booze, syrup, and more booze .. . sickly sweet mouth .. . took a while to finsh, over an hour- just to big for its boots .. . when you were born, you were, for however brief an amount of time, the youngest person on the planet.
