Draft at Brixx Asheville. Pours yellow with no head. Slight fruitiness on the nose. Honestly I don’t eat a lot of apricots or plums so I’m 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.

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.

Quite sweet with peach flesh, vanilla, tart plum skin, prune juice, and raisin. Honey-baked biscuit, yeast, and caramel. Not terrible.

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 don’t know why I keep buying these lips of faith beers - I can’t remember the last time I really enjoyed one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours like a semi fizzy apple juice with some off white head. Smells of plum, apricot, sweet malt and a bit of spicy alcohol. Taste is mostly just sweet fruit with just a hint of spice. They hide the 10% really well. I could see this brew being dangerous as it goes down easily. The mouth feel is a bit of carbonation but largely oily. Laces really well on the sides of my glass.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Pale golden pour with a smaller white head. Wow - the plum and apricot hits you square in the face. Very sweet - overly so.
