Bottle. Pours fairly clear orange with a medium sized white head that dissipates far too quickly. The aroma is very fruity: guava, papaya, orange peel, and probably passion fruit. The taste has an initial zip that makes you think saison and the dry finish. Between there is a ton of sweet orange and tropical fruits. This is pretty solid but unspectacular. Should be drier.

Taster on tap at HopCat in East Lansing. Clear golden color. Little white head. Some ropes and dots of lace. Big belgian yeast character dominates the flavor. Aside from that, passion fruit, and belgian candy sugar. Stronger sweet taste, light spice. Kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Alright fruit saison. A bit too fruity, I think... I expect better from the Lips of Faith series

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2013
22oz bottle. Poured a golden color with a smaller sized off white head. Fruity, herbal, and one I just all around really didn’t care for ...

Two. Golden orange with off white head. Smells of sweet fruit, spice, and booze. Flavor is sweet pear, spice, booze. Solid

Beergeek23322 (2042) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2013
December 2011. 22 oz. bottle. Amber color with a white head. Spice, yeast, malt and fruity aromas. Flavors of light fruit, peppers and spice. The tropical fruit doesn’t show well. Slight tart on the finish.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2013
22oz served into a Duvel tulip. A - Pours a brassy amber with 2 fingers of cream colored head. The head maintains well and forms a thin ceiling. Very little lacing. S - Spicy Belgian yeast, pears, peaches, lemon, hay, green apples, banana taffy, fruit bread, caramel malt. T - Stone fruit upfront-mainly peaches, candy sweet malt, hints of banana taffy, biscuity, peppery alcohol hits towards the end. Finishes wet for a Saison. M - Prickly carbonation, light alcohol heat, heavy bodied. It reminded me of peach cobbler. It was pretty sweet and didn’t really finish dry enough. I wouldn’t seek this one out. Serving type: bottle 05-20-2012

1FastSTi (3285) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Pours to an orange body with a fully dissipating off white head. Aroma of white pepper and dank basements. Sweet prickly pear on the nose too. Dash of cardamom. The flavor is quite sweet. Similar to red raspberries with prickly pear cactus juice. Almost a fruity bubblegum. Medium body. Lingering sweetness.

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle from BevMo: The liquid is a simple golden honey color while a firm development of head quickly thins out on top. In the aroma, it definitely packs a punch of spicy Belgian yeast true to the farmhouse style. There is also a notice of succulent ripe fruit in the nose such as pear, banana, and perhaps mango. The drink is fruity yet delivers a heavy dashing of spice making this a sweet and peppery combination of flavors that stays true to the Belgian sasion style but still having an American twist of things.

I was not very impressed with this beer. It had a very light mouth feel for the abv and overall did not go down to smooth.

nuplastikk (4138) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Alchemy. Orange-red, thin oily head. Rather mellow in terms of body. Some odd pungent blood orange tones. Pear, spices, golden malt tones, a hint darker. More in line with a spice bomb than a traditional Saison. Smooth body, a touch mineral. The pear is mellow, but steady. Sweet, not tart. Unique, enjoyable.
