Heard this was different from bottle compared to tap. Pours solid haze purulent yellow. No foam save some surface etch. Nose is overdone with the cinnamon. Some tart and sweetness in the back, but this time, cinnamon dominates (waaay different than tap for me). Tart with more cinnamon and some lychee juice to help pucker me up. Medium on full bodied with light carb and a semi dry finish. It’s quite the novelty. 2/2.5/3/2/2.5 - Serving type: bottle 06-13-2012

Indra (2619) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2013
22oz., 2012 bottling. Aroma of citrus fruit, lychee, light sweetness, straw and lemon, along with lighter notes of straw, lemon, yeast spice, tartness, wood and some floral touches in the background. Opaque peach in color with a slight, fading head. Flavor profile is sweet, tart, fruity and floral, some mild tartness and acidity, along with a slight degree of bitterness late. Mild carbonation and very gentle acidity on the palate, surprisingly light in feel overall in fact, body is medium. Interesting, not as complex or sour/tart as anticipated, however.

Westmeister (1754) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Tasting note scrounge. Approximate sample date was Sept 2012. At the time this was the best Lips of Faith brew I’d had (now been outdone by Le Terrior). Fantastic light tartness with subtle spice (cinnamon perhaps) and notes of strawberries and apples.

Lukaduke (2194) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Pours a hazy cloudy peachy yellow color with a finger of gaseous bubbles. The nose is full of tropical fruit punch notes and tart rhubarb. The palate follows with a round full mouthfeel thats juicy sweet tropical fruit just like the nose and that additional lychee tartness that to me having only had a caned lychee a few times read almost rhubarb like. Chuggable not overly complex but a pleasure to drink.

Ontape (304) - Valley Village, California, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Bottle. Fun brew, great with Thai food. Lightly sour with prominent lychee, the cinnamon coves through eventually. A bit thin with very light carbonation. Pretty tasty, would drink again.

Draft sample at WLL KWANZE day. Pours light yellow with sour nose and initial taste. Maybe a hint of strawberry in here. Nicely sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A: Looks nice. like a golden brown. A: smells complex. cinnomon, sour. A little light T: a little light, sour, tart, cinnomon hint in there. P: Sour on the finish. A change of pace. Overall a nice beer. some very nice sour fruity notes plus a bit of earthiness to keep it balanced.
