Very tart, somewhat sour. The lychee flavor is very apparent , and it takes a lot to get this bad boy down. Pours a light gold brown, and leaves your taste buds spinning.

jenhesteer (234) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Cloudy golden hue with a small head. The aroma has notes of herbal and grassy hops, brett and cellar vapours, grapes and acidity, wood, and all spice. The taste was twangy and tart with a woody character. The spicy cinnamon finish is quite strange and interesting. The mouth feel is a bit of a let down, watery and soft. Overall just an otay brew and no where near the complexity of the Vieux Terroir I had before it.

0.65l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew from trade with ig88b. Again, huge thanks! In the glass this one pours a cloudy near glowing orange colored body with a medium sized slowly fading and sidesticking white head. Quite a interesting nose here. Itís both sweet and a little sour-ish. Tropical in a way with sweet fruit syrup and traces of both cinahnom stick, red currants, strawberries and hints of human skin. Itís definitely a interesting and quite good aroma this. Again, the taste is at first quite fruit sweet, then it turns and becomes more sour fruity in a way. Nice and oily in the mouth and itís just below average on the bubbles. Mild dry, really fruity and definitely interesting in the taste. Soft peppery sting, it has a lychee sweet tropical thing going on. Yeah, I definitely liked this one. 08.10.2014

"Lychee is an interesting fruit. This had a nice aroma and feel. Tart but not sour, no hint of an abv of any kind. Aroma slightly funky and fruity. Distinctly Unique. Flavor even better. Just another level of complexity. Very nice fruity sweet mellow sour ale. Cinnamon far more evident in the bottle 9/12"

On tap at Ashley's in Ann Arbor. The pour is a pale foggy gold color with a white head and some light lacing. The aroma is nicely sour with a light fruit presence and a good funk to it. Not overly complex or dominating in any sense of the word. The flavor is almost a little sweet before it gets sour. and the sourness is really light and reserved. The mouth feel is thin, decently carbonated without a discernible lingering aftertaste. Not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I stashed a few bottles of this in the back corner of my cellar a few years ago before I started rating. Turns out I never rated this! Clear orange copper pour with a white head. Really nice nose on this one, cinnamon and lychee. Nice tartness in the taste - it certainly is not more sour than it was a few years back, some of the fruit has faded. Oak and spice is now more pronounced, I think. An excellent beer and one of my favorites in the Lips of Faith series.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a medium plus sized fluffy white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, mild to moderate tropical fruit, decent tart character, cinnamon, wood tangy citrus. I would have liked to have tried this when it was fresh.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a hazy yellow color with a mostly lasted frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy sour yeast, spice and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a tingly texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour & fruit flavor with a medium to heavy fruit & sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

DrSilverworm (6571) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2014
22oz bottle. Shared by alexsdad06. Totally hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Dots of lace. Pretty awesome fruity spicy nose, unusual smell. Big cinnamon stick in the flavor, wood notes. Taste isnít as nice as the smell, a bit spicy, moderate bitter, moderate tart. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick, light dry finish. Pretty nice, interesting stuff overall. The cinnamon spiciness wears off as I go, just turns into a nice balanced mildly sour enjoyable beer.
