Bottle or should I say bottles a 2004 vintage 12oz and a new 22oz lips of faith. I am don’t know how to rate this so I will just do a over view. new one first. Pours out red with a pink head. Aroma of light funk, cherries, and some tartness. Taste much the same. 2004 pours out more clear with a small head. Aroma was of sweet cherries and light tartness. Taste more of the sweetness and some wood. Thanks Toby and ditmier for the side by side.

bomber 8% consumed 9/6/09.
clear watered down cherry juice colored pour with a short lived white head.
a sweet cherry smell sticks out in front of a musty basement-like stink... other notes include grass, wet wood, flowers and some spiciness.
the palate is surprisingly dry throughout yet it shows a nice level of fruitiness. flavors of cherry, cinnamon-like spiciness, flowers, cream and must dominate. it is tart and dry but nowhere near sour. a dry herbaceous numbing quality keeps the flavor from becoming too one dimensional.
medium bodied with a sharp mouth feel which smoothes to become creamy as it warms up. 7/3/7/3/14/3.4

Fruity aroma. Copper red coloured a little sour and fruity with a little dryness in a crisp lasting finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very lovely cherry red into a champagne flute. No lasting head. Aroma of pure dark cherries. This "beer" would be so much better if the cherry taste lasted all the way through. Unfortunately, an odd, unwelcome, crappy lager feel works its way into the beginning of the flavor (tough the rest of each taste is great). Appropriate carbonation and a great mouthfeel. Quite drinkable.

The pour was brown with lots of red highlights. A short ring of off-white foam appeared and there was a touch of lacing. The aroma was vinegar, malt and cherries. The flavor was more vinegar and wood than sour cherry. Thin to medium bodied mouthfeel. OK. Became a bit laborious.

22oz. Bottle (As "Lips of Faith Transatlantique Kriek" at 8%ABV): Aroma of cherries, funk, light cheese, and lambic. Poured purple/ruby/magenta in color with a tiny, purple head that disappeared very quickly. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet and light to medium tart. Tastes of cherries, light medicine, funk, light acetic acid, Luden’s cherry cough drops, and a hint of wood. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Cherry, funk, and slight medicine finish. 8%ABV is not noticeable.

Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours dark red with pinkish white, very thin head. Nose is tart cherry, clean, sweet cherry, and some spiciness. Flavor is like a sour Belgian Red. Lots of cherry, some tartness, and some sweetness.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dramatic beer. Poured with a giant pink foamy frothy textured head wth a load a lace. Color is clear slightly brown tinged rose red. Aroma is a mild cherry with a little spice. Flavor is malty cherry pie, more on the sour side. Clean. Body is good and ditto carbonation. Finish is decent. Not overdone at all. Easy and balanced. Tough to be a session in this style. Good beer overall though.
