This was a decent beer, though it certainly doesn’t give the impression of an abt. It seems more like a slightly more thick golden ale. It’s just kind of boring, surprisingly. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy darker amber color with a slight reddish tinge and an off-white head. Nose has some dark cherry elements to it and just a hint of roasting. Taste is a little sour, but very light. Not bad... Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Sampled on draft at don’t look back. Probably the worst possible pairing with tacos, but whatever. Even on its own, this is a very weird bird. Big and boozy and alcohol burn, but past that is fig and plum and medicinal cherry. Cough syrup finish. Really didn’t care for it. thetmaxx (927) - West Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Poured from the bottle, poured slightly cloudy and red. Aroma is sweet and of alcohol. Flavor also shows the abv. There is some hint of the dates, but it’s so sweet! It’s OK, but I don’t enjoy these sweet beers. bucs572000 (237) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2013
I was disappointed with this beer. It was pretty much aroma less. The flavors that were discribed on the bottle were not prevalent at all. I will give new Belgium tons of credit for the lips of faith line but they missed on this one.

March 3, 2013 - bottle from AV3. Copper pour with big time head that lasted and some lacing. Aroma was cherry, banana, dark fruit and some alcohol. Taste starts sweet and artificial fruit, then a blast of alcohol comes with a slight undertone of coffee. Medium bodied and smooth. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours a murky red with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of dark fruits, cherry and peppery Belgian yeast. Flavor of tart cherries, dark fruits and some Belgian yeast character. Unfortunately it does taste a bit like cough medicine. It sounded interesting. No coffee present. Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2013
A little muggy looking, like a home brew. Cough syrup nose with a little stale malt. So strong and harsh with sticky, syrupy sweetness. Some bitterness to it as well. Damn that % is apparent. I’d say stead clear overall. burgy (460) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Cascaraquad - nutty, lager, sour notes. Malty sweet with a lager like finish. Mild sour feel to it. Low bitters and no hop feel. Red amber with a sticky head. Sits like rot gut in the belly. BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Surprised that they bottled this one. Terrible in every sense of the word. Crimson/garnet/ruby-red pour with a moderate eggshell head. Cherry skin, grape juice, caramel, honey-baked bread, and bitter coffee. Does that sound good? It tastes terrible...avoid!
