Bottle shared by John on Sunday morning after TAP-NY, in his hotel room. While Ed did not have on any pants. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Soft banana, toffee and some gentle floral aromas. Spicy and tangy. Tastes a bit like the flavor that occurs when you drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. Tart and tangy. Warming alcohol on the finish. Very interesting. shrubber85 (11408) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle. Orange/peach malt and light alcohol aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet-tart orange/peach malt and light alcohol flavor. Very tasty. hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle... Clear amber pour with a tiny, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is spicy, floral and fruity. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. The flavor is tart, fruity and floral accompanied by a hint of black pepper. Tangy finish. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Yellow/orangish pour, white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, citrus fruit, sweet honeyed notes. Flavor is tart and yeasty, unripe peaches. Very interesting. if the tartness is something they intended its awesome. Im guessing it is. DocLock (10702) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bpmber shared at Craft Ale 20-Aug-2013. Poured hazy golden with white clingy head. Nose was black peppery hibiscus, funky yeasty malt, hopcitrus. Tasted complex, hoppy, citric, with notes if black pepper, hibiscus, and a complex, lively mouthfeel. This one was stellar.

Bottle @ home picked up at RJ’s in Fort Collins. Pours a dark golden appearance with a tan/khaki head. The aroma is intense and a bit of an enigma- tons of spicy yeast, cat piss, light diaper, metal, light smoke (huh?), tropical fruits, and earth. A bit goopy, somewhat boozy, ultra thick and intense tart tropical fruits (passionfruit, pineapple, starfruit), very juicy, toasty malty, a touch smoky, very floral flavor. There’s a slightly lychee-like element to the beer as well with a big tartness than follows the finish. What the fuck is going on here? I was more excited for this New Belgium collaboration than any since the Alpine one, but it’s all over the map and not very palatable. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2013
Tap at Barley Johns. Clear light amber pour with a spotty white head. Tart unripened tropical fruit, flowers, and yeast. Zesty. Good carbonation. Finishes dry. DuffMan (10435) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. My wife and I were excited to try this-- we used to eat fresh feijoa fruit in New Zealand. This play as a very solid, estery triple with an added juiciness and a tart kick at the end. Extremely drinkable! alexsdad06 (10432) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. The aroma has a big herbal/floral note, citrus juice, doughy malt, Belgian yeast and an odd note I can only assume is the feijoa fruit. The flavor has much of the same with some grapefruit like bitterness to the finish. A different spin on a tripel. phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Pour from a bottle at New Belgium. Weird how all other Lips of Faith were on tap except the collaborations with DDC and Vivant. Anyway, this one pours a cloudy golden color with a small but lasting white head. Citrus and tropical fruits, caramel and pale malts, mild spice, sugar, and a good dose of herbs. Definitely a hoppy tripel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I couldn’t bring myself to go 8 in the aroma or flavor, but there’s an x-factor to this one I couldn’t put my finger on and really liked.
