Cross pollinate your tastebuds with Belgian imagination and youll be sipping this ale while visions of pluots dance in your head. Pluots? A hybrid of apricots and plums that impart a subtle sweetness. Ferment that with a wild Belgian yeast strain and you have a fruity yet spicy nature with a body reminiscent of red wine. Delicious.

July 19th, 2013 - New Belgiums adding pluots to the ingredient list, roping in obscure fruits that I myself have only seen at markets a few times. But the flavor must be interesting enough for it to catch brewers attention. Pouring this version of the Lips of Faith yields a slightly hazy, slightly golden brew with almost no head to decorate the top, and to protect it from the harsh light of day. The smell is, at its core, a wheat bear, but decorated with the scents of ru, raisin and banana fosters. The vanilla component is noticeable too, paired as it is with banana based dessert flavors like banana pudding. The flavor is quite strong, dropping those gentler banana notes with a sickly sweet booziness, and a sugar note that tastes more like concentrated pear juice mixed with concentrated white grape juice. Each sip is a spoonful of sugar that does not go down well, leaving me enjoying the scent much more than the flavor.

It poured a pale golden color with no head. The aroma was of fruit like a red wine. The taste was of a red wine with a little less body and more fruit.

Poured from a bottle as a hazy yellow color. Smell is fruity and taste is sweet, with what I thought was a terrible aftertaste. I'm surprised this has been rated so highly. Maybe I got a bad one, but I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(bottle - 22 oz) Orange pour with a thin white head. Sweet fruity aroma with some light yeast underneath. You can definitely taste the fruit in it. Sweetness from the pluot (I definitely taste more apricot than plum) with a smooth malt backbone and a fruity malty finish.

MrBeerFanatic (1050) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Pours a light pale yellow with a fizzy quick head. Aromas of slight hay, sweet plumb, light alcohol, slight cherry. Flavors of slight cherry, slight hay, slight hint of alcohol, a hint of plumb. Medium to high sweetness which comes through as slightly artificial. All the flavors and aromas seem rather light for a strong beer which allows the alcohol to come through. Decent but not great.

hopscotch (11014) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle... Pours clear and deeply yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is juicy and fruity, but offers yeast-driven spiciness and light breadiness as well. Medium-bodied with lazy carbonation. The flavor is fruity, mildly tart and moderately sweet with a slightly phenolic, spicy note. Finishes juicy, tangy and lightly spicy.

"Thicker than expected with a good dose of belgian yeast. Only slightly funky and tart from the brett with ample fruity sweetness. While it may have been even better at, say, 7-8%, this was yet another LOF beer that we all enjoyed."
