On tap at 2009 Stone Sour Fest. My favorite of the fest. Cloudy orange yellow color. Very sweet (I like sweet), which hides some of the sour. Tons of lychee aroma. Excellent

Pours hazy pale orange gold with a tiny off-white head. Smells sour and fruity, definite hints of lychee. Taste is of lychee at first and then quickly to sourness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild-to-average mouth-carbonation, New Belgium Lips of Faith - Tart Lychee finishes with a touch of cinnamon spiciness and some oakiness from barrel aging.

6/12/12- Pours a murky orange with a fluffy 2f head. Aromas of green apple and barnyard funk. Middling and almost syrupy with soft carbonation. Notes of green apple, earthiness, and subtle sweet spiciness that I imagine is from the cinnamon. Puckering finish. A very nice sour that has some interesting complexities. I'll gladly have this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2010 FoBAB 2009- this was a big surprise for me- my favorite beer of the day. Pours a muddy murky orange with a small white head. Nice floral aroma that was quite interesting with notes of hibiscus, cream, peach pie. Flavor was tart cherries and lemons. Awesome balance of fruit, wood, sourness, funk. this was frickin awesome. a stand out beer.

bottle. murky, cloudy dark gold with a small white head. tart nose makes the glands salivate. i’ll admit, i’m not usually too excited over sours, but this beer is freakin’ awesome! the first sour sips are welcomed on the back end with big, sweet, fruity candies. cherry and strawberry jolly rancher-like sweetness blended with a nice tart base beer. oh, and did i forget the cinnamon?..holy crap dude. medium body and just incredibly refreshing. NB has made some unbelievable beers recently in the LOF series!

This beer is nicely tart and citrusy. It was very refreshing - a good afternoon picnic beer.

Bottle from Jubilation in Albuquerque. Pours a pretty pale yellow, taste is sweet like a maitai, spicy like mulled wine, with the perfect note of sourness. I could drink this by the gallon -- surprised it's 7.5%! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
