650ml bottle, 2013 vintage, poured into a New Belgium Globe.

The beer pours a hazy straw color, hues of apricot and gold with a nice, fluffy white head that rises about 2 fingers high and has good retention while leaving a soapy network of lace behind. The aroma is very earthy, piney hop, tangy citrus, bretty funk, oaky wood and some light, fleshy ripe fruit at the back end. These expressions are more pronounced on the tongue, lots of fresh fruit, apricots, peaches with some light berry flavors, bretty funk, bright citrus, a little wildflower before oak, bitter hop spice, resinous pine and a little vinegar make for an earthy finish. The body is crisp, lively with good carbonation, a touch watery vs expectation, coats the mouth decently well with a dry finish.

Verdict: A very nice sour ale from New Belgium, one of my favorite's that they make. The hops are a great twist and really bring out the earthy and bretty qualities while not overshadowing the fruit and floral qualities. Cheers to New Belgium, I hope they continue to feature this in the Lips of Faith series.
