Served in a tumbler.
My one-time distro rep convinced me to crack open a bottle of this to see how it was holding up. (And, yes, he already had done so himself and had made a judgment.) It pours a lightly hazy straw topped by two fingers of white froth. The nose comprises mild cobweb, earth, a spritz of lemon peel, black pepper, and general greenery. Everything's sorta/kinda faint, but at the same time fairly assertive. The taste certainly asserts itself, but mostly like an insufferable jackass at the bar: mounds of dirt, dusty cobwebs, waxy lemon rind, and a blast of past-its-prime Belgian yeast envelops my tongue, refusing to retreat no matter how vociferously I try to repel its advances. "Take a hint, dammit," I think, partially aloud, "I just wanna have a nice drink here and enjoy myself." Not gonna happen, apparently. This stuff blatantly hurts, but it seems oblivious to the fact. Poor guy. Someday he'll find out the hard way... The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fairly dry finish. Overall, my belief is that this stuff peaked a while ago and nobody bothered to say anything. This has got to be the worst experience I've yet had with a Lips of Faith offering.
