3.68/5 rDev -0.3%
Served on tap. Pours a clear straw color with a nice beige head. The nose has fruity malts, peppery yeast, and a subtle spices. Taste is a bit light for me, but is well balanced. Mostly powered by the wheat malts and tropical fruits. Light body drinks easy. A decent attempt at the style, but nothing special. A good session brew.

One of the Lip's of Faith brews from New Belgium. Described as a Belgian strong pale ale brewed with ginger and grains of paradise.
Served on tap at the brewery tasting room. It has a pale golden yellow color and great clarity. The small amount of white head diminishes quickly but leaves some nice lacing behind.
The aroma has a slightly sweet fruity character but not much beyond that.
Flavor is sweet up front but finishes dry. Melon and white grapes are in the description and I pick up both in the taste. Good spicy notes from the ginger and possibly the Belgian yeast as well. It's similar to a spicy white wine, maybe chardonay. Grassy, almost earthy at times, and slightly sour, it would make a great summer sipper.
Mouthfeel is smooth with relatively low carbonation for the style, which I like. The alcohol is well hidden and it's surprisingly easy to drink given that the tap master said it was something like 8.3 percent ABV.

Sampled at the New Belgium Tap Room
A: Light golden with a white, porous head. Light lacing.
S: Light spice character with a mild graininess.
T: A strong mix of spices with a black pepper flavor standing out. A slight white wine character. Boozy and slightly astringent. Flavor is fleet and quick to dissipate from the palate.
M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A clean, dry finish.
D: A decent brew, but somewhat bland and lacking in character. Overall, a bit rough and unrefined, though there could be potential in this one.
