12 ounce glass at Naja's Place in Redondo Beach yesterday for eight dollars, part of the Lips of Faith series from New Belgium and was not patient enough to wait for the bottles to come out, light golden orange color, one inch fluffy white head that lasts about five minutes, some lace at the beginning, aromas has grassy accents, sweet yeast, bananas, lemon juice, toasted bread, mild funk, caramel, and pears, starts off a little sweet with various fruits but mostly citrus, middle is chewy with bread and toasted caramel, finish is slightly dry with grains and some lemons in the aftertaste, gets sweeter as it warms and there is a lot of lemon and orange, by the end it is quite malty and citrusy, toasted, sweet, chewy, and crisp mouthfeel, medium bodied, lots of carbonation, taste did not linger very long, this stuff was refreshing even though it was sweet too, not heavy on the stomach, no alcohol in the flavor, goes down easy and is smooth, I love this style and am very critical of it, that said this was a good intepretation, this brewery continues to come out with tasty new brews, this hit the spot on a hot day and there is a good chance I will be back for more next weekend if it is still on, recommended

22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!

A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.

S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.

T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.

M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.

I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
