Drank on 7/4/10
22 oz. Poured into NB tulip.
A- amber orange colored ale with a thin 1/8" head which disappeared to leave a hurricane shaped froath and halo. Continually effervescent.
S- decernable herbal nose is enticing, definite hints of lemon and a somewhat fruity aroma. Mild smooth whifs of caramel malts.
T- good malt backbone comes through smoothly. But its the lemon verbana herbal character which lingers on your tongue. Fuit and spice comes through in the finish.
MF- tongue coating slight dryness lingers with the herbal finish. Light body with good tingle on the tongue that's slightly numbing.
D- Nice belgian-esque american craft effort. The lips of faith series continues to produce inventive one-offs which I love to sample. But I think ill continue to buy them one at a time.

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.
