Pours a cloudy golden grey with a big white head that lingers and laces.
Smells of sweet, tropical fruit with some lactic sourness and funk next to hints of spice. Smells of acidic light fruit in a good way. Really nice aroma.
Taste is up front tart stone fruit that goes into a more balanced yet acidic middle before ending on the slightest hint of bitterness and cinnamon spice, which comes through mostly in the nose. Quite interesting, sour, and tasty. Really refreshing beer. Reminds of other NB sours in a good way.
Lighter bodied with higher carbonation is spot on. The alcohol is really well hidden.
This one is a real winner for Lips of Faith and one of the better NB sours I've had. It is refreshing, tart, with tropical fruit notes and spice.

22oz bottle split with my wife. Served in a Prairie teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator!
A - Glowing orange apricot, with fine bubbled white head. Semi hazy.
S - Lactic and salty minerals, tropical fruit, lychee?, bubblegum, grassy hay, musty wood,
T - Candy tartness upfront, muted pink lemonade, tropical fruit, pineapple, soft caramel malts underneath. The sweetness builds toward the finish while the tartness fades but finishes dry and very crisp and refreshing.
M - Sharp carbonation, light to medium body, crisp and refreshing feel.
Nice balance of sweet and tart both of which are fairly mild. It's not puckering sour but it has a nice tart edge to it. Some woody funk and a nice fruit profile. Crisp and refreshing, a great summer time beer
