new lips of faith series brew. this is everything i like in a sour. pours a surprisingly cloudy pale yellow wheaty color, with a one inch white fizzy head. smell is interesting, definitely tart and citric, like pink grapefruit and lemons. also some brett style sour notes. flavor is very very sour, but also tart as the name suggests. its quite acidic and puckery, but not as dry as some of them. there are fruity notes which i have to assume are from the lychees, and even a hint of oak. it says brewed with cinnamon, but i cant pick it up in either the smell or the taste, maybe just a touch in the finish, but it is definitely quite understated. i really love the feel of this beer, effervescent carbonation, medium body, and all kinds of attitude. the tartness is a welcomed addition to the sour beer palate, and this may well be my favorite lips of faith brew to date. i enjoyed it with some smoked asian chicken thighs over a spinach red cabbage mango salad. really a nice early summer beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Hazy light blond body, with a bit of nice lace.

Tart, kinda tangy vague funky nose. Nice.

Awesome tart taste that nails the lychee flavor. Lingers a bit

Pretty standard feel. Carby.

This works really well, quite refreshing and a bang-on good sour.
