I bought a single bottle of this at Woodman's in Janesville, WI in Spring 2011 for $5.79.

Pours a copper/amber color with slight carbonation to it. Scent is that of sweet malts and spices. The taste is rather smooth and similar to a good Oktoberfest beer. Plenty of good spice taste. A great brew and worth of being a $6 beer. Being a limited time deal, I had to try it!

Served from bottle into a New Belgium globe. Poured red-orange with a half finger off-white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, BIG wheat, BIG grain, spice, and big sweetness. The flavor was of sweet malt, spices, grain, subtle tea, sugar, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. With this being my first brew from the style I can honestly say that I don’t have a refined palate for this style, however, I was not a massive fan of it. The aroma was very sharp when it came to sweetness/maltiness. The flavor was a little bit better with a bit more balance. That was a very welcomed change as based on the aroma, I was rather concerned once I smelled it. Glad I got the chance to try this one though, but don’t think I will go out of my way to do so again.

Was excited when I found this. Really interested in the ancient beer styles lately. Bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Pours a hazy orange amber, with 2 fingers width of thick foamy off white head, that leaves a cap on top and no lacing on the glass.

S- Bready, lots of sweet malt. Slightly fruity. Not getting any hops on the nose.

T- Sweet caramel, kind of nutty. Sweet breads. Taste is crisp. Very malty. The thick breadiness is enjoyable.

M- Very thick. This beer coats the mouth. The flavor lingers a while, and there is a warming feeling from the alcohol content.

O- Another solid offering from the Lips of Faith series. Would recommend picking one up if you find it.

Pours a light clear copper, lots of floaties in the bottle which I was careful to avoid. Smooth pour nets a soft white one finger head with decent retention. The head folds in on itself leaving small wisps of tight lace on the glass.

Toasted and doughy with a bit rye character and white grape. No hop character to speak of, much like a mild amber or a vienna lager.

Mild grains, cookie dough, raw cocoa and peppery rye on the forefront that welcomes in a slight earthy hops that quickly moves to an acidic white grape and dulled lemon cream finish as it attempts to dry.

Mouth coating is a little unpleasant here as it feels thick and keeps the acidity on the tongue for some time. Other than that average body and carbonation with well hidden alcohol.

An interesting style but not one to revisit. Mundane cross between an amber ale and a dark lager with some fruit notes thrown in. More rye or juniper flavors would have done alot for this beer. Drinkable, hides it's alcohol well and reasonably priced yet middle of the road offering
