3.68/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A 650 mL bomber from the Wine Source. In a mini tulip.

A: The saison is amber, a melange of orange and golden brown. Still transparent, I can clearly see whatever I put on the other side of the glass. The first pour generated a small white head, not much lacing, that quickly dissapated; a thin wisp of head is all that remains.

S: Mildly tart fruit juices mix with musty Belgian yeast. Green apples, ginger and lemongrass are strong, plenty of sweetness to go around. Light breadiness follows before transitioning back to the fruits. The aromas are just wigged out enough to be a saison.

T: Sweetly spiced, the pears and passion fruit add a mildly tart juciness. The yeast adds more fruitiness with a bit of an edge. As with the other fruited Lips of Faith offerings, the sweetness overruns most of the Belgian aspects, although a saison is so nebulous that it tends to do okay. There are light candi sugars, adding to the fruity sweetness. Breadiness is faint in the aftertaste. Interesting with a bit of prickly tartness.

M: Another sweet fruit beer, perhaps a little too much so. But hey, I'm just happy to have access to the Lips of Faith series.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Had on tap at Max's (from notes)

A: Copper with light lacing.

S: Lots of yeast and farmhouse scents. Wet blanket.

T: A bit of funk with subtle citrus but mostly farmhouse. Subdued odd earthy flavors/aftertaste.

M: Nice and prickly. Coarse bubbly.

O: I think the earthiness came from the prickly pear.

Serving type: on-tap
