A- hazed golden color with a white head.

S- medicinal peach aromas with a metallic note. Earthy sweaty gym sock like brett in the middle. Some cake like malt sweetness with the citrus and spice on the finish.

T- tastes like an infected home brew from a novice brewer. Metallic medicinal with a sweaty gym sock Brett. Cloying sweet malt character with astringent lemon cleaner like flavor. Spice on the finish with a band-aid aftertaste.

MF- slick oily mouthfeel with a medium body. Average carbonation.

D- terrible drinkability.

22oz bomber poured into a pint glass. Picked this one up for about $9.

Pours a darken golden color with a redish tint. Head is small maybe, half a finger and an off-white in color. Initial smell was of peaches but as I drank it I got more Belgian yeast and less fruit. Taste was very little peach, I actually get some banana. Also, I feel that it is some normal saison flavors mixed with an off bitterness, that doesn't go well. Mouthfeel is nothing special if anything the aftertaste is not pleasant and the carbonation feels odd in the mouth.

This tasted very off from the other reviews. Not sure if the bottle I had was bad, but it sure tasted that way to me. This one was very close to a drain pour.

Overall, this has been my least favorite of the lip of faith series and I would not bother trying this one if you haven't already.

Cloudy amber with a one finger off white head which fades to 1/4 inch and holds, leaving spotty lacing. Smells like peaches, lemon, biscuit malt and some Brett.

Tastes mostly sweet, due to the peach juice. There is also some bitter lemon flavor, biscuit malt, and a little funk from the Brett. It doesn't seem like there is enough Brett to make this truly tart. There is just enough to pick it up.

Medium bodied with average carbonation, and it finishes dry.Not a very successful beer in my opinion. It may have benefited from some time in the cellar, but probably not very much. I don't think this should be classified as a Saison, but since it is in that category, I am judging it against other Saisons.

Served in a tumbler.

Gotta love the hot fire being spat from the side of the bottle! This stuff pours a mostly clear sunset gold topped by a finger of off-white foam. The nose comprises peach syrup, toasted wheat, light lemon rind, and a hint of Brett-y funk. The taste holds notes of stale caramel, dried maple syrup, plastic-lined peaches, dirty cobwebs, and a kiss of Indian corn. Wow, did things go downhill in a hurry! The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, things were just carried out poorly here. While the mix sounded like a good one, the reality that presented itself on my tongue (and those of a few friends as well) was radically different, a world in which a violent clusterfuck of a party just wouldn't stop, no matter how early the neighbors had to get up the next morning...
