Poured from 22 oz. bottle into a New Belgium Globe glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head that quickly recede into a few thin patches. Lacing is fairly light.

Smell: A sweet and fairly tart aroma. Big scent of peaches upfront with some citrus lemon and orange. Some funky Belgian yeast, Brett, and earthy grass. Sweet molasses, candied sugars, and bready malts. Definitely has that typical Saison scent with that earthy farmhouse element. A pretty sweet smell, but not cloying. Pretty interesting.

Taste: Like the smell leads, a peach forward Saison with lots of grassy funk. Belgian yeast and tart peaches upfront are followed by good notes of citrus orange and lemon zest. Brett along with some molasses and Belgian candied sugars. Lots of earthy grass and barnyard funk. A little bit of pepper. Some bready malts add some sweetness in the background with some notes of caramel and biscuit. Sweet but actually nicely balanced by the funky spice. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Slightly syurpy but very smooth. Can't really notice the high alcohol content.

Overall: A pretty good Saison. I was fearful that this would be sickly sweet, but its far from that. Its sweet but fairly balanced. The peach and Brett add a nice and interesting twist.

22 oz bottle poured into a New Belgium glass

A- A slightly hazy golden copper with a small white head.

S- Tart peaches, some lemon, funk, earthy spices.

T- Very malty, mainly sweet malts, fairly peachy, some funk, some molasses, touch of alcohol but not off putting. Flavors are missing some balance.

M- Fairly smooth, medium body.

O- I am enjoying this a lot more as this warms up. Not my favorite Lips of Faith beer, but still good. Probably will pick up again.

Review from notes.

A: Pours an orange body with slight golden tints to it with a small off-white head that has decent retention. A small cap forms on top and random bits of lacing cling to the glass.

S: Some light peach upfront with a malty sweetness on the back, presumably from the molasses. Slight funk mixed in.

T: More peach in the beginning mixed with a bit of citrus. This is followed up by a pretty heavy malt sweetness. There is a bit of straw/mustiness mixed in as well.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Not a bad beer, but was hoping for a bit more in terms of the peaches. The entire time I drank it, I wanted the beer to be much tarter as well.

some how the brightness of the honey colored body shines thru the cloudy appearance it has while being poured. a fingers worth of bright white sudsy head slowly settles into a crescent moon shape on top of the beer, lacing is nill. lemon and peach are the first to assault my nose. bottle says that brett is in ther but my nose can't pick it up. Taste is really tart and sweet. along with the fruits, the molasses adds to the sweetness. mouthfeel seems a tad heavy to me for a saison, probably the molasses i'm picking up on. it's nicely carbonated and has a slight stickieness to it. once again i couldn't tell that there was brett in there at all. wish it was more mouth puckering tart and less sweet. none the less it is still very drinkable and refreshing.

From a 22 oz bottle into a tulip.

A-The color is golden honey with just a slight haze to the liquid. The head is a decent one-finger-plus plume of off-white foam. Unfortunately, the head goes away pretty quickly and doesn't leave much in the way of lacing. Very little (if any) carbonation to be seen.

S-You certainly get peaches...and a little sweet yeast...but the peaches are off just a bit. I also detect hints of dry straw and funk. Quite sweet.

T-The taste mostly follows the nose, but in a bad way. The peaches are very present, but they have an almost rotten character to them; like sour milk. The alcohol is also there, but (again) not in a good way. It contributes to the sour/rotten character.

M-The beer I had was pretty flat. Medium body. This beer lacked that typical saison effervescence.

O-I was pretty disappointed with this. I'm not sure where NB went wrong, but I'll take a pass on this one. Surprisingly, my wife seems to enjoy it...at least it was not a total waste.
