Honestly I have no idea how other people have given this beer high ratings. I'm in a room of six people and everyone hates it. It is literally undrinkable! I love La Fin Du Monde and other trippels but this beer was acrid, sour, and almost spoiled tasting... Would NOT not not recommend for anyone. The hibiscus and fruit were just not a good flavor in the beer. Open to trying other well-rated Lips of Faith beers but this one was not for me.

3.91/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Poured from 750ml bottle into Chimay goblet.
A - Medium pumpkin/amber gold with a lacey white head.
S - Buttery, floral, sweet toasted bread.
T - Juicy orange, not peel, citrusy hops, herbal/floral finish.
M - Crisp, tart, refreshing.
A unique beer to be sure. The juicy citrus aspect was surprising but not unwelcome. There are notes of a Flanders red in there as well.

3.84/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance - light color with a nice white head that hung in there for about half the glass.
Smell - I did not get the smell of a triple, but it did have a distinctive floral scent. it was quite intriguing.
Taste - it had a slight sour note that I did not expect and the fruity notes did remind me of a triple that was lacking in the smell, or maybe my olfactory senses were not working very well this day.
Mouthfeel - the juxtaposition of the sour note and the fruity notes made for a very interesting mouthfeel. I was surprised and pleased at the same time.
Overall - I am torn between a 3.75 and a 4.00, but the taste and the mouthfeel won out and it will be a 4.00. After all, isn't that what makes up 80% of beer drinking - Taste and mouthfeel?
Serving type: on-tap
