Bottle. Let this beer age for about 9 months. Lightly hazy gold with a short white head. Aroma cold is not that bold. Allowed to warm, it blossoms. Yeast is most prevalent followed by equal parts peach and dandelion. The dandelion is muted. A little wet hay as well and a very mild funkiness. Taste ups the yeast and candy sugar, light woody notes, pineapple. Body is medium with a strong early carbonation. Beer has little alcohol burn at this age despite its high ABV. Finish has kind of a melon quality. Not exactly dry, but ending on a sweet flourish. An excellent beer.

The First "Lips of Faith" beer I ever found purchased at a Sandwich shop just a mile away from Vintage Estate in Ohio for $8.99. Can't remember the name.
A - Decent carbonation just a 1/4 inch that settles to a thin lace ring. Beer is a dark orange amber color like old peach juice. Very hazy but no sediment chunks. This is very amazing since this beer is over 10 months old.
S - Smell is great love the stone fruit and peach notes. The grainy aspect is timid and there next to the fruity pale ale yeasts. I could see this being much more pronounced fresh.
T - Not as fruity or tart as I expected in a way the grains and fruit notes kind of meshed together to make for just a one sweet note I get with every sip. I don't really pick up any wood or Dandelion greens which I know are very bitter and somewhat medicinal. In a way it is quite excellent in this stage.
M - Very smooth I am not sure how this beer was fresh but at this stage the ABV is super hidden with mostly sweet fruit flavors and the occasional bitter sting in the finish. Medium bodied at most.
Overall it was totally worth picking up in a way despite it's age it still has a smooth fruit flavor combination and the base Belgium pale ale is well crafted. At least twice as good as the "Brainless on Raspberries" I had recently for the same price.
