look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Cloudy, dark amber in color, with a thin head of wheat-colored head that fades quickly, although decent lacing remains. There are quite a few chunks of gray sediment as well.

S: Very fruity, with pineapple dominating, peach in the background. Also some woody, earthy notes poke through.

T: Malt is minimally sweet, moving quickly on to tart fruit. I taste the pineapple juice I smelled, plus a hint of hard cider. Oaky Chardonnay comes through, then gives way to a bitter finish that is very one-dimensional; late in the finish, tart fruit pokes its head up once more.

M: Moist initially, with below-average carbonation. There's a faint booziness, then a semi-dry finish.

O: Decent, but not worth the money I paid. And not even close to the best "Lips of Faith" offering from New Belgium. Like McKayla, I'm "not impressed."

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Cloudy burnt orange, only a weak carbonation stream present at the center. Not much head lingers, but it has some applause-worthily sticky dotted lacing.

S: Tangerine at the forefront, peach and other fragrant fruits behind it. Background of yeast and earthy herbaciousness.

T: Awesome fruit combinations again, with that herbacious note, probably courtesy of the dandelion greens, coming in somewhere in the finish. Semi-dry. Very pleasant.

M: Superb fluidity, maybe a high sugar content giving it a light syrup feel, seemingly hidden carbonation. Somewhat mouth-drying, taking away from the refreshment.

O: Easy drinker despite the 9% ABV. Good balance between easy-to-enjoy fruit and appreciable herbs. Personally, I prefer the fruit to have more influence, but they went for the balanced, mature beer, which I have to credit them for. Also, kudos for integrating dandelion greens well- not sure if it'll be a trend, but the creativity is impressive!
