Color- cloudy golden peach. Medium head.

Aroma- fruity with notes of sweet green grapes and hints of earthy dryness like clay dust.

Taste- A complex brew. Starts on the sweet side reminding us somewhat of sweet blond Belgian ales, then gently introduces a hint of sour (probably the dandelion greens), with a faint wisp of vanilla in the lingering finish.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted 6/30/2013.

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."
