look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bought a couple of these a few weeks ago. I split one with MADhombrewer and took some mediocre notes. I'm drinking the other one now to compare to the two week old notes I took.

A: Poured into a New Belgium globe. It appears to be a pale honey colored clear body with a couple fingers of bone white head on top the recedes to a wispy cap. Tons of lacing. World class? Yep. 5/5

S: Here's the biggest difference from the extra two weeks in the bottle. The first time I had this I took notes saying mango, pineapple, and guava. Those aromas are no longer as pungent. The lactic qualities and sugar cookies were there before and still are but the dry-hopping is lending less distinct tropical fruits and is instead a little generic. It no longer is the fantastic bouquet it was, but its still a very appetizing albeit unique smell. My score given was for the fresher bottle. 4.5/5

T: Sour without being over-bearingly so. The other underlying flavors can come through nicely. Ripened cheese, white grapes, peaches, green strawberries, and good old-fashioned vanilla laden wood help complicate the flavors. Very good. 4/5

M: Very spritzy, thin side of moderate body, dry and crisp. Paired well with my chicken katsu tonight. 4/5

O: Great beer! An extremely unique drink fresh and still a solid sour when the tropical dry-hopping fades. Definitely worth the $7 a bomber I paid. 4.5/5

On tap at BC's Pizza and Beer

A: Pours golden amber with a creamy off white head that settles and lightly laces.

S: Fruity, peach and apricot, a little tropical fruit and citrus.

T: Nicely tart, fruity peach and apricot, a little mango, some lemon, and maybe a very light funk.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation, quite smooth.

O: I haven't had much of a chance to get into sours, but this one was quite enjoyable.

Pours a solid orange color with a huge white head after a sturdy pour into a Captain Lawrence tulip glass. Maybe it was too hard of a pour as it seems like there's no carbonation bubbles coming up, but no big deal. Lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is very interesting. Light funk, lots of herbal/grassy hops, some bandaid/medicinal action with a touch of light citrus and fruit. Can definitely tell this one has been dry-hopped. This is isn't super sour or tart, but there's plenty there, loads of citrus, lemon, orange, and just a bit of funky/leathery musty goodness on the finish. Firm hoppiness to it, earthy herbal bitterness, flowery, perfumey. Very interesting. Finding it hard to describe the flavors, but overall has some floral, sweet, and citric characters, and all blends together well. Carbonation is good despite the look, medium bodied. This is a very interesting beer and very delicious as well. I love what the dry-hopping has done for the balance to the sour and sweet components. Good stuff.

2013 22oz into a tulip. Pours a hazy honey straw color w/ a 1-finger white head that leaves behind some loose lace.

Aroma is complex and intriguing. Pears, green apples, fresh-cut hay, oranges, pineapple.

Taste is equally unique and complex, leading off with fresh citrus and a lemony zing. Pale, slightly grainy malt, dry oak, juicy hops, some pink grapefruit, peach and mango. Nice and tart without being vinegary or overly sour.

Mouthfeel is light, crisp, and bone dry. Reminds me a little bit of a Berliner weisse, perhaps crossed with a wheatwine. Really nice.

Overall just an outstanding, interesting wild ale, by far the best I've had from the Lips of Faith series.

On-tap at Sheffield's. Poured into NB tulip/snifter.

A - Pours a golden-yellow color with a fingers worth of white head. There's a good amount of retention, and a nice white cap of head remains after the initial pour.

S - Very tart/sour, moreso then I expected, which is very nice! Sour apples, cherries, and other sweet fruit notes. A good amount of funk!

T - Similar to the nose. Lip-puckering sour, some sweet fruit notes. A good amount of tart funk on the finish.

M - Light and crisp, nice a fizzy, champage-esk.

D - Really liked this one, glad I was lucky enough to be able to try it. Amongst the top-tier of American Wild Ales I've had.

A deep golden orange with a bright 1 finger head. Looks nice.

S hops and some mild funky sweetness

T nice strong funk bitterness right at the front then funky grape bitterness in the middle with a sweet finish. Would be nice if the aftertaste hung on a little longer. Really good tasting beer

M very good. Nice carbonation. Some of these sours are way over carbonated for me but this is pretty much just right.

O a very enjoyable beer. Not overly sour but there are some really nice flavors here.

2014 vintage poured into a snifter glass

A- pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small sudsy white head that reduces to leave some nice lacing behind

S- mouth watering sour aroma with notes of white wine, white grape skin, mango, cantaloupe, slightly funky yeast, earth & wet hay

T- lots of fruity tartness up front with an emphasis on tangerine marmalade, grapefruit zest, honeydew melon, lemon peel, white grape, vinous white wine tartness, light toasted oak on a dry linger

M- medium body with light carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a bone dry sour finish

O- very fruit forward sour that drinks pretty easy and hides the alcohol well

2013 version

A - Pours a golden orange with a two-finger foamy white head. The head dissapates leaving some soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is an interesting mix of grapefruit, orange peel, vinegar, and a light barnyard funkiness.

T - The flavor starts off tart with a vinegary flavor that is balanced out by some citrus. There is some yeasty barnyard funk throughout with a biscuity maltiness. The finish has a nice earthiness.

M - Light bodied with medium carbonation. Very crisp mouthfeel with a dry finish.

O - This is a nice sour. The dry hopping adds some nice citrus notes. A very fun beer that would be a good introduction for non sour fans.

On-tap at Stone yesterday.

Mildly hazy amber with orange highlights and a thin white head that recedes to a ring rather quickly. The nose is rich and conplex, sour with berries, strawberries, plums and a mildly peachy character. The characteristic New Belgium acetic character is present, and the combination of the sourness and the sweetness is excellent. I also get a bit of a citrus character
The palate opens plenty sour and acetic with a lot of red wine vinegar with the fruity raspberry/strawberry character quite strong. Deliciously rich, the combination of sweetness and acidity is quite excellent. Fairly complex. If this beer was dry hopped, it really doesn't show much on the palate. Medium in body with moderate carbonation and a drying, acetic finish, this beer is enjoyable. While the acetic character can be a bit high, the one glass I got was thoroughly enjoyed.

Edit 05 Oct 2013.
Finally getting to revisit this. Bottle from new seasons.

Fruitier and sweeter with a blend of citrus , peach and nectarines with a relatively clean lactic sourness , this is decent. Acetic character is low. Lemon rind sourness is also present, along with some bitterness. The palate is juicy, fruity and moderately sweet, with honey, nectarines , citrus and lemon juice. Decent. 3.5 3.5/3.5

Bomber. Pours straw golden with lacy white head. Aroma is green apple funk, light mint from the dry hopping, bright fruits also from the hops. Taste is sour kick balanced by nice hop presence. Pungent sour but not quite as much as la folie, still a big sip makes the blood rush to your face. By far the best of the lips of faith series and its not close. Wish they would make this again but heard from Kim that they wont.

Single pint bomber poured into a tulip. A sparkling dark orange with two fingers of sudsy, rocky white foam. Aroma is initially innocent enough, some orange and lemon rinds, but blooms into some pretty serious sour funk with a fruity flair, full of sour mangoes, green apples, peaches, white grapes, limes, vinegar, lemon juice. A massive sour gummy candy bouquet with just a hint of barnyard. On the palate the hops seem to accent rather than dominate. Tons of sour fruit: Muscat grapes, lemon-lime, those sour tangerines that are full of seeds, and green mango, super acidic and corrosive, again with little true funk in the old style. Fiercely carbonated as well, like a sparkling wine. Getting more hops on the nose late, quite floral. A subtle sweetness like a pina colada lurks underneath. Body on the light side but not watery or thin per se. I'm still branching out into sour beer territory but this burgeoning fan deems this an "instant classic", at least if one is trying to capture the sour fruit stylings of Rodenbach or tannic white wines. Wonderful.

Mf: light-medium body with an almost prickly carbonation that dances on the tongue.. has a nice puckery/dry finish..

Bottle poured into a tulip. Beer poured a clear orange with a finger and a half of creamy white head. Decently uniform head, with a few bubbles here and there, that leaves a very nice amount of sticky lacing on the edge of the glass as the head dissipated to a small collar of bubbles. Some tiny bubbles float up here and there, but not overly active.

Nose is earthy, woodsy, wet hay funk, sweet orange, nectarine and peach, sour fruit vinegar, acetic acid, with a decent caramel and biscuit malt backbone.

A bit of the hops comes through on the taste, the sweet and lightly bitter citrus, tropical fruits like mango and pineapple, sweet stone fruit peaches and nectarines, wet hay funk, light vinegar mid tongue with mild acidity, and finish is a soft earthiness, light oak, and sweet fruit. Lightly dry finish, with some residual fruitiness lingering.

Light bodied with a really gentle and soft carbonation that is nearly perfect from a wild ale. A relatively high abv is well hidden, maybe contributing slightly to an over ripe fruit taste at the back of the throat. Would have liked just a little more acidity, but there are so many excellent flavors going on here that this is still worth trying at least once.

Much like Eric's Ale before it, La Terroir has been a local NB favorite for years that just never made it into bottles. I don't believe it (still) is, but at one time NB employees described it as being a dry hopped La Folie. At that time both were pretty rare, so I never had much of a reference to compare the two.
Pours a golden yellow color with a voluminous head on a normal draft pour. Lacing is pretty abundant as you work your way in. It's definitely not the same color as La Folie, FYI.
The profile on this beer is interesting because it shifts. Up front I get a sweetness that suddenly becomes very sour and citric when it hits the middle of the tongue. Right when you think you know what you're getting, the earthy, almost "salty" hops kick in to form a great counter balance to the sourness. Swallowing revives the sour notes a bit, although the hops keep it from being a one-note finish, too.
The 3-stage flavor profile makes you come back for more and more, and it never gets any less interesting and the palate never dulls. I think this one could satisfy fans of lots of different styles, without compromising one bit.
NB's best beer? It might be. If not, it's at least on par with Eric's and La Folie.

Have had the pleasure of enjoying this beer many times in many settings, finally time for a review. Pours a somewhat cloudy orange with a blanket of white head that retains nicely and leaves heavy lacing. The nose starts with fresh hops, the simcoe and amarillo bring some pine, grass, and tropical fruit to the table. This is followed by some toasty malt aroma paired with a nice dose of lactobacillus. The taste is way more tart than the nose lets you believe. Notes of tart cherries, lemon, balsamic vinegar, and tropical fruits are all present on the palate. The sourness is refreshing and plenty puckering, the hops kind of tame down the intensity. Mouthfeel is well carbonated and light. Overall, this is a very unique sour that features the best of both the hoppy and the wild ale world.

A - semi transparent golden orange, very bright. White finger head that goes away quickly, but bubbles pop up everywhere any time you move it around the glass.

S - tart lemon and green apple, slightly sweet cherry and raspberry. Light vinegar with a very tiny grassy funk to this.

T - Very nice lactic sour, lemon, green apple, sweet berries. The sour is very satisfying, but the sweetness doesn't let it get overwhelming; I'm halfway through a bottle and I don't se my palate completely faded like many other sours might. There is a very light grassy and earthy quality about this in the finish, right before it gets very mouth drying.

M - satisfying body, carbonation pops, it's prickly. Well done.

O - I'm really impressed with this. Nice sour and fruit flavors, some nuance.

A bottle split with onix1agr in honor of black dog.

A- a stead pour yields a good two finger of bright white head that holds for a bit then settles to a thin skin and a solid ring. slightly hazy sunset orange in color with a sweet golden yellow glow at the edges when held to the light.

S- funky sour and amarillo hops hitting you at the same time. Vegetative and mildly earthy with some lemon peel and sour orange. Light spice quality. Very interesting nose.

T- grassy herbal hops and a bracingly sour one two punch. Lemon juice and a touch of grapefruit rind. Light dry scone malts and a touch of floral honey sweetness.

M- medium body and light carb. Great juicy pucker and a nice tannic dry finish.

O- this is a great american wild ale and the bold dry hopping is killer. I really wish new belgium would come to philly where the beer flows like water.

The beer pours a fairly vigorous and creamy white head that dissipates moderately. The beer itself is a clear solid gold. The beer smell is pretty complex and delicious. The beer has both a tarty component and a fruity/tropical part. The tart sour (similar to that of grapefruit and Granny Smiths) is pretty strong and dominates the smell but is delightful when the tropical part comes out. The tropical smell is a little bit like watermelon and melon with a bit of sweet papaya. The beer taste is similar but the tart is stronger and the tropical part is harder to make out. The tropical part still comes out and is pretty good but it's hard to keep the beer in your mouth for that long. The tropical portion is generally stronger after the beer has warmed a little and stronger in the aftertaste. The same melon notes from before are present. The tart comes out with the same notes but is amplified by the bitter citrus hops.

***2013 Release***

Thanks to Kump for this.

Poured from a bomber.

Pours a nice gold body with a chill haze and spotted lacing. Aroma is fresh hops, very floral and citrusy, almost certainly Citra. I take a gulp and my senses are thrown for a loop! Vinous, white-wine like, sour and ends with citrusy hops. My taste buds were going crazy and i loved it. Meshed hoppy and sour perfectly, a win for me.

Appearance- Pours up a fair amount of head that has a little bit of retention. The head is a pure cotton white while the body is a slightly hazy and medium amber that appears paler when held up to the light. Some lacing is left behind.

Nose- Very interesting and quite subtle for a wild ale. The hops are definitely still fresh- light notes of orange and lemon with pine and resin in the background. Some grapefruit. Mellow aromas of peach and other stone fruits. Mild notes of straw and grass and minor funk come out of the bottle but not the glass.

Taste- This starts off with mild tartness, mostly lemons and cherries, and this builds with notes of stone fruits, grass, straw, and slight funk. Slight notes of the Amarillo and Cascade- grapefruit being their strongest contribution. Conspicuous lactic acid but really manageable. Does really have a linger because of the clean and dry finish. Loads of peaches. However, this beer doesn't have a large presence but this is no way detrimental to it. This beer is delicate and sublime. The balance is perfect and while this may not be the best sour I've ever had, it's one of the most enjoyable. I will certainly be buying another bottle to age. A step below Cantillon- I simply haven't found any American beers (Russian River excepted) which replicate the mouthfeel of those great Belgian beers. Apples, cherries, and strawberry. All very subtle except for the cherry, lemon, and peach. Some apricot. Some notes of honey and melon as well.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with some syrup which is quite delicate. Good amount of carbonation. Has a little bit of zing where a bit of airiness would definitely make this a world class beer.

Drinkability- Pretty much the most easygoing sour that I've ever had while maintaining my interest. Pretty much a steal at 8 bucks a bomber when you consider both Cascade's and Russian River's prices.

Overall- Great beer, delicate take on the style. The addition of the hops really mellows it out and reinforces the sublime nature of the beer. Definitely worth a try. I will be grabbing one or two bottles to age- this is too great of a deal to pass up.

Pours a dusty orange gold hue with a white 2 finger head. Slightly hazy and very effervescent.

Rather incredible aroma slowly fills the room with the pour, floral, primarily of sour cherries but with a pineapple and guava backing. The smell makes me brace a little for the tartness to follow in the drink but I could bask in this one all day.

Malts are a little more heavy and sweet than I expected, no hop character but a fruitiness that permeates throughout the drink. Pineapples, citrus and very tart cherries on the finish. Sour flashes followed by dryness. Would have preferred that the malts be less heavy as it brings down the sour shock factor a little.

Residue is a bit sticky but over all good body. Actively carbonated and pleasantly drying.

Unique sour something unexpected but enjoyable to the last drop. I've tasted this one on tap at the brewery before and it's markedly more bright and carbonated on tap. Some of the hoppy dynamics have started to fade with age. Still a great offering.

Golden peach pour with a half inch of bubbly white head on top of the brew. Nice clarity...first sniff is tart and oaky with a mix of fruit notes jumping out. Peach/mango/citrus with some Amarillo hops still kicking in there, but they seem to have faded compared to when I have had this on draft in the past.

First sip is a mouth puckering fruit salad. Tons of citrus, peach and tropical flavors mingle with oak and some semi-sweet malts. Amarillo hops are still kicking but not as bright as I recall. Flows down with an acidic sour bite that lingers on. Well played.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with good steady carbonation. This one packs quite the sour punch but it is still quite drinkable. I think I would've liked it a bit more fresh...don't hang onto this one, drink it now if you have any left as the hops always have made this for me. A great brew overall.

Had on tap at Brouwers during Big Wood. Review from notes.

A: The beer is a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head on top, minimal retention and lacing.

S: Really liked the aroma on this beer, nice sour/tartness with some tropical fruits and lots of pine on the finish. There is some lemon and a little bit of funk.

T: Quite sour! Surprisingly hoppy, lots more tropical fruit, lemon, grass, and a bit of pickle juice actually.

M: Medium bodied with light carbonation. Great level of sour/tartness.

O: Really liked this beer, very different. Basically a sour IIPA, loved how the tropical fruit and pine mixed with the sour/vinegary notes.

Misty, toasted golden bodied with a skim of off-white suds. Retention is modest, lacing a bit better.
The first few whiffs bring a toasted grain and mango-citric hopping. An earthiness quickly seeps in, adding woody notes. Then the sour tones arrive in full, with vinegar, pineapple juice, apple cider, Chardonnay, and tart mixed berries. Further on, it seems to shape-shift between its hoppy and sour persona each time the nose nears the glass. It's a varied and interesting nose, but it could be more explosive.
Sour grabs hold of the cheeks right away. Tart cherries, raspberries, and pineapple. Toasty malt act as a canvas, and collects the barrel notes as it goes along. The sourness dives into balsamic vinegar and iron-rich blood, then brightens towards under-ripe mangoes and papaya, as the hops enter the fray. They also bring pine and lemon peel, before being reabsorbed by the prevailing tartness.
Medium-full bodied, given spark by the tiny, persistent buzz of CO2. This, along with the kaleidoscopic array of flavors keeps it hugely drinkable and involving.
The Lips of Faith series is wildly inconsistant, but offerings like this keep me eagerly awaiting the next one.

On tap at Sheffield's for their pre-FoBAB party. Served in a New Belgium globe tulip glass.

This beer is a glowing, hazy honey colored liquid with a finger of fizzy white head that fades into a thin collar in no time.

The nose is tart, juicy, funky tea. Faded floral hops, green apples, grape skin, it smells like a tea shop with a little lacto acidity.

The first sip is very fruity and floral. Sour apple notes, mild twang, some tart wheat, hops, juicy tea leaves, a little lemon and musty wood as well. It's refreshing and finishes a little dry.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

An excellent sour beer, but one glass was all I needed last night. I can't wait to drink more of this tonight though!
