New Belgium and The Lost Abbey Lips Of Faith – Brett Beer

a – Pours a hazy, deep yellow orange color with one finger of fluffy white head.

s – Smells of oranges, A touch of brett, wheat, and bready malts. Brett and oranges are pretty weak. Nose isn’t bad at all, but kind of muted.

t – Tastes of bready malts, citrus, oranges, fruity malts, wheat, and very light funk, but not much. A little stronger and better than the nose, but still not much brett.

m – Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, the body is super smooth and creamy.

o – Overall a decent beer, but expected much better out of these breweries, and a bit underwhelming. For a name like “Brett Beer” it did not have a ton of brett, and the nose was very muted.

Serving type: bottle split in NB Tulips

New Belgium Lips of Faith Tart Lychee

A: Hazy straw color with orange hue. Small white head that fades quickly

S: Quite tart with some noticeable fruit character, Some good green apple and lemon notes, along with a mild barnyard funkeness. Not sure what a Lychee is or smell like so cant compare it to that.

T: Lots of great lactic tartness and fruit flavors. Definitely some green apples, and lemons. The oak is there, mainly in a tannic and mildly funky form. Decent amount of brett funk and dryness.

M: A puckering tartness along with a dry finish, medium body, and moderate carbonation.

D:Great beer, nice balance, and complexity with a touch of sourness. I would buy this again for sure.
