New Belgium/Lost Abbey "Lips of Faith - Brett Beer"
New Belgium Brewing Company/The Lost Abbey - Fort Collins, Colorado USA
Wild Ale (ABV 7.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a hazy medium golden yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white pillowy head that receded slowly for about a minute down to a large puddle with medium collar and excellent sticky sheets of lacing.

The aroma was of a light grain malt and a mild funky Brett yeast with notes of overripe pineapple, pears, citrus (lemon) and a touch of spice.

The taste was lightly sweet and acidic with notes of pineapple and citrus throughout with a nice dose of a tart yeast and a slight bitter spiciness towards the end. The flavor lasted only a short while with a tart yeasty spiciness left behind.

Mouthfeel was just above light in body and very mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a mildly tart yeasty brew that reminds me more of a Belgian Ale than a Wild Ale...
