New Belgium Lips of Faith Prickly Passion Saison

A: Pours a golden hue, clear, and a light 1/4 finger worth of head. A good amount of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass, light lacing as it recedes.

 

S: Nose is of green apples, Lemongrass, a very light acidic note, and in the end I'm getting some Belgian yeast (although I know it's French yeast).

 

T: Taste is a bit tart, albeit very minuscule. Tartness is smoothed over by earthy yeast and citrus notes. I'm not keen to the passion fruit/prickly pear in this saison, but I'm definitely picking out some citrus and pear notes.

 

M: Medium- bodied, light and refreshing, as well as perfectly carbonated. Great hot summer day drink, but at 8.5% ABV, it was well disguised.
