New Lips of Faith

New Belgium Lips of Faith Dunkel Weiss....$7.29 / 22oz
“Deep amber brown with a dense off-white head, Dunkelweiss 30° rediscovers Hefeweiss beers through a Belgian brewer’s lens. Envisioned by our own Matty ‘Smooth’ Gilliland, this beer opens with sweet clove and banana notes that give way to a chocolaty warm finish with a peppery tingle across the palate. ‘I thought it would be fun to make a German wheat beer; we’ve explored the Belgian wheats pretty thoroughly,’ said Gilliland. ‘Since this is Lips of Faith – and part of what makes that program fun is to make beers that are really unique and different – making a big, strong, dark Weiss beer sounded pretty folly-licious. It’ll still showcase all of the flavors that a Hefeweiss beer would have, but add in the burly body and extra punch. Think of it as a Grand Cru Dunkelweiss."
Rated 95/100 on
