New Belgium Lips of Faith Prickly Passion Saison

CIMG4671

This saison features Pale and C-80 malts with Target and Liberty hops. Oh yeah, it also has passion fruit and prickly pear juices in it. It sounds delicious, let’s see if it is.

Stats:
Saison. 8.5% ABV. Colorado. Limited Release.

Golden orange color. Very little head on this one.

You get some of that yeast and a little bit of fruit. It doesn’t really seem like juices were added. It’s got a bit of a spice component as well, with a little honey drizzled on top.

Mouthfeel is decent. It’s highly carbonated, but it does have a decent body. The carbonation makes it feel light.

It’s actually fairly sweet. It’s got a heavy honey and yeast component with a little bit of tropical fruit and a black pepper spice.

It’s not terrible, but it just doesn’t excite me very much. The added fruit juices don’t come through much. 84 points.
