Lips of Faith is an innovative series of beers brewed by New Belgium Brewing Company. Tart Lychee is the latest release in this very popular series of unique brews. It is comprised of 50% wood-aged sour (Felix) blended with 50% of ale brewed with lychee juice and cinnamon. Felix is also the base beer for another Lips of Faith release, Le Terrior, a dry-hopped sour ale. Lychee is a fruit that has origins in Asia and New Belgium describes the flavor of it as ” so insanely sweet and flavorful you almost can’t stand it alone”. I leaned back in excitement after pouring the beer in my snifter, pausing for a moment to enjoy the sweet aroma. The sweetness of the fruit was apparent on the palate, while the alcohol was masked by the funk and sour taste of this blended beer. Overall, this was another great sour from New Belgium. In three words this beer is sweet, sour and superb. Share this beer with friends and family and you are bound for an enjoyable experience.
