Beer Review: NEW BELGIUM LIPS OF FAITH PEACH PORCH LOUNGER

Beer Review: NEW BELGIUM LIPS OF FAITH PEACH PORCH LOUNGER

The New Belgium Lips of Faith Peach Porch Lounger, a collaborative creation between musician G. Love and New Belgium Brewing, presents itself as a lovechild Saison. Despite the hype surrounding its description, the beer falls short of the complexity promised by New Belgium.

Tasting Experience

Appearance: The beer pours a clear amber orange with only a thin micro film to boast, lacking the visual allure one might expect.

Aroma: The perfumy Belgian yeast, fresh steeped grain, and floral notes contribute to the olfactory experience, setting a promising stage.

Taste: While the New Belgian yeast and canned peach flavors emerge, the anticipated complexity remains elusive. The low hop spice and well-integrated alcohol make it a drinkable Belgian Ale but fail to deliver on the intricacies hinted at.

Mouthfeel: The beer’s mouthfeel is described as juicy and full-bodied, offering a satisfying tactile experience.

Critique

The overall impression is one of slight disappointment. The Peach Porch Lounger does not live up to the complexity outlined by New Belgium. Despite being a very drinkable Belgian Ale, it lacks the tartness that would elevate it to the standard set by previous Lips of Faith releases, such as Eric’s Ale—an exceptional peach beer.

In conclusion, while the Peach Porch Lounger may stand on its own as a palatable Belgian Ale, it falls short of the expectations set by its own description and the Lips of Faith legacy.
