New Belgium Lips of Faith series -- Cascara Quad
The cherries and coffee are present, but barely there. More dark fruit and booze. Booze. Lots of booze. Don't get it twisted, I love some booze in my beer but the flavors and backbone need to compensate. Here, no such thing. It ends on a slightly bitter (tobacco) note that really removes much of anything it had going for it.
Buy if: meh.
Overall: a compelling concept undermined by it's own ambition. Kind of like Stanley Kubrick movies.
2.5 out of 5.
