The lips of faith series is the small batch and specialty crafted beer series made by the pioneer brewers in Fort Collins. Le Terroir is a dry hopped sour ale, aged in barrels for some unstated amount of time and allowed to develop under varying conditions. This creates a beer which changes each time its made. This edition has an amazing citrus hop bouquet on the nose filled with smells familiar to beers like Pliny the elder and hop 15. The taste is intense! If you are looking for something smooth and understated look somewhere else. This ale fills your palate with flavors to ponder. Lots of sour orange and soggy wood. Its as if there are two beers coming out of the bottle. The one I smell and the one I taste. Good news, I like them both. Drink this beer often.
