On sent bien la présence du litchi dans cette bière, très agréable et très rafraîchissante

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 12, 2013
from Morteau, France - hazy blond-orange beer under a solid white foam; nice lacework; aroma of almonds, old apples and tangerines; sweet and medium-bodied; light residual sweetness and more fruity and gently spicy tones in the finish - not much character yet ok

erickok (3533) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 5, 2013
Nice looking label and story on the back. Unfortunately the beer was very disappointing. I’m not sure if it was bad, but I didn’t get much hop presence. Instead, a rancid butter (reason to belief it is a brewing mistake) aroma dominates. Some lychee perhaps, yes, but very mild malts. The carbonation is soft and pleasant, but the taste has too much butter as well. I will pick this up some other time to re-rate. (33cl bottle from Chop’in)

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2013
Pours amber with a large white head. Nose shows doughy Belgian yeast, spicy phenols and orange peel. Pretty similar flavours, more orange peel, spicy phenols, light malt and cinnamon. A little heavy on the spices but still nice. Good moderately high carbonation.

MiP (13598) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle, 6.5%. Refreshing aroma, good citric hoppiness, and refreshing yeast. Hazy golden colour. Big semi-stable white head. The flavour starts off yeasty, but it also has a refreshing and citric hoppiness, like the aroma. Slightly sweet, clean enough. Good.

bhensonb (11069) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
750 c&c from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours dark gold with a creamy white head. Lots of fruity hop in the aroma. Med body or better. Flavor is something peppery, fruit, yeast/fruitesters, something tropical, gets a little floral perfumey. Moderate malt. Really quite flavorful.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 19, 2013
Bottled 330ml from Arkadia. Clear golden color, good cloudy white head, some lace. Metal, some herbal hoppyness and fruity notes. Medium-bodied. Sweetish fruity flavor. Apricot, apple. Spicey, like ginger bitterness. Quite French.

KeefOz (917) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 15, 2013
Poured a clear deep golden colour with a three- to four finger white foamy head that retained Ok and laced with spots of clingy suds. Carbonation low with small bubbles. Aroma of sweet malt, musty yeast and spice/cloves. Taste of malt with moderately strong phenolic character coming out as cloves which over-rides any bitterness that may be around. Light to medium body. Clove driven finish reminds me of a wheat beer. OK.

worldbeertaste (1637) - AUSTRIA - NOV 9, 2013
Amber with a fizzy white, disappearing, lacy white head. Smells of forced carbonation, malt, caramel, pine, citrus grapefruit, club soda and flowers. Medium oily body with medium carbonation. Tastes of caramel and toasted malt with a dry grass pine citrus lemon. Sort of feels like its off or has a strange forced carbonation chemical aspect.
