bierkoning (12383) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle. Blonde, hazy, no head. Lychee and citrus in the aroma and flavor. A moderate sourness. Bretty notes. No carbon whatsoever. Not flawless, but not unpleasant.

Very small, fast gone whitish head over unclear yellow beer with Grünstich. Very fine, lively pearling. End of bottle is a UFO attack. Wheat, unmistakably and even unmistakably a Brett aroma, citrus/rhubarblike and horseblanket included. Lychee? I don’t get any. Wood. Brett. Sweetened rhubarb, celery, unripe prunes. Lychee?? I’ve had IPA’s without an ounce of fruit that tasted 100x more of lychee than this. Thinnish, fully attenuated, well-carbonated, dry. Mild sourish aftertaste, but quite fast dead. Generally a bit thin, if nice, very drinkable. Fruity, if not the intended fruit. Many thanks to the boss!

Tap @ In De Wildeman (Sample size). Pale blonde color, hazy/cloudy. White head (not much). Aroma’s: sour, fruit. Not distinguishable from the glass which fruit, but retronasal you can make out the lychee, faintly. Also sourness, fruit, light sweetness retronasal. Flavor is moderate sour’n’ sweet, fruity. Light bodied. Finishes grainish. Pleasant and refreshing.

PeatyPete (931) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2014
Hazy orange-coloured beer with no head. Fruity aroma, lychee. Taste is fresh and a bit sour. In the beginning a bit watery. Slightly warmer is the taste fuller.
