Easy drinking, Lychee based session beer from Broome. Light and refreshing, zesty and slightly tart.

Bottle to glass. More like a fizzy cordial than a beer. Powerful sweet nose, sticky light body, short, ever-so slightly refreshing finish. Not bad as lolly water, but not really rateable as a beer. Sorry.

From a bottle. They certainly got the lychee aroma and flavours into this, it’s like a fuzzy lychee juice. Looks like a white wine,

Bottle from Plonk (Mat 2014). Pale pinkish-golden with minimal white head, super sweet lychee aroma and flavour, not much else to report. Sickly sweet.

Poured a clear golden colour with a few millimetres of white froth for a head that retained poorly but laced OK. Carbonation medium and coarse. Aroma strongly of natural lychees. Taste of sweet lychee and musk - more like a soft drink than a beer. Light body. Crisp, light, refreshing (while cold) with a musk finish. OK to try.

Very light in the glass. Little froth. Got strong aroma of lychee and grain. Sweet on front of tongue. Not heavy but has a little late bitterness. Definitely a fruit beer that suits Broome. 1.2std drinks, 4.5%. 330ml ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. BB 03/04/2015. Pale straw colour. Frothy head which quickly disappeared. Minimal lacing. Aroma of lychees (funnily enough), perfume and musk sticks. Weird sweet and sour taste, not overpowering, but not very enjoyable either. Not for me.

I have absolutely NOTHING good to say about this. Must be the worst purchase I’ve ever made since I started driving.

Bought at Kununurra Hotel in luxurious Kununurra 330 ml bottle Golden straw color, one finger bright white head. Decent retention. Decent visible carbonation. Nose is lychee, syrup, grain and malt. Not overly complex nose at all. Taste is lychee syrup, grassy bitterness, grain, and some fruit pulp. Sweetness is obvious by this point. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Not bad, not great. Bottled versions are made at gage roads in Perth with syrup. Draft version does use real lychee.
