Tmoney99 (12996) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy funky fruit and wood aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour fruit, vanilla wood flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet vanilla finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

BlazerT (400) - POLAND - APR 17, 2016
Bottle. Sensoric. Deep amber, medium hazy with medium, white, semi-densed head. Aroma again is funky, woody, basement, leather. Characteristic mild, sweet white wine barrel aromas broken by some apple and peachy sensations. Taste is semi-dry, little sour (acidic, probably because of lychee), nicely balanced by semi-sweet malty profile. Finish is acidic, brett and refreshing. In general very nice, refreshing, well balanced wild ale, definetely worth trying.

rouhlas (2115) - GREECE - MAR 17, 2016
375 ml bottle at Les Fleurs du Malt - le bar, Lyon. Clear orange amber color with off white head. Malty and yeasty aroma, herbal spicy, fruity, caramel, light wood and vinous. Sweet, light bitter and light acidic spicy taste. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
375ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Orange-amber in colour with a large long lasting off-white head, excellent lacing. The aroma is bretty, yeasty, white grapes, citrusy. The flavour is yeasty and citrusy, bretty and funk, some light sweet fruits. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long citrusy, musty. Still really goods but prefer the regular white wine barrel. Still a 4+ beer though.

CapFlu (5047) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2015
Lasting yellowish white head atop a cloudy, sediment-filled brown body. Nose of a dubbel with some metallic undertones. Good yeasty flavour, lemon, tin and some solid malt in the background. Very interesting. I like it.

drjoeng (619) - SINGAPORE - SEP 15, 2015
8%ABV. Wild Ale. Tapped out a brown amber color, dusky and cloudy at about 20ºSRM. Nose is full deep alcoholic flavors. Sweet, darkly roasted malts. There are residual hints of stewed sweet fruits, definitely honeyed dates. Pronounced carbonation nicely balances alcholic palate that carries all the brooding dark toasted, sweet malty flavors with a light alcoholic palate and a dry ume finish.

SeniorZozo (841) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 15, 2015
At Delirium Hoppy Loft Bar. Lychee aroma leaps out, backed with grainy malt, white wine aroma leading to a bubbly dry finish. Really like the dryness and the balance. this is a really well crafted beer. The lychee flavour is unusual and adds something different to a Sour Ale.

SG111 (981) - New York, USA - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle at Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours light golden color with a white head and nice lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast and spices, nice malt character, and distinct sour notes (maybe from the Lychee?). Sweet and sour. Flavor is similar. Really interesting but tough to describe. I really enjoyed it.

neongolden (1100) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 15, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 14 2015) Pours hazy deep orange with a moderate off white head and lace. Aroma sweet and funky with brown sugar, stewed fruit, overripe lychee, a little woody, a wet, earthy, barnyard funk. Palate sweet and a bit tart. Caramel and brown sugar, stewed pear and apple, lychee juice, even a little orange juice. Funk builds nicely in the middle, oak and some white wine and grape notes too. Finish is dry and softly bitter, woody, citrus peel, lingering lychee, a bit astringent. Medium full body with effervescent carb. Great beer, really pleasantly surprised me! Not sour, just funky and sweet/dry balanced. Fruit is nice, lychee present but not overpowering. Love it.
