3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle from Secret Santa. Thanks. Pours a hazy dark gold color with a small white head that soon recedes to a film. The aroma is tart with mixed white fruits, vanilla and some funk. The taste is more tart fruits, green apples, sour grapes, vanilla and oak. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is medium. I thought the finish fell a bit short and was less than smooth. Overall: A decent sour, I’m grateful for the chance to try it.

Taste is slightly sour, funky, sorrel, citrus peel, grass, lychee, lemon, wood, wet leafs, hay, brett. Slightly dry finish, medium bitterness. Far from the best I’ve had, but still a very good one.

23rd November 2012
THE Fruit Sour tasting. Hazy amber beer, good white head. Light palate, a little dry. Mild carbonation. Bitterish milky backdrop with mildly bitter fruit, mostly lemon and not much lychee at all, if any! Dry crisp finish. Meh! Pretty disappointed by this one. Still waiting for a decent lychee beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a lightly hazed golden hued body with a medium sized and retentive white head. Aromas are funky and musty with medium phenols. Attic, earthy, lychee, medium honey, floral, tart, yogurt. Flavors are of cobwebs, musty funk, earthy, nutty, medium acid, damp leaves. Lively carbonation, medium duration, lighter body. Rough brett funk in the finish. A bit unrefined.

Bottle at The Fruit Sour Tasting, London - thanks to Ken for this one. Pours cloudy gold with a moderate, white foam head. Fresh aroma, some sweat, light fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with strong tartness, more fruits (lychee, I guess). Medium bodied with average carbonation. Robust tartness at the end, tangy fruits, funk, poo. Very decent.
