Bottle to flute Aroma of crab apples, lemons, you know, sour stuff. Appearance...beautiful. It seems as though, I'm too drunk to rate this appropriately. But I'll persist...sharing a 750 mL bottle in 12m after having a 1000IBU Mikkeller is a challenge...and I won. The taste is sour, with a touch of Brettt..an that packs a punch and clears the back of the tongue hoppiness.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold to amber pour with a medium off-white head. Sour, citrusy aroma with some peppery yeast notes. Malty flavor with sour peach and citrus before a peppery and sour finish.

Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, musty basement, cork, and light sour lemon. It pours a hazy amber with a small white head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus. It finishes with sour lemon, light must, citrus, and a touch of oak. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation.

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.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 10.05.2013, 0,75l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy head. Aroma is slightly rich, funky fruity, lychee, sour apples, wheat, wood, white wine, grapefruit, citrus peel, grass, vanilla, some light malts and brett. 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.

Poured from a 750ml bottle. Dusty lychee fruit, sour apple, malty, bright acidity. Tasty. I found this to be very easy drinking.

A - Cloudy golden-orange with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Funk, tartness, wheat, lychee, oak, vanilla, souness, oak, lemon zest, funky yeasts. T - Wheat, tart green fruits and lemon zest, lychee, oak, vanilla, sourness, funky yeasts, acidity. M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Smooth with a funky, tart, and slightly sweet finish. D - Nice fruit lambic. Good funkiness and sourness and the lychee add some nice kick to it.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is lychee and oak. Thin mouthfeel with a light sour fruit and tart finish. Easy to drink, a good fruit beer from Mikkeller.
