The beer is transparent and light orange hued with a thick white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is white wine, tart fruit, oak. The flavor brings a puckering sensation with what must be the lychee fruit. Tart and sour, but balanced by a delicate fruit sweetness and a hint of alcohol. Overall, interesting, intriguing, and enjoyable. That said, this is not in the upper echelon of lambics. Recommended. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-18-2011

Scopey (6713) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle thanks to Ken at THE fruit sour tasting. It pours deep hazy orange with a small white head. The nose is weakly sour, lemon, grapefruit, sour lychee, peach, tangerine and wood. The taste is tart peach, apricot, prickly sherbet, orange, lychee, tart lemon, some acidity, dust, earth and wood with a dry tart finish. Medium body and effervescent carbonation. A decent fruity sour ale, but I am left slightly underwhelmed.

MAFountain (18) - Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Serving Type: 750ml bottle to a Perennial snifter. Appearance: A hazy, amber, orange color. It has a thin, fizzy head to it, that quickly dissipates. Very noticeable lacing. Aroma: Sour, grainy, earthy. Taste: A light sour taste, with a long finish though. The sour on the finish really stays with you. There is a light to mild sweetness with this. Palate: Very crisp, with a fizzy carbonation. Thin in general, with an abrupt finish. An interesting contrast between the taste, and the mouthfeel. Overall: For what this cost, I would be hesitant to purchase it again. Is it a decent beer, yes. Are there better beers in this style for that cost, yes. Overall though, I am glad to of shared this one. It is an interesting take on a lambic.

Pours a rosey gold with no head. Aroma of Brett and funk, tropical fruits. Taste follows, dry, fruity and funky. Really nice sour, lots of Brett. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Det här var kanske en lite roligare och intressantare öl än den var god, men den var god ändå. Smaken är förbannat syrlig men den är samtidigt välbalanserad. Slutsats: den gör skäl för sitt namn.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 19, 2012
750 ml C&C bottle served in a Deschutes tulip. Shared in line at DLD. A: Pours a clear golden amber color with a frothy and bubbly pure white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thick ring and leaves some splotchy lace on the glass. S: Some sweet fruits, light tart green apple and some grassy flavors. T: Very light in the taste. It’s like there’s nothing here. I have to struggle to find anything besides some sweet lychee fruit and some grassy/wheat flavors on the finish. M: Clean and light bodied. It is refreshing and not drying at all. O: There’s nothing sour about this beer, it drinks like a grassy wheat beer with smidge of fruit added. Not worth half of the $28 price tag. It doesn’t taste bad by any means, but please give me a sour lambic or at least something with some puckering tartness if you’re going to call your beer "Sour Bitch."
