Hammy78 (725) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
Bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago. Pours a hazy golden/ copperish colour, with a pretty active white head that leaves walls of lacing that really just cling to the walls and layer of head. Nose is fruity, sweet/ sour and barnyard like. Surprisingly clean smelling though, fresh. Tastes sour, but more tart. There is a woodiness to the aftertaste. Definitely fruit initially, Iím going to say Lychee, but itís been some time since Iíve had one. I havenít had a sour in some time, and Iím not well versed in them, but after this, Iím going to have more.

brokensail (10635) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 20, 2012
Pours a clear golden color with a tall white head. Some fruitiness on the nose, though nothing that overtly states lychee. Slight sweetness, some orange and grapefruit, and a bit of lemon. As it warms, a touch of lychee. Light straw and oak to the nose as well. The flavor is a blend of tartness and sweetness. Some mild funk notes of straw, grass, and must. Some lychee, grapefruit, and lemon peel tartness. Good, but not amazing.

pineypower (2478) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a moderate copper color with a small off white head. Aroma is of light funk, sweet fruit and lots of floral notes. Taste is of some mild tart notes, flowers, light sweet fruits. Was looking for a lot more tartness, and I honestly have no idea what a lychee tastes like so Iím assuming some of the things I tasted was that.

dmac (3901) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 11, 2012
750 ml bottle via trade. Poured a hazy orangey amber with a smaller foamy dense white head. Aroma of sur fruit, lemons, barnyard, and some acidic funk. Thinner bodied with softer carbonation, a slight touch of sourness halfway through, finishes softer and dry. Flavor of wet wood, dry saw dust, fruit skins, touch of acidity. Meh itís okay but with a name like Sour Bitch I was expecting far more sour.

mcberko (5999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
750mL bottle, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma of oak barrels, tart lychee, sour apples. Flavour of tart fruits, with the lychee most noticeable, the oak barrels with a lot of prominence, and sour apples in the background. Quite leathery and gueuze-like. Excellent lambic bordering a fruit and a gueuze.

Bottle on the RBSG 2012 bus. Pours a murky brownish gold. Aroma of summer stone fruit with old mealy apricots. Flavor is similar, turning malty partway through each sip. Sickly sweet with a mild tartness and some acidity.
