Hammy78 (739) - 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 (10916) - 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.

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.
