Thanks emacgee for sharing. Cloudy golden with a bit of white lace. Nose is quite sugary upfront, with some light fruity tartness, salt water, starfruit, lychee. Flavor is similar, just way too sweet to be lambic of any caliber.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle purchased at Wlv and shared in Dunedin../ pours a semi-hazy medium orange brown pour and topped with a thin to medium creamy white head. Pretty consistent throughout... Aroma of semi-tart tropical fruit with not too much of a distinguishing lychee presence. Almost a light peachy apricot aspect to it. Solid sour feel to it... Strong tropical fruit character with a good degree of lactic sourness. An earthy bitterness to cut through mid to late and lasting through the finish. Shy of medium bodied with a semi-lively mouthfeel. Nice sour without at discernable pure fruit presence.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 with a name like Sour Bitch, this should be great! .. pours a frothy gold orange .. medium head, lacing is alright .. . touches of strange wood, pear, and some yeast.. not really at all sour .. . this falls flat and even at 2.5, i’m being generous .. . not enjoyable in the slightest... . edit, my slight attempt at humor has been removed.

Thanks to Huhzubendah for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
Pours a clear light peach color with a good white head and some nice lacing. The nose has a bit of cheese and some lychee. Flavor is relatively similar. Light sourness. Light body with spritzy carbonation. Pretty good but not fantastic.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours golden with an orange hue and decent bubbly white head. The aroma is the only disappointing part since there is not much there. The flavor of tropical tartness from the lychees blends with some light sweet citrus on top of a clean and lightly crisp body. Delicious overall.
