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.

Damico (2350) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2012
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.

jstraw (1900) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Muddy pale orange with good, creamy, white head / Elegant nose of orchard fruit, oak, and brett / Light to medium body, tart and acidic, lively, hint of sweetness, with good balance and mildly bitter finish / Tart flavors of apple, pear, lychee (presumably), oak, hay, basil, and a touch of barnyard / Very nice.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity sour tart aroma. Fruity sour tart citrus flavor with hints of lychee and weak woody hints. Has a fruity sour tart lychee finish.

madvike (2578) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle shared by CaseyK...thanks Casey! - Pours clear golden with a bubbly white head. Nose is sour citrusy funk--pretty straightforward, and I can’t say I could pick out the lychee. Smooth taste, fairly subtle citrus rind and really pale malt. Real dry and note aggressive. Sharply carbonated with a fairly light body. Not too bad--real restrained.

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2012
75 cL bottle. Pours cloudy yellow with a huge crisp head. Aroma is classic barnyard and crisp citrusy and floral to fruity. Smooth fruity, light sweetness to a nice crisp citric and sourness. Ends lingering fruity and crisp sour.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2012
Bottled. A hazy dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits and some brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet and acidic with notes of lychee fruits, brettanomyces, and wood, leading to a tart finish. Not as crazy as I’d hoped.

Very odd beer, sour with an odd hoppy finish. Really odd flavor because the finish is hoppier than fruity.
