THE Fruit Sour tasting. Hazy amber beer, good white head. Light palate, a little dry. Mild carbonation. Bitterish milky backdrop with mildly bitter fruit, mostly lemon and not much lychee at all, if any! Dry crisp finish. Meh! Pretty disappointed by this one. Still waiting for a decent lychee beer.

yngwie (13845) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle, 75cl. It’s a clear one, more or less, topped by a creamy, off-white head of moderate size, leaving lacings. It’s quite sourish on the nose, with barnyard hints. Lemon, some cellar and peppery hints. It’s dry and lighlty effervescent on the palate, medium bodied, with flavors of pale malts in the back. Citrus peel, pepper, cellar and sourness in the flavor, quite tart. Lasting finish. Quite pleasant this one. 131116
