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.
