4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy cloudy peachy yellow color with a finger of gaseous bubbles. The nose is full of tropical fruit punch notes and tart rhubarb. The palate follows with a round full mouthfeel thats juicy sweet tropical fruit just like the nose and that additional lychee tartness that to me having only had a caned lychee a few times read almost rhubarb like. Chuggable not overly complex but a pleasure to drink.

Bottle. Fun brew, great with Thai food. Lightly sour with prominent lychee, the cinnamon coves through eventually. A bit thin with very light carbonation. Pretty tasty, would drink again.

Draft pour at Saucer. Nice sour nose. Well balanced sour taste. Too sour for those who don’t like it but just right for sour heads. Great beer!

The Lost Notebook Files Beer #18. At $8.99 a bomber, this beer is a steal. Pours a cloudy amber. Scent is all strawberry. Maybe it is all lychee, but I don’t really know what that is. Taste is tart and sweet. Well carbonated. Bottle - Source Unknown

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (22 oz). Slightly cloudy pale orange with almost no head or lacing. Aroma is of oak, tropical fruits, cinnamon, wild yeast and some vinegar. Taste is moderately sweet with a snappy mouthfeel and moderate sourness. Sight spiciness on the otherwise clean finish. Bottle kept in the refrigerator almost a year, and still tastes fresh. Won’t let it go that long again though! A very nice straight-ahead sour with nothing wrong with it. I have been enjoying all the entries in this wonderful series.
