On tap at Oyster House. NB really knows what they are doing when it comes to sours. Nice pink hued pour, light bodied. Bit of funk and lots of tart. Definite tropical and green apple notes. Not sure I know what lychee tastes like, but there is a je-ne-sais-croix element in there. Not overly boozy. Felix always seems to be a good start.......

This beer is wonderful. You get the tartness you expect from the name and style, but it's not like every other sour in that it has a malty finish. It tastes like a sour until it doesn't, and it's very good for it.

Exquisitely tart & sweet simultaneously! Murky gold pour w/ a thin white head & some lacing. The aroma is robust w/ both sour & sweet notes while the taste follows the scent to a T. Fairly light & body & dangerously drinkable at close to 8%. Deliciously excellent!

what a way to end the night with this baby Poured cloudy orange with no head. A few swirls of the glass created a small, white head. Nose of brett, barnyard funk. Tasted of sour apples, salty, vinegar with a cracker malt feel. Lightly spiced and oaky, flaky, wood dust funk.

PanMarek (184) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Tart on the nose with some citrus hops and sweet fruit. Pours cloudy golden with persistent white foam. Sour at the front with active carbonation gives way to the lychee fruit sweetness at the end. Finish ends up slightly sticky. Medium body. The sweet / sour balance works well and the sweet finish is not disappointing.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6542) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Sampled on draft at Hou Thou this beer poured a cloudy orange-peach color with a small foamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart and sour with chalk, vinegar and lychee. The flavor was tart and sour with yeast, a bit of chalk, perfume and lychee. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Cloudy yellow with tall fizzy head. Sour fruit aroma. Taste - lemony tartness and sour apple along with some wheaty malt. Quite tart with just a bit of berry sweetness to cut it. Decent sour fruit ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
