(Draught at Falling Rock during GABF after party) ruddy orange juice pour, fine white bubbles. Nose of lychee, orange juice, charred wood, barrel and quite funky! Taste of lychee, mouthwatering tartness, tangerine, funky, bone dry, champagne like yeast finish, and wet wood on the palate linger. Excellent.

Tap at Vintner. Interesting beer; this one did not really stand out as being much different from Le Terrior with the exception of the dry hops on the later. The spices are not really present, it just kinda tastes like La Folie. It is a good beer, sour and fruity tasting, but not really what I was expecting it to be.

chibuck (3509) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2011
On tap at fobab...Pours a murky gold with a decent white head...The aroma is tart fruits, very acidic, a little sweetness to balance, I like it...The taste is quit similar tart acidicness, vinous notes again. Not enough sweetness comes through for me, here not quite a as successful. Something about the sourness is not grooving with me, too acidic and sharp. A pretty good wild but that’s about it.

Sampled at Brewvival 2011. Pours a hazy mustard color with not much head at all. Not as acidic as the le terrior. Peach and apricots. Tartness. Good, not great.

Lubiere (12678) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2011
A hazed murky amber sour ale with no head. In aroma, beautiful epsom salts over lychee pulp, sour cherries, classic. In mouth, a beautiful sour ale with loads of cherries, lactic acid, smooth and quaffable. On tap at Brewvvival, Feb. 26 2011.

JK (5631) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2011
A decent beer. Sour and dry. Aroma has some yeast. Flavor has some fruit, but not much of it, and I don’t know lychee that well even when not in beer. Some malt sweetness and a sour finish. Where the Wild Beers Are, 2010.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Tap at NB. Pours a hazed dull peachy orange with a thin light head. Aroma is light tart lychee fruit, earth, slight dirt, slight white grape juice with apple, chestnuts, ligth acetic acid but kept in check. Flavor is peachy fruity juice like, lychee, earth, nuts, dirt, mineral, lacto- lemon hints, slight light astringency, lacto and brett funk, sour, light aceto and even some hints of funky cheesy isovaleric, and slight dms in spots. Pretty good though.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2010
On tap at fobab 2010. Pours a hazy gold orange with a small white head. Aroma sharp and tart with some funky sour fruitiness and a faint oaky sweet note in the background. Flavor starts crisp and tart, aggressive lactic sour notes the brett coming out. Some spice in the finish which remains tart and dry, more funk in the finish. Medium body and sharper carbonation. very good stuff.

Tap at Anchor Bar, Wichita
Pours a muddy apple-cider orange with an aroma of tart peach, lemon, and oak. Flavor is mouth-puckering tart oaked peach with a tangy, attic-musty lemon finish. Lively and slick on the tongue. Absolutely delicious.
