Pours cloudy with a hazel color. Take a whif and you can tell its a sour beer. Taste it and it immediately earns its name. Tartness smacks you right in the face off the get go. Eventually the oakyness and cinnamon make themselves known, but not to any extensive degree. The tartness is the dominant taste of the beer. Sour beer indeed. Easy drink. Ideal for summer. Good drinks. :)

RB1 (118) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2012
22oz. bottle purchased at GCM, Gilbert, AZ. Pours a butterscotch/orange color. Smallish white head that never completely dissipates. Aroma is oak, sweet fruit (lychee), with just a hint of cinnamon, which becomes more pronounced as the ale warms. Taste is crisp, refreshing, and only mildly tart and somewhat bitter up front, giving way to a dominating sweet taste, with cinnamon notes. Finish is sweet and mildly sour. I personally expected this ale be more tart and sour, but none the less, itís really nice. An easy to drink, warm weather refresher.

Beer is nice and cloudy and there is yeast in the bottle. Iím holding out hope that New Belgium wised up and stopped pasteurizing and filtering their sours ^_^ Wonderful Funky Fruity Smell. Cloudy Golden Color. Taste is a bit of a let down, at least for now. Very sweet, not much tart (contrary to the name). Itís got everything else there, just needs some more lactic acid. Iím really hoping this isnít pasteurized and will develop more in the next 1-2 years. Could be really great.

Bottle from Total Wine. Pours hazy golden with a short white head. Aroma is vinegar, fruit and cinnamon. Taste is tart with some nice fruitiness and a bit of spice. Pretty good stuff!

Alphadelic (2171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2012
A very cloudy and bright orange with a tight white lace. Slick vanilla and a mouthwatering tart Brett character are most prominent on the nose in the mouth there is a kick of light sourness that falls back to a sugary sweetness and in the finish, plenty of vanilla and some unique lychee fruitiness. I think Iíll pick up another and put a little time on it. This shows great promise for sure.

DalzAle (2026) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2012
Bottle. Dark hazy apricot pour, a little spotty head and a tart aroma of the lychee fruit and a little wood. Flavor is lightly creamy lemon, lychee, just a hint of spice and finished dry and woody and very balanced and pleasant. Solid, really glad I picked this up.

zeke626 (460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle, pours a cloudy, yellow-orange body with a thick, off-white head. Aroma of funk, yeasts, tart fruit/apple, and citric acid. Taste is the same, albiet with a stronger lychee presence. Smooth mouthfeel, but hard to pick out the wood and cinnamon spice notes. Tart finish with a lingering cinnamon spice burn. Still, I found this to be rather enjoyable and refreshing - good for relaxing on a hot day.

daknole (10883) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2012
Cloudy gold/yellow pour, big white head. Tart fruity aroma, maybe a hint of lychee(not much)and some yeasty, spice notes. Flavor is tart, not very sour. I get very little lychee flavor and ZERO cinnamon. I was really expecting more out of this.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 28, 2012
Cloudy brown mustard pour with a densely packed ivory foam. Light, slightly tart, and incredibly refreshing. Unripe mango, pineapple, and guava with a hint of spicy cinnamon stick and wood that is noticeable in aroma and flavor. Mild candied lemon peel. You get the sourness in your jaw on the back end. Bit of pucker but not at all overwhelming.
