Bottle @ Bruce’s. Light amber pour with a small head. The nose is grapefruit, some lemon drizzle cake. Very sweet tangy fruits. The taste is light brett. Dusty attic. Sweet mango and pear. Brown sugar. Light body, fine carbonation. Overall, tasty.

nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Draft at Alchemy. Unfiltered golden-orange. Thin, quick fading head. Big apricotish, what one would assume is lychee, flavor. Tart and biting, with a light mineral taste. Acidic citrus aftertaste. In the American Sour vain, not so overly test tube, clean malt backbone. with a nice unique tropical fruit tone. Triggers my memories of other NG Lips beers I really like, but this one just isn’t quite there. The oak is there, but hidden deep.

Damico (2491) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours cloudy golden with a big white head. Aroma brings fruity sour yeast and tart fruit so pleasant in the nose. Flavor starts dry but juicy with not so sweet fruity notes entering on a perfectly carbonated body.

brystmar (1191) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Definitely improved since its release last year. Tastes more true to the fruit now. Juicy; yeasty with relatively active carbonation. Cinnamon is MIA. Mildly tart, though it builds as the beer warms. Delicious and refreshing. Very approachable by non-beer folks: my sister would love this.

wlajwl (3764) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Aroma is tart fruit, some funk and very slightly perfumed. The flavor is tart fruit, malts and a mix of mild sourness and cinnamon in the finish.

maxwelldeux (3496) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Pours a hazy coppery-orange color with effectively no head. Nose is quite tart with some fruit notes, especially lychee. Taste is very sour and has a bit of a bite on it, yet is rather smooth for its tartness.

It poured a hazy golden color with a thin white head. The aroma was fruity, sweet, tart and some light funky barnyard. It had a medium body. The taste was a bit more muted than I was hoping from the aroma, all the same characteristics were there. It had the tart fruit, sweet, and a bit of sour funk. Very nice.
