piscator34 (2300) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, - JAN 4, 2013
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Dark gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of kai-lan, jasmine, and tart citrus fruit. Flavors are of water chestnuts, sweethart candies and tropical fruit juice. Medium bodied with a tart finish. Hard to rate, given that it smelled and tasted like liquid Chinese food. Very bizzare.

NikkTwist (2622) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft. Cloudy yellow gold pour. Soft white foam. The lychee nut is clearly present but feels over supported by blood oranges and mandarins. The cinnamon is also there but feels more like a hop element than an exotic spice accompaniment. Somewhat full-bodied. Does not feel like a Saison. Complex competing notes that almost work together but not quite.

suprchunk (2945) - Crestview, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Hazy yellow pour. Small white head. Little bit of lacing. Aroma of fruit and slight burnt sugar/cotton candy. Taste is a nice tart fruit, some nuances of spice and a bit sweet.

cheap (5231) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2016
Had this @ the magic tree, tap. Cloudy almost muddy. Pale. Ever so slight tart nose. Taste is somewhat mildly tart but was expecting more. Not bad, a little let down but make no mistake, this is pretty good. There is a little bitter medicine that I find unattractive in the finish. A bit of a turn off for wild beers.

Bif (1988) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 23, 2016
On tap. Poured a hazy golden color. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is tart with citrus and lychee and slightly funky. Quite tart with a fairly dry finish. Moderate body, Tart with a subtle sweetness to take the edge off. Nicely crafted beer.

MissAnthropic (24) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2016
A hazy pale yellow, slightly tangy nose with a background of lychee, especially on exhale. A lively tart flavor of lemons and lychee, more dynamic than the kettle sours with a pleasant depth. Good stuff.

Bill Becker (774) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUL 18, 2016
22 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with plenty of long lasting foam. Both fruity tartness and sweetness in the nose along with cinnamon. More tartness in the taste than the sweet notes but it’s still on the mild side. Cinnamon adds an interesting twist. The fruit I would call tropical. Fairly light bodied with medium carbonation. This is a good one.
