11th June 2013
Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Cloudy gold beer, little pale cream coloured head. Light palate, airy and softish. Fine carbonation. Interesting flavour - really not tart! Sweetish lychee and a super mild sourness. Mild creamy malt. Perfectly judged pinch of cinnamon. Finishes soft and dry. Very interesting flavour combo. But not tart!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The pour is a hazy straw color with some hints of orange and a very thin white head.
S: The nose is quite tart with some noticeable fruit character, though I haven’t smelled lychees often enough to positively identify their aroma. Some good green apple and lemon notes, along with a mild barnyard funk.
T: Lots of great lactic tartness and fruit flavors. Definitely some lychees, green apples, and lemons. The oak is there, mainly in a tannic and mildly funky form. Decent amount of brett funk and dryness.
M: A puckering tartness along with a dry finish, medium body, and moderate carbonation.
D: I’ve wanted to try this one for a long time now, and it lived up to my expectations. Great beer, nice balance, and complexity.
