3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

New Belgiumís LoF Tart Lychee is totally unlike any sour Iíve had. In fact, itís unlike any beer Iíve ever had. Gold-colored pour - textbook Sour appearance. Pretty typical Sour aromas, too: bright, fruity, and funky yeast esters - champagne-like. Flavor is completely unique with (very) sour sensations coming through, sweet tea-like lychee fruit, and a bit of spice. Itís tart, but also very light and refreshing. Itís stupid easy to drink. This is a lovely example of weird beer, one that I could happily tip back all day.

A- Plastic, rubber, sour, subtle lychee.
A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white fizzy head.
T- Sour, tart, very subtle lychee, subtle plastic, acidic.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish.
O- Really tasty. Could use a ton more lychee. It was definitely subtle and hardly noticeable. But even with the mostly absence of it, it was a great sour.

on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Hazy light amber color, white head that drops to a full cover, lace strips. Taste is sour malt that moves through light carbonation to a long sour finish. Strong for a sour, but also balanced and thirst-quenching.

Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Cloudy blond color. Light tropical aroma, mild tartness, a bit of citrus fruitiness. I would have expected more lychee; a bit moldy, funky in the final.
Pleasant fruity(-ish) sour.
