Very enjoyable beer. Pours cloudy golden color with a rapidly dissipating head. Aroma is sour with wood, basement aromas, leather, and tropical fruit. Taste is sour, but not overly so. Also a bit sweet on the finish. Not on par with La Folie, but a damn fine beer, nontheless.

Bif (1982) - 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.

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 itís 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.

Bomber. Nose tart with generic fruit, lactic. Pour is a hazy orange-golden with a fizzy white head, bit leggy/oily. Very crisp and tart, zesty-sour but not extreme, light malt almost wheaten, with a milky feel under the effervescence. Lychee here is light and largely enveloped by general citrus and tart (lemon-grapefruit) -- you could have fooled me and said it was guava, passionfruit, even a blend of mango/cherry/grape. Low but very pleasant bitterness, and only gently sweet. Cinnamon does appear if I rush and gulp, paired with a slight scratch in the finish, but itís excellent for subtle rounding. Faint wood and structure in the finish is very nice, especially in the absence of heavy vanilla. When I stop to think for a moment, I realize this is indeed a notch above some quick kettle sour with fruit slapped in -- thereís more character, class even, and most of that comes from the wood. [2016.07.16: 3.5]

After a second bottle: alcohol adds a little size but not warmth or flavor, and the lychee accumulates with solo drinking until it becomes quite prominent (and distinct, as opposed to 22oz earlier). Well done. [3.7]
