Pours like orange juice, murky and cloudy with almost no head. Nose brings on some tart citrus and funky cheese... but in a good way. Flavor is very tart and sour, big juicy citrus flavors, hints of pepper into the finish. Excellent beer.

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.

Bottle. 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.

Pours a bright straw yellow with a foamy white head. Funky tart aroma. Taste is somewhat tart but a little dry. Not as enjoyable as I had hoped for but not bad.

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.
