Tart Lychee pours a deeply hazy light amber/yellow color. Carbonation is visible but only provides a half finger head that is gone as soon as it shows up. Reddish Amber peeks from the center when held to the light Very similar "sour" profile to La Folie and I wouldnt be surprised if the beer used in this was aged in the same oak. Theres a lightly sweet fruit scent under the sour that blends with oak and a roasty cinnamon. A nice layering effect in the scent here. A quick flash of malt up front is chased away by the La Folie sour profile of Lacto and oak. This is followed by an almost fruit juice like sweet character that makes the whole thing go down almost too easy. The roasty cinnamon is also there in the end but not very noticeable. Tart Lychee is not as sour in the glass as it is on the nose. Lightly dry in the mouth up front but "juicy" as it goes down . Decent carb, could have used a bit more though. Decent but for the price, I could get a 750 of Lindemanns Cuvee Renee for a much stronger sour profile. Still, incredibly drinkable and tasty. An alright showing from Fort Collins, something about this just keeps beckoning for sips and Ill buy another if only for that effect.

(from memory)

Visual: Pours cloudy golden orange with a large foamy head

Nose: tart fruity funked lychee (lvl-6)-pungency

Attack: crisp-creamy

Mid-palate: (lvl-3-sweetness), fruity aromatic lychee, mild wheat malt, soft tart

Finish: lingering fruitiness, cinnamon exhale

Summary: Great stuff, solid lychee flavour with a very nice fruity malt body. The cinnamon and oak are subtle but present.

Pours hazy gold into a tulip. Bright white head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Lychee, cinammon and oak aromas. Dry with sweet/sour lychee and cinnamon upfront turning to marshmallow and oak in the lasting finish.

Gold pour, white head.Aroma of raspberry, fruit, and spice. Flavor is lychee for sure, with nice spicy cinnamonness. A nice beer, but it falls a little flat.
