Hazy pale peach pour with a two finger, creamy off white head. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruit, sweet cinnamon rice, lacto tartness and vanilla heavy toasted oak. Flavor is sweet tropical fruit, cranberry, vanilla, oak, cereal, cinnamon, a little savory salinity, that fits kinda oddly and some minerality. Medium body, slick entry, acidic middle and off dry, kinda soft finish, medium to heavy, sharp, but dispersed carbonation. Pretty tasty, it’s an odd combination, but I really like the cinnamon in there.

Taster at New Belgium Asheville. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Nice balance of fruit and tartness on the nose and tongue. I get a little wood in there as well. Very easy drinker!

Another decent beer down the sour path that NB has taken. Nice aromas and flavors of lightly sweet malt with tartness that is tamed by the cinnamon. Interesting blend.

(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.

Draft taproom. Aroma is totally lychee juice. Taste is lychee, not that sour, tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
