A - An airy yet substantial marshmallow head floats atop the glowing, hazy burned orange body. Head dissipates to a thin film pretty quick, but an oversized brandy snifter isn't the best goblet for supporting a luxurious head.
S - Almost smells like a champagne right away, tart sweetness like that of a granny smith apple. A little pie crust and earth in there, and not much for hops. Alcohol is barely there if you have a nose for it.
T - Tart right off the bat, but not overly so. Flavor is strongly of tart raspberries... I had to look up what a lychee is, but I'm assuming that is the flavor I'm experiencing. Hops are not noticeable, malts are pretty tame.
M - this one feels great, the smooth body does a good job of not over accentuating the tartness.
O - Definitely a different, interesting brew. I could see it selling really well in a sixer.

22oz bottle split with my wife. Served in a Prairie teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator!
A - Glowing orange apricot, with fine bubbled white head. Semi hazy.
S - Lactic and salty minerals, tropical fruit, lychee?, bubblegum, grassy hay, musty wood,
T - Candy tartness upfront, muted pink lemonade, tropical fruit, pineapple, soft caramel malts underneath. The sweetness builds toward the finish while the tartness fades but finishes dry and very crisp and refreshing.
M - Sharp carbonation, light to medium body, crisp and refreshing feel.
Nice balance of sweet and tart both of which are fairly mild. It's not puckering sour but it has a nice tart edge to it. Some woody funk and a nice fruit profile. Crisp and refreshing, a great summer time beer
