Apricot colored pour, fairly clearish, and almost no head. Mostly non-descript because the head is so meager. There's no retention and what's there is quickly relegated to the perimeter. Little lace. Disappointing.
There's redemption in the nose as its bursting with smells. "Sour" and cinnamon are dominant. I'm not sure what a lychee even is, but there's something strange in there. Overall, the scent is very American Wild Ale-like.
Without knowing what lychee tastes like, I can't comment on it but there's something very unusual and sour in the taste. My whole mouth puckers and I can't really pick up anything individually. The taste isn't bad, it's just hard to define and the sour is fairly overpowering.
Very kriek-ish. Sour and tart ruined my palate. My pucker taste buds worked overtime to down the bottle. Very crisp and exceptionally dry. The pucker factor is high. Despite the crisp, dry finish, my mouth won't stop watering.
Certainly an acquired taste. I can't express the complexity of this. There's so much flavor, but it's hard to differentiate one ingredient from another because of the sourness. It's not smooth and it doesn't go down easy. However, your palate is certainly cleansed after each sip.
