look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Hazy orange to gold color with decent white head and heavy lacing.

S- Sour malt- Perhaps light fruity finish to this. Smell could be more complex.

T- Sourness to start with dry vinous flavors. Fruitiness (lychee I guess) adds to finish. Slight cinnamon presence early and in finish.

M- Medium-bodied, fairly smooth with some bitterness feel. Tongue tingles from carbonation.

O- Delicious, yet I'd like the fruit (lychee) and cinnamon tastes to figure more prominently, and the sourness to allow these to do so better.

Serving type: bottle
