I had a taste of the Tart Lychee at Brouwers Bigwood festival, a celebration of 60 wood aged monsters. The Tart Lychee was a surprise for me, because I really don't care for New Belgium brewing.

It poured a frightening hazy yellow, smelled of apples and oranges and citrus and citric acid, it stood with considerable carbonation but very little head, fizzy like a canned soda. The sourness could have stood up and slapped you given just a hair of sentience.

The beer was magnificent, I quickly pulled it from table rotation and snarled at any hand that tried to liberate it from my grasp. This beer restored my faith in New Belgium to produce a beer of character, a beer of distinction.
