16 oz can pours hazy yellow with a quickly dissipating thin head.

Nose is apricots, spiciness (ginger), and lemon sour.

Mouth is peach/lemon sour upfront, subtle sweetness and spiciness with a nice dry and crisp finish. Carbonation is spot on.

Refreshing and enjoyable sour. Goes down too easy.

Asiatic Sour w/apricot, peach, rice sugar & candied ginger.
Pungent, fruity, w/some smoky reduction(?). Tons of lime flesh, candied citrus & fresh apricot. Hint of coconut water. Med/med-low acidity. Hint sweet/sour, with fruity pungency running through all. Gorgeous from 1st nose/sip, & grows on ya. Another very impressive brew from Nightmare.

There's just something about stone fruit and sour ales that simply have a strong affinity for one another. And behind the ominously designed label of Nightmare Brewing's Ling Chi, the bright and racy flavors within are downright friendly.

Hazy chrome and coming with a creamy champagne appearance, the frothy sour ale strikes the nose with a winey, fruity twinge of stone fruit, champagne, citrus, green berries, cider and spice. A tinge of the nose precedes a brisk and fleeting malt sweetness of wafer, angel food cake and confectioner's sugar skirts the tongue before quickly dissolving away.

All that is a quick lead into a sharp and fruity middle palate of peach, apricot and nectarine. Those fruit additions are slightly more pronounced than the natural fermentae fruitiness that lies underneath with dry white wine, lime, lemon, gooseberry, crabapple and kiwi. A spicy late palate is a combination of the added ginger with the uniqueness of imperial strength alcohol that takes on the proportions of vinous spice and gin.

Light, spicy and highly refreshing, the lack of vanilla, lactose or cereal has Ling Chi offering a strong and highly drinkable bellini taste with a quick and peppery finish and a short aftertaste of apricot and ginger essence.
