3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on cask at the 3 Fonteinen restraunt. pours very cloudy golden with fluffy white head. nose is sweet corn syrup, citrus with subtle funk. flavor of corn sugar, citrus, some rustic quality, and melon. interesting but sorta kills the best parts of a lambic. mouth feel is watery and palate pretty long. refreshing, but i just don’t get this style but this is the best faro i’ve had yet.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ ’t Spinnekopke. Thick, muddy brown color with three bubbles on top. Smells like sweet, caramelized earth. A sugary, tea-like flavor with tinges of grapefruit, lemon, caramel and rust. Just a unique and damn tasty drink.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At 3 Fonteinen - Very hazy amber body with a yellow shine, thick creamy lasting off white head; Deep very big and pleasant nose, elegant dark sugar like with lots of sweet apple pie aroma; Soft texture with very little very soft carbonation, bitter, sweet and super fresh; Very long finish where the sourness truly shows itself, sour apple, and sugary apple pie. Great beer for the right moment.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On draught at the brewery. Hazy yellow-brown with a little (and unstable) offwhite head. Aroma very much as the lambik; oaky vanilla with lemons and a hint of sweetness. Flavours are a perfect blend of sweet caramel, lemons, vanilla and woody dryness. Light body. Perfectly balanced sweetness with a great lambik.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(03/2007. Draft at 3F resto in Beersel) A bit watery with a timid acidity. Worty and just too young ... seems like it wasn’t finished yet ...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Weird stuff. Light tan in colour, not unlike the gueze from the same house. Nose gives off a spirity, grappa like note - suprisingly matches well with sweeter fruit notes. Flavours are dominated with spirity, petrol-like note, not really pleasant at all. If this was wine I’d say it was suffering from volatile acidity in a huge way. Together with a low fizz flabby structure I’m not really inclined to give this sample the benefit of the doubt.

Muddy amber color; flat. It has some cellar aroma, and malt. Sweet Lambic, with low sourness, cellar, fruitness, light final astringency. Light but elegant final. Extremely drinkable!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at 3 Fonteinen restaurant. Good looks, spritzy with big head. I’m not a fan of the style but if you have to ruin good lambic, this is probably the most agreeable way to do it ;-)
