Theis (13408) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2006
Københavns Øldage 2006. Cloudy/muddy, brown/yellow. Grape/almond smell. Taste starts sweet like marzipan, the sour comes after. Dry sour finish.

omhper (19377) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2006
[Draught at Københavnske Øldage] Cloudy orange, no head. Lively barnyardy aroma. The sweetness is subdued, but it opens the flavours of the lambic, and lifts them to another level. The mouthfeel is so beaustifully soft and the flavours concentrated. Usually faros are seen as dumbed down lambics, but in this case it’s just maginificent.

Radek Kliber (6470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 31, 2006
Hazy, reddish-rusty brown, no head. Gentle sour fruity, citric nose, rhubarb. Very complex yet soft and gentle. Sugary front then sour in the middle followed by salty impressions with milky finish. You must like its soft texture and very late bready finish.

Hazy amber golden, no head whatsoever. Tart aroma with some toffee notes. Fairly light-bodied with a distinct sweetness and some rather unusual - but interesting - accents of dried fruit. Lovely. 190506

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2006
Pours yellow to orange, quite clear, with little head. Low carbonation. Begins sweet with tones of banana, oranges and apples that ends on a citric note. Quite sweet with long lasting taste.

mds (2209) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2006
Draught. Hazy, pulpy orange-brown with a medium whitish soapy head. The aroma has grapefruit, lemon pulp - very pleasant, among bread notes. Smooth and certainly very fruity with grapefruit and wheat undertones. Sweet grapefruit finishing almost like one of those Ocean spray cocktails. It’s pretty good but I wouldn’t want to drink a lot of it. I had the rabbit in gueuze too! Sampled at the restaurant in Beersel on May 11, 2006.
