Pinball (10849) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2010
75cl bottle at home, bottled 25-1-2008 bought at ølbutikken Looking forward to this lambic faro as it is the highest rated of the style on ratebeer (only 15 of them, but anyways the best) clear coppery orange, very small smooth white head. aroma appears pretty sour and tart at first, also a little leather, but quite fine, dry and clean at the same time. the sourness is not acid. flavor is sourish, faint leather, the sourness is sort of hidden in a sweeter note of something resembling candi sugar or berries, however the beer never appears sweetened in a bad way. Flavor profile too is very tight and pretty dry. Very nice lambic-faro. The alc% stated at 8, but i can’t taste it at all, so alc. well hidden. Very tasty.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 13, 2010
Bottled 75cl. Amazingly delicious beer and dangerously drinkable. Complex and a huge surprise. Unique. Underrated in my opinion.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle, 75cl. Pours a slightly hazy and golden beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, sweetness, sour and notes of acidity. The flavor follows the nose with some additional notes of tart. The palate is acidity and fresh. Overall a good beer.

mjs (4613) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2010
(Bottle, 0.75 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured deep amber and hazy. The was hardly any head formation. Aroma had cady sugar, sourness and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were sourness, candy sugar, apricots and mildly bitterness. Aftertaste had candy sugar and sourness. Usually faros are disappointing but this one wasn’t. The candy sugar wasn’t overdone.

oh6gdx (20334) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2010
Bottled@fonefan. Amber colour, not that much head. Aroma is a bock beer meeting a gueuze along with quite sugary notes. Flavour is quite much the same. Nice dry, but sweetish sour brew.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle courtesy of mothman. Poured into a tulip glass a slightly hazed orange amber color with pretty much zero head, almost looks like a heavy herbed tea. The aroma is sour and tart, cherry and fruit with some earthy funky notes as well. The taste has notes of fruit, grape, some barnyard, and light toasted malt. The tartness is fairly strong upfront with a nice semi malty background. Lots of lemon zest as well. Light mouthfeel with very little carbonation.

Leighton (11034) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle at The Cad’s Pure Mad Rocket Mon The Beezer Tasting. Pours a cloudet garnet with a light film. Aroma holds tart and light sugars. Flavor is modestly sweet, woody, fairly sour, and fruity. Light to medium in body with liverly carbonation. Sour, light sugary finish. Dries out nicely, with the tongue tingling. Very good.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at The Cad’s Pure Mad Rocket Mon The Beezer Tasting.
A little darker than normal. The sugar is not really apparent but it’s certain this has extra balls. It’s a little thicker in the body as expected too. All in all, significantly better that other 8% lambics I could mention but I know that I prefer the regular more refined Drie Fonteinen. Excellent stuff all the same.
