@beer fest on tap, casked 2012
Amazing first experience with cask lambic! Totally differente than bottle. Sweeter, flatter. (the blackboard said Lambic Boon, but my guess is Faro, since the first choice isn’t available). Bret coming troug on a different level, more like Orval.

This was the first Faro-styled beer I’ve ever drunk. I didn’t like it because it was way to sweet for my taste. It has a verry nice colour , but not much of a beard (foam).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Shirayuki Choujougura’s shop, 498 yen I believe. Served in a champagne flute. I bought this as I was looking for a Faro Lambic for the tick bringing me up to 72 out of 76... 4 more to go! A wonderful clear amber pour with a thin fizzy brown head that disappears leaving a ring of foam around the glass. The aroma is earthy, sour, tart berry like. Very light bodied soft mouthfeel. The taste is caramel or actually more molasses & brown candied sugar very sweet but it also has moments of fruity berry tartness. Quite interesting, I like it but feel it is a tad on the sugary sweet side for me. A nice interesting light beer though for 4%. My first Faro so I have no frame of reference but I will give this style a go again.

Der säuerliche Geruch täuscht, im Antrunk ist die Säure sehr mild, eine zuckrige Süße ist neben dem Malz vorhanden. Zusätzlich ist eine pelzige nOte wie bei Süßstoff vorhaden. Malzig bleobend, nun ist die Säuerlichkeit gänzlich verschwunden. Naja... 6/7/7/6/6/6

[10/7/13] Bottle at Nüetnigenoughin Brussels. Clear deep golden-copper. Sugary aroma with light woody notes and a bit of fruitiness. Sweet sugary flavor, fruity, with a faint sourish hint and a light woody hint. Rather light-bodied. Drinkable, but sweet and almost no sourness at all.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
25cl bottle. Clear orange/brown with no head. Nose : light aromas overall. Fruity aromas of apple, pear and citrus. Caramel. Sip : light body, water texture with almost no carbonation. Sweet with notes of caramel and fruits. Little sour. Aftertaste is sweet and sour like pear. It hasn’t got a lot of character but it serves it’s purpose really well. Delicious refreshment.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is a bit "artifical", but still quite nice - with notes of powdersugar and a touch of light balsamico. Tastes like a soft drink (Pommac, Champis?) notes of apples and with a small bitter, alcoholic finish. Low carbonation. Good body for a 4%abv beer.
