JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, - FEB 11, 2013
From the cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Darker than the lambic, more browny orange, hazy and big head. Basically tastes like lambic with a whole load of sugar dropped in (err wonder why?). Now I drink tea and coffee without sugar and don’t like them with any sugar in so I wasn’t going to like this really was I? Obviously becomes more approachable and less austere but somehow the sugar feels like it’s in precipitation and doesn’t blend with the beer. Stick to the unsweetened stuff.

Tide (1458) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2014
Draught at Moeder Lambic. Sour taste with apple, earthy notes, honey, acidic notes, toast and ripe fruits. Sour finish with honey, apple and acidic notes. Excellent lambic.

Härlig och läskande samtidigt som man lätt tröttnas snabbt. Lite udda och man får inte direkt cantillonkänslan. Härlig sötma. Glaset tog slut oerhört snabbt. Delar med Hans och J Wallén på bryggeriet.

tom10101 (2218) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Cask @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas (Bruxelles). Hazy dark golden / amber with a medium fully disappearing white head and no lacing. Aroma is of subdued barnyard funk, brown sugar, oak and some fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with candi sugar, oak, light barnyard, acidic notes and some fruits here too. Light body. Low carbonation. Slightly acrid finish. Not a bad Faro.

BuckeyeBoy (2453) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 12, 2014
On tap at moeder limbic. Pours out a hazy golden brown no head. Nose is funk grain and fruit notes. Taste is as the nose with a little pucker thickness and a great finish.

freretoc (441) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 10, 2014
Bu à la pompe en 25Tcl, couleur ambrée et petite mousse, grosse attaque sur l’acidité à la cantillon très citronneuse, mais le sucre candy casse parfaitement l’acidité en fin de bouche et la rend très facile, un délice

Belle couleur, nez plutôt plaisant sur le fruit, acidité en bouche mais pas de trop. Finale sèche avec une pointe d'amertume.

Growler at home, THX Mathieu87. APPPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, no foam. NOSE: alcohol, little fruity, hay, little sweet, horse blanket. TASTE: sweet, sour, flat, wood. One of the better Faro’s I had! Wasn’t that sweet at all, nice and sour.

abemorsten (2491) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Chez Moeder Lambic in mid November. Muddy, deep golden body with a fluffy small white head. Wooden barrel nose. Mouth is sweet grapefruit juice with a cereal finish. Medium bodied and a dry tongue.

JulienHuxley (2514) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2013
At the brewery. Clear dark gold pour, completely still. Aroma is very tame, only faint notes of Cantillon funk, very very light cheesy aromas. Taste is sweet, not overly done, cuts through the trademark Cantillon sourness in a pleasant way, interesting how the sweetness really brings out the woodiness in the beer, got some big bold oak flavor in this one. The beer is mild, probably just as acidic as any other Cantillon, but it certainly does not give you that impression. Palate is flat, finishes clean, semi-sweet. Quite enjoyable.

Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours cloudy golden with a short lasting white head. Aroma is sour, some sugar, funky and peach. Taste is moderate sweet and light to moderate sour. Medium body with soft carbonation.
