I was expecting a sweetened lambic here but was disappointed... this is in fact the first lambic I haven’t raved over. Simpler than I thought this style could get, the candi yeast covers everything in the aroma, flavour, and finish, and you get a slight sourness in the back but it’s way too small. Not even "out there", which must be hard to do for such a strange style. I guess it would be fine with desert, but it doesn’t feel exquisite, just lame, so have it with a chocolate bar, not French pastry.

Sugar cane and some lambic aroma. Sourness is completely voided by added sugar. For those who have a sweet tooth.

Bière très sucré avec un goût fruité. Bière plate. Le goût n’évolue pas. Un peu trop sucré pour une faro

Flat beer with a good taste of candy sugar. This beer can go well at the end of à meal, with a dessert or something sweet.

Trotz der niedrigen Wertung hatte ich Hoffnungen. Pustekuchen. Dieses Piwo ist ein dahingeklatschtes Lambic mit billigstem Raffinadezucker zu Tode gezuckert. Es gibt Aromen, diese werden jedoch von der Süße so vernichtet wie es bei deutschen Radlern zumeist der Fall ist.

Bottle from trade with Calisky - thank you, Fred. The beer has got a light hayz light amber colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of vinegar and rotten mandarinas. Taste of vinegar, rotten fruits, bread and basement. Unpleasant beer, didn’t enjoy it.

jake65 (2745) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle: Chestnut orange color with a minimal beige head. Nose is lightly vinous, vinegar, and oak. Taste is more on par with the faro sugar sweetness that (as a faro novice) I expected. A nice balanced sweetness and mild tannins. Drinks just fine.

Calisky (1204) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 15, 2014
Couleur dorée orangée, bonne mousse blanche. Bon nez fruité pomme acidulé/aigrelet. Gout vieilles pommes, pommes sucrées, un peu acidulé sur la fin. Superbe! peut être juste un peu trop sur le sucré et pas sur le subtil aigre/acidulé pour être un top

Jow (2323) - New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy reddish brown. nose is dark fruit juice and hint of gueuze. Tastes of cherry juice, molasses, musty, grape skins, sweet tea, and some gueuzey undertones. Pretty sweet but not cloying. Could use more acidity to punch it up some.

375ml bottle shared by Anndiesel. Murky deep grey brown body. Significant floaties in my glass. An interesting mix of sour and sweet brown malt in the aroma. I really like the deep muddled sugar tones, and think this is a refreshing beverage...just one that shouldn’t command premium prices. Not unlike a really mild Oud Bruin at times. Sweet and refreshing. OK.
