I was expecting a sweetened lambic here but was disappointed... this is in fact the first lambic I havenít 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 itís 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 doesnít feel exquisite, just lame, so have it with a chocolate bar, not French pastry.

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 shouldnít command premium prices. Not unlike a really mild Oud Bruin at times. Sweet and refreshing. OK.

Alengrin (1716) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Sweet, artificial faro since 1991, with a relatively dark colour and sweet character of brown sugar and caramel candy, lambic character weak and suppressed as always in this range.

Zeer lekker faro-bier, ik vond het een meevaller, zeker bij warmere temperaturen buiten.

Flat, no head, brown lambic with barley, wheat and 20% sugar candy. Aroma like prunes. Sweet taste. Don't like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a lightly hazy orange with 1 finger white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma - apple cider vinegar, white grape, and a really subtle note of funk underneath. Taste - obviously sweet, but also peach and brown sugar. Thereís very little funk on the palate either. Finish is long and sweet.

AshtonMcCobb (2542) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2014
25cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - cherry red with no head. Nose - dark cherries or blackcurrants, with a wild yeast edge. Taste - sweet fruit again, black fruits as before. Palate - close to medium bodied with a sweet middle texture and a slightly cloying finish. Overall - you would swear there was some blackcurrant in there. Quite sweet but despite all that, quite pleasant.

JulienHuxley (3041) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown, flat pour. Aroma is grainy, caramel, molasses, candi, light rotten woody notes. Taste is sweet, very caramel, flat Dr Pepper. Palate is sweet, low carb, almost flat. Itís gross, but drinkable (sort of).

tom10101 (2759) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (250 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Murky amber/brown with a small ring of off-white foam and no lacing. Aroma is of brown sugar, very light balsamic notes and caramel. Taste is also of brown sugar, light acidic, balsamic notes and light fruits. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Itís awful but considering that itís from Chapeau and thatís itís also a Faro, it ainít that bad.
