boFNjackson (4101) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle (thanks to hannont for sharing)... Poured a cloudy, golden, burnt orange with zero head. Nose had cedar, wood-like incense, and dominant yeast. Some acidity, funk, and tartness that meshed with spices and light fruits, along with wood (especially what came off like cedar). I could see this may be awkward and astringent to others. But I enjoyed it quite a bit.

neepsntatties (1170) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle shared by "hannont". Colour...semi hazy gold with no head. Nose...smells like a humidor with a lean towards cedar though the tobacco is there as well. Palate...lightly tart and sweet up front with an Aspartame like aftertaste then a brief shot of fruit before the flavour disappears.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - AUG 28, 2012
Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, acidic and some tart. The flavor follows the nose with additional sweetness. The palate is dry with sweetness and some acidity. Overall a good beer. [Rating #3500]

BelgBeerGeek (1297) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2012
At recent RBBSG my bottle

Head: small white, foamy
Colour: dark redish amber
Smell: malts, some sour, somewhat irony and sweet
Taste: somewhat similar to the aroma , typical Faro with typical Pilsner in the flavour ( cause this is a Lambic/Pilsner blend ... )

thx. to Vincent / Belgbeergeek // 75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2012 // copper / amber coloured with not much of a head // aroma / lambic dominates over the sugar. Girardin lambic clearly noticeable, lemon tartness blended with a definetly present but not overpowering candy sugar // taste is sour lemon with some mellow malt=like elements, light barnyard funk, touch of spices, hint wood and that bitterness that some lambic’s can have with a clear layer of partially eaten candy sugar running through it, almost musty // mellow, softer carb. neat in a style that I have mixed feelings about even if I like it

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2012
75cl Bottle@ RBBSG, courtesy of BelgBeerGeek. Amber coloured beer with a small white head and no carbonation. Light sour, short grainy hinted aroma. Medium to full palate, smouth and little sweet. Finish is sweet fruity. Rather sweet with a light grainy sour herby sweet balanced hint to it. Not bad.
