Även det en Lambic-Faro som hade mycket diskret doft, smaken var ganska söt med spår av tall och enbär. Kan inte mäta sig mot Straffe Winter.

Slightly hazy red/brownish with a small head. The aroma was rather fresh with light funk, sugar and something "green". The taste was rather sweet but not too sweet in my opinion. Not a complex beer but refreshing and descent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. Actually a darker copper color. A sweet aroma of brett, massive funky brett and some brown sugar. The flavor is a dead on Faro: sweet sugars, leather, wood, funky and light tart lambic elements, caramel, low carbonation. Very nice. Nothing unpleasant here and a Faro is nice to try from time to time. Very drinkable.

Brown/Amber colour. Smells chemical, paint from a spraycan and like a barbershop. Tastes sweet, but watery. Mouthfeel is quite thin and dry.

Bottle at Chris O’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Amber color. Golden raisins, candy sugar, restrained sourness, raspberry and strawberry. Fairly drinklable but has only a faint of sourness (which is negative in this case).

Nice mahogany body, no head. Barnyard aroma, sweaty, not too sour, some alcohol. Very mild taste with spices, cloves, coriander. Body is very thin. Aftertaste is quickly dissappearing, albeit quite pleasant.

Thanks to Benzai for sharing:
Small (off) white head turns into a lacing quick, on top of a clear dark orange colored beer.
Smells like a pilsner with some good malts and sweets added as well as some bacteria.
Taste is more Lambic-ish with sweets, malts and some dried hops.
Aftertaste of elderly dried hops with a touch of sour, sweets and wood.
Low carbo, tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture.
