Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a bubbly head that quickly subsides. Very sweet on the tongue with sour apple and cherry flavours (also in the aroma). Smooth with a slight carbonation, itís incredibly easy to drink. Nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(0,375 bottle, 4% ABV) Hazy and amber color with lots of bubbles. Thin and thick white, lacy head. Much sour apple and cherry in aroma. Fruity and sweet flavor: cherries etc. Very sweet and sugary taste. Medium-bodied, a bit carbonated palate. A bit mild but refreshing, very easily drikable and quite enjoyable beer.

Bottle, shared by dickinsonbeer. Amber pour. Aroma is sweet white sugar over a lightly sour beer. Same flavor, sweet white sugar up front with tart fruit behind it. Interesting.

Pours brown with a light, white, fine head. Aroma is grassy, barny, very unique. This isnít all that different from Lindemansí Gueze. Mouthfeel is moderate. Flavor is caramel, apple, barn, and pleasantly sweet. Very good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of thewolf: Poureda hazy orange color lambic with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of sweet notes courtesy of the candi sugar with some light sour traces and some light tart notes. Taste is also dominated by some sweet notes with light sour and tart notes. Light filtration with some great carbonation provide an easily enjoyable beer that would be even better in my backyard during a hot summer afternoon.

Pours dark golden with a nice creamy, off-white head. Good lacing. Sour nose with elements of yeast and candy. Very sweet flavour. Medium bodied. Syrup texture. Sweet finish. Okay - lambic is not me. Very soft drink or cider like.

Huge berry nose, sugar crystals too, copper, a small tan head. Taste is a softer sweetness then the aroma indicated, fruit is less pronounced also. Light bodied,very refreshing. My first Faro! Thanks Brian Morin.
