3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Belgium, best by 2009. Kind of hammy, lightly sugary aroma. A bit of burnt sugar, kind of a bit of pizza smell. Taste has much more sweetness, but is well balanced with slight acidity and has a moderate amount of complexity. Perhaps bottled faro is not the holy grail, but this beer is very drinkable and tasty.

With this bottle, purchased in the Copenhagen airport, at last I’ve completed the styles!
For one unaccustomed to the faro style, this is surprisingly sweet (though perhaps not for a Lindemans product, nor unpleasantly so.).
Woody vinegar aroma; flavor light an easy-drinking flemish sour than a challenging gueuze. Tartness is very restrained, as is the barnyard. Woody flavors, lemon, plenty of sugar. Just a nice sweet-sour flavor, almost rather like an enjoyable soda.

Wonderful aroma and very beautiful presentation. Dark brown with beige head. Very fruity aroma, a little acid and sweet. Initial acid bite with fruits, roastyness, chocolate, wood and some sugar. A nica aftertaste adding some hidden bitterness to the aforementioned flavours.
I really liked this one, but not one to drink too regularly.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 06/10/2007. Bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington. Copper, tending amber. Slightly hazy. Collapsing off-white head. Mostly cherry, wood and sugar on the nose. Quite simple but very polished. In the mouth it’s sweet and sour - with a nice dry tannic finish. A nice balance between the sugar, cherry, and lambic sourness, with a woody tannic lambic character. Blood red oranges linger on the palate. Lovely. Not quite what I’d call "funky" but certainly very drinkable. A great apertif,or a digestif... or just enjoy it on its own.

Brussels-07. I’m not a huge lambic fan, but I can appreciate this beer. Pours reddish-brown with light head. Has a nice fruity nose, and taste is well balanced sweetness with hugh tartness and flavours of peaches, cherries and citrus notes.

Pours reddish copper with a thin, fizzy head. Aroma is semi sweet tart cherries, lemons, apples, and other berries. very light aroma. Full, well carbonated body. Flavor is lightly sour, berries, sweet malts, peaches, and some light citrus/orange flavors. I actually really enjoyed this. Light flavors, the sweet notes weren’t too overpowering like in some lambics. Refreshing, and I’d like to have it again.

Draught at the Poechenellekelder, Brussels. Amber color. Sweet, tart and fruity aroma with notes of cloudberry. Sweet and a bit sugary flavor but still quite nicely balanced by acidity and fruitiness. Notes of dark sugar and peaches in the flavor. Dessert wine like beer.

Flaske. Duft af rørsukker og smag af rørsukker. Farven er brun med et sodavandsskum. Det der gør øllen rigtig god er at den har en god surhed i enden. Og når man nu godt kan lide sukker så er det en god øl.
