Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2010
Poured amber with a tan head that disappeared. Typical lambic aroma, but not surprisingly this beer is sweet. Caramel, some apple, white grape make it slightly fruity. Medium dense, low carbonation, somewhat oily top. Sweet aftertaste. Itís fairly well balanced. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had a sweet tooth.

gunnar (6062) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours murky amber with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of toffee and almonds. Taste is very sweet, rasperry and cherries, candy sugar and sweet fruit syrup. Turns sour towards the end, nice and even kind of balanced.

drfabulous (4494) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 30, 2010
Took a chance. Itís not every day the HyVee will stock something like this and I knew it by reputation, not taste. 375 ml. Super sweet. Candi sugar dominates whatever lambic is there. Iíd want this without the sweetness.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 Pours a hazy cloudy golden color with a quickly diminishing head. Carries a nice sweet fruitiness in the aroma, mostly of cherries. Definitely a bit tart in the nose. Very sweet on the palate with apple being the most dominate flavor. The finish is short and sweet.

Golden pour with a one finger head that quickly fizzes and pops away. The aroma is sweet funk with slight notes of stomach acid- not completely unpleasant of off, just strange. The flavor is just like a sweetened version of its Cuvee rene counterpart- farmy horse notes with lots of candi sweetness. The palate is medium bodied with low effervescence and a clean finish. My first faro, and not all that bad.

Bottle. Pours a reddish color. Slight sour aroma, with some light berries in the aroma. Nice light fruit taste. Strong sugar presence. Decent lambic.

A pale reddish color with a fluffy white head. Sweet and sour fruit aroma and a sour cherry-like taste with sugar dominating the finish.

DYCSoccer17 (3446) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Bottle purchased from Johnís Marketplace in Portland, OR. This is the final beer style for me to rate. Aroma is acetic, vinegary, spicy with some lemony hints. There is also a light sweetness in the background. Nicely aromatic. Moderately hazy orange body with a small off-yellow head that is quickly dissipating. Fair lacing. Starts with lightly tart, acetic notes with start which is followed by a dominant sugary sweetness. Slight lingering cidery notes and some yeast esters. An interesting experience, but this is definitely not something I would seek out again. Too sweet and cloying.

presario (4784) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Foamy head quickly dissipates leaving almost nothing. Dark copper beer. Sweet earthy leather scent. Sweetness builds from start to strong finish and aftertaste. Some bitterness in the aftertaste. Grainy brown sugar and brown rice middle. Earthy leatheryness to it but sweetness detracts IMO.
