UPDATED: JUL 22, 2012 Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear amber with big off-white head that dissapates quickly. Medium lacing, medium body, slightly sticky texture, and fruity aroma. Taste is sweet fruit (mostly berry) to start, dark candy sugar, and slightly tart fruit in the finish.

Csak a jó Sör, Budapest. Ködös, vörösesbarna színe van, fehér habja gyorsan eltűnik, kicsit olyan pezsgős a megjelenése. Illata almás, de inkább almaboros, igencsak cukros, és már egy cider jutna eszembe, de a maláta egyértelmű aromája szintén jelen van. Íze szintén almaboros (azért egy jobbféle), malátás, illetve karamellás. Egyszerre fanyar és cukrosan édes, ami nekem nem feküdt túlzottan, de azért nem rossz.

Bottle. Clear nut brown body, with a small white head. Aroma:taste of leather, farmyard, wood, sour cherries, acid, with a sweet body. Full bodied. Leaves a "furry" fealing in you mouth at the end of the beer.

I didn’t expect the sweetness, noting that more than the sourness behind it. Color was nice, a good red/brown, and the palate was like a bizarre lemonade. A good intro lambic.

Pours ruby red from bottle with an inch of light brown head that rapidly disapates. Lots of carbonation on the tongue. The nose is pungent with an undertone of sweetness. On the tongue theres some sourness but also a touch of sugar as well. This one lingers for a long time. Nice change of pace from the fruit lambics.

LiteWait (266) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Alston, MA. Clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is also sweet but with a hint of corn and cough syrup. Not bad but wouldn’t drink again. Shared with AirForceHops.

Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Alston, MA. Served in a flute. Poured a deep amber-red, almost brown with head that had good retention and nice lace. Slightly carbonated. Aroma was a mix of wild yeast, esters and sugar. Initial flavor was slightly tart with some sweetness. Sweetness seemed to come though much more as it got room temperature. Lots of a berry flavor. I like it and will seek out a few more of this style since this was my 1 st.

doublebock (551) - California, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Transparent light amber color with thin layer of white head. Sour aroma of champagne and cork. Sweet cotton candy like malty flavor with nice cherry tartness. Could use some additional carbonation.

In my search to get the award for all styles, i had to try this lambic as i am not a huge fan. I bought a bottle to share with a couple friends who all enjoyed it. I thought it was very sweet with a good flavor of sugar and candy.

Pours clear amber color with a very fizzy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with some fruity, almost raisin-y funk. As I anticipated, the funk is pretty mild compared to a lot of lambics. Flavor is malty with a sort of apply cider character to it. A little sour bite, but pretty mild. A slight spritz to it. Has an interesting finish to it. Not necessarily dry, but something like it? A very faint bitterness too. I’m actually pleasantly surprised, as I haven’t been a huge fan of a lot of the Faros I’ve tried.
