Bottle thanks to Mar. Pours amber with white fizzy head. Aroma has a sweetness to it as well as a tart funkiness. Flavor is sweet, fruity, citrus, light tartness. Mouth feel is medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, I thought this was very tasty!

ilovedarkbeer (2300) - Dallas, Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle thanks to Mar. Pours and orangey golden color with no head. Smells exactly like movie theatre vomit. That is buttered popcorn, vomit, and maybe some old rotting fruit. Taste is bad fruit soda. Mouthfeel is somewhat lively. Trainwreck.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle thanks to Mar. Clear orange pour with small white head. Aroma is skunk, butter, gummy bears and funk. Flavor is cloying, butter, lightly tart. This beer was a mess.

Big thanks to mar for finishing off my last style! Clear copper color. Smell has light tart notes with some bits of fruit. Sweet fruit is easy and smooth. Some funky notes on the flavor but remains all around fruity. Not bad.

(375ml bottle) pours opaque amber with light tan bubbles on top. Nose of apples, tartness, and sugar. Taste of light tart fruits, apples, sugar, sweet pears, and lightly funky. Finish is nice and carbonated and fruity sweet.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A reddish color beer with a nice head. The aroma was sweet & candy like. The taste was very sweet, fruity, tomtatoes, with a slight carbonated mouthfeel. Too sweet for my liking.

bottle, golden brown with foam ring, aromas of sugary funk, flavors of sugar, sour lemons and funky sweat

These comments may show me to not have a beerophiles insight into the finer qualities of beer. Oh well. I like this Faro version of Lindeman’s Lambics much better than the Geuze, even the Rene. This poured with a nice off white fine foamy head and a little lace. Color is a hazy medium to dark amber. Aroma is yeasty, tart, caramel, toffee, wine. Flavor’s very similar. Nice sweet/tart interplay. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor. I really like this beer.

Pours a hazy amber red with small off-white head. Smells citrus lemons/limes, yeast - typical gueuze aromas . Taste is a nice balance of candy sugar and tart citrus flavors. Nicely balanced sweeter lambic.
