I donít know why, but I associate the colors on the label with the color of the beer for the Lindemans beers. So this did not pour black, but rather brown-red with a whitish cover. Aroma is lightly tart, but largely sweet, caramelized malt. Taste is light liquid sugar. Lots of sugar, there is a light acidity trying to fight through, but it fails. Not bad, but largely devoid of any depth.

Pours an amber-copper body with a lasting beige head. Aromas and flavors of a Red Delicious Apple, some bereft notes. Slightly sour. Finish has a tea note.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2011
Looks innocuous enough, pouring a lovely clear copper with a thin white head that subsides quickly. Where it differs is the antiseptic sting on the nostrils upon opening, even before nosing properly. (This is my first faro lambic, can you tell?). Has that lovely distinctive lambic tang of berryfruit juice and a hint of armpit. Tastes juicy, tangy and almost as if it has cherries and raspberries in it. While the sourness isnít mouth puckering and doesnít turn your mouth inside out, this is inviting and tasty. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Expected this one to be a lot more sour than it is. This one tastes pretty nice and is easy to drink for almost everyone.

bergstaden (2266) - RÝros, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2011
Dark golden/amber with a small white head that goes away fast - aroma is of sweets, but olso with a sour note in the back - taste is of a very good combination of sweet and sour - this was very good and very drikable

RobertDale (5258) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 19, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of tart fruit, balsamic vinegar, malt and yeast. Taste is a complex mix of cherries, malt, citrus and sugar. Starts sweet and ends tart. Not sure what to make of this style. Interesting for sure.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Poured from bottle into my Founder snifter glass. Dark brown color with a thin head and what seemed to be good carbonation. Fruity aroma, hints of sugar and candy. Flavor wasnít as sweet as I was expecting. Fruity mostly. A pleasant and relaxing beer.

Veldrid (120) - Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with small head that is quick to fade. Aroma was green apples, and an acidic vinegar note. Flavor was green apples, sugar, candies, and acid. There was a slight tartness but it was out done by the sweetness. Drinkable but too sweet for me to truly enjoy.

flatmatt (1442) - Northville, Michigan, USA - JUN 12, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours clear amber with a very slightly off-white head. Somewhat sour and funky aroma with lemon, brown sugar, and cherry. Flavor is sugary and somewhat sour, tart cherry, lemon, brown sugar, a little herbal, and a little dusty. Kind of alternates between slightly strange and pleasant, but it spends more time on the pleasant side. Not bad. (And now I just need to rate a malt liquor to finish all current beer styles.)

Poured from a bottle. This is just an odd beer. A bit sour, but the foot influence is too much for me. I canít say I would want to try this again.
