janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2008
(0,375 bottle, 4% ABV) Hazy and amber color with lots of bubbles. Thin and thick white, lacy head. Much sour apple and cherry in aroma. Fruity and sweet flavor: cherries etc. Very sweet and sugary taste. Medium-bodied, a bit carbonated palate. A bit mild but refreshing, very easily drikable and quite enjoyable beer.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, shared by dickinsonbeer. Amber pour. Aroma is sweet white sugar over a lightly sour beer. Same flavor, sweet white sugar up front with tart fruit behind it. Interesting.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Pours brown with a light, white, fine head. Aroma is grassy, barny, very unique. This isn’t all that different from Lindemans’ Gueze. Mouthfeel is moderate. Flavor is caramel, apple, barn, and pleasantly sweet. Very good beer.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2008
Bottle courtesy of thewolf: Poureda hazy orange color lambic with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of sweet notes courtesy of the candi sugar with some light sour traces and some light tart notes. Taste is also dominated by some sweet notes with light sour and tart notes. Light filtration with some great carbonation provide an easily enjoyable beer that would be even better in my backyard during a hot summer afternoon.

Habanero (2134) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2008
Pours dark golden with a nice creamy, off-white head. Good lacing. Sour nose with elements of yeast and candy. Very sweet flavour. Medium bodied. Syrup texture. Sweet finish. Okay - lambic is not me. Very soft drink or cider like.

Huge berry nose, sugar crystals too, copper, a small tan head. Taste is a softer sweetness then the aroma indicated, fruit is less pronounced also. Light bodied,very refreshing. My first Faro! Thanks Brian Morin.

Blom (809) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Amber with a low head. Sugary and dry aroma and flavour like an Asti with a bit of nuts and wood. The perfect beer for too much summer heat.
