raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 18, 2008
Bottle 0,25 l. Darkish hazy amber or copper, good white head. Nose is malty, sweet berryish, some syrup and candy. Flavor is sweetish, slightly sour with a beefy malty backbone. Some berries and sour fruits maybe in there, but very sweet altho in a nice way. Good pleasant mouthfeel, pretty rich texture for the abv.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2008
Poured clear golden amber with non-existent head. Aromas of sweet caramel accompanied by wood and ciderlike acidity. Palate shows alot of sweetness upfront, with brown sugar and some honey, before the trademark lambic characters come into play. The sweetness tends to mellow the tartness and earthy funk. Finish is resonably tart with a touch of sweetness.

ajm (1065) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle from trade. Would be great except that even a scant 25cl is too cloying to finish comfortably. Sweet plum juice overly sweetens what I am led to believe is a decent lambic beforehand. Sugar dances around like an idiot.

Pyobon (899) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle. Clear golden amber with no head. Aroma was interesting, but not terribly appealing: funky, sour, estery with a hint of wood. Medium body with medium carbonation. Flavour is complex and dominated by a sweet sour balance. This balance changes through each mouthfull, but is perhaps a little on the sweet side, but not much. The sweetness has caramel, honey and very ripe fruit (apples?). The sourness is citrusy and perhaps green apples. There are other interesting tastes such as plain yoghurt. Overall an unusual and interesting beer that is very drinkable.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Poured a Hazy pale orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma sweet and saccharine. Flavour was similar, lightly tart with apple, lemon and honey notes. Moderately carbonated. Teetering on the edge of cloydom. Some sourness in the finish. Nowt special really.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - AUG 16, 2008
Primo Faro assaggiato, comperato in una piccola bottega in rue des Abbesses a Montmartre, da assaggiare nel pomeriggio (e così ho fatto, guardicchiando un’idiota trasmissione francese su M6 nella minuscola ma graziosa stanza dell’Hotel Utrillo); mi colpisce l’aroma, decisamente ottimo, degno di un vero lambic. In bocca è dolce e appiccicoso, con sentori di pesca e albicocca, ma una comunque non impercettibile presenza acida che lo nobilita. Somiglia più ad una birra che ad un lambic, in ultima analisi, ma sono giunto a ritenere che non sia un cattivo prodotto; quando assaggerò qualche faro più buono (magari di Cantillon) allora potrò riconsiderare bene la qualità effettiva di questo.

Bottle green, 375 ml
Appearance: Pours burned orange, peach skin like bosy colour, black breakfast tea like, colour of burned sugar being watered down a bit, body texture is a bit hazy, carbonation of body is lively like a fizzy drink, head is unstable, rathr fizzy to foamy but after a quick initial decrease it becomes very, very small and stable. Head colour is beige. There is quite nice lacing.
Aroma: Front is winy, some powder sugar, caramel and nice burned sugar, some notes of light white table wine, deeper there are some grainy notes, some accidity, creamy, milk, mild and well balanced aroma, ’a bit flowery’, some yeasty notes and wheat with little banana and some spices like clove.
Flavour: Really a very positive experience with my first Lambic. Front is naturally sweet like from the fructose of a very sweet fruit, later on the accidity begins to play a main part in the whole taste, especially just after you swallow the beer, later on there is a strong accidic taste of fresh green apple and natural soft and refreshing citrusy lemon without the shade of bitterness. Rather no hoppy accents playing any significant role here but there is some thin small of bitterness in the deep texture of it and some slight wheaty - malty notes, not that strong to call it bready. Finish duration is long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is accidic with some sweetness, palate is sticky from burned sugar and perfectly balanced by this stickyness, finish feel is accidic on the one&sweet on the other hand.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2011 Dark brown with a small head. Aroma is sweet, with toasted malt and a faint lambic background. The flavour is cloyingly sweet, especially the finish. crisp with caramel and fruit. The palate is a little too weak
