Bottled. Poured cloudy dark copper, tawny foamy head. Nose was sour cherry, cask wood. Flavor is very sugary with a sour Lambic undertone. Interesting, but I prefer gueze.

Tap @ Taphouse. Clear cherry-amber pour with a medium, off-white, champers-like head leaving no lace. Nose is very fruit-juicy with a slight amount of tart promise. Light body with medium, coarse carbonation (again: champagne). Sucrose, undefined tropical fruit juice, a slight amount of aged, tart sour ale mixed in, but not nearly enough. Iíve not had a Faro before, but Iíd hope the others are more interesting than this simple, sugary brew. Another Lindemanís gateway ale, methinks.

0.37.5L bottle. Clear copper color, no head. Apple wine aroma. Sweet apple cider taste mainly. Old rotten wood, light caramel, sweet Sultan grape, and old wood again. To much sweetness for me, but very interesting and drinkable also.

KornDogg (544) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 21, 2010
Bottle from Alís in Harrisburg. Aroma is sour and yeasty. Amber body with thin lacing head. Flavor begins sweet and candied and turns to a sour finish. Lingering sour aftertaste. Very unique, a nice treat

Leuk tussendoortje, fris zurige appel in aroma en smaak. Smaak met iets meer zoetheid, mild en in balans. Licht bruisend.

S_Side_Smitty (541) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Pours clear brown with a thick off white head. Aroma is lemons, seltzer, & slight barnyard funk. Initially the taste is sour and lemony then the sweet maple syrup & brown sugar flavors take over. If something can truly be sweet and sour at the same time this is it! Wow! This is a fun beer.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Sour caramel and dusty nose. Very slight haze, warm orangey brown color, smallish head. Cola flavored gummies sweetness, orange pith bitterness, slight sour undertone. Lighter carbonation, somewhat syrupy body, finish is sweet, almost cloying, slight sour tang, maybe more tart? Never had the style, a little too sweet for my tastes, but interesting.

My first lambic. 25cl bottle. Pours brown-amber with a white fast diminishing head. Bready, sweet sour aroma. Flavour is sweet, yeasty, acidic wine, medium sour until the end.
