Brussels-07. Iím not a huge lambic fan, but I can appreciate this beer. Pours reddish-brown with light head. Has a nice fruity nose, and taste is well balanced sweetness with hugh tartness and flavours of peaches, cherries and citrus notes.

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.

Transparent light amber color with thin layer of white head. Sour aroma of champagne and cork. Sweet cotton candy like malty flavor with nice cherry tartness. Could use some additional carbonation.

Bottle thanks to llcooldave. Diabetics----Watch out for this beer!!!! Poured a clear, glowing light copper body with a bit of head that left some lacing. Aromas of tartness, citric, white wine, sour, fruity and sour apples. Flavors of sour apples, lightly acetic, medium+ sweetness that overpowers the tart/citric aspect. Active, soft carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Sweet and tart.

Pours with a short lived, white foam. The beer is a crystal clear brown and quite effervescent. Nose is mouthwateringly tart with sour apples and toffees. The flavor is a mixture of sugary, sweet tea-like notes with a metallic twang in the finish.

12 oz bottle. My first of the style, so canít do much comparisons here. This was actually rather as expected though, with it being mild on the funk, lighter on the body, and candy sugary sweet in flavor. It pours with a bright white layer of small bubble head, with a ring of retention, a transparent, honey-like golden-caramel color. The aroma is light and sugary with some unique qualities to it. Some olives, honey, caramel, cinnamon-like spice, and cheesy grass can be appreciated. The body starts out with a decent, sparkling carbonation with light oil and vinegar coming in to give a quite unique feel. Would definitely like more of the funk (which is quite minor) to take over and balance out the sugary sweetness that dominates. Honey and light sugary fig are prominent, giving it an almost mead-like quality. Cinnamon spice, caramel candy, green apples, tart pears, light vinegar, and minor toasty crackers in there as well as a light cheesiness. Overall, this was interesting, but there is no way I could drink more than one of these in a night.

Bottle, 250 ml. Aber coloration with a white head. Sweet, bitter and dry at the same time. Notes of cinnamon and ginger. Sweet in the begginig and bitter and dry in the final. Very different (and nice) beer.

I am a fan of Lambic in general but it turns out I am not a fan of Faro. Funk comes through in the nose with a sweetness to boot. Flavor is lambic funk in the background with a sweetness cutting through the funk. A little to sweet for me.
