MarkSachon (904) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Somewhat sweeter than most lambocs. Plenty of bitterness and an arid mouth feel. My wife loved it!

Pours light brown lots of head which dissipates quickly. Nice sharp tart and sweet taste. Impressive beer from this trusted brewery.

Ysok02 (895) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2015
Un faro tout en rondeur et en équilibre même si le sucre domine un peu, cela reste un plaisir désaltérant.

CanCrusher (895) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle 0,25L. Hazy orange color with small, fizzy, off-white head, that turns to a small crown fast. Specific aroma reminds me mostly of sour fruits, wine and vinegar. Very intensive aroma, but not really pleasant to me. Taste starts as a combination of sweet and acidic, but it turns to heavy acidic fast with a noticeable cherry touch and long lasting aftertaste. Interesting experience.

Sdaniel90 (894) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle, 37.5cl. Sparkling amber with a crispy offwhite head. Sweet, musky sour aroma, with hints of sour apples, fig, oak and barnyard yeasts. Dry and oily, with low carbonation. Earthy acidic character well balanced by the fruity sweetness. Very pleasant.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
37,5 cl bottle Deep copper colour, perfect head which leaves a smooth small bubbled layer til the end. gorgeous smooth vinegar nose. i cant help it, i really like faro lambics, even though i always feel a bit cheated since its just lambic with sugar. But even i am not always in the mood for full on vinegar. But i have to say its not the best, and generally draught versions are a lot better. Still very yummy though xxx

Not sure if I agree with the brewers comments as this beer was a brick red and definitely not clear. Taste wise this is an interesting beer that has an initial sweetness that transforms to a bitter finish and unfortunately leaves a metallic taste in my mouth. This is why my palate and overall score was so low. Thinking bad bottle.
