Bootlegger Paris 10/05. Amber with off-white head. minimal aroma. Very sweet. Not bad but fresh lambics are better.

AROMA: not very big, hints of fruit and spice; APPEARANCE: pours clear brown with decent head and effervescent; TASTE: sour and sweet and strong bitterness; PALATE: smooth, medium body, slightly spiked tongue, longish bitter-sweet finish; OVERALL: it is a pleasant enough beer, not that distinctive.

Given how high I rated this, I probably shouldn’t think it could be easily confused with a cider. That being said, it’s an enjoyable beer. The burnt copper color was nice. The flavor was a nicely tart apple. The only negative thing that came to mind was it felt like it had a little to much carbonation.

A nice somewhat brown, clear beer with a light brown layer of foam, in which some yeast still move around in. A somewhat sour aroma, a little bit like vinegar. A full, sweet-sour taste with some fruit-like hints which hangs on for a while in the aftertaste. Een mooi, lichtbruin helder bier met een lichtbruine kraag, waar de gistdeeltjes nog in rondzwerven. Een lichtzurig aroma dat lijkt op een soort azijn. Maar een volle zoetzure smaak met fruitige tinten, die nog lekker blijft hangen in de nasmaak.

The aroma was cork and oak with a strong saccharine characteristic. The aroma was lightly tart with an acidic nature and some estery fruit character. The beer poured into the chalice clear amber with a low white well lasting head. The flavor was sweet, very, very sweet. Along with the sweetness was a light tartness and a fruity character. The sweetness was forced and unlike a cloying malt sweetness, this was that of saccharine. The finish was sweet, of course, and the body was medium with a fairly low carbonation. I had this in Belgium fresh and found it undrinkable. This bottle was much more pleasurable, but still too sweet for doing anything other than putting on a child’s pacifier. 37.5 cl corked and capped bottle, purchased at a Delhaize (Food Lion) in Brussels.

Pours clear copper with a diminishing, creamy white head. Aroma is toasty, with apple, caramel, cinnamon, fruit esters, and funky barnyard. Taste is initially sweet, quickly fading to sour apple sourness and a clean finish. Carbonation is fairly high, and the finish is fairly quick. Nice cidery sour beer with some subtleties.

My first Faro! Thanks Bruce! 355ml bottle, served in a chalice. Pours a transparent brown with a bit of beige froth for a head. Looks very fizzy. Aroma: Sweet and sour. Bubblegum notes. Hints of maple syrup, caramel, and raisins. Made my mouth water! Palate: Medium bodied, very fizzy, medium-length finish. Smooth. Taste: Very sweet, quickly changing into a burst of sour, then tapering off with a sweet finish. Mix of candy and lemon and raisins. Really nice.

Pours amber with robust head, which quickly remains as a ring. The aroma is of bubble gum and champagne. The taste is sour and crispy. A lot of sweetness. No hoppiness. Intensive aroma. No unpleasant notes. Well crafted. Sour finish.

Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Popped the cap with no apparent carbonation. Poured vigorously to generate some minimal bubbling; pours a turbid brown/red with a thin white film, no real head. Aroma has some complex sourness in the background, but it is overshadowed by the back-sweetening. Same goes for the taste. You can tell there was an interesting beer back behind there, but it is extremely over-sweetened on top of that. Pretty much what I expected (except actually a little carbonated) - lackluster, but interesting style to try.

Tasted at beer judging school during violent thunderstorm. Aroma of daisies. Taste bias: it’s sour night. This seemed sweet and luxurious. Thick, smooth, if I knew what horehound candy tasted like I might think this tasted like it.
