2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: The pour is a clear amber color with an intense levely of carbonation but surprisingly little in terms of head.
S: The nose is very musty with some odd notes of cork and bread. There is quite a bit of sugary sweetness as well, but I expected that.
T: Wow, I was really surprised by the flavor of this. The intense sweetness was the first thing I noticed as this beer is very sugary. There’s also a hint of fruit and for some reason, a bile note on the back end.
M: The body was medium with a very high level of carbonation and despite being sweetened, still has a certain level of dryness.
D: This beer is really all over the place. I was not at all surprised by the intense sugary character, but the vomit flavor really seemed out of place.

Bottle at home alone. Not sad or pathetic, just home alone !! Amber color, a nonlasting white head. Aroma: Honey, a little gooseberry, but mostly sweet. Taste: Very sweet, dry, not very sour. Reminds me of eating a bag of sour candy.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Theatre de Toone, Brussels. My first faro. Corked bottle. Dark hazy amber color with a head that ringed. Very mild aroma. Seems a bit soapy. Medium body with sharpish yet mild carbonation. It’s sweet and sour at the same time. Flavor is light sour, light oak, light raisin. It’s certainly balanced. Good drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle with cork.
Poured dark copper color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good barley wheat & yeast aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet fruity flavor with a solid fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration.
This is a standout lambic.
