thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 1, 2006
Pours amber with no head, but bubbles sticking to the glass. Smell is fruit. Taste is very sweet and fresh. No alcohol to speak of. Tastes cidery.

Christian (10782) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
Dark golden with a small head. Fresh aroma with lots of lemon, and perhaps some metal? Sweet flavour with some fruity acid underneath. Refreshing, but a little sweet for my tastes.

bhensonb (10367) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
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.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2008
Amber with tiny head. Sweet aroma with light sour notes. Sweet flavor with caramel, apple and accidic notes. Goes well with my dessert.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice clear golden amber colour with a small but well lasting creamy beige head. Good sticky and creamy lacing. The aroma has sour vinegar with some sweetness and good tostiness. The flavour has a toasty sweetness along with a pleasant refreshing sourness, good fruitiness and a nice sherry touch in the sour and sweet finish.

Tmoney99 (10102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2009
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.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 4, 2010
Golden yellow colo with very small head that disappears quickly; no lacing to speak of. Aroma of apples, grapes and candy. Flavor is dominated by the cloying sweetness that never lets up - nothing to balance it. Medium body. This one is too sweet, lacks the lambic characteristic sourness to balance it.
