Pour red brown with a medium off-white head who quickly disappeared. Aroma: Sweet and funky with fruity esters. Taste: Acidic at first, then it suddenly become sugary. Weird sensation. Overall: Refreshing but too sugary.

Amber with a white head. Smells fruity and tastes fruity like candy. It is overly sweet.

A parte il fatto che ho un raffreddore micidiale, però volevo farmi una bevutina e questo mi ha appagato abbastanza...

This was my first Faro Lambic. It still has the characteristic lambic sourness, but is tempered by the added sugar so its a balanced sourness. I liked it for its uniqueness.

Bottle pour in South Dakota. Really like this faro - first of this style. Sweet, cidery and a little bit of sour. Sediment on the bottom

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 20, 2013
This was really interesting. Pours a reddish hue with a small white head. Sweet aroma with notes of apple and pear. Sweet and tart with lots of fruity notes in it. Very refreshing and crisp. Really intriguing and a lot more complex than I thought it would be. I would be interested in trying other examples of this style of lambic.

ajm (1072) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle from trade. Would be great except that even a scant 25cl is too cloying to finish comfortably. Sweet plum juice overly sweetens what I am led to believe is a decent lambic beforehand. Sugar dances around like an idiot.
