Clear, copper brown. Small white head. Sour, acetic aroma. Woody notes. Similar flavour well balanced by the sweetness. Very good.

Tasted 2007-07-22. Toffee coloured, hazy, white head. Smells like lemons, peaches, strawberries and hay. Tastes the same. A very drinkable and enjoyable beer.

Bottle. Pours golden copperish with a very dense head. Lambic aroma’s, but more to say of the flavors who remain good in balance with no overdose of kandi sugar imo.

Brown clear pour with nice lacing. Slight fruity nose. Taste is very apple dominated with some dried fruit flavors and honey. Very viscous.

So adding sugar to a sour beer turns it into a completely different monster. I hate to say it, but, with a sweet Lambic like Faro, the beverage ends up tasting remarkably like a wine cooler. I’m sure this declaration sounds like heresy to many a soul, but Lambics whose only trait is that they’ve been sweetened to soft drink levels are not my cup of tea. Smells great, looks decent, very thin mouthfeel, even for a sub 5% beer. Glad I can tick this style off the chart and move on.

Bottle - pours dark amber with little to no head. Nose of brandy, malt, and plums. Taste is of sweet dark cherries, candy apple, malt, and cane sugar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle with big thanks to MrBunn for making sure I got a hold of this style. Pours an odd little tannish yellow, with very minimal head. Aroma is of sour, fruity funk, and that’s from a small distance! Sour green apples, lemon peel, and cherries all assault my tongue on the first taste. Very sweet to balance the sour. Carbonation is middling, and mouthfeel is a bit on the weak side. Wouldn’t drink a lot of this, but it’s a nice change-up, and I appreciate the chance to try it. Thanks Bunn!

Amber, white head. Malty aroma with sourish notes. Sweet flavour dominated by brown sugars and some underlying sourness (acidity). Oak, vanilla.

TizzleJizzle (621) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2013
12 oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a thin white top and some lacing. Taste of candy apples, sugar, tart, and citrus. Medium carbonation, medium syrupy body. Too sweet for me

An off-white head (that stayed present for a while) and a caramel red body. The aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sugar-sweet without being overwhelming, and the yeast, malt, and spices are present too, almost giving the flavor a dessert bread-like quality. I don’t normally care for lambics, but this is one I could drink on occasion. Very interesting.
