[Bottle] shared by skyview. Pours a hazy gold with a small effervescent head. Aroma is sweet, slightly tart, some vanilla, and not a whole lot of funk. Flavor is sweet and sugary, slightly tart, some vanilla, and a quick finish.

Silvan7 (903) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 10, 2013
bottle @ home. Gustosa, acisa e dolce contemporaneamente con schiuma cremosa e corpo soffice. Un pelo astringente sul finale ma ben bilanciato dalla dolcezza generale.

Pours a light darker red with orange hues producing a foamy head with light carbonation. Aromas of wood/oak, sour apple, honey, cork, and slight cherry. Flavors of sour/spicy apple, slight cherry, honey, oak/wood, and light cork. Medium to high sweetness, crisp, slightly sour,clean finish with almost no aftertaste. Wow my first faro lambic. I enjoy the sweetness here and like this style better than the other lambic styles. Taste like an aged lambic but with a dominant sweetness (the only real taste difference).

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing it! Pours a clear dark reddish-amber with a big bubbly white head. Very sharp / tart aroma, of fruit, malt, yeast, and sugar. Taste is sweet and sharp, lots of sugar, with malt, plums, and berries. Lingering sharp sweetness. Tasty.

Flaske. Noe uklar ravfarget,moderat karbonert med hvit tynn skumrand. Smaker stikkelsbær,druestein,sitrus,kandissukker,gjær. En meget god faro, men føler kanskje den har en litt kunstig syrlig smak siden den er tilsatt ascorbinsyre ?

A incredibly interesting lambic, general fruity scent that leads into a tart but smooth caramel body, bitter after flavor but agreeable with a little bite.

Clear amber pour, white head. Aromas of candi sugar, and barnyard funk. Flavour is the same, on the sweet side. Okay.

Bottle green, 375 ml
Appearance: Pours burned orange, peach skin like bosy colour, black breakfast tea like, colour of burned sugar being watered down a bit, body texture is a bit hazy, carbonation of body is lively like a fizzy drink, head is unstable, rathr fizzy to foamy but after a quick initial decrease it becomes very, very small and stable. Head colour is beige. There is quite nice lacing.
Aroma: Front is winy, some powder sugar, caramel and nice burned sugar, some notes of light white table wine, deeper there are some grainy notes, some accidity, creamy, milk, mild and well balanced aroma, ’a bit flowery’, some yeasty notes and wheat with little banana and some spices like clove.
Flavour: Really a very positive experience with my first Lambic. Front is naturally sweet like from the fructose of a very sweet fruit, later on the accidity begins to play a main part in the whole taste, especially just after you swallow the beer, later on there is a strong accidic taste of fresh green apple and natural soft and refreshing citrusy lemon without the shade of bitterness. Rather no hoppy accents playing any significant role here but there is some thin small of bitterness in the deep texture of it and some slight wheaty - malty notes, not that strong to call it bready. Finish duration is long.
Palate: Body is medium, texture is accidic with some sweetness, palate is sticky from burned sugar and perfectly balanced by this stickyness, finish feel is accidic on the one&sweet on the other hand.

Pours a dark gold/brown with minimal fine foam. Smells sweet and slightly sour. Tastes very sweet and lightly sour of cherries and tangerines. Would pair well with fruit ice cream/ice and Belgian waffles.
