nice beverage-- it shows how extensive the beer family can be, this scarcely seems like a beer at all-- there are few of the usual signposts indicating much in the way of malt or hops. one would guess this one is a relative only by marriage: brewing yeasts and some vague malt foundation wedded to dark fruits in sweet noble rot. it's a soft orange pour-- between tiger fur and apricot pastel yellow. there's a nice decoration of ice-white lace like sinuous veins in marble. rich aroma of cherrys, cedar, noga-hide upholstery, and some perfumes common to ladies bath soaps. i searched hard for the "barnyard" aromas, but found only the dried-flower smell of hay-- no horses or goats. extremely sippable, the 25cl bottle is an adequate serving size. is it sweet? duh, yeah, does michael jackson own a bottle opener? yeah, it's way sweet. cherries and apples with a very tart cranberry finish. lightly sour, acidic as a car battery, very soft creamy palette. the finish is all cranberry-lemon, which may accord with breakfast fare: pastries and waffles. contains no buzz that i could desern: this is suitable for children, pooh bears and sweat bees-- and perhaps the serious beer hunter searching for the outer boundaries of what we call beer.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilburís. Appearance: slight white head, amber copper color, clear, light lacing, head does not last. Aroma: grapes, oak, leather, prune, awesome yeastiness. Palate: light body, light carbonation, sticky fruit texture, sticky dry finish. Taste: very pleasant sweet fruit, into a malty, overripe fruit taste that balances the sweetness. very slight bitterness. Overall, very pleasant, maybe a bit too sweet, but pleasant.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Amber with a low head. Sugary and dry aroma and flavour like an Asti with a bit of nuts and wood. The perfect beer for too much summer heat.

Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a clear orange/mahogany with a fine white lacing. Aroma of soured fruits, funk, some apple, candied sugar. Flavour is lightly sour, some creamy cheese, apple, candied sugar, and some funk. A lot smoother texture than I was expecting - not as sour. Dry mouth feel, and quite a lot of sweetness, but not cloying, which moderates the sour. Nice.

Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear, orangey-brown with minimal off-white head, very tiny amount of sediment. Aroma slightly sour, some cherry and mild funk, but also a sweet maltiness. Taste has some of the mild sour characteristics of a typical lambic, but also a fair amount of sweetness (could give this to some of my friends who may not be able to take a full sour yet). Finish quite dry, but very bland. Medium-light body, slight oily texture.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A reddish color beer with a nice head. The aroma was sweet & candy like. The taste was very sweet, fruity, tomtatoes, with a slight carbonated mouthfeel. Too sweet for my liking.

pours a pale rose color with not head or lacing. aroma is fresh berries and sugar. taste is sour cherry, candy sugar, with a strong yeast presence. there is a great deal of sweetness but just a bit of bitter to balance out the act, especially once the yeast is added. finish is tart and sticky.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2014 Bottle, 37.5cL. Home. Name : "Faro Lambic Foudroyante", 4.2%. Bought Supermarket near Grenoble, France, during holidays. In the beginning, I thought it was a different beer !? A clear orange brown beer with a medium white head, poor persistence. Aroma is woody, fruity (apple), acid. Medium sugary sweet with a medium acid/sour background. Light body, thin oily texture, high carbonation, sweet finish a sharp sour note. Overall, I enjoyed this one a lot : nice aroma and taste balance. 8-3-7-4-15
</br> 1st rating : 6/1/2014 : 7-3-6-3-13 Bottle, 25cL. Home. A clear orange brown beer with a medium white head, poor persistence. Few bubbles. Aroma is woody and smoky with apple. This Faro is medium lasting sour and medium sugary sweet. Medium body, thin texture, a bit sticky, soft carbonation, soursweet finish. Overall, a good Faro. Too sweet in my opinion, but I still can appreciate sourness. Pleasant aroma.
