3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 12oz bottle. Pours clear copper with thin white head. Aroma is overwhelmingly sour, earthy, stinky, horseblanket. Taste is sweet but slightly sour. Definitely taste the sugar added to the lambic here. Nice balance and finish. Interesting beer. A nice finish. Aroma is stronger than taste here.

Caramel brown murky. Aroma is a bit of blanket - nice. Taste is very sweet - totally swallows up the sour vinegar vibe. Finish is sickly sweet. Tasty but way too sweet. Real shame.

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear amber ruby color with a light tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet berries, very mild tartness. Flavor has a big sweetness, touch of sour berries, but not much. Light to medium in body with a long lingering sweetness. Tasty. Quite sweet.

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.

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 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.

a light, purpley/pink color. good carbonation.
light fruity taste which ends very sour. Though the sourness comes and goes throughout various sips, sometimes stronger than others.

Solid lambic. I wasn’t a fan of the aroma as much as the flavor. The aftertaste is amazing. Very carbonated, sugary and sweet on the tongue.
