Just my second Faro beer. Not very familiar with the genre, but out of the two, this wasn’t the best one ;) It’s too sweet to enjoy for me. Has a fruity base of pear, apple and something funky like marzipan combined with soap or something. The the sourness kicks in, which is the special part of this beer, balancing the sweetness out somewhat, resulting in kind of a overload flavor sensation. That’s the part i like, but the flavor base is not my thing and it’s just too sweet without much depth.

Ciemnoczerwone, wyraźna piana, w aromacie słodko i owocowo, coś pomiędzy winem a oranżadą, w smaku owocowo, słodko i kwaśno, bardzo przyjemne

Piwo nalewa sie bez piany. Klarowne w kolorze ciemny bursztyn - jasny rubin. W smaku aromat slodko kwasny. Jak wino z brandy tylko nie tak alkoholowo. Lekka nuta octowa. Troche stajni i z owocow jakby wisnie. W smaku bardziej slodko niz kwasno ale bardzo fajnie to pasuje. Srednie wysycenie czuc bardzo przyjemnie na jezyku i podniebieniu. Goryczka minimalna. Piwo lekkie i mega pijalne.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange copper, thin whitish head, minor lace spots. Nose is sweet, fruity, a little funky. Tastes sweet, tart, a little honey and some ginger too. Really quite tasty and different.

WillemsUrenkel (1328) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2016
37,3 cl bottle from Bierzwerg bottle shop, Greven. Nearly copper in the glass with a small head. Sweet sour on the nose with some resin notes. Taste has fruity sourness with a parallel sweetness. Refreshing. Really really nice.

Acquired via trade with Chopz. 37.5cl bottle. 4.5%. Pours a fairly big foamy bubbly off-white head and has a reddish amber appearance with sediments clearly visible. Lacing is ok. Aromas are quite varied, some sour notes, cherries, dry fruits, finishes with what can only be described as humid basement aroma. Wow. Flavours are all over the place. It’s sweet, slightly sour, some tarty notes, some hints of apples. Cherries, sweet and caramel malts, a bit yeasty. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Slight drying sensation on the palate.

JPDIPSO (5381) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 24, 2016
Dark amber to nearly copper in color. Moderate, but stable aged paper colored head. Sweet malt, light apple, touch of tart cherry, and hints of hop sack and barnyard. Has a bit too much sweetness for me. Holy crap is this stuff sweet. Hints of oak and light syrup dominate the front. Lightly tart in the finish and linger. Not quite refreshing. Not a bad dessert. A touch sticky in feel. 4/10

Na początku mocny aromat bardzo przyjemny, nieco stajenny, owocowy. Barwa bursztynowa, nieco zamglone, piana nikła, która szybko ginie. W smaku kwaśne, fajne, stajenne, owocowe. Ogólnie krótko mówiąc; świetne piwo.

Butelka 250ml, barwa bursztynowa, klarowne, piana nikła, zostaje obrączka przy krawędzi szkła, bardzo ładnie się prezentuje. Aromat bardzo wyrazisty, trochę octowy, stajenny, lekko słodkawy, przywodzi nieco na myśl zielone jabłko. W smaku jest początkowo delikatna kwaśność (jak na lambica), która powoli ustępuje miejsca delikatnej słodyczy. Do tego bomba posmaków stajennych i owocowych. Bardzo delikatna kontra goryczkowa na końcu. Piwo jest bardzo lekkie, ale jednocześnie wyraziste, idealny balans.

Great Lambic with Large pallet and film body, slightly bitter aftertaste. One of the best in its kind! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
