Way too sweet. Maybe Belgians like this style, but no thanks. The 'Belgian Candi sugar added' (on the bottle) explains a lot. Think port wine meets Brettanomyces. Ick

Foam had disappeared into nothingness before I could take a good look at it. A lot of added sugar. This would be the beer that could give to some soda addict that wants to discover lambic.

Clear amber body with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, some citrus fruit, some apple. Taste is heavy sweet with medium to light sourness. Body is light to medium. Sticky texture, soft carbonation.

Almost champagne-like. Really bold sweetness and tartness. If the social tensions of Thanksgiving dinner were a beer, it would be this.

superspak (2636) - Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2014
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 11/25/2012. Pours fairly crystal clear deep orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of green apple, cherry, strawberry, peach, pear, hay, straw, grass, candi sugar, light vinegar, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky yeast and candi sugar sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of green apple, cherry, strawberry, peach, pear, hay, straw, grass, candi sugar, light vinegar, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of green apple, cherry, strawberry, peach, pear, candi sugar, hay, straw, grass, light vinegar/funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast and candi sugar sweetness; with a nice malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying sweetness and after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/syrupy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a very nice Faro Lambic style. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/funky yeast and candi sugar sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

wimpyjoe (3980) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle from Carrefour, Nice. Golden-brown, no head. Quite a tough little cork to get out of the bottle too. Has a sugary-fruit nose, but this is much more stated when drank and has quite a soured aftertaste.
