perfectly balanced in sweetness & sours - best of both worlds you get with this one. Better cellar temp than fridge - tastes much richer that way.

Quality package, embossed corked bottle. Pop smells funky. Hypnotic pour. Full lambic experiemce, tart and farmy with candy sweetness. Perfect carbonation. Some very mild medicine in the background. Supreme enjoyment if you have a sweet tooth. An excellent example of a flemish brew. Does anybody know why they make any other style? Finish? What finsh, blast; its all gone. Need more.

Had this from a bottle at the Lindemans Brewery, sweet aroma with the nose of a traditional gueuze, appearance is as expected, taste is remarkable, unforgettable and very easy to drink on the palate.

Bottle from Ale Yeah! in Decatur, GA. Initial Worcestershire aroma and Flavor, then sour, sweet, heady. Brown color. Better the more it warms up. Meaty.

Lore (1061) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 29, 2012
beautiful brownish-red colour with minimal white head; sourish aroma of fruits, taste is dominated by fruity sour and sweetness with minimal bitter aftertaste; excellent lambic, may be perfect choice for people, who don’t like typical beer taste update: during warming up, some herbal sweety bitterness appeared increasing further the experience; really great ’beer’

Very good balanced sweetness/sourness. Excellent mouthfeel; carbonation and palate. This is my first lambic, and I really like it.

turbothy (1090) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2009
Pours dark amber (morning urine) with absolutely no head. Still lots of carbonation, though. Heavy, sweet aroma. Nice fresh tartness without being mouthpuckering, and very sweet which will not appeal to some. I like sweets.

These comments may show me to not have a beerophiles insight into the finer qualities of beer. Oh well. I like this Faro version of Lindeman’s Lambics much better than the Geuze, even the Rene. This poured with a nice off white fine foamy head and a little lace. Color is a hazy medium to dark amber. Aroma is yeasty, tart, caramel, toffee, wine. Flavor’s very similar. Nice sweet/tart interplay. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor. I really like this beer.
