Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2014
Aroma is fruity and slightly musty. Very light and subtle texture on the tongue with a mild effervescent carbonation. Sweet and sour cherry and raspberry with a crisp light dry finish. Tastes like cranberry juice with seltzer water. Some oak like barrel aging flavors with a hint of unmalted wheat possibly. Sweet beer that would compliment many light meals, but definitely not a session brew..A little too sweet for multiple offerings.

IslandHaole (1159) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 27, 2015
Clear copper colored beer with a cream colored head. Sweet & tart, like cherries with a dank, basement funky sourness. Very sweet up front but has that lovely sourness only found by spontaneous fermentation. Overall, quite tasty but just over the top with the sugary sweetness. Still, I do like this one, my 74th style rated!

anstei (532) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle from Bierlieb. Very sweet and clean, almost artificial and quite a bit like a sweet cider. Low funk. A very easy type of lambic, but too sweet for my taste, not quite refreshing anymore.

Aroma is sour and vinous. Taste is sweet, but also noticable sourness. Low bitterness. A little bit too sweet for me.

Wombata (567) - Kobe, JAPAN - NOV 13, 2015
Aroma: Light sour vinegar, fresh sappy red berry juice, dust, yeast. Flavor: Red raspberry/red cherry, hint of sour vinegar, wheat/yeast. Comment: Balanced but leans toward the sweet side.

Echon (148) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle, 25 cl. Clear dark copper body with a short white head. Very sour aroma. Rather sweet taste with high acidity, fairly well-balanced according to my preferences. It has some of the same flavours as the gueuze, although not as pronounced. Light body with average carbonation. The finish is dominated by the lambic notes. This is the first faro I have tried, and I think it is quite good.

gorkogrlo (255) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 10, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2015 Bottle. Dark amber color with small-medium head. Aroma of sweet dates mixed with some dust, barrel, vanilla, dark fruitsand porto. Gorgeous. Flavor profile is almost the same, not so complex, with more pronounced sweetness and apples . Actually with time it tastes more like apple juice than lambic. Sweet finish. Overall: really nice. Maybe too sweet even for style but still a great beer.

Pours reddish copper. Large carb bubbles. Rapidly vanishing tan head. Aroma is caramel, red apple, strawberry, fig leaf, candy. Taste is fizzy, sweetish and much sour. No bitterness. Medium lasting finish.
