3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) BB 2010-11, Drunk 2012-09
Very pleasant sweet aroma, like the ’golden nuggets’ breakfast cereal i had when I was a kid (that probably means there’s some butterscotch). Clear bold rich orange, brief head. Full sweet palate, gentle carbonation. Sweat breakfast-cerealy honey-covered wheat-flake taste. Rather nice. Finish is mostly the sweetness, and to be honest, I shouldn’t give this 4, but it was very nice in the mouth, so I have to. Overall, a remarkably drinkable modern faro, better than some of the more traditional ones I’ve had, to be honest. However, that’s because I think faro is intrinsically a modern sweet thing, not a traditional sour thing. If you want to stick sugars into your old lambics, then do them via the medium of young lambic, and give me a geueze. If, however, you want a luscious sweet drink, then make one of these.

This Lambic was a nice balance between sour and bitter. This was our favorite overall for the flavor. Cheers!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bière brune avec fine mousse blanche. Elle sent le liège sûrement dû au bouchon. Au goût elle est acide et sucrée. Très bonne bière.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Yeasty, barnyard and sour scents. Pours a cloudy bright brown with a thin off-white head quickly dissipated. Huge round tastes of sour apple with sweet tart lingering finish. Oily mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Really nice arresting big flavors. I really like it.

bouteille 75 cl - couleur ambrée assez sombre, odeur boisée, de sucre, goût sucré sur le sucre candi, une légère acidité, fruité et boisé, bonne mais peut vite devenir écoeurante

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Restrained aroma in a reddish copper pour. Tart taste to start is soon joined by a sweet body to balance and makes for a refreshingly different beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from Great Grog, Edin. Pours reddish amber with a brief sight of head and effervescence leaving a flat looking glass. Aroma is not entirely pleasant. Cheesy feet. Bit of sick. Old, wet wood. Red berries. Mulling spice. A little medicinal. All over the place but the some of it’s parts is not for me! Taste has a red-flavoured candy soda sweetness to start. Some lactic cheek tweaking notes come in. Lightly sour. More tart. That candy sweetness is too much. Very, very light carbonation. Medium to light body. Not. For. Me.
