Bottle. Aroma a little funky with light fruits and some pale malt. Flavor very sweet with tart edges. I have no basis for comparison, but on its own, a simple, refreshing drink for me.

Aroma is sour, dank, light. Appearance is rust, white head. Taste is sweet, which was surprising, then a little dank and sour, mostly tastes like apple juice. Mouthfeel is thin, heavy carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting style.

Moebbels (514) - FINLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Pours a fairly clear dark orange body with a quickly settling white head. Nose has some lovely sour berry, fruit, and yeast notes. Taste is quite sweet but a hefty tartness balances it nicely. Lively carbonation with large bubbles and light palate. After the initial shock this is quite nice and interesting.

0.75 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Vi?nja and Goran. Thanks! Blue cheese, cider, wine, dry fruits. Full taste, cellar aroma, sour bite, then sweet finish. Dry fruits. Medium body. Pleasant.

Not a lot of arome. Color is nothing special and absence of foam is normal for a lambic. The taste is very good and smooth. Not too acid as many lambic. Beeing not a fan of lambics beer, this one is maybe the best lambic I ever tasted.

Tap, Labeerynt, Gdańsk. Poziomkowy aromat tego piwa byłby bardzo przyjemny gdyby poziomki nie były sfermentowane. Piłem je wczoraj ale dopiero teraz przy opisie nasunęło mi się skojarzenie z bidonem, który przeleżał po szkolnej wycieczce w podstawówce kilka dni z niedopitą resztką kompotu. W smaku fajne połączenie delikatnej kwaśności z nienachalną słodyczą (niestety poziomki siały ferment w nozdrzach). Albo to piwko jest nieudane albo po prostu to nie mój styl.

tmrmwel (1368) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 23, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber to brown, with a finger thick creamy head. Aroma is nice funky farmhouse, with notes of wood, leather and nuts. Full body, with soft carbonation. Flavour has an initial light tartness, followed by sweet notes of kandi, wood, wine gums and nuts. A tad too sweet, but still has nice funky notes.

Maker: Lindemans Brewery, St Pieters Leeuw-Vlezenbeek, Belgium *** Beer: Lindemans Faro (bottled, unfiltered, 250ml) *** Style: Lambic *** ALC.VOL.: 4.5% *** "It’s made from malt, wheat, hops, water, yeast. Candy sugar is added before the bottling takes place. It is a clear, light red colored faro lambic with a small, creamy head. " [brewery note] *** Colour: Deep, hazy amber. No head. *** Nose: Intense tangy passion fruit, vinegar, yeast. *** Texture: Medium body, hardly watery. Modest carbonation. *** Taste: Fruit bomb, fruit bomb - you’re my fruit bomb ... Intense orange flavor, plus balsamico vinegar, but mostly fruity/sweet (they add candy sugar for a reason). Yeast. Some mild spices. Middle is more sour, mostly lemony and yeasty. Finish is the same, candy sugar comes to the front in the after taste. *** Impressions: Not a big fan of artificially adding sugar to the beer, but in the context of lambic it just works. The fruitiest beer I’ve ever tasted. The vinegar and lemon prevent it from becoming cloying. A special beer, to be sure, but one that should be tried.

Bonne bière fruitée, au col de mousse petit mais persistant avec une belle couleur cuivrée claire. Au nez elle ressemble fortement à la Kriek, une odeur de cerise avec une note boisée et caramel. Au goût c’est sans hésitation une bière fruitée, légèrement acidulée mais contre balancé par l’ajout de sucre candi. Un fin pétillant en bouche qui laisse un joli arrière-goût boisé et de noix. Bonne bière qui pourrait plaire davantage aux femme je pense, et s’accompagne à merveille avec un dessert sucré

Clear read beer with a strong vinegar smells but once you tast it its a whole ne world in the mouth. Great belgian candy taste wit a soft balsamic vinegar taste. Great taste, not something you find often in Quebec!
