Couleur dorée pale, aucune mousse. Faible caractère de pomme verte, de citron et de brettanomyces rapidement dominé par le sucre. Faible acidité en bouche, finale mi-sèche, faible carbonatation. Tout de même rafraîchissant. En fût, le laboureur, Bruxelles, Décembre 2005.

Bottle with thanks to Nagi for hauling it back from Belgium! A bit of a gusher on opening, pours clear orange with a huge but fizzy off-white head, dissipates quickly nevertheless with good lacing. Aroma is hay, funk, yeast, barnyard, pepper. Flavor is lightly barnyard funky, but mostly saison-like with hay, grass and light pepper notes. Light sweetness remains, and there is a light lemony tartness present as well. Light body, high carbonation. Can’t see this as a Faro, but since I have tried only two others, what do I know :)

Draft @ A la Becasse, Brussels. Looks like apple juice, tastes like apple juice with water. Aroma has some slight candy, warm apple juice, diluted with water. Nice drink to have when you are thirsty. Tastes slightly bsweet, cannot feel almost any alcohol. Flat, no carbonisation.

JorgeLee (1202) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2013
On tap at La Becasse, served in a jug by a comically grumpy man wearing a very silly white apron. Poured amber and flat. Tastes kind of sugary and sweet, rather thin. Drinks like pop, goes down rather easily but somewhat lacking in anything resembling complexity. Not unpleasant, but not really interesting either.

Erzengel (2645) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2013
Dunkelgoldene Farbe, keine Blume. Geruch sehr frisch, leicht hopfig-grasig. Der Antrunk ist interessant: Sehr starker Apfelsaftanklang, auch die Süße ähnelt der von Apfelsaft. Leichte Holztöne sowie die lambic-tyische "Pferdedecke", die sich auch angenehm im Nachgeschmack hält.
--> ein insgesamt interessantes Bier, das aber deutlich weniger Apfelsaft und viel mehr Holz und Pferdedecke vertragen würde.
--> 10/13/8/10

Lowenbrau (1954) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 2, 2013
On tap @A la Becasse, Brussels. Subtle tart and caramel aromas. Pours copper-amber with very little vanishing head. Taste is sweet, caramel, very subtle tart, a bit watery. Almost no aftertaste.

prawlie (1151) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
Sampled at a la Becasse in Brussels. Yellow-orange, flat. Nice, smooth and dry, with a slightly sour taste. Easy drinking. Light sour aroma, fruity, sweet. Perfectly drinkable, but actually lacks a little lambic something.
