2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ La Becasse, Brussels. Clear dark golden body practically without any head. Mild fruity aroma with just a hint of sourness, otherwise its smells a bit like sweetened apple cider, peach and a hint of wood. Flavor is quite refreshing, rather sweet, fruity with peach and some apple, some wood, mild sourness and weak funk. Medium body and average aftertaste. Very easy to drink, OK for a few sips but end up a bit too sweet and plain. Reminds me a lot of drinking ice tea with peach and no carbonation. This is mostly a beer I just want to have tried when in the area but nothing to search for.

10-SEP-2015, draft @La Becasse, with Ulkløbben.
From giant stein:-)
No carbonation, clear golden, no head.
Cider-lie, sweet apples. Touch of tart, no carbonation. Authentic and fun but not a great beer.

On cask, Tasting Set at La Becasse. Doux is a golden Amber brown with a soft sweet nose of peaches. 4% lovely soft bodied, mild tartness and a sugary sweetness with peaches & cream. A great surprise. Delicious.

Bottle @ Hotel. Thanks, Bill. Gushed everywhere upon opening. Sort of hazed and amber in color with a huge white head. Musty, almost corked nose. Lots of lemon and green apple. Some sweet cider and simple syrup. Maybe caramel? Flavor has a decent tartness to it, but is certainly on the sweet side. Good lemon zest and some acidic apple and pear. Lots of cider and simple syrup. Lightly funky.

On tap @ La Bécasse. Slightly hazy orange with a small quickly vanishing white head and no lacing. I smell almost nothing in this one… very light notes of brown sugar and hints of lemon. Taste is similar to Ice Tea with light brown sugar and hints of acidity. Watery. Still. Bland finish. Not super tasty, but quite easy to drink. Too watery.

On tap at la Bécasse. Still gold pour, only a few loose bubbles of white head. Aroma is grainy, rotten grain, light cheesy notes. Taste is mild, not too sweet is about the best thing I can say. Palate is watery and flat. Drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at the famed Bécasse café in Brussels, where this is served from stone pitchers. An amber coloured, heavily sweetened but unblended lambic without head or fizz, and in that sense indeed a traditional faro, a style which was immensely popular a hundred years ago but has all but disappeared since then. Apple fruity taste, evidently thin mouthfeel, candi sugar, citrussy touches, lambic complexity and funkiness rather subdued. I’ll have one again next time I’m in Brussels, as it has been quite some years since I tasted this.
