A gueuze like base with brown sugar added for a little sweetening effect. It rounds the edges off the massive gueuze flavours in the base beers and amongst all of the faro's I tried, this was the best. OlJuntan64 (1264) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2002

Medium amber clear with medium lasting white head. Typical sour yeast lambic aroma but not as strong as usual probably because of the sweetness of the added sugar. Delicate smooth mild cider sour and yeast flavoured palate reminiscent of vintage Norman cider. The added sugar is very well masked with other sour flavours including dry altar wine (sherry) and faint wood. Finish and aftertaste are also less sour and more dry and vinous than their regular lambic. Recomended for those who have tried sweet lambics and like dry tastes, and wish to progress to a full sour gueuze.
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 This rating is for the tap version. Clear copper coloured with a small head. The aroma is apple vinegar- The taste is as the aroma plus the sweetness from the added suggar. There is no CO2 added to the on tap lambics. I had this to a salad topped with geuze vinegar. It was a very good combination.
