This is a wow bottle! Such a nice palet, a relative strong beer. like the 0,75l bottle anyway, you can put this one between X-mas beers! A wintergeuze with floral, alcohol, woody, and of course sourish accent

A hazy dirty dark lambic with a thin white head. In aroma, a superb lactic acid with epsom salts, horseblanket, so classic, turned to 11. In mouth, a nice smooth sourish malt, light vinegar, refreshing and smooth, I really enjoyed this one. Shared with Orlando crew, Jan 6 2011.

DocLock (10562) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2011
750 cc bottle from a Belgian Christmas Elf. Pours turbid ruddy Carolina mud/clay color with minimal off-white head. Nose is sour mashy gueuezy fruit, yeasty, lactic. Tastes tart, rich, complex as hell, very fruity, with a lot of lactic acidity. Smooths out as it warms, retaining the cobwebby dank ester quality. Very nice.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2011
Rating #1111 -- two elevens are better than one! Bottle from my secret santa -- many thanks for this rarity!! Pour a reddish/orange hue with a lasting off-white head. Smells predominantly of vinegar and dried orange peel. Tastes of each with added notes of sweet malt and candied peaches. Harmonious and delicious.

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2011
Bottle This beer rocks! Murky amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is funky and sweet and lends a strong component of toasted oak flanked by a minor note of bourbon. Medium to full-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is not all that similar to the nose funky, fruity and pretty darned sour. Sweetness is low. Finishes tart, astringent and bone-dry. This bottle of world class beer was very generously shared by Beerlando!

Hazy amber red color with a ring of head. Aroma of sour apples, tart cherries, yeast and vinegar. Nice tart flavor with vineous fruit notes. Now packaged with a crab in every bottle!

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2011
750 ml Bottle. Pours a slightly hazed woody amber red with no head- although some slight very soft carbonation at first, then it seems mostly still. Aroma is funky lambic like brett and sourness, cherry pit, mineral, cherry pie, rustic woody, earthy with dirt, light horse, kind of a cross between flemish red and lambic. Flavor is earthy mineral, lambic upfront, lacto sourness, slight citrus, medium citrusy funk, lemon, then turns to cherry pit, light vinegar, woody, burnt caramelized (well fermented out) malts, fully fermented caramelized candy sugar, and a big sour finish which seemed a nice blend and mix of different tart acids- lactic, tartaric and acetic (though none are too sharp). Mid-palate trace of sweetness, but it is mostly just a good sour beer wihtout any real evidence candy sugar was ever added either in brewing, fermentation or afterwards which leads me to say this is unlike any other Faro ever since it is not sweet at all. Wihtout knowing how this was made myself, I have to tell myself this is leaning mostly towards what a great Flemish red is like, maybe mixed in with a strong lambic for some added funk and lactic acidity. Faro? no. I still really liked this beer- nothing offensive, and just a whole lot better than I expected (thinking it would be sweet- which it wasnt at all). Great experiment whatever it is!
