375ml bottle at 4.2%. Pours dark caramel with a small head. Aroma is sweet vinegar and some woody notes. Not over the top. Taste has sour lemons to start, then strong candy sugars and a sweet vinegar finish. Some Sharp lemon on the aftertaste.

Pours a medium brown with a small pale head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is toffee, apples, wood. Taste is sweet - apples, pears, candi sugar, and a touch of vinegar sourness.

AndrewC (379) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2011
I quite liked this. Mildly hazy pale chestnut brown colour. Smells of candy. Sweet-sharp candy-floss flavours with hint of hazel or walnuts.

3.6
erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2011
Clear and light brown with almost no head from the bubbly, soda like body. Raisin, sour green apple, bubblegum and grains. Sweet with only a light sourness in the middle. Short aftertaste. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable. (375ml bottle)

Prokroustis (745) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 10, 2011
Clear copper colour, extremely lively, white head. Aroma is nicely balanced between acidic and sweet. Some wine and wood notes along with some berries. Flavour is nicely balanced as well, with the sour notes along with the sweetness. Grapes, berries and a subtle mustiness. Very refreshing and enjoyable.

ryanfolty (2585) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Date: September 5, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: Discount Liquor, Milwaukee, WI Appearance: Orangish brown, slight amount of head and some sediment. Aroma: Fruity, maybe apple. Flavor: Consistent with aroma but also some vinegar, slight carbonation but smooth, almost like a sparkling wine or champagne. Other: Thanks to BVery for sharing, this was a difficult style to find!

3.1
glennmastrange (2899) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle. Moderate notes of hay, flowers, perfume and mustiness fot the major component, with back ground note of cherry, red wine, vinegar, berries and an overall sangria essence. Head is average size, creamy/frothy, white with no lacing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear medium red. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is medium, watery with soft carbonation. Again, this is not one of my favorite styles, but this one definitely shows the craftsmanship it takes to making a quality Faro Lambic.
