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) italianjohn (3254) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Golden amber pour clear to pale with thin off white head ... smells like a barnyard and tastes like belgian candi sugar very sweet and light sour funky apples some caramel qualities ... not very good sugary and dry with a dry sour/sweet finish meh 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 (2604) - 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! glennmastrange (2921) - 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.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle from Discount Liquor in Milwaukee, WI. Semi hazy orange/amber pour with a smallish frothy white head. Sediment was noticeable. Nose of red apple and maybe a touch of vinegar. Medium palate with higher carbonation. Taste was white grape, apple, tart cherry - almost sparking wine like (good call Darcy Folty!). Little bit of astringency late. Good stuff, and.....my 73rd and last beer style rating! Whoo hoo! garthicus (2945) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 5, 2011
Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: Hazy copper, small off white head. Aroma: Slightly sour, good fruitiness, caramel & a little tart. Flavour: Nice apple/fruit flavour at first, quite sweet and candy like, some good maltiness there too with a long sweet finish. HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
250ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Slightly hazy brownish-amber with an average frothy off-white diminishing head. Aroma of raisin, brown sugar, lemon juice and yeast - fairly sweet and fruity, but appealing. Taste is sweeter, a bit of vinegar tartness, almost like raisin and apple jack extra sour. Syrupy and light, nice acidity and carbonation, quick finish, fruity tart aftertaste. Nice one!! high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - SEP 3, 2011
An off-white head (that stayed present for a while) and a caramel red body. The aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sugar-sweet without being overwhelming, and the yeast, malt, and spices are present too, almost giving the flavor a dessert bread-like quality. I don’t normally care for lambics, but this is one I could drink on occasion. Very interesting. JRock72 (597) - - SEP 3, 2011
Small bottle like the one pictured. Poured clear light brown with little head that retained. Light sweetness followed by sweet fruit notes. Very nice and enjoyable.
