Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Draft, Beveridge Place Pub. Cloudy brownish amber, small white head. Smells like a sweet gueuze, a bit of funk, lemon, sweet and sour apple. More sugary sweet at the start than it smells, moving to sweet apple and berry flavors, tart lemon, some lambic funky earthiness in there. Interesting and surprisingly drinkable, but I think I prefer other styles of lambic more.

bottle poured a red brown color with a ring of tan head on the glass. aroma has light acidity, candy sugar, sweet fruit, and some basement funk. mouth feel is light but has some texture and the carbonation somewhat low. flavor has an acidic base but the sugar just cuts right through it. mild damp funk and some fruits mix in with it finishing drying but the sugar hangs on. has some soda qualities and although interesting is a bit on the sweet side for my liking.

Gription79 (2885) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Sampled at the Bayous Wild and Sour ale tasting. Vinegar was the most dominating trait of this beer. There was a spicy and sugary aroma. Not a fan of this beer.

Quevillon (3022) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 7, 2011
375 ml purchased at Winooski Beverage Warehouse (Vermont), on August 2, 2011. Pale brown, medium head that disappeared quickly. Barley aroma of sweet fruit notes slightly sour. Taste of bittersweet fruis barley and, sweet notes of herbs, aftertaste of ripe fruit. A nice little sweet lambic!

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is sweet/sour. Flavor is mildly fruity (peach?), fairly sour, some lemon peel, not much funk, quite sweet. Dont have much experience with faros, but I like it. Very refreshing -- almost drinks like a soda. Highly carbonated. Extra candy sugar makes for a full but not heavy mouthfeel.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours a dark, hazy plum color with amber edges and a fizzy half finger head and that quickly settles into a thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Syrupy sweet aroma with some slight earthy funky. Lots of sweet artificial medicine and candy syrup with some pale malts and dark fruits. On the lighter end of medium bodied and very sweet with lots of artificial sweetness. Lots of candy sugar and syrup with subtle tart funk and sweet dark fruit. Hints of cherry, grape and other dark berries produce an overwhelming sweetness that lingers into a slight dry finish.

ElDesmadre (3625) - Mikołw, POLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle. Greyish amber with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of dry white wine, apples, subtle vinegar and elderflower. Reminds me partly of dark rum, partly of port wine. Taste is a bit drier than the Lindemans fruit lambics, sourish, vinous, flowery and fruity. Also sweet but this side is matched by the sourness. A bit dry finish with an aftertaste of plums and port wine. Excellent!

gramity (1634) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
Murky amber with a fluffy, small pinkish head. Nice sugary sour smell. Sticky sweet flavor at first, changing quite tart as the carbonation hits your mouth. Very enjoyable but extremely sugary. Sticky palate due to all of the sugar. Tartness coats the mouth. Very fruity.
