07.07.2011. 0,25l bottle in Paris. Aroma is sour with very fruity flavours. Very refreshing beer with good flavours! This beer has a lot off the same flavours as a white vine. There is also maltyness, malt sweetness and there is this vinous flavour from the yeast. Very very very good beer!

Sugary sour beer. A very nice, for me, alternative to a summer beer -- the lack of added flavoring (aside from the sugar), takes advantage of the refreshing qualities of the style.

Un buon inizio per entrare nel mondo dei lambic. Il gusto dolce tagli bene lacido classico delle lambic. Da consigliare a chi vuole approcciarsi ai lambic senza traumatizzarlo con qualcosa che pu sconvolgere.

jandd1983 (3945) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2011
It poured a hazy orangish color with a decent white head. The aroma brings out some citrus, grapes, apples, and some maltiness. The taste was somewhat sour, but mostly a refreshing finish. A very decent faro lambic beer.

Interesting beer. It poured out a light brown/red color with a light tan head, very carbonated. Smell is a mix of candy sugar and a light zesty citrus aroma. Taste is very interesting sweet of maple syrup and dark fruit with then a slight tartness at the end. Carbonation is heavy and dances in your mouth. Very interesting style. More refreshing than I thought it would be. Good.

BeerViking (4300) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2011
37.5cl bottle picked up in Delhaize, Ostend. Pours a slightly hazy orange brown with a fast-disappearing white head, tart lemony lambic aromas, crisp and lemony on the palate to start and with a brief but pleasing tartness, but then becoming very sweet and sugary, and leaving an unpleasant sugary residue in the mouth.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2011
On draught at Poechenellekelder on 30 March 2011. Orangey colour with a very slight spritz. Theres some tart acidity here - apples and lemon - and an edge of sourness but its overlaid by a rather sticky sweetness. Which is, of course, what is intended (maybe not the stickiness) but its not really for me. This draught version is more palatable to me than the bottled but its still not really my thing. I just dont find that sweetness and lambic character sit easily together on my palate.

Bright copper color. Taste is of a good ale with overtones of tart citrus, particularly lemon. Refreshing, easy drinking.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle. Rating #632. Big copper dark amber pour with a quickly fading white head. Fruity aroma, kind of like an underripe apple, a little bitter. Dry and puckering, apple juice, light tartness mixed with the sweet, pretty interesting. (1608)
