humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
(37.5 cl bottle from Carrefour Marché @ Saint-Cyprien) Pours a clear amber with medium, white head that lasts but doesn’t leave any curtains. Aroma is metallic and tart with notes of stomach acid. Taste is very sour and unpleasant to me. Oily on the palate, medium carbonation with a full, sour body and a sour finish. I had to pour it but it’s most likely because I don’t appreciate the style. Girlfriend says: "it tastes better than it smells but it’s not really very pleasant with this strong sweetness followed by a strong bitterness."

Amber pour with a bubbly off white head. Mildly sour finishing with a sticky sweetness. There is the lactobacillus sourness, but not much else in the way of funk. The underlying sweetness might be covering some of that up.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and moderate sour. Flavor is quite sweet, moderate sour and moderate acidic. Dry and moderate acidic finish. Gets a little sugary, but all in all a nice faro. 100811

Kronebryg (1124) - Sorgenfri, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2011
25 cl. btl.: Label said 4,2 %!?!? light head and very little carbonation semidark golden. Nose with apple, lemon curd and marzipan. medium body with some sweet length.Taste with sweet apple cider and a little sourness int aftertaste, orange confit.Not a typical lambic - but good! Especially after some time in the glass where the sweetnes withdraws a little.

rocbyter (2124) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Sweet fruity aroma. Clear dark orange color with a small white head. Sweet beginning that fades slightly but also quickly gets tart after the initial sweet.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Dieses Faro steckt in einer verkorkten 0,375l-Flasche. Ein weißweinartiger Geruch mit einer Ahnung nach Apfel macht sich breit. Der Geschmack süß-säuerlich, apfelwein-betont. Das Basis-Lambic kommt noch ganz gut zum Zuge. Ein schönes Faro, das prima über die Zunge geht.Test vom 14.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

PapaSkeetSkeet (1010) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Disappointing. Pours a shimmering amber-brown. Aroma is tart barnyard, slight caramel. Flavor is sweet like the other Lindemans, excepting the gueze. A big sweet sour caramel that could almost be fruity. Underneath it is a nice barnyard funk, tart and horsey. I feel like I’m missing out on my first example of this style.

onceblind (9662) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2011
On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver on 7/30/11. Copper hued, with slight haze and a small creamy head. Smells like oak and light lemon citrus. Deep sour aroma. Not pungent, just complex and not easily figured out. Flavor of creamy vanilla yogurt over a sour apple, with a little extra sour at the finish, light fruit like apricot in the middle as well. Pretty sweet and creamy, with a delightful sour fruit twang.

reebtogi (6267) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
Poured from 375mL bottle amber with short lived white head and no lacing. Aromas of yeast and caramel. Taste is quite sweet initially with a very mild hop bitterness at the finish. Body is light and carbonation is lively.
