Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Pours a copper brown color with a finger of offwhite foam...aromas smells cheap and sugary, caramel, cream soda with a touch of vinous moscato... On the palate it is a lot of the same, ripe apples add to the mix but the caramel sweetness just over powers the sour funky notes making it more like a fruit juice spritzer.. curious to try other faro lambics to see how they compare.

Bottle at Broken dreams Borlänge. Lovely amber color, minimal beige head. Sweet and slight tart aromas with candy sugar, cherries and slight vinegar. Sweet taste with slight tart cherries, redcurrant, candy sugar and gooseberries.

fernockibeer (197) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 17, 2017
Butelka do 26.09.2018. Wygląd - bursztynowy kolor, całkowicie klarowne, z małą obrączką. Aromat - jest trochę funky notes, stajni, sianka, lekko piwnicznych nut. Smak - mocno słodkie, z lekko-średnim kwaskowatym finiszem, nawet powiedziałbym lekko cierpkim, trochę winogron i stajni, goryczka jest, dość konkretna, taniczna, lekko ściągająca, ciało półpełne, nasycenie średnie, w stronę niskiego. Ta ściągająca goryczka nie do końca przyjemna.

macior (25) - POLAND - OCT 5, 2017
Butelka 0,25. Barwa bursztynowa, piana nietrwała, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa. Aromat funky (końska derka, mokre siano), ale mało intensywny; lekko słodko-kwaśny. W smaku kwaśne z przyjemną, słodką kontrą. Wysycenie dość wysokie. Najlepszy z tej Lindemansowej serii, ale wciąż mało w nim lambika.

SG111 (1979) - New York, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Bottled. Finally got to try this style! Bought the bottle exclusively to try this style. Pours an amber copper color, white head. Aroma is kinda weird. Kinda like chlorine smell while in the locker room of a public pool. Tart, grass, hay, funky, sugary syrup. Bizarre. But not unpleasant. Flavor is syrupy sweet, tart, lemon, acidic. Fairly sweet and tart. Quite nice actually. Kinda sweet apple juice thing going on. I'd have this again.

Bottle. Clear dark amber,low,creamy,not too stable,white head,a lot of lacing. Aroma of old apples,spumante, fruity,honey,mustiness (in a pleasant "old house" way). Taste smooth,sweet and sour,very refreshing. Carbonation medium to low,initially tingling. Bitterness low,tannic. Aftertaste fruity,apples,musty. Somehow it reminds me of sipping old cider in a basement. Good.

3.4
rumore (705) - Rimini, ITALY - SEP 29, 2017
25cl bottle at El Lupulo Feroz, Oviedo, Spain. Pours light amber with very limited foam. Aroma is hay, barn, typical of lambics. Body is average, with some carbonation. Taste is weakly sour, and sweet. Finish is quite long with residual sourness.

Mariox (297) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 28, 2017
To już nie jest soczek z Lindemansa, ale daleko do lambika. Można spokojnie pić z gwinta podczas abstynencji

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Like a honeyed gueuze. A step above cider, I guess, but still a Children's Beer.
