Light red colour with off-white head. Aroma of sour fruit. Taste is sweet with a little wry taste in the background.

Awesome lambic. Smells straight up of cherries, tart and delicious. Tastes are more of the same. Sweet, tart and fruity. Everything I expect from this style and it does not disappoint. Medium bodied with a lingering tartness.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Pours an amber color with a white foam head. Has an aroma of fruit, funk, and tart. Has a sweet fruity taste with a tart layer that is subdued. Candy apple notes.

BillWyce (1104) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From notes: Poured into a Lindemans flute- amber color similar to that of a good ginger ale, with a 4-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of earthy yeast with some sourness and a touch of sweetness underneath. Medium body with a syrupy thickness to it. Flavor is mildly sour. There is a touch of sweetness underneath that has a somewhat caramelly quality to it. Interesting.

maupie (1103) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2005
This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet with a light acid tutsh.

rane (1100) - Nibe, DENMARK - APR 16, 2007
Bottle. This is a difficult one. Amber colour with white creamy head ad good carbonation. Aroma is sour mayby a little hops, not nice. Taste sour with a lot of sugar sweetness and lots of carbonation. Too sweet and too sour for my taste. I doubt that I´ll ever get to like these beers.

screwball (1099) - Motala, SWEDEN - APR 2, 2008
Bottle. The colour is beautiful! It´s redish brown and clear. It has a small white head on top. This is the first time a had a faro. It has a very interesting aroma. It has alot. It´s winous, has rubber, rassin, sweet malt and strawberries. Flavor is very sweet and smooth. It´s almoust like a champagne. Malty. Candy. It workes nice with some chocolat and coffe. Or as an appertif.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Aroma is sweet syrupy cherry as well as touch of barnyard funkiness. Light golden color, thick creamy white head. Light earthy and dusty aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet, honeyish and quite earthy with a bit of fruitiness as well. Tartness appears underneath the obvious sweetness. Long Lingering earthy finish.

3.5
Sdaniel90 (1096) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle, 37.5cl. Sparkling amber with a crispy offwhite head. Sweet, musky sour aroma, with hints of sour apples, fig, oak and barnyard yeasts. Dry and oily, with low carbonation. Earthy acidic character well balanced by the fruity sweetness. Very pleasant.

kujo9 (1095) - North Ridgeville, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2009
Amber beer w/ a short lived off white, thin head. Lightly tart and sugary aroma w/ a touch of buttery barnyard. A touch of breadiness from malt. Flavor is balanced to sweet w/ a candi sugar toasty malt flavor. Light fruitiness and a touch of barnyard again. The finish is sweet up front, but dry and sugary at the aftertaste. The more lingering aftertaste is a lightly barnyardy funk. Creamy mouthfeel, lighter body and high level of carbonation. I’m not sure what to make of this one. I’m not all that hip on lambics due to their sourness, and this one has barely any, but I’m still not really fond of it. I’m not sure I’d drink more than one of these at any given time, and there’d be time between those.
