bhensonb (15489) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle at Theatre de Toone, Brussels. My first faro. Corked bottle. Dark hazy amber color with a head that ringed. Very mild aroma. Seems a bit soapy. Medium body with sharpish yet mild carbonation. It’s sweet and sour at the same time. Flavor is light sour, light oak, light raisin. It’s certainly balanced. Good drink.

Scopey (15263) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Bottle from Beers of Europe. It pours deep amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is pretty damn sweet: stewed apple, sweet plum, raisin, white sugar and a hint of spice. The taste is also pretty damn sweet: stewed apple, pear, raisin, touch of lemon pith, hint of tanginess (reminiscent of vomit), caramel and white sugar, with a very sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Far too sweet and not nearly enough tartness. I can barely get past a few mouth-fulls – drain pour.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2006
Bottle at home alone. Not sad or pathetic, just home alone !! Amber color, a nonlasting white head. Aroma: Honey, a little gooseberry, but mostly sweet. Taste: Very sweet, dry, not very sour. Reminds me of eating a bag of sour candy.

Bottle sample at the 3rd Israeli Sour Tasting. Thanks Lee. BBD 11/12. Hazy dark orange-golden. Somewhat funky aroma with a bit sugar. Sweet flavor with sugar, a bit of honey, caramel, a bit of wood, some funky sourness and light herbal bitterness. Medium-bodied. Decent.

Cloudy light orange, big head. Great sour apple flavour with orange / lemon, perhaps a bit too sweet otherwise. Cracking.

Tmoney99 (14752) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle with cork. Poured dark copper color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good barley wheat & yeast aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet fruity flavor with a solid fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.
