Bottle pour in South Dakota. Really like this faro - first of this style. Sweet, cidery and a little bit of sour. Sediment on the bottom

wombat23 (1083) - Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Amber with a white head and plenty of particles floating around. Aroma is tart, vinous, fruity and sweet. Taste is sour, fruity, malty, vinegar, and very sweet. Has an exceptionally sweet candied sugar finish. Overall, its a bit strange.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2012
Pour red brown with a medium off-white head who quickly disappeared. Aroma: Sweet and funky with fruity esters. Taste: Acidic at first, then it suddenly become sugary. Weird sensation. Overall: Refreshing but too sugary.

Amber with a white head. Smells fruity and tastes fruity like candy. It is overly sweet.

Senka (1079) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 30, 2015
37,5 Sharp lambic aroma. Some oak barrel and lemon acid. Pours clear light ruby red with thin head. Sweet, sugary, acodic, yeasty and bitter at the same time. Totally new combo. Good desert beer. Sour middle and soft sour finish. Numbing. Beautiful lambic. Some apple vinegar in the last sips. BBE 1/7/2016

AskForJenny (1076) - Ontario, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2011
I didnt expect the sweetness, noting that more than the sourness behind it. Color was nice, a good red/brown, and the palate was like a bizarre lemonade. A good intro lambic.

phfyysik (1075) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2016
Pours nice reddish colour. Sugar comes up in aroma, as well as sourness and some juice notes. In taste sour notes are noticeable, but the taste of brown sugar suppresses down the regular lambic style taste. Not bad, but can be better.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 20, 2013
This was really interesting. Pours a reddish hue with a small white head. Sweet aroma with notes of apple and pear. Sweet and tart with lots of fruity notes in it. Very refreshing and crisp. Really intriguing and a lot more complex than I thought it would be. I would be interested in trying other examples of this style of lambic.
