Pours a slightly hazy medium amber with a slight garnet hue. Excellent head, lacing and retention. The nose is a light white wine like sweetness with grape and berry notes. Light medium body with a touch of creamy texture. Normal carbonation with some effervescence in the middle and finish. The World Class flavor profile hits the perfect balance of sweet and sour, excellent intensity and reasonable complexity. It begins with a blend of tart sweet fruit. As the tartness fades, brown candi sugar becomes evident. The middle produces a light sourness that is sour fruit in nature rather than vinegar. The finish is a slow fade of sweet/sour tartness. This one is an excellent choice for lambic introduction.

This was a seasonal treat at Cafe Bruges in Carlisle, PA, delivered to me on tap. It had a lustrous dark red color, with a decent fluffy yellowish head (at least in the light I had) and nice lacing. Aroma is of berries and apple, almost like a root cellar smell after harvest. The taste is decidedly tart, with a mix of apple and berry that stings the tongue at the back. I detect an almost medicinal taste to it, but not syrupy. The mouthfeel is definitely carbonated, but not fizzy. I like the tartness on the tongue that lingers afterward. I am liking this Faro Lambic very much, and will try to get my hands on more in the near future.
