Must confess my bias before reviewing this beer. Spent part of my formidable years in Belgium.

This beer certainly took me back.

The appearance is not all that special but the smell is delicious. Keep in mind that this is a dessert beer. (not the sand dune dessert but the sweet after dinner kind)

The taste has some sour notes that only serve to accent the sweet smell.

Mouthfeel is smooth as expected. A delicious beverage.

I expect my rating to be a little over the top.

This is a great everyday sour beer, especially because of the price! It kind of reminds me of the Dechutes Dissident but lower in ABV and not quite as fruity but a great alternative. Definitely has some fruity aromas and flavors but it also has some spicy malts.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass; extremely light fruity flavor, tart and acidic with a clean finish. Very similar to other Flemish beers, but w/ an added sweetness (no doubt from the Belgian candi sugar) that almost completely masks the alcohol bite.

poured into duvel tulip

A: pours a deep reddish amber, with a thin half finger white head that fell to a thin layer.
S: dry sour sweet, a bit of funky barnyard and plastic aroma. this funk is growing on me.
T: a great balance between an almost lemon like sourness and a sweet toasted sugar sweetness, but it leans more toward sour. also a bit of band-aid from the brett.
M: light and quite crisp. semi-high carbonation
D: very drinkable, wish this were two things, cheaper and easier to find!

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.
