Ungstrup (34320) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 29, 2006
I had this just as Mads and Jeppe at the 3 Fonteinen restaurant with a dish of rabbit in gueuze - just 2 months later.

The beer is hazy orange-brown with an orange head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel and candy sugar, but also slight notes of acidity and wood. The flavor is lovely sweet with a trace of acidity in the background as well as notes of oranges. The mouthfeel is quite flat. This is really a kids drink - very sweet.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2006
Hazy amber golden, no head whatsoever. Tart aroma with some toffee notes. Fairly light-bodied with a distinct sweetness and some rather unusual - but interesting - accents of dried fruit. Lovely. 190506

omhper (23428) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2006
[Draught at Københavnske Øldage] Cloudy orange, no head. Lively barnyardy aroma. The sweetness is subdued, but it opens the flavours of the lambic, and lifts them to another level. The mouthfeel is so beaustifully soft and the flavours concentrated. Usually faros are seen as dumbed down lambics, but in this case it’s just maginificent.

Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Pours a cloudy orange colour with no head. Has a barnyard aroma and some citric fruity hints. Sweet fruity flavor with some acidic hints. Sweet finish with some nice sourness in the aftertaste. A very good faro.

Muddy amber color; flat. It has some cellar aroma, and malt. Sweet Lambic, with low sourness, cellar, fruitness, light final astringency. Light but elegant final. Extremely drinkable!

Theydon_Bois (16865) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Tap at 3F restaurant, 20/11/15. Chestnut brown with a big old egg shell white head of bubbles that retains well - a real looker of a beer. Nose is sweet candy, mince pie, dried fruits, Xmas cake, lemon drizzle, candied sugars. Taste is full on sucre, marzipan, sweet licks, light balsa wood, dried fruit, caramelised figs, sweet stuff indeed. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet sugary close. Ok for style but overly sweet.
