3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (750 ml) @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Hazy caramel color with a low white head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramelized apples, Drie Fonteinen funk, oxidation, some fruitiness and wood. Taste moderately sweet (not that much for a "Faro) with caramel, funk, oxidation notes that fits quite well in the beer and help balance the sweetness and some fruitiness. Medium body (heavy for a lambic). Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish. This is the best Faro I have had for sure, but this is also the less Faro-like that I had. It’s surprising how the oxidation fits well in the beer. Tasty and drinkable for an 8% abv Faro.

Bottle 2008 - at sloshfest. Thanks Vincent (BelgBeerGeek). Pours deep amber with a brown hue. Slight to no head. Subtle forest notes, nuts and barnyard funk. Makes one think a lot of the T25, let it be a bit more refined.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours amber thick and unclear with no head. Aroma is light lambic tart yeast, not much though. Body is full and juicy with a dry ending. Tart flavor is smooth and well balanced without bringing puckering. Some light white grape flavors are really nice.
