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.

Brown dredge, no head. Aroma of balsamic vinegar and the stables of an upscale country club. Taste is smooth but sour with hints of brown sugars. Very low carbonation.

One of my two bottles acquired in belgium this year. I think 2008 vintage? split 2 ways at 60 degrees F. Stored on its side since February (7 months)
A - It’s a Faro so I expected a gusher. NOPE. Nice whisp of air. Very hazy ruby red glow. with a 3 finger head that fades slowly to some nice lacing.
S - Fades to some nice lacing. Nose is very funky. Lovely vinous notes with Brett and cherry pie aroma. Hint of sour cherries.
T - aste is a lot nicer than the nose. Tastes like unblended lambic alright. Slightly more sour than cantillon’s faro I had on draft. Very sour and the sweetness seems to faded. I get peaches and cherries with a lot of oak.
M - Sweet and cloyingly so but the oak clearly wins out and it’s a smooth mouthfeel with a great balance of carbonation
O - I’m looking forward to having this one again. A great beer that’s not really seeked out. It’s still drinking great!
