75 cl bottle.

Pours murky amber color with a medium head. Aroma of sweet and ripe fruits, citrus fruits also, some yeast and spices. Flavor of lots of fruits, some berry notes, yeast and spices. Surprisingly sour for a faro. Excellent.

lortsker (332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle 2008 vintage. Thanks a bunch Theis. Pours murky brownish red. Minimal head. You get a lot of grain, sour dough, rye bread notes, herbal and spicy notes, lacto, vinegar notes, green apples. A bit oxidised. Taste is like sultana raisin juice with hits of dry lemon and loads of lacto. Dried fruits, and apple cider vinegar. Really nice!

This was a treat, nice to finally see the top of the faro ladder! .. . pours a murky tan .. medium foam .. . trodden prune, clumpy sugar, barn bucket, and rope funk .. . slick mouth .. . pretty tasty . . .. Well, I could be wrong, but I believe, uh, diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the civil war era.

Advocate_Ames (429) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
2009 bottle. Not much in the appearance and hardly any carbonation. The scent is a tad funky. I picked up on a nice fruit scent. There is primarily sour grapes in the flavor. Overall a fine drink for its style. The palate isn’t hit hard and the tartiness fades nicely.

Very sessionable gueze due to the big caramel flavour. Very strange, even for a belgian lambic. Thanks Jack for a good couple of hours on the verandah.

Countbeer (4427) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 Bottle: Vintage 2008: Pours an almost headless (just some bubbles on top), quite flat, hazy amber orange colored beer. Smell wild yeast, brett, wood, hint of molasses, berries, wood, brown sugars. Taste is tart with yeast, sugars, honey, chalk, wood, caramel, sugars, barleys, sour yeasty herbs and darker herbs. Aftertaste is light wild yeasty and tart with some brown sugars, barleys, caramel and wood. Low to no carbo, soft light watery mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a light watery texture. Another great beer, delicious, balanced and easy drinkable!
