4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle from brewolf. Thanks. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head that immediately fizzes away to a fine ring. The aroma is distinctly funky with sweat, horseblanket and a bit of rotting fruit. The flavor is sour with green apples, melons, soured mangoes, acidic wines and salt&pepper. The palate is full and silky smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long, dry and sour. Overall: So this is a faro eh, nothing like the Chapeau that had a few years ago. I loved this, great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to MaxxDaddy on RB for bringing this bottle to Campground Brewdown. Yet another Drie Fonteinen off the list.
A - Pours murky brown with a small one finger tall off-white head leaving very small trails of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of very light funk, dark candied sugar, dark fruits, oak, caramel and a light mineral quality. This one isnít as funky as I was expecting.
T - Starts off with some sweet caramel malt and plenty of dark candied sugar that never really go away. Hints of dark fruits, oak, light musty funk and some minerals help to break up the sweetness. Finish is pretty dry, lingering on the palate long after the finish.
M - Medium body with moderate carbonation. Kinda sweet with some lingering dryness.
O - I enjoyed this one for what it is. It definitely sports some interesting flavors but it really isnít my style. Fun to try but I wouldnít actively seek it out.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this at the Campground Brewdown courtesy of Max. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Big funk and musk, light sweet oxidized fruit. Sour acid, and a lovely amount of Drei Fonteinen funkiness. Long musk and acid, funky and musky. Toast and funk, long acetic acid and funk. Very tasty acid on the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt!
The beer is dark yellow and slightly hazy, with a small head that leaves virtually no lacing behind. The aroma brings sugar, with a mild funk. Personally, I would never choose a faro over a gueuze, as I much prefer sour to sweet when it comes to beer. That being said, this is the best faro I have yet had, though my experience in this genre is quite limited. The beer is lightly sweet, and still brings a helping of funk, albeit muted by the sugary presence. A decent beer and a fun experience, I would have this again.
