3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Nüetnigenough, Brussels. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with vinous and estery notes. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with nites of malt, caramel and yeast, and some vinous touches. Sweetish and slightly metallic finish. I like it but it appears too sweet for the style, possibly due to the presence of the syrup.

25 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet with some apples, a little bit of barnyard and some sugar. Taste is also a bit sweet with some sugar, caramel and a very soft sourness. Medium body and carbo.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
25 cL bottle at the M-Cafe in Leuven. Clear amber, no head to speak of. Sweet, smooth and a touch sour, easy to drink. Light fruit aroma, dry and sour. Reasonable example of the style. Fair, but hardly exceptional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sugaya. Light fruity (grape and berries) malt and sugary nose. Hazy dark copper/brown, with a massive raocky head. Sweet, with a light acidity, mild green apple-like flavors. Finishes with a push of sugar. Medium body. Refreshing at first, but then the sugary sweetness gets to be a bit much.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
25cl bottle from Vanuxeem. Pours clear dark brown with bubbly head. Aroma is a sweet precursor to a sickly sweet taste, with caramel, cassonade, marmalade and sweet molasses all getting a look in. Just way too sweet for me.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330mL bottle, pours a clear copper / amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out artificial sweetener and very light funk. Flavour is very similar, with loads of sucralose-like artificial sweetener - a touch of funk in the background. Pretty one-dimensional faro. Drinks easy and inoffensive enough, but not very stimulating.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
250ml bottle. Copper-brown amber colour, foamy white head and aroma of lemon, banana, straw & yeast. Taste is sweet, sugary, with syrup, caramel, tart fruit, wood & straw notes. Fairly smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, lingering sweet finish. Quite OK.

Amazing first experience with cask lambic! Totally differente than bottle. Sweeter, flatter. (the blackboard said Lambic Boon, but my guess is Faro, since the first choice isn’t available). Bret coming troug on a different level, more like Orval.

This was the first Faro-styled beer I’ve ever drunk. I didn’t like it because it was way to sweet for my taste. It has a verry nice colour , but not much of a beard (foam).

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Shirayuki Choujougura’s shop, 498 yen I believe. Served in a champagne flute. I bought this as I was looking for a Faro Lambic for the tick bringing me up to 72 out of 76... 4 more to go! A wonderful clear amber pour with a thin fizzy brown head that disappears leaving a ring of foam around the glass. The aroma is earthy, sour, tart berry like. Very light bodied soft mouthfeel. The taste is caramel or actually more molasses & brown candied sugar very sweet but it also has moments of fruity berry tartness. Quite interesting, I like it but feel it is a tad on the sugary sweet side for me. A nice interesting light beer though for 4%. My first Faro so I have no frame of reference but I will give this style a go again.
