Bottle: Chestnut orange color with a minimal beige head. Nose is lightly vinous, vinegar, and oak. Taste is more on par with the faro sugar sweetness that (as a faro novice) I expected. A nice balanced sweetness and mild tannins. Drinks just fine.

Calisky (1031) - ALSACE, FRANCE - OCT 15, 2014
Couleur dorée orangée, bonne mousse blanche. Bon nez fruité pomme acidulé/aigrelet. Gout vieilles pommes, pommes sucrées, un peu acidulé sur la fin. Superbe! peut être juste un peu trop sur le sucré et pas sur le subtil aigre/acidulé pour être un top

Jow (2239) - New York, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours cloudy reddish brown. nose is dark fruit juice and hint of gueuze. Tastes of cherry juice, molasses, musty, grape skins, sweet tea, and some gueuzey undertones. Pretty sweet but not cloying. Could use more acidity to punch it up some.

nuplastikk (4673) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2014
375ml bottle shared by Anndiesel. Murky deep grey brown body. Significant floaties in my glass. An interesting mix of sour and sweet brown malt in the aroma. I really like the deep muddled sugar tones, and think this is a refreshing beverage...just one that shouldn’t command premium prices. Not unlike a really mild Oud Bruin at times. Sweet and refreshing. OK.

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Sweet, artificial faro since 1991, with a relatively dark colour and sweet character of brown sugar and caramel candy, lambic character weak and suppressed as always in this range.

Zeer lekker faro-bier, ik vond het een meevaller, zeker bij warmere temperaturen buiten.

Flat, no head, brown lambic with barley, wheat and 20% sugar candy. Aroma like prunes. Sweet taste. Don't like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BrettTaylor (521) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Poured from bottle into snifter. Pours a lightly hazy orange with 1 finger white head. Head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma - apple cider vinegar, white grape, and a really subtle note of funk underneath. Taste - obviously sweet, but also peach and brown sugar. There’s very little funk on the palate either. Finish is long and sweet.

AshtonMcCobb (2826) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2014
25cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - cherry red with no head. Nose - dark cherries or blackcurrants, with a wild yeast edge. Taste - sweet fruit again, black fruits as before. Palate - close to medium bodied with a sweet middle texture and a slightly cloying finish. Overall - you would swear there was some blackcurrant in there. Quite sweet but despite all that, quite pleasant.

250ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear brown, no head. Aromas of sugar, sherbet, blackcurrant. Taste is sweet, light sour fruit. Sweet finish.
