BuckeyeBoy (2471) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 13, 2012
12.7oz Bottle Pours out a rust orange topped with a small ring of a head. Aroma was very sweet some pitfruit along with lots of sugar. Taste was more of the sweetness and a little fruit.

McNeillR (983) - SCOTLAND - APR 5, 2014
Murky light brown, thin filmy ringed off white head. Balsamic vinegar offness. Soft soapiness to the initial taste, sweet floralness and murkiness that thins out to the finish. Dishwater mouthfeel, grubby tart linger.

Bottle, Cheers Stu666, April Not So Fools Tasting

ruigo (874) - PORTUGAL - FEB 1, 2014
Shared a 25cl bottle from Delheize (Belgium). Pours a clear brown colour with no head or lacing. Aroma is grassy, fruity and dough. Flat carbonation and light body. Taste is medium sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour. Overall, a not so balanced beer with no much remarkable about it.

Bottle at home. Very poor. No head, very sweet sickly, chocolaty aroma. Almost no sourness but overpoweringly sweet palate. Avoid.

prawlie (1056) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2014
Very dark red, almost black, with no head. Sour farmyard aroma. Sweet, a bit too much. Reasonably smooth, but bland. A big disappointment.

Lore (835) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 16, 2013
reddish brown colour, practically no head, just some off-white lacing; aroma and taste of fruits, some grain, wine, maybe yeast and sugar - would be much better faro with a bit less sugar and more intensive sourness

kraddel (2439) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2013
Bottle @ zytholoog 2008 vintage Pours dark brown ( very dark for a faro ) Realy sweet smell Very sugary ( older kind of sugary , bit caramelized ) still ok , but no complexity or sourness

Swaroga (1114) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2013
25cl bottle. Dark red and brown with almost no head. Nose : apple, caramel, cream, cooked fruits. Sip : medium body with low carbonation. Cloying sweet and cooked fruit notes. Sour and cloying sweet till the end. Buerk.

Theydon_Bois (7005) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle at home, from BOE, 05/09/13. Pours mahogony brown with a thin white swirl atop the glass. Nose is woody, burnt toffee, bitter orange, earthy, light medicinal notes. Taste is sweet sugary caramel sludge, background fruits, brown sugars. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, sweet sugars and caramel kick in during the finish. Drinkable - just, but too sweet, about time De Troch sacked the sugar fiend who turns all of their beers into syrupy sludge ! It started off fairly promisingly with looks and nose !

Aroma- Sweet n sour fruity, Very much like a fruity wine Appearance- Hazy amber with a thick white head Flavor- Sweet, dark fruit with a slight tart aftertaste, no bitterness at all, slight caramel and oak. Very good!
