Bottle. Pours a golden amber with only the smallish of heads. Appears somehwat dead in the glass. Aromas are dominated by acetone and little else. Flavours show some lambic type sourness with a somehwat artifical sugary sweetness. Ok but had probably hoped for more.

Bottle. Pours with a orange hued body with a small white head. Aromas are funky and earthy, light cobwebs, lightly chlorophenolic rubber notes. Flavors are nutty and funky, low sweetness, a hint of tropical fruit. Lively carbonation, thankfully not as sweet nor medicinal as some other Faros.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in a De Cam tumbler. Thanks, Matt. Nose is lambic-like with slight funk and citrus but taste is harsh and a bit of a disaster. Lightly sour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at Volkscafé De Cam.
The beer is transparent and appears amber colored with a small, fleeting head. The aroma is sweet and bready. Gueuze flavors with sugar sweetness, almost akin to a soda. Similar to other faros I have tried, especially in terms of sweetness and body. Hints of tartness come and go, but sweetness prevails. While trying these faros is fun and adventurous, I would never choose this over a traditional lambic. Well done for what it is.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. There are dusty notes as well as citrus, acidity, not as sweet as I expected, hint of spice, lots of funk/brett character. Very nice beer.

750 ml bottle bought online via Etre Gourmet. Pours a dark copper color with a medium white head. A really cool nose of brown sugar and big cobwebs, some really sour hints. A refreshing flavor with lots of sour sawdust, some light sugary candies, well carbonated, very good. Tasty.
