BMan1113VR (7854) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 1, 2013
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.

Pottle at Jacob’s Party. Clear golden/amber - white head. Nice barnyard and sourish aroma, wooden, light fruity, ok sweetness, syrup sweet taste mixed with the sour barnyard. OK....

75cl Bottle @ home. Amber coloured with some very light carbonation and a small to non-existing white head. Sweeter light fruity lambic hinted aroma. Medium to full sprankling palate. Finish is suggary sweet with a hint of sour fruity lambic. Nice Faro.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 18, 2012
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.

Huhzubendah (2496) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 17, 2012
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.

Gription79 (2253) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 13, 2012
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.

douglas88 (5925) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 26, 2012
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.
