Bottle. Pours amber with lots of protein globules floating about. Smells and tastes strongly of sugar and honey with some peas and earthy notes on the finish.

VsXsV (1896) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2012
Old bottle at Akkurat. Almost clear, red/brown liquid with medium light brown head. Aroma of raw sugar, vinegar, some alcohol, toffee and port/cardboard oxidization. Not too enjoyable. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, vinegar, dark fruit, cardboard, toffee and port wine. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Not in particularly good shape.

brokensail (9948) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Amber pour with a lot of yeast chunks in it. Very little head. Super oxidized aroma. Lots of sherry, some sweet sugar, a fair amount of cardboard, and a bit of booze, as well. A bunch of miscellaneous dark fruits in the background. The flavor is not much better. Lots of cardboard oxidation, some sherry, dark fruit, and a bit of chocolate. Some caramel sweetness is the best thing about it. Not very good at all.

thirdeye11 (5394) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2011
(33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear rich amber with soapy tan bubbles. Nose is very muted, brown sugar, not much else here. Taste is very dry, bread, brown sugar, a bit oxidized but works well here, just bland in general. Still itís well carbonated.

Kunstemaecker (27) - Steenkerke, BELGIUM - SEP 1, 2011
A beer with a rich aroma which, sadly enough, is countered by its sweet taste. Sweetness all around. Surprisingly long aftertaste. I was not aware of the style of beer I ordered so maybe that played a role in my opinion. It is now brewed by Boon, who knows how to make a mean lambic and geuze.

Old rating
Found an old rating, one of the first I ever wrote down back in í98. Think I didnít realise it was a Faro back then. The points and total score loose all meaning, especially as I used different scale/criteria back then. Just putting it here to preserve the memory and for the quirkiness of it.

Dark brown colour, slight brownish head. Aroma rather sweet, like honey, caramel, bit sour and fruity. Flavour rather (too) sweet, molasses, caramel, no hops bitterness. Quite one-dimensional.
(From 25cL bottle)

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Old bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a particle filled brown body with a tan head. Aroma is minty, raisins, light alcohol, flowers, brandy and wet leaves. Flavors of banana esters, nutty, woodsie and oxidized. Light acidity.

Mora2000 (5358) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a murky, yeasty brown color. Not very attractive. The aroma is brown sugar and caramel. The flavor is similar, with the addition of some light tartness and a little bit of funk. The brown sugar notes make the beer fairly sweet. Thin mouthfeel and low carbonation.

AmEricanbrew (5523) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 20, 2011
Courtesy of bu11zeye. Clear copper color/ thin ivory head. Sugary sweeet vanilla, caramel, oxidized aromas. medium bodied. Lightly sweet vanilla, caramel, complex spice flavors--good.
