Old rating rerated 01.12.2014, 0,375l bottle sampled @ UNA sour beer tasting:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is very mild sour-ish grassy, stable, hay, wet grass, sugar, shed, oak, wet grain, sorrel. Taste is watery, hay, wet grass, minerals, weeds, sugar, wet grain, flowers. Little bitterness, watery mouthfeel. Boring.

AdamJackson (2870) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 16, 2014
Very dark brown with plum accents. 3 finger head. 375 new bottles in gueuze tumbler. Nose is sugary sweet with a lot tannic lemon hint. Very tart with nice balance. Love the sweetness bird a pretty darn good faro. Not hard to get so I’m glad I finally got to rate this one.

SinH4 (249) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Dark orange color with hardly any head. Very sweet aroma of candis sugar and malts. The same taste that reflects the candis sugar. Quite easy to drink, it’s just that the sugar overpowers the lambic character way too much and it’s not really sour.

mecafilo (101) - Perugia, ITALY - SEP 3, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2014 Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a clear red colour, small white head. Aroma is softly malty, notes of fruit (plums, grapes, little strawberry). Taste is medium to heavy sweet, softly bitter, softly sour, nice! Little to medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
’Artificial’ faro with yellowish white, thick moussy but not very stable head and darkish, copper-like amber colour, clear. Artificial sweetness in the nose, caramel, subdued lambic funkiness, tea, honey, dried leaves, sweet tobacco. Taste begins fresh and crisp, sweet caramel candy along with a lemony sourness, bit artificial, lambic coming through quite late and in a shy way, in the form of a light funky sourness and bitterishness. A bit more lambic-like than its congeners by Lindemans and Timmermans but from this brewery I had expected something more earthy and funky.

Ernesto987 (3910) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 21, 2014
ticking a faro, in a lambic basket in amsterdam. Usually giradins are very tart and the late additional sweetness really balanced this out, very nice and much more drinkable than regular giradin

mateuszk (231) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Botle. Red amber with small white head. Aroma sour with malty notes. In taste sourness with soy sauce, very bad. Low bitterness, medium body, high, lively carbonation. Maybe it’s a good beer but definitely not my bottle.
