3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL bottle at Grote Dorst, pours a fairly clear copper golden with a medium off-white head. Aroma of candied sugar mixed with some dried funky fruits. Flavour is unlike any faro Iíve had, with a sweetened version of barnyard funk without actually differentiating the sugar -- secondary flavours of leather and cardboard. Completely unique -- the sugar doesnít seem to come out separately from the other flavours, but rather just modified the base gueuze. Bizarre stuff for me, but certainly enjoyable. Not what I was expecting. Good experience.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
37,5cl bottle at Bezoekerscentrum De Lambiek, Alsemberg during Tour de Geuze 2013. - Pleasantly mild and not over-sugared, delicately caramel-brown sugar-infused Faro which retains a large part of Girardin citrus funky lambiek/geuze character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Definitely not a style Iím overly found of but I try to have a few bottles stored away for non gueuze drinkers. This faro pours quite dark, It has a balanced flavour, not overly sweet and doesnít cling to our mouth like some faro beers Iíve sampled. If it is a Faro you are after this is a good example of the genre.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma consists of faint apple and raisin. It pours a most transparent amber with a minimal white ring for a head. The flavor starts with some light apple...somewhat cider-ish. The finish has some light sweet raisin with a hint of Belgian yeast. Itís light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a brown tinted amber with medium head/lacing. Aromas of apple crisp, berries, vinegar funk, and lots of sugar malts. Taste is much of the same with alot of sweet and sour notes coming through. This was interesting but Iíll stick to regular lambics. Just too cloying.
