popery (1863) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 13, 2016
The beer is a fairly dark amber color. Itís somewhat hazy but it just depends on how much sediment kicked up. Large head, slightly off white. Lots of lacing. The aroma is weird. Thereís lambic funk to it, but itís buried beneath odd and not very pleasant sweet flavors. Thereís a vegetal cooked onion note, some plastic and sickly thin caramel. Thereís also some metallic tone to it. Itís not really offensive but definitely off when taken together. Taste has moderate to medium sweetness. Itís thin, very light caramel. Some sour citrus tang, but itís well behind the sugar. Some body to it. A bit slick and sticky in the finish. Not my cup of tea.

ciocanelu (891) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 9, 2016
Clear, dark amber color with a bit of tan head. Aroma is mainly malty with a touch of caramel, ginger, pepper and some other spices. Taste starts with just a hair of tartness and continues malty with moderate sweetness. Finish has bread crust flavor, a bit of caramel and also a bit of bitterness. Body is light with medium carbonation. Overall itís quite nice table beer, tasty and easy to drink but a bit simple.

37cl bottle. Clear copper with an almost non-existent white head. Caramel, honey, some very subtle funk notes, sour grapes and vinegar, and a medicinal/metallic bitterness.

erickok (5031) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 9, 2016
Copper body, nice head. Sweet cake malts, caramel, berries. Soft sour sweet balance, drinkable actually, accessible. Quite woody. Ends sweeter again. One of if not the best faro Iíve had this far, but well that doesnít really says much... (375ml bottle from Dekoninck)
