Blackfriers. Aroma is sweet vinigar, a sweet and sourness comes across, hints of wood and buckets of dark tart fruit, however way to sweet. Taste is a similar fruity beast, hints of port, woodness in the finisg and age, infact this tastes like the kulminator, like the smell of the kulminator when your having a old loteling brune or something, problem is its too dam sweet. This is an excellent beer its got more hints of a flemish sour ale than a lambic, but if it was half the sweetness this would infact be rated over a 4 for me.

Chestnut brown, thin light tan head. Nose is meaty malt, lemon, brown sugar, roast ham. Something odd is going on here. Flavor is that same hammy malt, bitter lemon pith, caramel. Bittersweet finish. This is a trainwreck.

nestore (2) - ITALY - JUN 21, 2007 does not count
Beverina ma forse troppo dolce per i miei gusti, non ricorda i lambic se non in una lieve sfumatora dellíaroma. appena appena sufficente.

GilBier (75) - Dendermonde, BELGIUM - JUN 20, 2007
Orange brass color with small white head. Aroma is ripe apple, rubarbe, musty honey, and some malt accents too. Taste is refreshing, it keep a nice balans between honeyed sweetness, oxidized apples, sour stonefruits candi sugar and little drop of lambic. A nice refreshing summer beer.

Enjoyit (3086) - Vadum, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2007
Cobber of color with a light white head. An aroma which has some sour and sweet notes. Hints of bitter apples. A fresh flavor with notes of sweets, caramel and some sour notes.

MrRomero (1972) - Nolanville, USA - JUN 6, 2007
375ml bottle: poured clear copper with a small beige head. More carbonation than I thought it would have. Mild cognac aroma with a touch of walnuts. Flavor is somewhat sweet at first followed by a mild sour finish. Just a smidge of cherries. We all know itís going to be sweet so just enjoy it for what it is. A nice drink.

BrockLanders (770) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Tough aroma on this one.....not something Iím enjoying....sweetish yet sour notes abound. A dark amber color...minimal head. Flavor is initially sweet..sugary...sourness comes in late and hard. Meets the style requirements..just not a very enjoyable drink.

OleR (4609) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle @ Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brugge. Big near-white head over a slightly hazed amber body. Sweet aroma of almond and marzipan. Sweet-flavored as well. Starts with candy-sugar and notes of canned sweet fruits. Ends up with acidic cherries and a refreshing sourness. A bit on the sweet side, but a still a good balance of sweet- and sourness though. Enjoyable.

This faro poured a light brown color from a 375ml bottle. Small to no head visible. Aroma is brown sugar ad citrus, very sweet. A medium to full bodied faro. Very sweet. Kind of honeyish with a touch of sour/tart fruit at the finish. Little to no carbonation as well. Sweetness seems to build as you progress. Lots of brown sugar abd honey. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Being my first time with a Faro, how do you rate it? Whatís it supposed to taste/smell like? I havenít really a clue, so I will just rate on whether or not I liked it. Aroma was sweet, plastic, boozy, fake fruit, and caramel. Flavor is a nice sour/sweet combo with a sugary finish (heavy on the sugary side). Not bad. Donít know how it compares to something better or worse, so for now I will just consider it average.
