Poured a light hazy amber color. The aroma had a light funk to it and a sweet caramel malt. The aroma matched the flavor. Sweet and tart mix in the flavor.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 18, 2008
Bottled 25cl. 4.2 ABV. It pours a clear caramel colored beer with a small off white head. The nose is mainly of wood and candy accompanied by a pleasant sourness. The taste is sweet, sour with wood and candy showing up. Nice lacing. Deeply pleasant. A hint of incense. Wonderful dry finish with candy, yeast and wood appearing.

375ml bottle at a cafe in Mornac, France 12/6/08. Chestnut coloured with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma of dark sugar and preserved sweet. Flavour had some dessert wine sweetness with a hint of lambic tartness. Much better than the other bottled faros I have tried.

bhensonb (10934) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle at Theatre de Toone, Brussels. My first faro. Corked bottle. Dark hazy amber color with a head that ringed. Very mild aroma. Seems a bit soapy. Medium body with sharpish yet mild carbonation. Itís sweet and sour at the same time. Flavor is light sour, light oak, light raisin. Itís certainly balanced. Good drink.

Bottle. Looks nice. Pours amber purple color. Beer is loaded with sugar, its every where, some apple, maybe a touch of malt but man this is to sweet.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a bubbly head that quickly subsides. Very sweet on the tongue with sour apple and cherry flavours (also in the aroma). Smooth with a slight carbonation, itís incredibly easy to drink. Nice beer.

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 13, 2008
(0,375 bottle, 4% ABV) Hazy and amber color with lots of bubbles. Thin and thick white, lacy head. Much sour apple and cherry in aroma. Fruity and sweet flavor: cherries etc. Very sweet and sugary taste. Medium-bodied, a bit carbonated palate. A bit mild but refreshing, very easily drikable and quite enjoyable beer.

Bottle, shared by dickinsonbeer. Amber pour. Aroma is sweet white sugar over a lightly sour beer. Same flavor, sweet white sugar up front with tart fruit behind it. Interesting.
