Bottle. 6 months past ‘best before’. Thanks to Enjoyit. Pours a hazy golden light brown with a white head. Nice lacing. Sweet, acidic aroma. A bit dusty. Flavour is quite sweet, tart and dusty. Notes of dried fruits behind the sweetness. Sweet, sugary, bitter finish with wine-like notes. My first faro, and the sweetness had me a bit surprised, but it wasn’t cloying or anything. Quite nice. 18-09-09.

cheap (4444) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Quality package, embossed corked bottle. Pop smells funky. Hypnotic pour. Full lambic experiemce, tart and farmy with candy sweetness. Perfect carbonation. Some very mild medicine in the background. Supreme enjoyment if you have a sweet tooth. An excellent example of a flemish brew. Does anybody know why they make any other style? Finish? What finsh, blast; its all gone. Need more.

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2009
Bottle. Poured amber with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, with caramel, nut, and wood notes. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Flavor is very sweet and slightly sour. Notes of fruit, wood and caramel. Loads of residual sugar. Sweet, sticky finish.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Smells like low tide and wet clay. Raw sugar. Shimmering bronze, small white head. Strongly sour for just the instant to realize the flavor and then it becomes an unapologetic onslaught of refined sugar. Tastes as if they completely saturated the solution. All sweet. Are all faros like this?

Pailhead (5397) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Bottle: The aroma smells like an old musty tent that been rolled up sitting in storage too long and some sweet yeastiness. It pours a transparent copper with a small soapy white head. The flavor is all sugary apple. Too sweet for me. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation.

Ughsmash (7280) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Bottled, BB 7/7/2008. Poured medium reddish-orange with a loose cap of pinkish-white head.. some sediment suspended in there. The aroma was quite sweet with wet blanket and oaky overtones.. touches of lemon zest and green apple emerge with warmth. The flavor had a bit of Sweet Tart kick on the fruity opening with oak spicing it up a little.. green apple provided a dominant character for the rest of the drink.. not a whole lot of lambic-y funkage or assertiveness to note. Tart at first on the palate, then hugely sweet the rest of the way.. quite a bit like candy.. drank easy enough, but it seemed dumbed-down.

finol (2349) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2009
250ml bottle. Pours brown red with just a hint of head. Smells of meat (!), vegitabels and some tartness. Fruity sweetness and some tartness.

Bottle. This one tastes like a sweet, sweet fruit beer without fruit. Big dissapointment!

EricE (1368) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Very hazy orange-brown pour with a thin white head. Acidic aroma with apple juice notes. Very very sweet syrupy candy flavor. Some tart apples. Bitter with a bit of alcohol on the finish. Very enjoyable. Would make a great desert drink.

floydian1 (1120) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 7, 2009
250ml bottle. A clear dark brown beer with a small but stable white head providing decent lacing. Nose is dominant candy sugar with a subtle geuze-type lemony astringency and background malts. The taste is sickly sweet candy sugar almost totally obscuring the lambic elements of the brew. There is just a faint touch of tartness in the finish to make you realise it is lambic beer but there is far too much artificial sweetening in my opinion. Disappointing.
