3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2012 1) 08/07/2006. Grape juice sweetness tempered with a winey sourness, and lingering bitterness at the back of the tongue. Clear red with a tetering head that fizzes out quickly. The musty hum of infrequently swept cellars. A touch too sweet for me. 535312=2.8.
2) 18/01/2012. Underrated it- itís become a bit of a house beer since, and a favourite of the missus, my Mum and occasionally me. Sweet, admittedly, but enough dampness, sourness and lambic interest to get away with it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, 0.25ltr. Golden, with some sediments and no head. Light aroma with both sourness and sugar. Quite fruity, with apples most pronounced. A good deal of sugar in the flavor, with some acidic astringency and some orange-notes. Sweet, sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. Refreshing in the summer-heat, with green apples in the finish. (060704)

Offwhite big head of fine lace over deep copper tan body. Light, ripe raspberry aroma with some acidity. Taste is sweet soft raspberry taste. Maybe a bit too sweet to drink much of. Nice, smooth, and soft, though. (0.75l bottle.)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber/brown beer with a small head. Smells fruity, woody, dusty and candyish. Tastes sweet, fruity(cherry, strawberries), sourrish(vinegar, lactic acidity), some horseblanket, dark candy and woody. Finishes more sourrish, fruity, woody and long. Somewhat cloying mouthfeel and just enough co2. Rather good faro, with a distinct lambic background.

Maybe its just because I canít get Faro anywhere around my domicile that makes me enjoy this so much. All right. Itís NOT my favorite Faro, but this is a really nice drink. Slightly red. Fast-dissipating head. Notes of acidity and candi-sugar on the nose. Caramel notes from the candi-sugar and wonderful lambic tartness in the flavor. Alas, a little watery in the end and the palate could be bigger. Very sprtizy. Try one of these!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
My final beer style! Recieved in a trade with oh6gdx. Poured with a light copper body and a tight white head. The aroma was sweet with lemons apples and cherries. There was also some earthy honey. Hard to pick out barnyard character past the fruit. The taste was sweet honey with apples and a bit of leather in the finish. Better than I had expected.
