355mL Bottle -- Pours rich amber with a white head. Wow really interesting beer. Sweet and tart fruits like apple, pear, and fig. The spontaneous yeast provides some great funky notes, even some blue cheese.

My first Faro! The Dan Journal #313. Tasted 10/24/09. 355ml bottle. Cork and cage. Filtered? Amber hue. Spotty off-white head. Aromas are tart and earthy and musty. Big nose with notes of apples and dark berries. Full bodied with a big palate. Assaulting the palate. Totally fruit driven. Apples and citrus. Sugary berries. Nice candy sugar flavor. Filling and more malt driven. This is new to me, but I prefer it over the fruited lambics. This sets the bar.

[250ml bottle from Westholme Stores, Goring] Amber with a slight white head and a slight fizz. Smells fresh and fruity. Fruit comes through at first before the sourness hits. Thought it was too sour for me at first, but then other flavours started to come through - wood, caramel and a lot of dryness. Rather enjoyed it by the end after the slightly scary start.

Light copper in colour, small white head and nice apple and honey aroma. Good balans between sweet and sour, very low in alc. a tasteful sweetend gueze with a holliday character.

jaghana (4655) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 7, 2009
Bottle 75cl. Amber beer with a big head. Smell is sour and fruit, the taste is verey sweet and pleasant, the sour taste is less, some apples flavour too, but quite bitter. Refreshing, neer to some cider flavour.

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2009
Bottle. The color was light brown, cloudy. The foam disappeared quickly. Initially I thought about the swedish soda called Pommac when I sniffed at the liquid. Fruit, sugar and yeast were otherwise found in the aroma. The taste was very sweet. A certain sourness was there to balance the sweetness, but on the whole it was a little too sweet. One glass was enough, however the beer was not undrinkable. In addition to sweetness and sugar, I felt some malt, fruit and yeast in the taste. Very highly carbonated. Sweet but still ok.

Davros (2335) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2009
Pours deep amber with a medium-sized head showing great persistence and leaving some lacing. Nice tangy, funky aroma with some goaty notes, light fruit (pears, peaches) and some acidic citrus. A hint of cheesy aroma, but faint enough so as to not detract too much from the overall experience. Very sweet taste, lots of sugary confectionery. Some goaty notes, very mild acidic character, and finishes with a just noticeable bitterness. The sweetness is a little too intense for me. Light body and carbonation. For a beer this sweet the carbonation really needs to be higher.

gorditoabd (629) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle with big thanks to MrBunn for making sure I got a hold of this style. Pours an odd little tannish yellow, with very minimal head. Aroma is of sour, fruity funk, and thatís from a small distance! Sour green apples, lemon peel, and cherries all assault my tongue on the first taste. Very sweet to balance the sour. Carbonation is middling, and mouthfeel is a bit on the weak side. Wouldnít drink a lot of this, but itís a nice change-up, and I appreciate the chance to try it. Thanks Bunn!

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle. Pour is a deep mahogany with minimal head. Aromas are quite sweet with some sourness. Flavours are very sweet with lots of candi sugar. Balanced somewhat by some labic sourness. Mouthfeel is spot on and overall whilst very sweet still a great beer.
