Well, if you like sugar this one’s for you. Medium bodied and a little syrupy with medium carbonation. Nice under a hot sun during summer time.

One off the worst beers I have ever tasted. Maby it was of, if not somebody should go to jail. I felt sick after tasting this one. Bought it in a bottle in France. I had too trow away most of it.

mediocre birra a cui č doveroso non dare una insufficienza ma che a me sinceramente dice poco. il paragone con una vera lambic come una cantillon č quasi improponibile.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2010
Shared by a generous RB at tpd975’s throwdown in December, 2009. Pours a yellow to golden color with thin head. Aroma is sweet and fragrant with notes of tart over-ripe fruit, light vinegar, honey, floral esters. Flavor is about the same. Light to medium body with a light syrupy mouthfeel and floral finish.

Mora2000 (6135) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a mixture of citrus, lemons, tart fruit and some sugar. The flavor is mainly lemony tartness with some sugar and light funk. This tastes about like liquid sweet tarts. Low carbonation and thin mouthfeel. Only the second faro I have had and this is better than the Chapeau, but still not anything too memorable.

illidurit (2279) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle from the free table at Woodshop 5.0. Pours light amber with a small white head. Aroma is candied fruits and rock candy. Tastes like candi sugar, pretty much. Lesser notes of lemons and tropical fruits, maybe some sauvignon blanc sweet grapey notes. Finish is gently tart and drying with a minor acidity. Too sweet for me but better than the abomination that is Chapeau Faro. A little syrupy in body as well.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Bottle thanks to Mar. Pours amber with white fizzy head. Aroma has a sweetness to it as well as a tart funkiness. Flavor is sweet, fruity, citrus, light tartness. Mouth feel is medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, I thought this was very tasty!

ilovedarkbeer (2685) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle thanks to Mar. Pours and orangey golden color with no head. Smells exactly like movie theatre vomit. That is buttered popcorn, vomit, and maybe some old rotting fruit. Taste is bad fruit soda. Mouthfeel is somewhat lively. Trainwreck.
