OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle @ Bierbrasserie Cambrinus, Brugge. Big near-white head over a slightly hazed amber body. Sweet aroma of almond and marzipan. Sweet-flavored as well. Starts with candy-sugar and notes of canned sweet fruits. Ends up with acidic cherries and a refreshing sourness. A bit on the sweet side, but a still a good balance of sweet- and sourness though. Enjoyable.

This faro poured a light brown color from a 375ml bottle. Small to no head visible. Aroma is brown sugar ad citrus, very sweet. A medium to full bodied faro. Very sweet. Kind of honeyish with a touch of sour/tart fruit at the finish. Little to no carbonation as well. Sweetness seems to build as you progress. Lots of brown sugar abd honey. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Being my first time with a Faro, how do you rate it? Whatís it supposed to taste/smell like? I havenít really a clue, so I will just rate on whether or not I liked it. Aroma was sweet, plastic, boozy, fake fruit, and caramel. Flavor is a nice sour/sweet combo with a sugary finish (heavy on the sugary side). Not bad. Donít know how it compares to something better or worse, so for now I will just consider it average.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - MAY 3, 2007
Pretty mahogany with a medium off white head. Sour, acrid lemon, grape skins, canned pear, and fruit salad. Flavors take a back seat to nearly cloying candi sugar. Slight pear, cherry, doughy yeastiness. Some new oak, and other damp woody flavors. Traces of lemony sourness linger in the background in the sweet finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 1, 2007
bottle. Clear maple color with white bubbles on the surface. Sweet, bourbon nose with some fruit and oxydized notes. fruity and very sweet. Very dry but heavy finish.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2007
Bottle, thanks to after4ever. Pours a cloudy copper with an off-white head supported by streams of carbonation. Lightly sour cherry aroma. Soft, round mouthfeel with surprisingly light carbonation, given the look of my glass. Lightly sweet taste of oxidized apples and cherries. A touch of woody tartness in the finish.

330. Thanks, Maria! Wonderful stuff. Sweet and sour oxidized apple nose, plenty of cherry there as well. Hazy dark amber body with plenty of tan suds. Big mild cherry/apple attack that persists through the mid palate and the finish. Wonderful stuff. I could drink this now and then if it were local.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2007 Bottle at Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Dark brown-amber with a light head that fades. Aroma is woodsy - oak, slight lactic and vinegar acid presence, and some yeasty funkiness, as well as some fruity sweetness. Taste is nice: strong sour upfront fades to an oak and cherry middle that is quite sweet. Finishes with candy sweetness, bordering on cloying which is the only down point here. Nice high carbonation, quite drinkable. First faro; quite liked it.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 24, 2007
Bottle. Small white head. Light hazy amber color. Apple, vinegar, fruit, blackcurrant mixed in with a quit sweet malt profile. Medium bodied because of the moderated sweetness, somewhat sticky texture. Flavor was sweet with light acidic. Finish was sweet with a touch of acidic. Maybe a bit to sweet for a Lambic. Need more balancing acidic, still very drinkable.

Beer4000 (4768) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 19, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2007 250ml bottle. Lovely golden brown body with some minor sediments. The aroma is not to distinct but delicious, a bit acid with cellar notes but also some fruit. The flavor is sweet like candy sugar but also some notes of acidic. Thereís also some apple and orange peels in the flavor. Long lasting finish. Quite refreshing even as sweet it is. Re-rated as 750ml bottle@Kristiansand lambic festival. Use to appreciate this a lot, but this time I had the chance to compare with a bunch of other lambic based beers. This is still nice and refreshing, but the score has to be modified a bit down when comparing. My comments are unchanged. (Earlier rating: 8-4-7-3-15).
