Drunk from 25cl bottle bought from Delhaize, Belgium. Overly sweet for my taste but enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours slightly translucent rose/brown with a thin off white head, very small, champagne type bubbles, very attractive. Nose is earthy, yeasty, cheese, leather, a little horsey. Rather sweet, chalky mouthfeel, there is a sourness towards the back but not overwhelming. I love it.

Small 25 cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Dirty bronze pour with a light head. Soda like, sweet sugary, some light bitterness and some very light tartness.

Schuim zakt snel, zalige Faro maar voor mij iets te zoet. Ruim pallet aan smaken, een uniek bier voor de liefhebber.

Kauge (348) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 30, 2014
25 cl bottle from Wine of Galilee in Tallinn (below 2). Pours a deep golden colour with lots of thin sediment floating, and an off-white head that drops fast to leave a small island of film, then disappears. Nose is sweeeet! And also sour. Surprisingly, I find it quite non-offending, considering it reminds me of cherry yoghurt and caramel candies which Im not a very big fan of. Behind that theres some familiar dry dustiness. Very thick palate with a cidery dry mouthfeel, carbonation mediumish or below. Sugary sweet taste with very ripe yellow autumn fruits, with considerable white wine notes. I expected it to have more acidity, but that seems to be buried in the sweetness. This was my first Faro - I quite liked it! Not sure if Id have survived a bigger bottle though!

Bottle. Clear red. Aroma is sweet strawberry and raspberry jelly. The taste follows and adds a hint of chocolate and more sugary sweetness. Very low carb with a thin mouthfeel. Overall, not my favorite style.

Bottle. Clear copper/red with no head. Aroma is cherry syrup, oak and a little mint. Taste follows pretty closely. Medium sticky mouthfeel. Weird but not terrible.

Piwo pieknie zapakowane, w aromacie za dużo końskiej derki, zwłaszcza po lekkim ogrzaniu się, smak - spora kwaśność octowo-winno-wiśniowa, lekka pestkowa goryczka i słodkość rodzynkowa (od kandyzowanego cukru). Niestety w smaku także wyczuwalna stajnia i za dużo octu winnego.

Awesome lambic. Smells straight up of cherries, tart and delicious. Tastes are more of the same. Sweet, tart and fruity. Everything I expect from this style and it does not disappoint. Medium bodied with a lingering tartness.
