Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: Hazy copper, small off white head. Aroma: Slightly sour, good fruitiness, caramel & a little tart. Flavour: Nice apple/fruit flavour at first, quite sweet and candy like, some good maltiness there too with a long sweet finish.†

250ml bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Slightly hazy brownish-amber with an average frothy off-white diminishing head. Aroma of raisin, brown sugar, lemon juice and yeast - fairly sweet and fruity, but appealing. Taste is sweeter, a bit of vinegar tartness, almost like raisin and apple jack extra sour. Syrupy and light, nice acidity and carbonation, quick finish, fruity tart aftertaste. Nice one!!

An off-white head (that stayed present for a while) and a caramel red body. The aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sugar-sweet without being overwhelming, and the yeast, malt, and spices are present too, almost giving the flavor a dessert bread-like quality. I donít normally care for lambics, but this is one I could drink on occasion. Very interesting.

Small bottle like the one pictured. Poured clear light brown with little head that retained. Light sweetness followed by sweet fruit notes. Very nice and enjoyable.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
355ml bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a clear amber, high carbonation wipes out the head entirely right after the pour. Aroma is slightly reminiscent of ginger beer mixed with cider. Taste is both sweet and tart, a baked apple pie without the cinnamon quality. Slight spice note though hard to identify. Leaves a slight stickiness on the tongue in the finish. Tasty.

GTAEgeek (1929) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper color with a thin tan head. The aroma is apple juice, oranges, ginger ale, and a little biscuity yeast. The flavor is very sweet, tart, with just a slightly sour finish. The body is light to medium. The palate is sticky, and just a little astringent. Medium carbonation. Very little aftertaste. Overall, this is a smooth drinking, well balanced, and delicious beer.

I had pulled this one off the shelf a few weeks ago, removed the cap only to discover that I didnít have a corkscrew. So I put it back on the shelf. Today I got the corkscrew out of the moving box and grabbed the Faro off the shelf. To my horror I discover that the cork had worked its way out at some point in the past few weeks! But, I figured that this is a wild ale anyways, so what the heck. Pours a deep mahogany with light carbonation and a small fizzy head (!!!) Aroma is granny smith apples, mildly sour, other light fruits, and a touch of funk. Flavor is quite sugary, with a slightly sour/tart finish. Very sweet and appley, but still, very good!

Skunky up front, then turns into a fruity aroma. The appearance is medium amber and clear. The flavor is mildly sour, with apple juice and raspberry in there. Good, very different from most other beers and ales, but the green bottle detracted from the score, would have been much better in a brown bottle.

Pours dark and clear golden with a low head. Aroma is apples. Flavor is sweet and sour apples with a hint of vinegar. Very interesting.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Pours an amber/lt. Ruby color with a medium lt. Tan head...nice retention. Aroma hints of sour cherries and leather with underlying sweet candy sugar and funk. Flavor is much sweeter than the aroma suggests...dominated by light candy sugar but not so sweet that its sticky...slight sour notes, hint of caramel and funk. Mouthfeel is light with a sweet and sour finish that drys out into mild funk. I like it!
