Pours clear dark amber. Off-white minimal head. Smell is sour and fruity. Taste is a tad sour with enough sweet to round it off. Hints of apple. I love this one. Nice beer for sunny days.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared by acrdz/mj on 7/17/08: Pours a transparent golden bronze with a thin ring of off-white head. Sweet pale wheaty and semi-tart fruity nose has a touch of biscuity yeast and sugary apples. Starts sugary sweet and fizzy with some earthy light tartness and juicy apple flavor before a sweettart finish. Interesting, but too sweet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured somewhere between brown and red with lots of carbonation and a fizzy white head. The aroma is slightly tart with a touch of yeast and plenty of sugars. The flavor is a bit tart that is quickly trampled by sugars. Overly sweet. Failed to find balance. Mouthfeel is thin and the sugars linger in your mouth long after the sip is gone.

Colour of dark honey. Aroma of apples, musty lambic overtone. Taste is slightly sour balanced by candy sweetness, citrus flavour also present. Very nice light carbonation. Tasty one.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[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.
