Silphium (3191) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle, purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, AK. Murky sediment-laden orange-brown body, thin off-white ring of carbonation. Rindy nose, with brie cheese, horse blanket, and sawdust, funky and tart, with modest appleskin. Dusty body but distinctly sweetened; tastes like apple juice with a bit of medicinal funk. Soft and flabby, barely sour.

Barnyardy tart lemon tea aromas. Candy sugar blasts the palate initially which is followed iced tea with a touch of lemon. Reminds me of sweet tea with lemon which I had in Alabama.

JDBaker11058 (1935) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Appearance: rusty brown, small fizzy off-pink head, minimal lacing. Aroma: malt, sweet-tart candies, hint of maraschino syrup. Taste: a bit of fruit (raspberry, cherry, sour apple?), but mainly a kind of sweet malt character over a puckering sour tang with a bit of almost saison-like funk. Finish: dry yet sticky, malty and puckeringly tart with a nice sweet balance. Notes: A sweet and sour sauce of a beer. I know Faros are generally light on fruit, but there was some definite fruit characteristics here; maybe from the wild yeast? Either way, I really dug it in a weird kind of way. Very sweet, but also very sour/tart, with a great level of carbonation to keep it quaffable. Rating 4 for now, but I’ll revisit with a jaundiced and suspicious eye. Did I REALLY like this as much as I thought I did?

weihenweizen (3130) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2012 Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear amber with big off-white head that dissapates quickly. Medium lacing, medium body, slightly sticky texture, and fruity aroma. Taste is sweet fruit (mostly berry) to start, dark candy sugar, and slightly tart fruit in the finish.

mattphilips (801) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 17, 2011
Csak a jó Sör, Budapest. Ködös, vörösesbarna színe van, fehér habja gyorsan eltűnik, kicsit olyan pezsgős a megjelenése. Illata almás, de inkább almaboros, igencsak cukros, és már egy cider jutna eszembe, de a maláta egyértelmű aromája szintén jelen van. Íze szintén almaboros (azért egy jobbféle), malátás, illetve karamellás. Egyszerre fanyar és cukrosan édes, ami nekem nem feküdt túlzottan, de azért nem rossz.

Bottle. Clear nut brown body, with a small white head. Aroma:taste of leather, farmyard, wood, sour cherries, acid, with a sweet body. Full bodied. Leaves a "furry" fealing in you mouth at the end of the beer.

I didn’t expect the sweetness, noting that more than the sourness behind it. Color was nice, a good red/brown, and the palate was like a bizarre lemonade. A good intro lambic.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Pours ruby red from bottle with an inch of light brown head that rapidly disapates. Lots of carbonation on the tongue. The nose is pungent with an undertone of sweetness. On the tongue theres some sourness but also a touch of sugar as well. This one lingers for a long time. Nice change of pace from the fruit lambics.

LiteWait (266) - New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Alston, MA. Clear yellow with thin white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is also sweet but with a hint of corn and cough syrup. Not bad but wouldn’t drink again. Shared with AirForceHops.

AirForceHops (6180) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Draft @ Sunset Grill and Tap, Alston, MA. Served in a flute. Poured a deep amber-red, almost brown with head that had good retention and nice lace. Slightly carbonated. Aroma was a mix of wild yeast, esters and sugar. Initial flavor was slightly tart with some sweetness. Sweetness seemed to come though much more as it got room temperature. Lots of a berry flavor. I like it and will seek out a few more of this style since this was my 1 st.
