3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured reddish amber and transparent with very little head. Aroma is very subtle to me, perhaps a bit of dark cherry and some yeast. Flavor is quite nice...definitely sweet but balanced very well by sour. No hops to speak of. Finish is clean and leaves a bit of pucker sourness on the tongue. Excellent.

Odd colour, a wild reddy amber with a small beige head. Big blend of sweet and sour. Lots of candy notes. Cherries, oak. Very dry finish. Odd but good brew

Amber colour with no head. Very sweet though not cloyingly, slight sourness, cherries, amaretto liqueur, pear juice concentrate and a very slight funkiness. Great to enjoy in small amounts with a dessert or just on itís own.

Enjoyable faro beer. As sweet as one might expect from a liquid flavoured with candy sugar.

A funky brownish red pour with a one finger odd tan head. The nose is sweet dark cherries with a bit of funk from wild yeast. The flavor is also quite sweet and is interesting. It reminds me of a sweet version of a sour. Those cherries, malt, wood. An odd dry bitter finish.

Sweet and sour blend. Fruit, lemonade, rhubarb finish. A tad too sweet. Little or no carbonation.

Amber in the glass. Aroma smells of sweet malt, fruit, wood, and a trace of a lambic funkiness. Pretty sweet on the palate but does have a nice acidic twang to cut some of the sweetness on the finish. I could see this being a good option for people who like gueuze but want something sweeter and less sour.

Gold to murky straw color pour, decent carbonation, sprtizy. The aroma was horse blankets, grapes, lemons, apples. The flavor followed along with earth and dough elements, sweet sugars assertively present, finishing with a light sour touch, but perhaps too sweet (Lindemanís, nah?). The mouthfeel was moderate in body and carbonation. Not bad, not all that, though. At 2 faros, guess that makes me a pro.

Deep golden color, virtually no head. Strong aroma of vinegar. The flavor wasnít nearly as funky/horseblanketty as other lambics Iíve had. Really sweet and the sugary aspect was dominant. Enough vinegary sourness to keep it from being cloying. My first faro lambic...not bad.

Pours a dark gold/brown with minimal fine foam. Smells sweet and slightly sour. Tastes very sweet and lightly sour of cherries and tangerines. Would pair well with fruit ice cream/ice and Belgian waffles.
