Thanks Phaleslu for this tricky to come by style. First faro. Notes of fruit juice, earth, medicine, cranberry. Didn’t really care for this. Too much bandaidy sweetness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. 6 months past ‘best before’. Thanks to Enjoyit. Pours a hazy golden light brown with a white head. Nice lacing. Sweet, acidic aroma. A bit dusty. Flavour is quite sweet, tart and dusty. Notes of dried fruits behind the sweetness. Sweet, sugary, bitter finish with wine-like notes. My first faro, and the sweetness had me a bit surprised, but it wasn’t cloying or anything. Quite nice. 18-09-09.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Quality package, embossed corked bottle. Pop smells funky. Hypnotic pour. Full lambic experiemce, tart and farmy with candy sweetness. Perfect carbonation. Some very mild medicine in the background. Supreme enjoyment if you have a sweet tooth. An excellent example of a flemish brew. Does anybody know why they make any other style? Finish? What finsh, blast; its all gone. Need more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells like low tide and wet clay. Raw sugar. Shimmering bronze, small white head. Strongly sour for just the instant to realize the flavor and then it becomes an unapologetic onslaught of refined sugar. Tastes as if they completely saturated the solution. All sweet. Are all faros like this?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: The aroma smells like an old musty tent that been rolled up sitting in storage too long and some sweet yeastiness. It pours a transparent copper with a small soapy white head. The flavor is all sugary apple. Too sweet for me. Medium bodied with minimal carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, BB 7/7/2008. Poured medium reddish-orange with a loose cap of pinkish-white head.. some sediment suspended in there. The aroma was quite sweet with wet blanket and oaky overtones.. touches of lemon zest and green apple emerge with warmth. The flavor had a bit of Sweet Tart kick on the fruity opening with oak spicing it up a little.. green apple provided a dominant character for the rest of the drink.. not a whole lot of lambic-y funkage or assertiveness to note. Tart at first on the palate, then hugely sweet the rest of the way.. quite a bit like candy.. drank easy enough, but it seemed dumbed-down.
