Muddy brown, copper color. Minimal frothy head. Sweet candy sugar aroma with wild yeast character and cherry notes. Fruity flavor with sweet plum, tart cherry and apple notes. Sour cider aftertaste. Light body, fizzy carbonation, acid finish. Refreshing.

Pours crystal clear brown with medium head with nice lacing. Fresh lovely aroma but the sweetness in the falvor surprised me a bit, otherwise the flavor is refreshingly sour and tart as it should. A nice brew though a bit too sweet, for a 25 cl bottle with 4,2 abv I could have handled some less sweetness in it. (Strange my bottle says 4,2 abv while it says 4,75 abv here?)

Bontus (625) - Flanders, BELGIUM - FEB 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours golden copperish with a very dense head. Lambic aroma’s, but more to say of the flavors who remain good in balance with no overdose of kandi sugar imo.

bluevegie (3049) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2009
Appearance is quite good, cherry red body with lasting and lacing white head. Expected sugar in the taste but not overly so, balances out the sourness quite well, though cant find too many other flavours. A bit easier to drink than other faros I have tried.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2009
One of the extras sampled at the Sam Smith tasting at Blacklick Wine and Spirits on 2.6.09. Pours a semi-opaque amber with a thin white head. Aroma of vinegar, wild yeast and tart fruit. Flavor is WHOA, surprisingly sweet. Still, there is some fruity tartness of apple and berries. Not bad overall.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle at Christophe’s house in Tervuren. Copper body, tan head. Nose of fruit and sour apples. Sweet and fruity taste, including apples. Way too sour for me but appreciate the work put into it.

Brandman (2053) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2009
250ml bottle. Fruity and sweet aroma, little sourness, too. White head, dark cloudy copper colour. Taste is very fruity and sweet, perhaps too sweet. Palate is round, all over mouth -like.

375ml via trade a ways back. Shared with dalekliz. Pours dark cloudy brown with a tan head. Nose is funky and very sugary. Taste is sweet and sugary and slightly tart. Faros are always so strange, i look forward to eventually having one on tap.
