dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Bottle pours deep red-amber with a khaki colored head. Aroma is sweet/tart with notes of caramel, candi sugar, wood, and a touch of funk. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of apple, cherry, and overripe peach. Overall body is moderate with fairly heavy sweetness. A little too sweet for my liking, but still pretty good nonetheless.

maledictum (755) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 4, 2011
25cl bottle at home. Pours attractive orange copper with a thin cream head. Nose is sweet and fruity, as is the flavor. Not too sweet though, with a delicate mouthfeel and decent dry finish.

bottle. Pours a clear red rust color with nice orange tinted head. Aroma not as sweet as expected, there are some vinous, funky tones here, soft balsamic, but also present is a candy like sweetness, which combined give a sensation of candied tart apples. Flavor is sweet / sour, starting with the sweet, a sugary candy like flavor, reminding me of hard candy, i.e. the outside candy part of M&Mís. Then on the finish there are light tart notes, leaving a soft, acidic puckering sensation in the mouth, with notes of cherry. Reminded me alot of liefmans cuvee brut. Overall I actually really enjoyed this, very nice.

redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Sweet and sour on the nose, mild acidic tartness with sugar notes. Pours a golden amber with a very thin white head. Tart upfront with a nice acidity followed by sugary sweetness. Not nearly as sweet as I thought it would be, there is some tartness and acidity. The finish starts out dry but a last bit of sweetness kicks in. Not bad compared to the other faro Iíve tried.

Kind of red and not much head. Aroma is fruity and the taste is like raspberries, but not as light. Itís sweet and the finish is more fruit flavor.

Pours a slightly hazy reddish orange color with a smallish bone white head that slowly dissipates to a cap. Smell is sweet with candied cherries and darker pitted fruits but with a sourish funk in there as well. Taste is sweet with dark fruits, hints of caramel, some mild gym socks. Sweet turns to a slight tartness about mid way through, then leaves a long lingering candy sweetness. Light to medium level of carbonation, sweet sticky mouthfeel, medium body. This one is pretty good although I thought it a little on the sweet side. If this were a bit funkier it would be better.

355 ml. bottle. shared with Gabe. Pours a thin off white head of short duration, over a clear, amber (SRM 10) body....nose is light funk, light grape, hint of raisin, slightly musty....taste is light sweet to start, becoming, lightly sour, bit of tartness, finishing with a musty sweetness, reminiscent of raisin...mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low. This meets its style and is, although sweet, is nicely complex. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Bottle 375ml. Great aromas, a bit too sweet for me. Aromas of grapes, apple, honey, and cheese. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, with a medium body, and high carbonation. Amber, bubbly, with a thin head.

So adding sugar to a sour beer turns it into a completely different monster. I hate to say it, but, with a sweet Lambic like Faro, the beverage ends up tasting remarkably like a wine cooler. Iím sure this declaration sounds like heresy to many a soul, but Lambics whose only trait is that theyíve been sweetened to soft drink levels are not my cup of tea. Smells great, looks decent, very thin mouthfeel, even for a sub 5% beer. Glad I can tick this style off the chart and move on.
