35.5 cl bottle thanks to Dean. Poured a decent looking clear brown thinner bodied with a smaller slightly off white head. Aroma is sugary sweet up front then some barnyard funk along with zest. Flavor of sweet sugars, low key balsamic vinegar, slight yeast, breads, more sweetness and a hint of funk. Not bad and actually although super sweet it seems watered down somewhat.

Pours a murky amber. Aroma is a little stinky cheese. Flavor is smooth and malty. A little more body than I was expecting. Decent sweetness and almost fruity on its own. On the front of the palate you get a touch of tanginess. That goes into the thick mouth coating sweetness. My first foray into this style. I was expecting a little more sourness but was pleasantly surprised by the malty full bodied aspects.

My "first" faro, im trying it side-by-side with chapeau. 12.7 oz capped and corked green bottle. Iím trying these two both the same temp, same bottle type, same glass, so i hope to find which one is better. The Chapeau has this one beat in looks, just slightly, the actual beer here looks better it is a clear brownish red, they head is a bit weaker though. Take the funk of the chapeau and throw it out the window with this one, I like this one better too. It is slightly tart smelling with a nice lemon smell to it, very much like a lighter version of the gueuze, there is some barnyard but it lingers waaay, waay in the background. This one is much crisper than the other, it is overly sweet, but Iím assuming that the sweetness is somewhat par for the course. The lambic flavors are there, but simply with a dose of straight up sugar. Iíd say colder is better to enjoy this one, it isnít bad, but it is really really sweet.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2012 Courtesy of Mane Liquor 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.

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