Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Into a flute glass. Clear, peach color body. Finger of head lasted a few seconds. It smells like barnyard vinegar cherry. Interesting if nothing else. A slight vinegar taste and sweet candy. It’s like beer candy. Higher carbonation and light body. It’s a sweet, light, high carbonated beer. The sparkling wine of beer. Worth trying at least once.

Shiny orange amber. Extremely sweet caramel flavor. Paired with intense sour and horsey flavors. Very complex.

My first faro. Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop downtown. Pours a pretty deep amber with a sizable beige head. Smells of a black tea with added fruit flavor, sweetened. Perhaps blackberry. Taste is also similar to a sweetened black tea. Very sweet with a bitter bite underneath, lemon juice inside the black-blackberry tea with some sugary notes. Tasty.

butelka 0.75, warka do 7-12-2016. bursztynowe, opalizujace, z poczatkowo wysoka piana, szybko opadajaca. aromaty - tu zaskoczenie - dominuje funky... jest tez owocowosc jasna taka (morele?), winne jakies nutki. w ustach szmapano-winno-kwaskowato-slodkie. naadal owoce i dzikosc. przyznam sie, ze z jednej strony jestem zaskoczony sila tej dzikosci, a z drugiej szkoda tego poslodzenia. wysoko wysycone. ma swoj ewidentny urok

markducommun (619) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Darker golden orange, slight opacity, minimal white head; dissipates quickly. Very sweet sugary nose, hint of bright cherry, slight funk, slight tartness. Again, very sweet, but significantly more sour than the nose would suggest. Quite oily, medium body, really coats the palate and just stays. Good, could be great after a few years in the cellar.

Hanuta06 (422) - Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Serving: from bottle purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: moderate yeast, citrus, floral aroma. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white, initial head with no lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, light-orange body. Taste: lightly sour/sweet initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: light body, oily texture and lively carbonation. Overall: soda-like and easy to drink.

phfyysik (169) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2016
Pours nice reddish colour. Sugar comes up in aroma, as well as sourness and some juice notes. In taste sour notes are noticeable, but the taste of brown sugar suppresses down the regular lambic style taste. Not bad, but can be better.

josanguapo (669) - SPAIN - JAN 13, 2016
From Alcampo. In Teku glass. Reading CPPHTP10 Ch11. Adding sugar makes it less disgusting than a pure lambic but doesnt make it good either. At least I could finish it.

lokis333 (220) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JAN 2, 2016
Clear molten wax/amber color with small coffee froth foam. Aromas are very fruity, sugary and sweet. Sour/sweet red berries dominate the aromas and it is quite complex I would say. Palate, Medium body, dry and sticky texture coating the mouth with dry sweet finish that does not last for too long although it is highly carbonated. Taste is sweet, sour with a dry edge to it and tastes like dry.sweet cider and fermented carbonated berries. Overall interesting, unusual beer, very sweet and dry. Worth a try.
