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.

HopTsing (426) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2012
From the bottle poured a lovely reddish brew with a white head that deflated rapidly. Aromas of sour and malt. Wonderful flavors of fruit with a little sweet/sour thingy going on. Medium bodied, complex, and tasty.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2005
Pour is wonderful ruby color. Some cherry funkiness going on, but I know the sweet will dominate from what I expect in a faro. Slightly tart up front, lots of sweetness midway through and finishes that way.

MrW (420) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - APR 30, 2012
37,5cl bottle. A little sour aroma with some sweetness/candy as well. Brown/amber colour with quickly fading head. Tasted pleasantly sweet and less sour than I expected. Maybe a bit too sweet in the finish.

Braastad (420) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2013
Brown, semi clear with thin head. Sour aroma yeast and apples, also like something gone bad.. Fullbodied. Very carbonated and sour, overly sweet. Like applejuice past itís best before date. Not to my liking.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Has the color of whiskey and a small white head that does not last. Aroma is like a tame gueuze with subdued notes of sour funk and hay. Taste is sweeter than the aroma lets on, a bit cloying. Basically tastes like a sweet tart with a slightly sour finish. Sticky mouthfeel that coats the tongue, carbonation is lower than expected - slight fizz but not much. Alcohal is undetectable. Perhaps a hint of smoke in the aftertaste. Very smooth - no bitterness or aciditity. Drinkable and enjoyable, but a bit too sweet.

Pours an amber color with a nice white head and lots of carbonation. Sharp aroma of berries, maybe some pears. Very sugary sweet, malty body has a crisp, dry finish. Tasty.
