A: The pour is a clear amber color with an intense levely of carbonation but surprisingly little in terms of head. S: The nose is very musty with some odd notes of cork and bread. There is quite a bit of sugary sweetness as well, but I expected that. T: Wow, I was really surprised by the flavor of this. The intense sweetness was the first thing I noticed as this beer is very sugary. There’s also a hint of fruit and for some reason, a bile note on the back end. M: The body was medium with a very high level of carbonation and despite being sweetened, still has a certain level of dryness. D: This beer is really all over the place. I was not at all surprised by the intense sugary character, but the vomit flavor really seemed out of place.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Brownish amber color with a thick head. Appley aroma with just a hint of lambic leather. Sweet, but with a grapefruity bitterness. Refreshing lemony character, almost minty. Good faro.

Theis (15119) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2006
Bottle at home alone. Not sad or pathetic, just home alone !! Amber color, a nonlasting white head. Aroma: Honey, a little gooseberry, but mostly sweet. Taste: Very sweet, dry, not very sour. Reminds me of eating a bag of sour candy.

bhensonb (13980) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2008
Bottle at Theatre de Toone, Brussels. My first faro. Corked bottle. Dark hazy amber color with a head that ringed. Very mild aroma. Seems a bit soapy. Medium body with sharpish yet mild carbonation. It’s sweet and sour at the same time. Flavor is light sour, light oak, light raisin. It’s certainly balanced. Good drink.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 375mL bottle, pours amber orange with a small head. Aroma of candied sugar and subtle sourness. Flavour is very sweet candied sugar, quite cloying, coating the teeth with sugary residue. Not too bad.
