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.

bhensonb (11533) - 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.

Christian (11282) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
Dark golden with a small head. Fresh aroma with lots of lemon, and perhaps some metal? Sweet flavour with some fruity acid underneath. Refreshing, but a little sweet for my tastes.

Pours amber with no head, but bubbles sticking to the glass. Smell is fruit. Taste is very sweet and fresh. No alcohol to speak of. Tastes cidery.
