2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
