Koelschtrinker (10831) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Etwas süßer Antrunk, der Unterton ist minimal sauer. Der Geuze-Grundton ist anfänglich noch vorhanden, verschwimmt aber nach und nach. Im Mittelteil ist die Süße nun deutlich führend, dadurch wird das Faro etwas künstlicher. Dieser Eindruck verstärkt sich im Abgang deutlich, hier wird das Bier süßer, künstlicher und muffig. Test vom 8.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,10,9,10,9 - 9,05

Tmoney99 (10805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle with cork. Poured dark copper color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good barley wheat & yeast aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet fruity flavor with a solid fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - JUL 2, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice clear golden amber colour with a small but well lasting creamy beige head. Good sticky and creamy lacing. The aroma has sour vinegar with some sweetness and good tostiness. The flavour has a toasty sweetness along with a pleasant refreshing sourness, good fruitiness and a nice sherry touch in the sour and sweet finish.

Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Warm amber with a red hue and a creamy, but moderate head. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of candy sugar, caramel and a hint of nuts. The flavour is nicely balanced between acidity and a sweet/sour finish, and the candy sugar never becomes cloying or pushy. It’s a really nice faro.
