Presentation: It was poured from a green capped and corked 355ml bottle into a Lindemans fluted glass. The label has a description of the beer but there is no freshness date or abv%. Appearance: Itís dark in the glass with a bronzy amber colored body held up to light. It has good clarity and some visible carbonation. A good two finger head caps of the beer. Itís off white in color and tightly packed. On the glass it leaves some spotty lace. Smell: There are notes of white bread, raw grain and wheat malt with a hint of sweetened whiskey or sweet brandy. Taste/Palate: It is candy sweet up front with notes of white bread, sweet caramel, and nougat. Some tangy wheat and yeast tartness just tries to sneak in as some fruit notes like sweet apple peach and pear lead into a stick sweet finish. The palate is medium bodied, smooth and slick. On the lips it feels sticky. Notes: Iím not quite sure what to think of this beer. My palate is confused, is it a tart beer trying to be sweet or a sweet beer trying to be tart/sour. It is interesting if nothing else.

An off-white head (that stayed present for a while) and a caramel red body. The aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sugar-sweet without being overwhelming, and the yeast, malt, and spices are present too, almost giving the flavor a dessert bread-like quality. I donít normally care for lambics, but this is one I could drink on occasion. Very interesting.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 Pours a hazy cloudy golden color with a quickly diminishing head. Carries a nice sweet fruitiness in the aroma, mostly of cherries. Definitely a bit tart in the nose. Very sweet on the palate with apple being the most dominate flavor. The finish is short and sweet.

Naka (708) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Pours clear amber color with a very fizzy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with some fruity, almost raisin-y funk. As I anticipated, the funk is pretty mild compared to a lot of lambics. Flavor is malty with a sort of apply cider character to it. A little sour bite, but pretty mild. A slight spritz to it. Has an interesting finish to it. Not necessarily dry, but something like it? A very faint bitterness too. Iím actually pleasantly surprised, as I havenít been a huge fan of a lot of the Faros Iíve tried.

Just to sort out some beers I have had, but didnít rate. Bottle at home, It was an interesting beer, strange sweet/sourness, it was drinkable but i had a hard time drinking the complete bottle.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2004
Of all the geuze I have tasted, this is by far the best. Itís probably because they add sugar to the beer before fermentation. Geuze and Lambics tend to be very bitter, but this one is surprisingly well-balanced and pleasantly fizzy. Not much head, amber colour, obvious sweet taste and aftertaste.

pictoman (700) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear, orangey-brown with minimal off-white head, very tiny amount of sediment. Aroma slightly sour, some cherry and mild funk, but also a sweet maltiness. Taste has some of the mild sour characteristics of a typical lambic, but also a fair amount of sweetness (could give this to some of my friends who may not be able to take a full sour yet). Finish quite dry, but very bland. Medium-light body, slight oily texture.

Bottle. Nice reddish amber color with white head. Aroma is sour with fruits, blackcurrant? Taste is sour with some sweetness some fruits hints of malts. Aftertaste is sour with sweetness and very low bitterness. Nice but a little bit to sweet.
