voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Cloudy red/copper with a large frothy head. Aroma is quite sour, compost, and very sweet candy. The flavour is equally candy sweet/acid sour with some nice dark fruit and nut flavours too. Sour fruity finish and aftertaste.

A great beer, even though I prefer my lambics sour. Full of raspberries on the nose and flavour.

KoNrRiI (765) - Ňrhus, DENMARK - APR 17, 2015
0.375 bottle. Hazy, dark amber color and a small, white head. Sweet and sour fruity aroma with hints of candy and some unfortunate metal. Taste is really sweet: candy, fruits, honey, sugar, sour fruits as well. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is also sweet and very fruity. Overall this is my first faro, and although I do not have a developed taste for it I certainly enjoyed this one.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2009
375ml bottle. Pours a deep golden/copper color, much darker than most Geuezes. A fluffy substantial head is formed and has good retention. Aroma shows floral and spicy elements, not much traditional funk though some esters are noticeable underneath. Candy, skittles, slight earthiness and pepper. Flavor is sweet and very candy like. Sugar is very noticeable and tastes more like sugar than sweet beer. This is very different. Lots of sweet candy flavor which is not something Iím used to. People who donít like beer would be all over this. I prefer more traditional lambics. At least I finally got to try this style.

lachesis (757) - St Idesbald, BELGIUM - MAY 14, 2005
Light cloudy amber-orange color with small creamy ivory colored head. Nice fruity aroma with touches of raspberries, dried apricots, appletart, cider and brown sugar, also a woody unthertone. The taste is smooth and has a good balance. The taste is sweet and fruity and the acidity is well integrated. Again raspberrie in the taste, hints of sour apple, crumblecake, sweet rubarbe jam, some earthy tones and some wood. A fine faro with a refreshing caracter.

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.

Bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Somewhat sweeter than most lambocs. Plenty of bitterness and an arid mouth feel. My wife loved it!
