Thanks to JK for sharing. Pours a clearish bubbly dirty brown. Nice apricot sour nose with hints of some other sweetness. Very nice sour brown like flavor profile. Nice brown sugar sweetness with a nice sour bite.

Bottle to glass, dark red amber body with a thin white head. Nose is dominated by yeast and funk. Taste is slightly tart up front, rushes into a sweet body with some barn bitterness, and a musty finish. Too sweet.

pictoman (605) - 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.

Small bottle like the one pictured. Poured clear light brown with little head that retained. Light sweetness followed by sweet fruit notes. Very nice and enjoyable.

Faro to według mnie najlepszy pomysł na nietradycyjnego lambica. Bo jak może komuś nie smakować belgijskie piwo o smaku porto z wyraźnymi nutami kwasowości? Ok, może komuś może, ale ja się nie zaliczam do takiej grupy osůb. To piwo spełniło wszelkie oczekiwania, aż strach pomyśleć jak pyszne mogłoby być jakieś z wyższej půłki w tym stylu. Już zbieram kasę!

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.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is....odd i honestly canít think of how to describe it, i think its mostly the candi sugar , smells sweet. Taste is very sweet, but not cloying, it starts tart at first but then thr sweet almost cola like flavor comes in Good brew, but hard to describe.

UPDATED: APR 15, 2010 Bottle. A - Clear, and light tawny amber with some orange and red hues. Very thin light beige head with little retention and no lacing left over. S - Funky, tart and sour make up most of the smell. Also has a bit of a sweet smell in the background. Reminds me a bit of an Oud Bruin only sweeter, the combination of the sour/tart and the funk. T - Starts out with sour apple and lemon as well as tart cherry and raspberry taste. Then, quickly, the sweetness comes into play along with those taste. It goes from being a sour/tart beer to something more like a cider or a strong fruit juice. The sweetness also brings a bit more of a strawberry taste out. There is a slight funky background, but the yeast flavors are well covered. M - Medium to light body with low carbonation. Slight puckering with a mouthwatering finish. Also a bit sticky/coating in the mouth. D - Quite drinkable. Provides some tart and sour flavors, but they are very strong due to the sweetness. That sweetness and the coating mouthfeel might prevent drinkability, depending on your mood. Notes: Pretty good beer. A little too sweet, especially with the coating/sticky feel, for me. However if I were in the mood for something sour and tart but didnít want it to be too sour and tart, this would really fit the bill. Nice mouthwatering and refreshing cycle goes with this. Not a bad beer, and definitely worth trying, and has a niche it fills. Also may be a good way to start people off on sours, since the sugar makes the sour taste less powerful.

Deep rich honey colour. Sweet fermented aroma. I really really liked this beverage.
