3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
250ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) BB 2010-11, Drunk 2012-09
Very pleasant sweet aroma, like the ’golden nuggets’ breakfast cereal i had when I was a kid (that probably means there’s some butterscotch). Clear bold rich orange, brief head. Full sweet palate, gentle carbonation. Sweat breakfast-cerealy honey-covered wheat-flake taste. Rather nice. Finish is mostly the sweetness, and to be honest, I shouldn’t give this 4, but it was very nice in the mouth, so I have to. Overall, a remarkably drinkable modern faro, better than some of the more traditional ones I’ve had, to be honest. However, that’s because I think faro is intrinsically a modern sweet thing, not a traditional sour thing. If you want to stick sugars into your old lambics, then do them via the medium of young lambic, and give me a geueze. If, however, you want a luscious sweet drink, then make one of these.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Champanes,
this ale had a clear light to medium amber (red-brown) pour and made a small white and faint off-white head that receded to a ring and large island of a cover,
it had aromas that were tart and sour fruit that resembled apple, grape and rhubarb, berry with faint cherry, and a faint sweetness in the background, some earth funk, aged and cellar notes,
the flavors were sour and tart fruit (sour grape and rhubarb) and berry with a lot of sugar sweetness, some wood, very little malt,
the finish had some sour and tartness with sugary sweetness that sort of kept the drink on the sweet side,
this beer was much sweeter than I expected,
the mouth feel was light with average carbonation,
it was sweet and too sweet to be a thirst quencher on a hot day.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very Amber sugary color. The smell is nicely sourish and smells like brett. The taste is lightly sourish and quite sweet. I still don’t like the waste of perfectly good lambic just to add sugar, but I still like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange color with small head. Aroma is lambic funk, apple, berries. Taste is sweet-sour, apples and berries, some caramel, but the Lambic character is still present. An excellent Faro, more of a fruit sweetness than candied sugar, and the tartness is still very present. Still quite sugary. Carbonation is soft. Lecker!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Color ambar brillante, espuma de un par de dedos. Aroma desagradable, aunque a veces recuerda a mortadela (!)... En boca mezcla el sabor de las lambic muy frutal con un dulzor a caramelo, que da un conjunto agridulce, extraño. Supongo que gustará a mucha gente. No es mi caso.
