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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Cloudy amber with small white head, poor retention. Aroma of apple vinegar and spices, lemons, yeast, herbs. Taste of a clear lambic, no extremes, tons of sugar, yeast, old hops, apples. Interesting, but too sweet.

Pours amber with a beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity and isn’t very big. Taste has some sweet brown sugars, fruits, apples and some ginger. Palate is very think, but sticks to the taste buds. Overall too sweet for my taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head with good retention. Clear reddish dark golden colour. Aroma is sweet cider, apple and caramel. Taste is mostly fruity, both sweet and acid with very slight sour hints. High carbonation and medium body. Nice but quite artificial flavour, in my opinion.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,15l fles Uitgeschonken amber van kleur. Geur is zoet met appelsap. Smaak is vreemd zoet zuur, als appelsap die te oud Is. Daarna komt er een lichte kots smaak. Nee niet aan mij besteed.

37,5 Sharp lambic aroma. Some oak barrel and lemon acid. Pours clear light ruby red with thin head. Sweet, sugary, acodic, yeasty and bitter at the same time. Totally new combo. Good desert beer. Sour middle and soft sour finish. Numbing. Beautiful lambic. Some apple vinegar in the last sips. BBE 1/7/2016

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The beer has a nice brown color with a red tint. The color is a bit pale though. There is hardly any foam. The smell (and taste) have been described by my sister as the smell of feces in a zoo. A bitter penetrant aroma. Nasty. The taste is bad too. A unpleasant bitter sweet and sour taste composition. Disappointing, I had high expectations.
