bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2007
On tap @ Mort Subite. Hazy amber coloured. Slightly sour with notes of spices and wood. Reminds me a little of a flemish sour ale - a bit too sweet.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2007
A Mes rate: Draught at The Brewery during the Toer de Geuze. Typical translucent amber coloured Faro with very little head. Expected sweet aroma and flavour with more fruity character than usual and a delicate sour note. Pleasant but never outstanding. A little swift in the finish.

matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2007
Draught at Mort Subite in Brussels

Pours a golden body and a fluffy cap of froth. The aroma is best described as a sweetened, less sour, with hints of honey and lemon zest, traditional Lambic. Exceptionally nice to drink; a beginners lambic, as some of the blue-cheese, funkiness of traditional Lambic shines through. The palate was spritzy and finished with a dry sweet-sourness.
Really a was nice beer!

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught @ A La Mort Subite, Brussels. Like many others here, this was my first faro. Dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose of cherry and balsamic vinegar. Sour but subtle sweet relish taste with fruity hints. Flat with an orange iced tea finish. Yum!

JK (4283) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Draught at Mort Subite, Brusels. My first faro. Light brown color and low carbonation with almost no head. Aroma is lightly sour. Flavor is sweet champagne with a sour lambic finish. Like nothing I have had before and very nice and refreshing.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2007
Draught at La Mort Subite, Brussel. Orange brown coloured. Fruity aroma with acidic notes and some caramel. Sweet and sour fruit flavour with some refreshing acidity in the finish.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2006
on tap at mort subite in downtown Brussels. Pours bright red, very clear, with a thin white head. Aroma is soft and sweet, hints of cherry and bubblegum. This was my first faro lambic, and I really enjoyed the mild sourness and sweeter start to it. Flavor starts with a sweet fruit, then fades to a tart and mild sour finish with a bit of wild character. Kinda earthy and dry but overall refreshing.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2006
Draught at Mort Subite Café. Clear amber body with only a little ring of bubbles. Aroma of sugar candy. Taste is sugary and fake, like some kind of “red” flavoured soft drink. A tad sour and that’s it. I wish sudden death upon this mort subite.

bluevegie (3042) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2006
On tap @ a la Mort Subite. 26/05/06. Cherry red body with brown tinges and a very short head. Sweet nose, Sour taste with sugar dumped in, medium body but seems heavy from the sugar. Funky aroma. Just a bit heavy (sugar) to drink lots of.

lgklotet (432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2006
Draught at Mort Subite. My first faro. Beautiful, slightly dark copper. Lots of candied sugar in the aroma, alongside a hefty dose of lambic funkyness. Flavour and palate is tartness and sugar. Seems that the sweetness is in very good balance with the sourness of this beer. Quite complex. Positively surprised.
