2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted from tap. Van Honsebrouck’s reaction to the success of Lindemans Faro, but a failure if you ask me, sweet, artificial, sugary and lacking the complexity and funkiness which the true lambic adept appreciates so much. Redundant.

25 cl bottle. Brown pour with tan lacing. Sweet and off lambic aromas. Well it lives up to the worst faro in the world rating.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle at Kulminator. Clear deep gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is funky, cheesy, tons of garbage juice, really nasty. Taste is sweet, caramel, brown sugar, malt and garbage juice. Nasty crap.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle (250 ml) @ Kulminator. Slightly hazy bright amber with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of garbage, cardboard, brown sugar and rotten eggs. Taste is very similar but is actually more disturbing because, at that stage, you know that the liquid is entering your body and you really don’t know what will happen next. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Definitely one of the worst beer I have ever tried. It’s horrendous for an old beer and it’s atrocious for a faro so that give you an idea of how bad is that one. Should I be a torturer, that would be one of my prime instruments.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with no head. Very nice aroma of sour cherry. Taste is similar to the aroma - it’s sour and full of cherry.
