CapFlu (4778) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2015
I canít believe I havenít had this... But itís really really gross so yes I can understand why. Smells like apple juice that has sat in the sun nd taken on a light vinegar aroma. Flavour is so sweet itís nauseating. Tastes like apple pulp mixed with sugar and lemon iced tea. Do not spend your money here.

Jow (2697) - New York, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle at home thanks to clockwork. Had a shitty day so figured crack a rare style tick to up the mood. Pours light brown with some floaters. Nose is candy and some caramel. Tastes of caramel, lots of pear, some yeast, candy, Lambic funk, and artificial sweetener.

Bue à la pression. Nez fruité, sucre et fruits au palais. Mal équilibrée, plutot mauvaise meme.

Alengrin (3221) - BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2014
Tasted from tap. Van Honsebrouckís 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.

vtafro (4801) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2014
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.

JulienHuxley (4230) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
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.

tom10101 (3872) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
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 donít know what will happen next. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Definitely one of the worst beer I have ever tried. Itís horrendous for an old beer and itís 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.
