Alengrin (2331) - 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 (3687) - 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 (3341) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - 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 (3008) - 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.

atrox (183) - Krakůw, POLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Pours amber with no head. Very nice aroma of sour cherry. Taste is similar to the aroma - itís sour and full of cherry.

Bottle at zytholoog Pours brown/amber , fast fading good white head Sweet smell - perfumed even Very much alike caramelized apples . Very arteficial

KyotoLefty (6635) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle at Kulminator. Drink by 2009. Caramel and cream nose, sour cream, yogurt. Medium amber-orange color with lace. Very sweet, much like ginger ale, with lemon and cream, and a bit of spoiled milk. More like a soda.

77ships (4211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2013
Courtesey of KyotoLefty. 25 cl. bottle sampled @ Kulminator. BBF 11/2009 so 2007 Vintage? I donít think that they are still making this. Very, very few recent ratings. Darker amber with a tanned head that only shows on the sides. Smell of cough syrup, very sweet, iron, some herbs, very sticky, some aged sweetness but additives have kept this well, thick sugar. Taste is very sweet, reminds me of Red Bull, aged Red Bull of sorts, sweet cough syrup, some herbs, iron, odd aged flavour, obv. zero sweetness. Prickling carb. this tastes a bit like an already opened energy drink, energy drink body. Not to bad actually for what it is not off-flavour from sweeteners.
