3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Bottle 330ml
Pours reddish brown, with big frothy offwhite, diminishing. Good lacing. Aroma is of funk, acid, yogurt, wood, sugar. Tastes sweet, acid, sour, fruits. Weird feelling in the mouth, almost like drinking blood. Somewhat metalic. Dry, oaky finish. The first sips surprised me, but I got used to the stuff. Not bad, but way too sweet imho (as a faro can be too sweet). Nice oak features.

330ml bottle. Clear brown/red with off-white head. Aroma has winegar and red berries. Flavor is sweet with red cherries and currants. Almost feel like a red dessert wine. Nice, but certainly not very drinkable.

Unusual taste of cherry, currents and grape juice. The kind of taste that makes you take another sip, though. Leaves the mouth feeling slightly dry between drinks. Overall, quite a nice drink. Quite different.

Bottle from Barley Wine.
Pours red with nearly no head at all.
Smells vinegary in a postive way, red wine as well.
The taste is a bit staggering with light red wine, sour apple and red currant and some small sweet tones. Some woody notes. Finishes off nice - dry and sour.

Great for hot days, this sour is well balanced, but not something you'll want much of.

Bottle poured a clear red hue, fully diminishing beige head. Faint musky aroma. Initial taste is light sweet with a sour finish. Flavors of cherry, yeast, and wood resin. Creamy mouth feel and soft carbonation. Medium bodied. A pleasant balance of sweet and sour.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Sour apples, vinegar nose. Dark brown with ruby highlights. A quick bit of fruity sweetness, and then the sour bite digs in; mid palate has more sourness moderated by some candy and cough drops; in final there is considerable astringency and traces of fruitiness remain. Thin-medium body. Very pleasant, with moderate sourness.
