JefVerstraete (3190) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2014
Sample @ the brewery. Amber colour, almost no head. Soft carbonation. Aroma of green apples, lemon and brown sugar. Sweet but also enough sourness. Well balanced. Good faro.

At the brewery, thx to Armand for the sample. APPEARANCE: light clouded blond beer, small very stable off white head. NOSE: sour, some sweetness, candy sugar. TASTE: quite sweet, not too much, sourness still there, very nice! One of the better faros for me

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Poured a light to medium amber with a frothy head. Aroma of candy sweetness, light funk. Light to medium body, flavour is lightly sweet, lightly sour, quite refreshing. Not nearly as sickly as most faros.

kermis (12485) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
Pours light amber brown with a big off white head. Aroma is like putting your sink in a dank cellar alongside an old incontinent horse with its blanket flung over its shoulders like a hipsters scarf. Flavour is moderate sweet and light moderate acidic. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

kraddel (7416) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
on tap @ open beerdays . New batch, fresh of production. First glass, according to Armand a bit too young perhaps . re-rate will happen if needed . Pours bit darker blonde / yellow / orange . Big white foam ( yet this is a still beer ) Smell is sweet, in a funky way . Taste is sweet, funk, bit of sourness in the back. Full mouthfeel , very dry . Nice , but straffe winter remains my favourite ;)

On tap at 3 Fonteinen Restaurant. Pours hazy, light amber with no head. Aroma is sweet dark sugars up front with a layer of fruity, funky, hay and barnyard notes beneath. Taste is medium sweet dark sugars, light tart and funky notes coming through in the end. Smooth medium bodied, low carbonation.

Bov (12530) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 17, 2014
@3 Fonteinen Restaurant - dark amber-orange beer with a good head retention; aroma of candy sugar, blood oranges and dust; a decent malt backbone; pretty sweet; light honeyish, citric and red fruity finish with a lingering sweetness - balance and tasty yet not my kind of beer
