75cl bottle shared at tasting. Caramel brown pour. Aroma is sugar and tart. Taste is flat, lost carbonation unfortunately. Wish I could try a good bottle of this. Bummer.

BB backlog, Bottle in 2013, think it was a 2008 vintage. Pours amber with small sized head. Notes of wet oak, lactic lemon, horse blanket, blackberry, sherry and light caramel. Pretty sour but also has some more belgian fruit notes. Body and carbonation were light to medium. Glad I was able to try this one but prefer gueuze.

Shared by Andy. No head, brown. So, guess it’s a good faro. Not to sweet and I guess there is Lambic. I like the Lambic but the sweetness is still weird. Sugar sour.

ctipping (2251) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2016
750 mL bottle. Originally reviewed 9/20/2014.

Deep hazy orange. No head.

Smells kinda funky. Orange. Dry grass. A little lemony acidity.

Taste much more sour than I expected. Lemon. A bit of vinegar. Woody. Some deep brown sugar. A bit of oxidation.

Medium body. Medium carbonation.

I thought this would be terrible, but it’s pretty good. Very sour.

Bottle shared at DHVL. Hazy amber brown with a bubbly light tan head. Aroma is oxidized with big sherry notes, toffee, tart fruits and a light funk. Flavour is moderate sweet and sour, with very citric acidity in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Amber pour with VERY minimal off-white head. Thank you, Adam, for sharing this! Smells like a fake sweet cherry lollipop. Not loving this aroma. Mouthfeel is weak. But the flavor is good for what this is. While there’s some sediment in this pour, this tastes like moldy cherry pie. Oxidation has definitely kicked in. It’s still drinkable and pretty solid, overall. Given that this is a faro, I’m going to be a bit more lenient with my rating...
