ctipping (1847) - 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 its pretty good. Very sour.

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 theres some sediment in this pour, this tastes like moldy cherry pie. Oxidation has definitely kicked in. Its still drinkable and pretty solid, overall. Given that this is a faro, Im going to be a bit more lenient with my rating...

neongolden (1531) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
(750ml 2008 bottle @ Delirium Cafe, July 27th 2015) Pours fairly clear iced tea colour with a small head of big bubbles and no lace. Aroma is like a hybrid of Flanders bruin and barley wine, sweet and tart with lots of dried fruit, especially prunes and figs and sweet grapes, fortified wine notes (moscatel or tawny port) give a vinous feel, fairly oxidized, oak and a slightly sulphurous funk in the background. On the palate, not nearly as sweet, with a big component of acetic acid for a lambic. Oxidized, moderately funky, crabapple and golden raisins, hints of caramel. Funk towards the finish, some sulphur, hint of mint, oaky. Light bodied with carb almost all gone. I think this had got a little past it (and perhaps not the best venue for handling...), nose promised more but the oxidation had got to the palate. Still quite interesting, would have been even better in slightly nicer condition.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2015
75cl bottle from 2008, pours red brown to amber, a little hazey. Small white head, quickly dissipating. This is a specialty lambic, closest to a faro since dark candi sugar was added, though the Lambic portion was untraditional using some amber and Munich malts. Wheat is its main ingredient. 8ABV, one time brew. Great sweet-sour balance, oak, lactic acid, earthy notes, lambic and dark candi. Also whiskey notes. Beautiful!

Bottle at S&G Tasting. Many many thanks to Mathieu87 for this bottle. Rating #2000. APPEARANCE: clouded blond beer, small unstable white head. NOSE: caramel, little sour. TASTE: rather sweet, but very sour, some carbonation, very very nice faro! Aged quite amazing actually!
