Pale, clear watery amber colored. Tiny head. Aroma of caramel, bread, dough, leather, earth and butterscotch. Taste is very sweet, like candy, caramel and soft drinks with a touch of tartness. Overall, VERY candylike. Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 22, 2011
Small white head on top of a clear orange brown colored beer.
Smell sour, yeast, wood, piss and spices.
Taste is sweet, a bit lighter sour, spices, yeast, wood, brown sugars, light malty and a hint of hops.
Aftertaste of (brown) sugars light sour and light spicy.
Low carbo, mid body and soft mouthfeel.
Actually pretty well balanced with sweets and sour. Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Hazy amber/cider color; Medium body; Aroma of sweet malt, yeast, tart fruit, & spice; Flavor of rich sweet malt, yeast, fruit, some caramel, and syrup; Finish is dry and slightly tart/sour; Nicely balanced; Overall, sweet as expected - quite good for the style. italarican (1550) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear, slightly glowing dark orange with a moderate, fizzy off-white head. Aroma is similar to a cheap wine with sugar added to it. Some pleasant notes of cranberry and cherry offset with white sugar. Flavor is similar: some cranberry and blackberry notes, but it ultimately tastes like a wine soda. It’s an honor bar red wine loaded with sugar and sierra mist. The sugary sweetness outdoes the tart flavors, and there’s an odd dry wine aftertaste. I actually don’t mind this all that much for a wine soda, no way in hell would I pay $6.50 for another taste. mike67 (1197) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2011
12 oz. Bottle. Pours orange-amber with a small, short lived, off-white head and Champaign like carbonation.
Aroma is of yeast, malt, brown sugar and barnyard. Full, tangy body. Taste is sweet malt, brown sugar and sour grapes. This brew could be a good substitute for Champaign.

Bottle sample thanks to skinnyguy! Light brown pour, little carbonation and an aroma of slightly sweetened vinegar. Flavor is super sweet brown sugar, slick and lingering sweet malt on the aftertaste. Finally got the faro style rating, but I think it’s safe to say this isn’t a style I’d try to go back to again. portableparty (2350) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 Bottle. Pour is amber in color and clear with a thin head that disapears quickly. Aroma comes off bitter sweet with some caramel and sour fruit. Taste was sweet and sour, but finished wanting more. Palate is thin and fizzy with a creamy dry finish. Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Sampled at the Richmond Gather XIII. Clear golden pour with no head. Backsweetned and somewhat tart. But not what i expected at all. Definitely not a geueze. Sampled again in Japan. Crazy backsweetend. Aroma is the only good thing. Flavor is absurdly sweet apple juice. Really not that good. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
(Sample Date: 1/15/2011 Source:Other) Earthy sugary aroma. Very clear dark golden with little head. Very sweet and earthy with a light sourness. Fruity but not really a specific fruit. Finish is quite sweet and earthy. Drake (13726) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle courtesy of MaltDawg or Kinz or Butters. Thanks whoever you are? Pours a clear copper with nearly no head. Aroma of tart notes with a lot of herbal earthy fungus going on. The taste is tart up front with a earthy, sugar finish. Medium bodied.
