Bottle. Pours reddish amber with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma is sweet/sour. Flavor is mildly fruity (peach?), fairly sour, some lemon peel, not much funk, quite sweet. Don’t have much experience with faros, but I like it. Very refreshing -- almost drinks like a soda. Highly carbonated. Extra candy sugar makes for a full but not heavy mouthfeel.

corby112 (2813) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Pours a dark, hazy plum color with amber edges and a fizzy half finger head and that quickly settles into a thin ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Syrupy sweet aroma with some slight earthy funky. Lots of sweet artificial medicine and candy syrup with some pale malts and dark fruits. On the lighter end of medium bodied and very sweet with lots of artificial sweetness. Lots of candy sugar and syrup with subtle tart funk and sweet dark fruit. Hints of cherry, grape and other dark berries produce an overwhelming sweetness that lingers into a slight dry finish.

ElDesmadre (3630) - Mikołów, POLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Bottle. Greyish amber with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is of dry white wine, apples, subtle vinegar and elderflower. Reminds me partly of dark rum, partly of port wine. Taste is a bit drier than the Lindemans fruit lambics, sourish, vinous, flowery and fruity. Also sweet but this side is matched by the sourness. A bit dry finish with an aftertaste of plums and port wine. Excellent!

gramity (1684) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
Murky amber with a fluffy, small pinkish head. Nice sugary sour smell. Sticky sweet flavor at first, changing quite tart as the carbonation hits your mouth. Very enjoyable but extremely sugary. Sticky palate due to all of the sugar. Tartness coats the mouth. Very fruity.

RickTStiles (827) - Houston, Texas, USA - OCT 30, 2011
pours a pale rose color with not head or lacing. aroma is fresh berries and sugar. taste is sour cherry, candy sugar, with a strong yeast presence. there is a great deal of sweetness but just a bit of bitter to balance out the act, especially once the yeast is added. finish is tart and sticky.

Finhead (1815) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2011
An orange-red pour with a small white head. The aroma is fruity with some lemon and a winelike quality. The medium body has a slick texture with average carbonation. The taste is initially sweet, then tart. It seems more like juice with a dry finish. Not quite my style.

prawlie (1676) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2011
25 cL bottle from ABS Drinks in Winksele, poured into a Westmalle glass at home. Amber/red beer with very little head. Warm, sweet and slightly sour beer, with lots of candy and reasonable body. The bottle I had stated the alcohol was 4.2%. A very weak sweet aroma, 5/10 given as its hard to detect. Quite nice for a change, but I couldn’t imagine drinking more than one it a particular sitting as its so sweet. Not as sour as I would expect for a lambic type beer - albeit faro. None-the-less pleasant and different.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2011
In bottle. Pours an amber colour with a beige head that dies away fairly quickly. Aroma is quite nice with lemon peel and horse-blanket geuze qualities. The flavour is sweeter than the nose lets on. A bit shocking at first but I’m getting used to it. The flavours are sweet, sour and also a little bitter. The mouth-feel is foamy with mild carbonation and CO2 prickle and a lingering balsamic vinegar tartness. A good example of my least favourite lambic style.

21/10/2011 25cl bottle @ home - BB: 22/6/2013 (2011-573)

Clear amber to copper beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: fruity, little lemony, bitter, oranges, basement. MF: little carbon, light to medium body. Taste: wow, this beer actually tastes like barf, fresh out of your stomach. Then there’s sweet sugar, lemon, bitter chemical touches and bitter oranges. Aftertaste: still barf. Pretty nasty.
