FatPhil (15967) - Tallinn, - SEP 11, 2012
250ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) BB 2010-11, Drunk 2012-09
Very pleasant sweet aroma, like the ’golden nuggets’ breakfast cereal i had when I was a kid (that probably means there’s some butterscotch). Clear bold rich orange, brief head. Full sweet palate, gentle carbonation. Sweat breakfast-cerealy honey-covered wheat-flake taste. Rather nice. Finish is mostly the sweetness, and to be honest, I shouldn’t give this 4, but it was very nice in the mouth, so I have to. Overall, a remarkably drinkable modern faro, better than some of the more traditional ones I’ve had, to be honest. However, that’s because I think faro is intrinsically a modern sweet thing, not a traditional sour thing. If you want to stick sugars into your old lambics, then do them via the medium of young lambic, and give me a geueze. If, however, you want a luscious sweet drink, then make one of these.

Dark copper colour with an average-sized firm white head. Some lacing. Surprisingly weak aroma shows dough, sugar and a vague hint of tart fruitiness. Luckily more bright in the taste with a very sweet caramel and sugary base, a mild, delicate touch of refreshing sourness bringing balance and hints of cherry fruitiness. Not too rich but pleasantly refreshing. Light bodied with average, soft carbonation, easy and highly drinkable. Overall a light-feeling, quite refreshing, mostly sweet and slightly sour beer. Ok, but not very interesting.

zboj (219) - POLAND - JUN 14, 2017
Warka z datą przydatności na butelce 13.11.2017. Piwo w barwie bursztynowe, piana na samym początku się pojawia, ale szybko redukuje się do opaski i nie zostawia koronki na szkle. W aromacie nuty winne i gdzieś w tle końska derka. W smaku natomiast dominują akcenty winne i owocowe (głównie jabłka, ale nie takie kwaśne, jak w Gueze, a także winogrona). W posmaku jest słodko-kwaśno, przez co piwo nie męczy i jest fajnie orzeźwiające.

Caramel, sugar, sour and light acetic notes, deep amber with a thin ocher head, light body, medium carbonation, quite sweet in order to balance sour notes...it’s ok but not special.

evannell (1088) - Kraków, POLAND - MAY 31, 2017
Zapewne jest to bardzo ciekawa rzecz dla miłośników słodkiego wina. Brzoskwiniowo-jabłkowe aromaty, słodycz w smaku, skontrowana tylko częściowo kwaśnością. Troszkę męczy, ale naprawdę ciekawe i fajne.

pivnizub (10575) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2017
Bouteille: Almost clear, chestnut-amber coloured, mid-sized stable and creamy off-white head; distinctive sweet-sourish nose with fruity, cellary and mouldy aromas; moderate sourish-sweet flavour, medium bodied and astonishingly soft; lingering sweet and sourish-tart finish with returning cellary, mouldy and malty flavours. A bit on the sweet side - as expected - but all in all a nice summer-drink...

Fisler (527) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAY 20, 2017
Das ist ja mal ein Fläschchen, doppelt verkorkt. Optisch bräunlich, keine Perlen, kein Schaum. In der Nase Trauben, Kombucha. Im Trunk sehr sauer, staubig, aber mit interessanter Holznote. Süß aber nicht pappig. Sehr speziell. Bin kein Fan von sauren Bieren, aber das macht Lust.
