maneliquor (3154) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle at Jackís farewell at Bruceís. Pours a very vibrant but hazy golden colour with a fine beige rind and great lacing. Nose shows toffee, light funk, doughy bread. Taste is all about the heavy funk yet somehow quite balanced between the toffee, bready and fruit driven tones - orange poppiseed cake. Soft driven carbonation with sticky sweetness and a touch of heat. Very sessionable and dry finishing. Good stuff

mcberko (6696) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
750mL bottle at Grote Dorst, pours a beautiful opaque dark orange amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of the traditional 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze qualities with a subtlety of candied sugar -- with loads of barnyard funk, leather and a hint of candied sugar. Flavour is similar -- probably the least sweet faro Iíve had. There are notes of barnyard funk, leather and a subtle use of candied sugar. Very complex and highly drinkable. Delicious stuff, though not in the most elite calibre of 3 Fonteinen beers.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 19, 2013
75cl green glass bottle that is gold foiled, caged and corked with a bottled on date of 25/01/2008 and best by date of 01/2012. Iím drinking this March 18, 2013 so it has had time to funk right up, hopefully. It pours copper with a slight haze and supporting a light tan colored head of foam. The aroma is a mix of aged cherries and wet old wood with a good dose of earthy moldy basement every now and then. A few more tugs and I get an additional light note of sweet something, malts maybe. This smells like a slightly soured barleywine, I like it. The taste is woody tart aged cherries that leans into a blunted basement wet plank of wood like sensation. It is smooth and blunted and blended and a little thin on the palate. Nice stuff.

75 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20101126.
Pours murky amber color with a medium head. Aroma of sweet and ripe fruits, citrus fruits also, some yeast and spices. Flavor of lots of fruits, some berry notes, yeast and spices. Surprisingly sour for a faro. Excellent.

lortsker (332) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle 2008 vintage. Thanks a bunch Theis. Pours murky brownish red. Minimal head. You get a lot of grain, sour dough, rye bread notes, herbal and spicy notes, lacto, vinegar notes, green apples. A bit oxidised. Taste is like sultana raisin juice with hits of dry lemon and loads of lacto. Dried fruits, and apple cider vinegar. Really nice!

This was a treat, nice to finally see the top of the faro ladder! .. . pours a murky tan .. medium foam .. . trodden prune, clumpy sugar, barn bucket, and rope funk .. . slick mouth .. . pretty tasty . . .. Well, I could be wrong, but I believe, uh, diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the civil war era.

Advocate_Ames (438) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2013
2009 bottle. Not much in the appearance and hardly any carbonation. The scent is a tad funky. I picked up on a nice fruit scent. There is primarily sour grapes in the flavor. Overall a fine drink for its style. The palate isnít hit hard and the tartiness fades nicely.
