Cunningham (4292) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Appearance: Hazy deep golden color with a frothy white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Some fusel. Acidic and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. Slightly sweet, moderate sour, mild acidic and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation. Medium dry texture.
Taste: Rich fusel. Acidic, citric, sugary and mild fruity.
Overall impression: I tend to like Faro a bit more than the other ones because they are a little bit more sweet.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with light particles. Earthy waxy barnyard aroma with fruity notes. Sweet-acidic fruity earthy barnyard taste with brown sugar notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Sweetish-acidic oily earthy barnyard aftertaste with dried fruit and brown sugar notes. Lovely, complex, drinkable. Perhaps the best faro I’ve ever had.

czar (4107) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
pours hazy almost cloudy dark golden, red hue, with a bubbly white head, excellent retention and lacing. fruitiness - apricots, berries, clementines, shy but present golden candi, fruity sweetness mostly - never cloying, hint of caramel, barn and moderate funk - which is atypical for a faro as much as i know - use of oude more than probaby helps, grass and herbs. bright carbonation, light body, relatively dry bretty herbal-grassy finish. a very pleasant surprise!

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle (750 ml). Slightly hazy bright copper with a medium fully lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is more sour than other Faro I’ve had so far. There’s also some light sweetness notes and some barnyard. Taste is slightly sweet with a nice barnyard presence and some fruits. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. More complex than other Faro I’ve had. Superb drinkability. Not too sweet. Loved it.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle 750ml. Pours dark amber with high creamy beige head. Intense lacing. Aroma is of funk, some fruits, barnyard. Something a tad weird, dunno what (candi?). Taste is of funk, candi, sugar. Palate: Pretty "dry" for a faro. Overall: Nice. Best Faro I had, and pretty different from others (way less unidimentionnally candied). You can feel the "oude" lambic.

JulienHuxley (2852) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark copper-gold pour with nice heavy lacing. Light lambic notes, oak, light leather, pretty tame aroma. Slightly sweet flavor, you can definitely taste a bit of sugar but nothing like a regular bottle of lindemans, very well balanced sweetness and sourness. Medium bodied, med-low carbonation that gives this beer near perfect drinkability. Very tasty, this beer blew my conception of faro out of the water.

DSG (5614) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 25, 2013
[10/9/13] Bottle on a bench outside the Royal Museum for Cental Africa in Brussels. Bottled 1/09. Hazy deep orange with a big frothy off-white head and hypnotizing carbonation. Pleasant barnyard aroma with oak, fruits and some brown sugar. Sweetish flavor with brown sugar, fruits, funky sourness, barnyard and oak. Medium-bodied. A very good Faro.
