Vignale (3311) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2016
Flaska från boxbeer.com. 2009 vintage. Orangegul mycket disig vätska med lågt skum. Stor stiltypisk geuezedoft med funk, citrus, friska äpplen, fat och lite honungssötma i bakgrunden. Riktigt välbalanserad där sötman som har drag av nektar och honung lyfter och mjukar upp smakerna men aldrig tar över. Riktigt riktigt gott. Kanske den bästa Faro jag druckigt.

Klimaet (1860) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar Aarhus. 2009 vintage. Cork is lightly moldy with some sugary leftovers. Pours hazy dark orange with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is citrussy, grapefruit soda, some moldy and funky flavours, but overall a very sugary nose with subtle citrus and green apples. Taste is very sweet and sugary. Minimal funk, light barnyardy nose, sweet green apples and grapefruit. The sweetness is really overpowering. I’ll never really enjoy faro that much.

Christian (12883) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2015
Hazy dark amber with a bubbly white head. Funky aroma with grapefruit, hay, old leaves, and a hint of vinegar. Quite sweet, but deliciously tart flavour, with plenty of funky character. It has to be one of the tastiest Faros I have had

ineedbeer (1815) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Poured from a 375 ml bottle. Aroma is nice with some moderate and balanced, oak, herbal, Earth and fruit notes. Some light pineapple and citrus notes. Nice herbal, grassy character with a bit of earhty notes. Pours a slightly hazy, light copper color with a medium sized, moderately thick white head that recedes to a thin film that lingers for a bit. No lacing and small legs. Flavor has a medium light acidity with a moderate sweetness. Medium light oak notes with medium light herbal, earthy notes. Light citrus and pineapple. Hints of stone fruit. Lingering sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium to medium high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, really nice oak and herbal notes. Earthy character is nice with decent citrus and tropical fruit notes. Sweetness is a bit over the top and artificial to me, but I guess this is a bit how the style should be.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4589) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2015
Cask at In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst - Oude faro de cam. A lovely gold with a cork sugary sweetness. Dry, light body. The taste Is tart, cork, woodsy and sweet. It pairs well with a bready traditional belgium rice pudding.

Martinus (4495) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2015
Clear golden colour, dissipating white bubbles. Aroma of apples, light sugar, some light butter. Somewhat sweet flavou, apple, light lemon zest, some funk. Finish sour apple, lambic funk. Quite fresh. Lambic with the sharp edges removed somewhat. Interesting.
(From draught @ ZBF 2015, Leuven)
