Prufrockstar (1580) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle pour, thanks to beastie. Bottled Jan 2009, I hear. Cork was a pain in the ass to get out, but Eugeneís a champ (special thanks to the corkscrew). Clear dark amber pour. Head for a second, but then nothing. Aroma: Whoa, this smells like a lambic. Not what I recall from the one other faro Iíve had. Big funky, lambic, tire rubber nose. Taste is sweet, but not so much that it completely overpowers the lambic funk. Medium body, soft carbonation, slick texture. Overall: sweet and funky, how could I not like this? Definitely the best of this category Iíve had (granted, Iíve only had one other).

beastiefan2k (2904) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAR 1, 2015
375mL cork and cage. Bottled in January 2009. This is my last beer from Copenhagen haul from fall 2013. Cork would not come out. Pours with no head but still visibly carbonated. Copper amber color, clear, carbonation bubbles visible. Aroma is soooo lambicy, lots of cobwebby, dry brett (horse blanket, barn), and a decent sugar faro aspect. But the least sugar aroma of any faro Iíve had. Flavor has the sugar upfront with the lambjc in the background.

BeerandBlues2 (10909) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 30, 2015
Bottle in the hotel from Beer Planet. Pours clear amber with a lively and fizzy off-white head, medium-short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is sour grapes and berries with sweet malt and cellar, black walnut notes. Flavor is tart and acidic berries and grapes, light sugar notes, sweet malt, cellar and earthy yeast with stale earthy hops and a dry finish. Light body and heavy carbonation.

Plovmand (7100) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle 2009 edition. Pours slightly hazy Amber with a small white head. The aroma is barnyard, light malty, acid and light fruity. Quite sweet flavor with some acidic and leather notes. Interesting version of a Faro.

circinus (261) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle 37.5 cl from Barleywine in Copenhagen. Slightly hazy orange/brown with a thin beige head. Cherries, gooseberries, some tartness, sugary sweetness. Medium/light body, lively carbonation, sweet-tart finish. Interesting and refreshing.

Franzen (408) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014
Tart aroma of overripe strawberries and hints of stable. Taste is sweet and sour with a taste of cherries. The sweetness is well balanced with the sourness making it not too sweet and not to tart. Interesting with the sweetness in combination with the tartness, could have been a little less sweet though.

Jow (2843) - New York, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Bottle at home while watching some SOA. Pours nice orange with foamy head. Pleasant nose of candy and slight tart lemons. Tastes of cherry twizzlers, apricot, caramel, slight pepperiness, and some lemon Pickering. More sour than other faros Iíve had but it still quite sweet especially on finish. The depth of flavors though puts this above other faros Iíve had.

Grzesiek79 (3545) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottled in January 2009. Niesamowite i odjazdowy lambick. Po glosnym wystrzeleniu korka i zadymieniu wprost z szyjki butelki 0,75 juz podczas nalewania dociera zapach wilgotnej scierki, i mokrego drewna. Pieniste niesamowicie, przy tym solidnie trwala piana, kolor bardzo metny bursztynowo-herbaciany. Zapach intensywny nieco potu i trocin, a smak niesamowicie z poczatku uderza slodycz w postaci kandyzowanego cukru potem blyskawicznie smak przestawia sie na cierpka i kwaskowa nute, do tego lekko gryzaca i goryczkowa. Doskonale zbalansowane. Rownowaga miedzy slodkosci a kwasna lambickowa octowoscia. Finisz kwasny intensywny i dlugi, lekkie nuty brazowego cukru gdzies w oddali. Swietne prawdziwe FARO. Mistrzostwo stylu, polecam jaknajbardziej.

Bottle from a beer shop in Copenhagen (which I wish I could remember!). Hazy orange pour no head. Lots of sweet spice in the nose, candy sugars and a spot of wet moss. Huge sweet íní sour tang. Nice spice linger. Good stuff.
