tom10101 (3906) - 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 (2603) - 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 (4243) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - 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 (8448) - Tel Aviv, - 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.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2013
0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and actually courtesy of Etre. No pop in the cap, but it has a lovely big just off-white head on top of a cloudy peach orange body. Nice brett aroma with a lemon tartness, grapefruit, rice vinegar and some light candied sugar. Smells really nice this! It’s definitely on the sweet faro path this one. Just about average on the carbonation with a filling mouthfeel. Lots of candied sugar here, sweet plums, something berry fruity and watery sugar syrup. The smell is super confusing compared with the taste. Smells lovely sour, tastes sugary sweet! Fruktsaft with oranges and mango in the finish. A full bottle would definitely not have been finished by me alone. 20.03.2013

Bottle shared with Simonsen, edvard & daje
Orange hazy, almost no head. Smells of the norwegian word "Gymbag", funk, smelly socks. Medium to heavy sweet, sugar syrup and candis sugar. What an extreme differense between flavor and expectations after just smelling this. Wow. Awsome aroma, not as awsome when tasted

gEUS (1473) - Linden, BELGIUM - OCT 1, 2013
750 ml bottle at home (taken from notes) - pours clear medium dark amber with ni head. Aroma of nuts and candi sugar, red grapes, some citrus. Medium body with still a good amount of subtle carbonation. Sweet palate and subtle sourness. Not his best beer imo but nice and easily drinkable.

Medbrakt av esp0r på hytta til dag. Lys gylden farge. Lite karbonert. Sitrus,stikkelsbær,kandis,gjær,rompesvette. Noen har tydeligvis smuglet inm denne ølen i ræva. Veldig spesiell

Steve_0 (3347) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle with friends courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man!! Pour is clear amber with a frothy cream head that quickly dissipated. Funky, green apples, pears, somewhat caramelly, bready, lemon peel aroma. Taste is is super sweet - cloyingly sweet - a touch of acid, somewhat funky, and lemon peels with a lightly tart finish. Light body with high carbonation. A complete sugar bomb and I enjoyed Girardin’s much more.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thanks Aaron! Clear orange pour with white head, aroma brings notes of vinegar, slight lactic, sugar, hints of oak, interesting. Taste is a mix of huge sugar, toffee, slight vinegar, earth, biscuit, slight oak, lemon notes, finishing fairly sweet, slightly tart.
