Corked bottle, jan 09. Amber color. Oak, lemon, caramel and honey in the aroma. Sweet and sour flavor. lemon, toffee, oak. A somewhat messy heap of flavors and aromas. Too sweet for me, but a very interesting beer.

As good as a faro gets on bottle (haven't had any on tap yet) it's hard to get your head around. I think it's good but who knows right ;)

kraddel (3728) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAY 5, 2013
bottle @ home. pours amber, small fading white foam. smell is sweet, lambic taste is soft, very drinkable and dweet, complex. aftertaste gets more to the sour ( you can even feel this in the throat ! ) and than back to an everlasting sweetness ( realy, an hour later, still had sweetness from this) a nice example, but not THE best faro .

lusikka (6603) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
750 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013. Vintage 2009.
Pours a cloudy orange golden colour. Aroma of syrup, cough drops, caramel and some grass. Flavour is very strong and sour at first with notes of syrup, cough drops and hay, but after a while it turns to sweet, apple, raisiny. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Rather interesting, sour and sweet at the same time. One of the best Faros Ive tasted.

Bottled@vPBFII. Orangeish deep golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is sour wood, some sugar and mild syrupy notes. Flavour is sour and tart wood, with a very sweet syrupy notes. Really dry palate. Beautiful beer.

laiti (6149) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
75 cl bottle vintage 2009 @ wPBF13, bottled 01/2009
Aroma is somewhat tart and sour with grapefruit. Flavour is sweet and sour with brown sugar, earthy notes and grapefruit. Acidic finish. Confusing stuff; sour and tart but also sugary sweet at the same time.
