2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (2009, with mold on the cork!), shared with BBGTC. Pours a deep hazy orange body with a medium white head. Nose is citric acid-like vinegar notes, horseblanket, straw and hints of moss (!) and cellar must. Taste is sweet sugary tones (kind of resembling those tiny artificial tea-sweetener pills we call "sukketter" in Norway), apple cider, touches of horseblanket and hay. Medium body, high carbonation. Talk about having a massive chasm between aroma and flavor! Far too sweet and sugary for me, but not a bad example of the style I guess.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours clear golden amber with a small, frothy white film head. Aroma has sugar, lemony, funk, tart oranges. Medium carbonation, fine dryish and light tart mouthfeel. Flavour is quite sweet, almost crunchy sugar, but with good oranges tartness. Faro’s are still a weird bunch, though.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Vintage 2009:
Medium to bigger sized, pretty vast, sticky and slowly changing creamy to beige foamy head on top of a light cloudy dark yellow to amberish colored beer.
The aroma’s are a nice mix of cellar notes, wild yeast, wet stone, some light sour tints, pickles, clear wild wooded yeast, yeasty dust, hints of lemon and malts.
The flavour of this beer is a lovely balanced mix of wild yeast, crispy tart, wood, malts, hint of caramel and hint of flowers, light dry, herbal, cellar stone and dust. Lovely!
There’s a medium sourness and lighter lighter, just a hint of something light sweet that gets taken over by the sournes this beer has. Nice!
Aftertaste is dry, sour, bitter, wild yeast, wood and a hint of malts. Well done.
Low to medium carbo, light dry tarty mouthfeel, medium to fuller body and a creamy texture.
Another lovely Faro! Good beer for sure!
On a side note: had some sushi with it and it suited eachother fine.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber with only the smallish of heads. Appears somehwat dead in the glass. Aromas are dominated by acetone and little else. Flavours show some lambic type sourness with a somehwat artifical sugary sweetness. Ok but had probably hoped for more.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served in a De Cam tumbler. Thanks, Matt. Nose is lambic-like with slight funk and citrus but taste is harsh and a bit of a disaster. Lightly sour.
