marcus (9213) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours amber with a modest beige head and a cereal and fruit aroma. There is a mildly sour malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. A very nice traditional faro.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle... Mostly clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is funky, acidic and fairly acetic. Full-bodied with lively carbonation. Wow! The flavor is acutely sour and acetic up front; then tart and quite sweet on the backside. Finishes crisp and tart with lingering sweetness. Spare the sugar next time. It’s why most Faros suck. This would be very nice if it was a Flanders red - although a bit too sweet for even that style - but it’s supposed to be a lambic. Interesting and enjoyable despite being heavy on the vinegar and sugar. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Enjoyit (3756) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2014
Clear amber of color with an off white head. An aroma of bread, sweet and pooh. A flavor of hay, bitter, dry and sour.

Cunningham (7047) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Appearance: Hazy deep golden color with a frothy white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Some fusel. Acidic and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. Slightly sweet, moderate sour, mild acidic and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation. Medium dry texture.
Taste: Rich fusel. Acidic, citric, sugary and mild fruity.
Overall impression: I tend to like Faro a bit more than the other ones because they are a little bit more sweet.
Personal stats: Bottle from Mr Kaaz

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2013
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body with light particles. Earthy waxy barnyard aroma with fruity notes. Sweet-acidic fruity earthy barnyard taste with brown sugar notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Sweetish-acidic oily earthy barnyard aftertaste with dried fruit and brown sugar notes. Lovely, complex, drinkable. Perhaps the best faro I’ve ever had. (0.375l bottle, from wine monopoly, Strømmen.)

czar (7816) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
pours hazy almost cloudy dark golden, red hue, with a bubbly white head, excellent retention and lacing. fruitiness - apricots, berries, clementines, shy but present golden candi, fruity sweetness mostly - never cloying, hint of caramel, barn and moderate funk - which is atypical for a faro as much as i know - use of oude more than probaby helps, grass and herbs. bright carbonation, light body, relatively dry bretty herbal-grassy finish. a very pleasant surprise!

tom10101 (5335) - 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 (3297) - 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.
