Martinus (3638) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JUN 3, 2015
Clear golden colour, dissipating white bubbles. Aroma of apples, light sugar, some light butter. Somewhat sweet flavou, apple, light lemon zest, some funk. Finish sour apple, lambic funk. Quite fresh. Lambic with the sharp edges removed somewhat. Interesting.
(From draught @ ZBF 2015, Leuven)

AdamChandler (3521) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Dark and hazy burnt orange. 1 finger head. Good cork pop. Very cheesy and brett forward. Citrus taste with for sure a little sweetness. Not a lot of depth compared to a Gueuze but thatís expected with Faro. Lemon, orange, sugar. Nice beer ...canít find RBers name who shared!!! but Iím so glad to have finally tried this small 37CL bottle

ElManana (1038) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2015
Draft at De Cam. Very grainlike at first, cookies with a special aftertaste. Gets better the more you drink, lemon, sugary, but very well balanced. Good stuff!

Kr1zz (254) - BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015

danlo (1588) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2015
375ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Hazy amber brown colour, white foam head and aroma of lemon rind, vinegar, funk. Taste is mellow sweetish caramel, sugary, with sour citric notes, tangy, bittersweet, plus some barnyard notes. Medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, lingering sweet and sour at the finish. Quite drinkable.

Prufrockstar (1442) - 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 (2804) - 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.
