kraddel (2806) - some beerplace, - NOV 24, 2012
very happy to have found this one ! onley had one faro so far (being the lindemans) wich chocked me on how much i like it ! 3 fonteinen is my favourite sour by far, so those 2 combining? hell yeah ! and the pure luck to find this , even lifts my happiness and high expectations up ! opens very agresively ! twisting the metal cap makes the cork pop itself out already ! no gusher, though ( luck stikes again !) pours blonde-orange, imidiatly fading foam. great how insanely much smell this has ! definetly more sourness than the lindemans ( yeah i know, what a shock ) taste : waaw very sour ! that means, for a faro. kinda uncomparable with the other one i had ! this ’apple’ taste as i can onley desribe it ( aplle with the sourness of it) comes in the swallowing and first aftertase, followed by that .. typical 3 fonteinen-ish taste, and other apple taste. this drinks inb layers and is definetly very very nice ass well ! if this were available like lagers, i’d drink faro lake a lagerboy drinks lager , if they keep tasting this nice ! glad i didnt share the bottle :p

Taster from bottle pour. Deep amber. Not a lot of head. Sweet nose. Dark fruits. Juicy. Hint of vinegar. Crisp taste. Brett and lemon, balanced with caramel and leather. Complex, round flavors. Great execution.

bottle brought by max to WWBA bless your heart. pours brown with nose of ripe fruits and caramel. tastes sweet but only faintly of that weird fao sugar stuff. you also get plenty of toffee, reduced balsamic, figs, and leaves. funky finish and lingering sweetness. pretty awesome

JulienHuxley (2949) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle at Grote Dorst. Not quite clear deep amber pour with thin white head. Aroma is fruity, nice Drie fonteinen funk, wet hay, aromas of oxidization are also quite present (sherry, toast, caramel). Taste is sweet, malty, light acidity. Palate is medium bodied, a bit heavier feeling than a typical gueuze, med-light carbonation. Not my favourite but still quite easy drinking, glad I could try this again after a horrible first bottle some years ago.

tom10101 (2665) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle (750 ml) @ In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst. Hazy caramel color with a low white head and little lacing. Aroma is of caramelized apples, Drie Fonteinen funk, oxidation, some fruitiness and wood. Taste moderately sweet (not that much for a "Faro) with caramel, funk, oxidation notes that fits quite well in the beer and help balance the sweetness and some fruitiness. Medium body (heavy for a lambic). Moderate carbonation. Moderately dry finish. This is the best Faro I have had for sure, but this is also the less Faro-like that I had. It’s surprising how the oxidation fits well in the beer. Tasty and drinkable for an 8% abv Faro.

Plovmand (6323) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours amber with a small off white head. The aroma is leather, sweet malt, citrus and tart berries. The flavor is tart ripe berries, acid, leather and marmalade. Good mix of sweetness and tart fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gEUS (1001) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle 2008 - at sloshfest. Thanks Vincent (BelgBeerGeek). Pours deep amber with a brown hue. Slight to no head. Subtle forest notes, nuts and barnyard funk. Makes one think a lot of the T25, let it be a bit more refined.
