Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2009
Very sparkly orange Faro. Taste is pleasant but not sofisticated at all. Nice for a simple refreshing drink.

Christian (11056) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2012 Amber with a small white head. Aroma of bready malt, vineous dried fruits and brown sugar. Sweet fruity flavour, caramel and wood, and a little tartness that makes it very drinkable. 6-3-7-3-13 = 3.2



Odense Catching Up on Stuff Left in the Cellar Event July 2012. 2010 vintage. Developed into something much funkier and a bit tart. Who knew that a faro needed time to develop! Great aroma, still a sweet and not-quite-right flavour

oro buona schiuma media persitenza note dolciastre caramello un po di spezia in bocca tendente al dolce lieve acidità un po di legno un faro speziato sembra

JorisPPattyn (7886) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2009
Small white rim over orange-amber beer, clear. Wood, brown candi sugar, fruity, like preserved fruit. Very Faro-like, with wood, again lots of candi sugar. Finish being faintly sourish, dried apricot, and a bit spicy. Sticky, well)bodied, syrupy. Why don’t they just call this faro - that’s what it is. Way too sweet, too, and a bit of spices won’t change a d*mn.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a clear amber golden with a small, rough, off-white head. Lightly tart aroma with notes of fruit and caramel. Medium body, lightly tart, lightly fruity and lightly sulphurous. Notes of brown sugar. Very discreet bitterness. Mostly this reminds me of a Faro. An easy and pleasant drink. 300409

Dedollewaitor (13803) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2009
75cl bottle @ VinensVerden, Odense. POurs a cloudy amber with a white foam and lacings. Nose is sweet and matured. Caramel, toffee, cherries and dark fruits. Taste is a bit cloying with hints of almond & corn. Medium bodied. Very sweet. Would have loved a more tart cherry feel.
