douglas88 (7180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 25, 2011
750 ml bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. Actually a darker copper color. A sweet aroma of brett, massive funky brett and some brown sugar. The flavor is a dead on Faro: sweet sugars, leather, wood, funky and light tart lambic elements, caramel, low carbonation. Very nice. Nothing unpleasant here and a Faro is nice to try from time to time. Very drinkable.

DutchDrebus (4679) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2011
Brown/Amber colour. Smells chemical, paint from a spraycan and like a barbershop. Tastes sweet, but watery. Mouthfeel is quite thin and dry.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle at Chris O’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Amber color. Golden raisins, candy sugar, restrained sourness, raspberry and strawberry. Fairly drinklable but has only a faint of sourness (which is negative in this case).

30th July 2011>br>ChrisOs ’Donkey Dork Lord’ Pre-GBBF Tasting. Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Sweetish faro flavours. Sweet vinegar, trace of white head. Little bit of fresh wood. Semi dry finish.

IluvatarMilan (281) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2011
Nice mahogany body, no head. Barnyard aroma, sweaty, not too sour, some alcohol. Very mild taste with spices, cloves, coriander. Body is very thin. Aftertaste is quickly dissappearing, albeit quite pleasant.

Countbeer (5263) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2011
Bottle: Thanks to Benzai for sharing: Small (off) white head turns into a lacing quick, on top of a clear dark orange colored beer. Smells like a pilsner with some good malts and sweets added as well as some bacteria. Taste is more Lambic-ish with sweets, malts and some dried hops. Aftertaste of elderly dried hops with a touch of sour, sweets and wood. Low carbo, tingly mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture.

FatPhil (10702) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 14, 2011
750ml bottle (ChrisO Pre-GBBF2011 "Donkey Dork Lord" Shindig)
Sugary faro aroma. Pleasant tartness, but loads of sugar without being sticky. Simple and drinkable. Pretty good finesse, I doubt many people apart from Girardin or 3F could do something this sweet without making it slick. (And when I drank this, I didn’t know it was Girardin, I only had the beer name.)

Benzai (9929) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2011
Clear dark orange / light amber color. Smell sweet with sour hints and barnyard. Aftertaste earth and ash. Taste sweet, artificial. Carbo and body ok.

Bottle at Chriso Pre GBBF shindig 2011. Sweet faro. It’s a toffeeish thing with some ok sourness

Bottled@The Chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011 "Donkey Dork Lord Edition". Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, wood, caramel and some slight spicy notes. Flavour is sugary, wooden, mild sourness as well as some mildly tart wooden notes. Very nicely balanced and not overly sweet.
