Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Mild nose with hints of sour cream, earthlyness, grass. A bit of sour sweetness in the flavor with vaint notes of wood and fruit. Mild, drinkable and rather forgetable too. Back on 100% faros :)

RasmusOtt (1489) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 12, 2015
Bottle shared @ dangerous bottleshare #8 . Pours hazy amber with a bright tan head. Aroma is pretty rural with some sour apples, funky brett, weak vinegar, horse blanket and some more sugary and malty notes as well. The taste has some weak cheese, weak sugar, sour apples, sweeter caramel notes, ginger, vinegar and dry wood. Faro has never been my style but this was drinkable indeed!

Vestergaard (831) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 10, 2015
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #8, thanks to Bursprak. Pours a dark amber with a medium sized, white head. Aroma is pretty weak with some sweet, white grapes, slight vinegar, slight cheese. Taste is pretty sweet with some funky and more tart notes. Very easy drinking lambic, and the balance is actually pretty good!

deanso (6321) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
Sample courtesy of Kermis at my 20th anniversary in NL party. Thin creamy white head. hazy golden pour. Balanced sweetness and sourness. Not bad at all.

Alengrin (3019) - BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2014
A kind of faro, undoubtedly blended with their Ulrich Lager. Creamy, sticky, snow white head, colour pure amber, warm glow. Sweaty lambic aroma, sherry, hay, fennle seed, strawberry, mango, white pepper, pale malts, cinnamon. Bit sugary sweetness in onset, aromatic herbs (star aniseed?), smooth and somewhat thin mouthfeel, light acidity, subtle lambic character, clearly diluted by a ínormalí beer, light bitterness in the end. A curiosity and not much more than a variation on Girardin Faro, not well-suited for the diehard fans of authentic lambics, but still lambic-like enough to be enjoyable.

Oakes (13271) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Hazy light amber, sweet front, caramel, touch herbal, and thatís a lot of the taste. Bland, just a touch of faro character, but fruity and almost sodalike.

mcberko (8691) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
750mL bottle, sent from mista (thanks a lot, Geoff), pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nose brings out funk, light sugar, a little vinegar and more funk. Flavour certainly is interesting, with unusual notes, with sugar, an herbal quality, pickled vegetables, and some very subtle funk. The sweetness is artificial tasting -- must be the sucralose thatís used here. Not the most elegant faro, but itís quite intriguing in its uniqueness.

JulienHuxley (4026) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper pour with thin bubbly white head. Aroma is malty, nice funk, more than I would have expected from such a blend, lambic-y notes. Taste is sweet, light wet hay, very mild funk, caramel, interesting. Palate is sweet, med bodied with good carbonation. Not half as bad as I thought quite drinkable faro.
