KansaiBeerLvrs (3796) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2015
New Year’s beer, first of 2016! Pouring a deep amber with a beige head of foam the aroma is tart, acidic but with soft sweet sugary marshmallowish notes. Medium to full mouthfeel but with a light dry finish. The taste is oaky, tart, candy sweet tarts with some malty caramel and lemon drops. Best bottled Faro I’ve had but to appreciate this style you need to have it fresh on draft.

SkillsFactory (368) - ITALY - DEC 21, 2015
Tra il dorato carico e l'ambrato, riflessi dorati, leggermente velata, schiuma bianca non molto persistente. Aroma di leggero stallatico, polvere, uva bianca, leggermente lattica ed acidula. Al palato inizialmente leggero stallatico, uva bianca ed acidula, successivamente leggermente astringente con un amaro di frumento misto ad erbaceo e note legnose. Corpo leggero, carbonazione medio-bassa, leggermente oleosa; non molto dolce per essere un Faro, abbastanza equilibrata con una propensione verso l'amaro.

37,5cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks! Pours slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Mild, funky aroma with barnyard, earthy notes and caramel. Medium to moderate sweet, surprisingly balanced with a nice acididty. Funky and refreshing.
