My first experience with a Faro beer. And i must say, nice drink! It has a bit of a funky fruit flavor going on together with some candy sugar, but all well balanced and refreshing. Nice.

suurjuust (1879) - ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2015
Slightly hazy copper beer. Retentive tan head. Nose is oak, acidity, fruity notes, mild yeasty funk. Flavor is crisper than the nose would suggest, less acidity, malty notes, hops and mild yeast in the finish. Lingering fruity acidity. Pretty nice.

Moravius (864) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 16, 2015
Flasche (375 ml), wohl von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin-Wedding. - Rotbraun, trüb; reichlich sahniger beigefarbener Schaum. - Nase herb-muffig-säuerlich wie ein echtes Lambic, nur etwas milder, im Hintergrund schwache Karamelsüße. - Antrunk mild säuerlich und schwach kellerig-herb. Die Lambic-Aromen sind eher dezent; muffige Herbe und Säure reiben sich mit mild süßlichem Karamelmalz und Apfelschale. Perlend rezent, weich im Mund. Im Abgang klaffen die beiden Seiten dieses Bieres am deutlichsten auseinander, mit unrunden, süßsäuerlichen, etwas abgestandenen Aromen. - Interessante Erfahrung, diese gesüßte Lambic-Variante. Muß ich trotzdem kein zweites Mal trinken.

Ysok02 (398) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2015
Un faro à la belle robe rousse, belle mousse. Nez assez marqué par le lambic sur un fond de caramel. Bouche tout en tension, une belle acidité et une longue finale acidulée.

JStax (3820) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2015
375 ml bottle. The beer is a hazed ruby color with a white head of foam. Good retention. The wroma has dark fruits, sour berry, musty straw, and more of a mild sweetness. The raste is predominantly sour, and is actually enjoyable. Medium body and higher cadbonation. One of the better faros i have tried.

Alusmamuts (1064) - LATVIA - JUL 9, 2015
Amber clear with medium off-white head. Mld sour aroma. Soft sweetsaour fruity taste, well abalnced sweetness, not too much, followed by medium strong grapefruit-type bitterness. The latter remains in the aftertaste with some fruity notes.

Erzengel (5638) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 7, 2015
* Leckeres, dunkles Bier. Leichte Säure mit einer angenehmen caramelligen Süße. Sehr süffiger Körper, frisch und rund. Lecker aber vielleicht ein Hauch zu viel Kandis.

Bottle; pours a caramel brown with a white head; sweet aroma of caramel, honey, sugar, and some vanilla and fruit hints; taste is sweet with caramel, sugar, honey, and vanilla; finish is more sweet than bitter; was not sure what to expect with my first Faro but this was pretty good

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2015
Clear brown colour with small off-white head. Sour fruity aroma with some sweetness and hints of mint (?). Flavour is mild sourness and some sugar sweetness. Slowly sourness is overruled by sugar. Short aftertaste.z
