RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours a slightly darkish burnt orange, clear, with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is definitely lambic-y without punching you in the nose: there’s oak, vinegar, mustard, dust, cheese, and a dash of honey and sugar. Flavor is very sweet with sugar, honey, and the lambic characteristics are light and very much in the background. You can tell there’s still a dry sensation from the oak affecting the mouthfeel, but it’s secondary. Finishes clean and about 80% sticky and sweet with the oaky dry mustard sensation firmly in the background. Light and easy to drink despite the sticky sweet nature, but I can’t help but think this compares to real lambics the way Jolly Ranchers compare to real fruit. Thankfully I tolerate sweetness well. My first Faro, hopefully not my last.

inbirraveritas (1350) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2010
Opálos, rézszínű lambic, melynek vékonyka habja seperc alatt nyomtalanul eltűnik. Szénsavassága igen élénk, a pici buborékok élénken pezsegnek a pohárban. Illata elsőre száraz borra emlékeztett, idővel előbújnak az édes, gyümölcsös jegyek. Csípősen indul, íze édes, gyümölcsös/cukros, aromája savanykás, ecetes, tejsavas. A befejezés édes-savanyú, és csak nagyon enyhén száraz. Igen könnyen iható, és frissítő vadóc.

travita (4418) - Frisco, Texas, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Bottle thanks to Mar. The look is copper in color with a small white head. The taste is sweet, candy, sugary. The smell is wood, butterscotch popcorn, and candy.

deyholla (8123) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear golden red with high carbonation present and a tan head. Aroma has a really funky aroma with wooden and used saddle notes and an undertone of sweet fruits. Flavor is amazingly sweet with a really odd funky finish. Really odd to say the least.

2009 Bottle - Thanks inflatablehair!! - Pours a hazy orange with a small beige head...aroma is apple and pear skins, earthy, dirt....flavour is sour fruit, lemons, with a sticky brown sugar sweetness that follows...light vinegar on the finish, but that is made even more out of place by the sugary backbone...I need to try a real faro to compare...

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2010
Rozsdavörös színe van amiben sejtelmesen hömpölyög egy kis ködös,homályos sűrűbb üledék.A tetején csak éppen hogy valami kis hab keletkezik,ami el is tűnik gyorsan.Illata mint a cefrének összevágott borízű almának amit erjesztés előtt alaposan megcukroztak.Erősen édesen,cukrosan kezdődik,amibe aztán belekeveredik egy fanyar,erősen erjedt,élesztős almás íz.Kicsit olyan mintha egy kis fűszerezett forralt almaborral is felöntötték volna.Utóíze sziruposan édeskés és egy picit ecetes.Érdekes főzet,nekem egy kicsit túl ragadós,cukros.

Vaiz (3834) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2010
Bottle at home. My first Faro. Pours a clear amber color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of brett and sugar with some earth and slightly fruity. Flavor is very sweet sugary with a very mild sourness. It’s like a lambic with sugar water added. Not bad, but a little too sweet for me.

DeanF (1808) - Nunavut, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Pours an attractive amber colour with plenty of head, but it disappears just a little too fast for my liking. Aroma is malts and sugar, some fruity syrup, slight tinniness. Taste is a good mix of hay and cherry, slight orange flavour. Nice bitter lambic finish. Would be near perfect if the aroma was fixed.

boto (1960) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2010
375ml bottle: Purchased at Carrefour. This one pours a dark, hazy apple juice color. There was a small fizzy head that went away quickly, as did the carbonation. The aroma is a bit like sour apples. There are also some floral notes. It has a bit of a candy sweetness to it, along with a sour apple taste. Still, it finishes a bit dry. It is an interesting brew. It is also my first Faro, and will have to pursue others.
