Shared 12 oz. bottle. Amber with a white head and plenty of particles floating around. Aroma is tart, vinous, fruity and sweet. Taste is sour, fruity, malty, vinegar, and very sweet. Has an exceptionally sweet candied sugar finish. Overall, it’s a bit strange.

ClubGonzo (5220) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 30, 2016
Bottle from Humlen Ølutsalg, Bergen. Pours a near-clear light amber body with a small white head. Aroma is bretty funk tones, dark sugars, grains, wine cork, nuts, hay and hints of lactic sourness and lemon zest. Taste is cola bean, lemon zest, dark sugars and hints of funk, caramel and minerals. Light body, high carbonation. A strange mixture of sweet and sour, dark nutty sugary tones and bretty funk notes. Interesting, and quite likeable.

darbeer75 (316) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2016
Aroma: mostly malt with only small a note of sour fruitiness; Appearance: dark amber with significant amount of particulates floating around; I’m a little scared; very thin head that dissipates quickly; Taste: basically like cherry kool-aid; extreme sweetness with a sour finish; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: not sure if it’s the style or the beer, but definitely not my favorite.

Deep amber, cristal clear, tiny white head, which is like you’d expect from sour beer. In aroma it has some lambic sourness, but also there is a lot of sweetness, more even suggary than malty. Smells nice, quite pleasant. In taste it’s very weird. First it’s so sweet, like a sweet soda with addition of even more sugar. But than the sweetness completely disappears, like in one moment. In that moment it feels like quite a decent lambic. But unfortunately the sweetness is still on your lips and on your thong, which makes it sweet again. The mouth feel is ok, but only on the sour phase. In other moments it’s just to sticky, it’s not that refreshing as I was thinking it’ll be. My first faro, weird beer.

PhilosophyGuy (258) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 16, 2016
UPDATED: APR 22, 2016 Barwa złoto-pomarańczowa z różnymi jesiennymi przebłyskami. Piana bardzo ładna, biała, drobnopęcherzykowa, wolno opadająca, średnia, niski lacing. Mocno nagazowane. W aromacie słodycz i dzikość, pachnie kwaśno, jakby wodą z ogórków kiszonych. W smaku jest słodkie i kwaśne jednocześnie – coś jak soczek wiśniowy (imo) dosładzany. Bardzo pijalne.

impuritylaw (57) - Freibierg, GERMANY - APR 13, 2016
Aroma of sour fruit, citrus, wood, must. In taste again wood, must, with tartness of old apples and sugary sweetness. Interesting beer that is nicely balanced between sour- and sweetness, though a little bit rough and artificial in sweetness.

Rating #1125, flaske fra The Bottle Shop i Brügge

Min 1125de rating, men endnu er der øltyper jeg ikke har læsket min gane i, og en af dem, er faro. Det bliver spændende at se, hvad der byder sig. Øllet er let tåget teaktræsfarvet og med et hvidt, boblende skum, der forsvinder hurtigt. Syrlig duft som forventet og underligt nok en smule champignon og kælder/gær. Syrlig smag med en del røde bær og blommer, samt masser af sødme, og tidligere nævnte fugtige kælder. Rigtig lækker smag egentlig - og dejligt forfriskende - især da jeg havde frygtet noget geuze-lignende, som jeg bestemt ikke er begejstret for (i øvrigt den eneste øltype jeg bevidst går uden om, udover berliner weisse). Blød og tiltalende mundfølelse, der ikke er helt tynd. En positiv overraskelse, og jeg vil prøve at finde nogle flere faroer, selvom det ikke er en øltype man falder over hver dag.
