Davros (1947) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 23, 2009
Pours deep amber with a medium-sized head showing great persistence and leaving some lacing. Nice tangy, funky aroma with some goaty notes, light fruit (pears, peaches) and some acidic citrus. A hint of cheesy aroma, but faint enough so as to not detract too much from the overall experience. Very sweet taste, lots of sugary confectionery. Some goaty notes, very mild acidic character, and finishes with a just noticeable bitterness. The sweetness is a little too intense for me. Light body and carbonation. For a beer this sweet the carbonation really needs to be higher.

gorditoabd (624) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle with big thanks to MrBunn for making sure I got a hold of this style. Pours an odd little tannish yellow, with very minimal head. Aroma is of sour, fruity funk, and that’s from a small distance! Sour green apples, lemon peel, and cherries all assault my tongue on the first taste. Very sweet to balance the sour. Carbonation is middling, and mouthfeel is a bit on the weak side. Wouldn’t drink a lot of this, but it’s a nice change-up, and I appreciate the chance to try it. Thanks Bunn!

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle. Pour is a deep mahogany with minimal head. Aromas are quite sweet with some sourness. Flavours are very sweet with lots of candi sugar. Balanced somewhat by some labic sourness. Mouthfeel is spot on and overall whilst very sweet still a great beer.

Avengedpoet (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Popped the cap with no apparent carbonation. Poured vigorously to generate some minimal bubbling; pours a turbid brown/red with a thin white film, no real head. Aroma has some complex sourness in the background, but it is overshadowed by the back-sweetening. Same goes for the taste. You can tell there was an interesting beer back behind there, but it is extremely over-sweetened on top of that. Pretty much what I expected (except actually a little carbonated) - lackluster, but interesting style to try.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Pours a reddish brown with a small white head. Aroma is cidery vinegary and candi sugar. Flavor is sourness masked with sweet candi sugar, wood, fruits, yeasts, apple cider. Odd beast.

phaleslu (6517) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Bottle from The Party Source. This was my first faro and I might have to try it again. Aroma of dark fruit juice, sugar, candy. Flavor of sugar, dark fruit juice, malts, candy, and apples. Light body, heavily carbonated, sweet, tart, and almost bitter and sour.

SrSilliGose (3259) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 28, 2009
Thanks Phaleslu for this tricky to come by style. First faro. Notes of fruit juice, earth, medicine, cranberry. Didn’t really care for this. Too much bandaidy sweetness.

NosirIwont (1964) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle. 6 months past ‘best before’. Thanks to Enjoyit. Pours a hazy golden light brown with a white head. Nice lacing. Sweet, acidic aroma. A bit dusty. Flavour is quite sweet, tart and dusty. Notes of dried fruits behind the sweetness. Sweet, sugary, bitter finish with wine-like notes. My first faro, and the sweetness had me a bit surprised, but it wasn’t cloying or anything. Quite nice. 18-09-09.
