fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2003
Amber color. Prickly acetic nose in the beginning; turns to be sweeter and woodier. Quite sweet body, with a wood note. Not impressive, but pleasant sweet drink.

Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and moderate sour. Flavor is quite sweet, moderate sour and moderate acidic. Dry and moderate acidic finish. Gets a little sugary, but all in all a nice faro. 100811

Koelschtrinker (17297) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Etwas süßer Antrunk, der Unterton ist minimal sauer. Der Geuze-Grundton ist anfänglich noch vorhanden, verschwimmt aber nach und nach. Im Mittelteil ist die Süße nun deutlich führend, dadurch wird das Faro etwas künstlicher. Dieser Eindruck verstärkt sich im Abgang deutlich, hier wird das Bier süßer, künstlicher und muffig. Test vom 8.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,10,9,10,9 - 9,05

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle. Deep copper, thin beige head. Fruity and sweet. Sweet toffee aroma, some cherry/strawberry. Sweet, cloying. Really just rather awful

Bottle at home (Noel Cuvelier) - 20/10/12. Clear dark golden with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edges and forms a small lake. Nose has sour tones, peach, grapes, light caramel, burnt sugar, sour/tarte notes. Taste follows, light fruit notes, orange pith, caramel, sugared candy, sour tones. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, leading to a sweet finihs, A little to sweet overall!

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2006
Bottled, 0.25ltr. Golden, with some sediments and no head. Light aroma with both sourness and sugar. Quite fruity, with apples most pronounced. A good deal of sugar in the flavor, with some acidic astringency and some orange-notes. Sweet, sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. Refreshing in the summer-heat, with green apples in the finish. (060704)

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2008
Bottled, alc. 4.2 % (BB 04/2009)
Dark amber color, not much head. Sourish peach nose. Suprisingly peach dominates also flavor. Typical faro - very sugary, but this one has very pleasant acidic finish. Fruity aftertaste. As good as a faro can get!
