MiP (13597) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
Bottle, 4.2%. Nicely acidic and woody aroma. Hazy amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour is sweet and acidic. Very clean, of course quite sugary. Good fruity acidity. Refreshing.

yngwie (13516) - 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)

Theis (13373) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2006
Bottle at home alone. Not sad or pathetic, just home alone !! Amber color, a nonlasting white head. Aroma: Honey, a little gooseberry, but mostly sweet. Taste: Very sweet, dry, not very sour. Reminds me of eating a bag of sour candy.

TBone (12545) - 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!

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Brownish amber color with a thick head. Appley aroma with just a hint of lambic leather. Sweet, but with a grapefruity bitterness. Refreshing lemony character, almost minty. Good faro.
