250ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) BB 2010-11, Drunk 2012-09
Very pleasant sweet aroma, like the ’golden nuggets’ breakfast cereal i had when I was a kid (that probably means there’s some butterscotch). Clear bold rich orange, brief head. Full sweet palate, gentle carbonation. Sweat breakfast-cerealy honey-covered wheat-flake taste. Rather nice. Finish is mostly the sweetness, and to be honest, I shouldn’t give this 4, but it was very nice in the mouth, so I have to. Overall, a remarkably drinkable modern faro, better than some of the more traditional ones I’ve had, to be honest. However, that’s because I think faro is intrinsically a modern sweet thing, not a traditional sour thing. If you want to stick sugars into your old lambics, then do them via the medium of young lambic, and give me a geueze. If, however, you want a luscious sweet drink, then make one of these.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2012 375mL bottle, pours amber orange with a small head. Aroma of candied sugar and subtle sourness. Flavour is very sweet candied sugar, quite cloying, coating the teeth with sugary residue. Not too bad.

Cloudy light orange, big head. Great sour apple flavour with orange / lemon, perhaps a bit too sweet otherwise. Cracking.

Benzai (12596) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2011
I expected this to be awful but it was far from that. Not great, but lets say pretty doable. Nice red / brown color, not the worst smell and taste, ok carbo and body.

Christian (12573) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
Dark golden with a small head. Fresh aroma with lots of lemon, and perhaps some metal? Sweet flavour with some fruity acid underneath. Refreshing, but a little sweet for my tastes.
