Christian (11893) - 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.

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

thewolf (11589) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 1, 2006
Pours amber with no head, but bubbles sticking to the glass. Smell is fruit. Taste is very sweet and fresh. No alcohol to speak of. Tastes cidery.

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.

Lubiere (11382) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2010
A dark reddish copper faro with a thick moka head. Very nice lambic aroma, with smooth horseblanket, sweet cherries, epsom salts, quite nice In mouth, a sweet candy lambic with cherry candy powder, apple and lactic points, quite nice. 1.73 euro for a 250 mL bottle at Galeries Gourmandes (Auchan) in l’Atrium du Palais des Congrès.
