stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Light amber pour with light beige head. Aromas of musty wood, apple, grape, berry and pear. Flavors are in line with the aroma with a sweetness that lingers on the palate.

Corked bottle - slightly cloudy light brown, medium carbonation with little head. Funny aroma - not particularly to my nose. Fine fizz in mouth and on tongue. Similar taste to aroma - not my cup of tea - fruity.

jjsint (1397) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle from Anglia Wine Merchants, Ely. Reddish amber, a bit hazy, with a decent-sized cream-coloured head. Lovely scent of kumquat, apricot, cedar. Pleasantly tart without a funky smell. The first sip is surprisingly sweet, almost artificial tasting. The intense sweetness reacts with, rather than balances, the natural tartness. However this dies down a bit over the course of the bottle, leaving an agreeable sweet/sour taste. Refreshing and well-carbonated palate. It is a nice beer but I would have preferred a less sweet version. I guess this style takes some getting used to.

TorbenJensen (515) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 19, 2015
This is probably the most special beer I have ever tasted. The foam is limited, and the flavor is very difficult to define. It smells a bit of yeast and anything else that I can not completely assess. The taste is only very sweet, but decreases slowly to a slightly sour taste. Finally appears the delicate taste again, and this time I feel that it is perhaps a little apple.

Simonsen (855) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Flaske. Noe uklar ravfarget,moderat karbonert med hvit tynn skumrand. Smaker stikkelsbær,druestein,sitrus,kandissukker,gjær. En meget god faro, men føler kanskje den har en litt kunstig syrlig smak siden den er tilsatt ascorbinsyre ?

smcolw (600) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Amber color; clear. No head at all. Candy sugar aroma with a slight sourness. The flavor is sugary; no sign of the sourness. This is also a full bodied beer with nearly no carbonation. Very much like double bock and less like a lambic. A pretty good beer although it is contrary to the usual taste I like.

Small head. Modest aroma of sweet fruits and sugar. Sour with candy sugar contrast. Maybe some wood.

PapaVillum (659) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
37,5 cl, flaske, 4,5 % ABV, BB: 02/02/17, købt i Casino i Nice i Sydfrankrig, 13. juli 2015. Let og knap så tydelig aroma af stikkelsbær og grapefrugt. Måske lidt kælder-aroma fra gærnuancerne og en umiskendelig lugt af noget gammelt og hengemt. Mørkerosa Lambic style: Faro med en minimum skumtop, som hurtigt svinder til kant og overflade. Første indtryk er en meget sød- og syrlig øl, men også med en vedhæftende bitterhed, der dog spiller en mindre rolle. Sødmen holder ved, omend det syrlige lægger spor på ens tænder. Smagsopsummering: Kraftig sødme, let syrlig og let bitter. Middel fyldig krop med en karbonering på et middel niveau. Klæbrig konsistens. Afslutningen er sødlig, let bitter, ganske kort og tør. Min - så vidt vides - første Faro, og tvivlen nager: skal det være så sødt? Umiddelbart ikke lige mon kop øl, men det åbner blot interessen for at prøve flere.

McWorta (995) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 9, 2015
Relatively clear amber colour with a medium sized frothy off white head. Aromas of cane sugar, some hay and nut notes develop. Somewhat lively, soft texture, medium body. Pretty sweet and overpowering the subtle acidity, a bit out of balance. Sweet lasting finish.
