Yorker (2115) - Holstebro, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2017
37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy amber with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are brett, vinegar, and sugar - with a slightly tart finish. DavidSvinth (367) - DENMARK - SEP 22, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2017 2009 årgang. Mikkeller bar i Aarhus.
Flad og næsten uden skum. Orange.
Duft: funk, brændt popcorn. Insisterende.
Smagen er sur og sød. Mere kompleks end fx Lindemans Faro. rami_pl (4778) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 30, 2017

Fajowe slodziutkie, lekko dzikie, jasne owoce, dooobre, 3.7 Ysok02 (1910) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2017
Un faro frais et acidulé avec de la tension et une très bel équilibre. Un faro de soif; JefVerstraete (3739) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - AUG 26, 2017
Sample @ Brussels Beer Festival. Cola like colour brown, no foam. Sweet, tart, lemony. Nice faro.

Tap at BXL festival. Murky light brown with a few bubbles. Sugary, apple juice, light dank hay, sweet malts, apricot, quite herbal. Over medium sweet, light bitter and very light sour. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Quite nice actually. neongolden (1991) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2017
(375ml 2009-label bottle from Mikkeller Webshop) Pours a clear copper colour with a small smattering of whitish bubbles, no lace. Aroma of caramel apples, brown sugar, wood, tart citrusy underpinnings, moderately high funk, rather sweet overall. Flavour is pretty sweet, even for style, quite a lot of brown sugar, sweet tea, cola-like, red baking apple, sweet-sour candied citrus, wood, earthy funk. Finish and aftertaste remain pretty sweet, only light drying from the wood. Medium bodied with quite soft sparkling carb. Faro is weird, I feel, and this is no different. Feels kind of heavy on the brown sugar, but it’s nice enough for lambic soda anyway. Mesjasz (1726) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 6, 2017
Bottle. Aroma is light funky, candy sugar, floral. Taste is medium sweet, light sour. Level of sugar is to high, lack of ballance. phaleslu (10889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 10, 2017
750 ml bottle brought back from Belgium and shared by JStax- thanks again, Jeremy! Bottled January 2009, although the label also said 37.5 cl, so I’m not sure it’s to be fully trusted. Probably close, if not right on. It pours a cloudy copper with a finger of off-white head that settles into a ring and film. It smells like a musty gueuze, but the flavor is so different. Earth, oak, tea, tangy and lightly tart muddled fruit, dusty grains, and tons of residual sugars. Medium-plus bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, lightly tart, and slightly funky mouthfeel. I forgot what a weird style this is. JStax (7306) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 8, 2017
750 ml bottle shared with phaleslu. The beer is a clear copper with a creamy white head of foam. The aroma has a musty, earthy acidic character to it. Upon the taste, it is something entirely different. It’s like a brown sugary sweet beer. Some acidity comes through, but the sweetness is what comes through the strongest. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
