teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 8, 2016
Draft at the brewery. It pours a rich golden color with a small bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity jammy, sugary, with a slightly sour note throughout. Taste is also medium sweet with notes of caramel, lightly tart and closes bitter. Light to medium bodied with ok carbonation. Overall, not my favourite style.

neongolden (1520) - Linkping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2015
(On cask @ 3 Fonteinen Restaurant, Beersel, Nov 14 2015) Nearly clear deep brown with a big cream coloured cask head and lace, pretty beer. Aroma of caramel, light herbal funk and wood. On the palate, lots of caramel candy sugar, light lemony acidity, candied orange peel, oaky, some of the barnyard funk of a typical 3f buried beneath. Finish is sweet lingering caramel, Bretty barnyard and must, slight herbal astringency that also lasts a long time. Smooth medium body with little carbonation. Sure, its on the sweet side but a pleasant dinner beverage with lambic characters still obvious, and I wager its as good as Faro gets!

The_Osprey (7811) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2015
Tap at Drie Fonteinen restaurant. Dark brown, hazy, big foamy off-white head. Aroma is vinegar, yeast, armpit, boiled sweets. A strange mix of dirt and sweetness. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is demerara, dirty water, some brown sauce, musty finish. Interesting, just too sweet.

Theydon_Bois (18915) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2015
Tap at 3F restaurant, 20/11/15. Chestnut brown with a big old egg shell white head of bubbles that retains well - a real looker of a beer. Nose is sweet candy, mince pie, dried fruits, Xmas cake, lemon drizzle, candied sugars. Taste is full on sucre, marzipan, sweet licks, light balsa wood, dried fruit, caramelised figs, sweet stuff indeed. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet sugary close. Ok for style but overly sweet.

markextrae (4376) - Alingss, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2015
Sample from draft, lighter Amber pour with a white head. Sweet Candy and red fruits upfront. Cloves and a small lambic note shines trough in the end, with Some green apples aswell. Im not a faro fan. But this is pretty nice
