Rasmus40 (20902) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2011
Clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty and moderate sour. Flavor is quite sweet, moderate sour and moderate acidic. Dry and moderate acidic finish. Gets a little sugary, but all in all a nice faro. 100811

fiulijn (20516) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2003
Amber color. Prickly acetic nose in the beginning; turns to be sweeter and woodier. Quite sweet body, with a wood note. Not impressive, but pleasant sweet drink.

Koelschtrinker (20416) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Etwas süßer Antrunk, der Unterton ist minimal sauer. Der Geuze-Grundton ist anfänglich noch vorhanden, verschwimmt aber nach und nach. Im Mittelteil ist die Süße nun deutlich führend, dadurch wird das Faro etwas künstlicher. Dieser Eindruck verstärkt sich im Abgang deutlich, hier wird das Bier süßer, künstlicher und muffig. Test vom 8.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,10,9,10,9 - 9,05

Bottle at home (Noel Cuvelier) - 20/10/12. Clear dark golden with a thin off white head that soon clears to the edges and forms a small lake. Nose has sour tones, peach, grapes, light caramel, burnt sugar, sour/tarte notes. Taste follows, light fruit notes, orange pith, caramel, sugared candy, sour tones. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, leading to a sweet finihs, A little to sweet overall!

Bottle. Deep copper, thin beige head. Fruity and sweet. Sweet toffee aroma, some cherry/strawberry. Sweet, cloying. Really just rather awful

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 Bottle. Small head that fades quite fast. Color is dark amber and a wee bit hazy. Taste is caramel and acidic. Good stuff. Original rating March 21st 2006 7/2/7/3/14. Rerated May 16th 2012 7/3/7/3/16.

mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2010
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.

3.6
Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2009
Brownish amber color with a thick head. Appley aroma with just a hint of lambic leather. Sweet, but with a grapefruity bitterness. Refreshing lemony character, almost minty. Good faro.
