TBone (17529) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2008
Bottled, alc. 4.2 % (BB 04/2009)
Dark amber color, not much head. Sourish peach nose. Suprisingly peach dominates also flavor. Typical faro - very sugary, but this one has very pleasant acidic finish. Fruity aftertaste. As good as a faro can get!

Bottle. Clear amber with small off-white head. Flavour is malt, sweet, little sour, little tart, fruit and syrup.

yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 5, 2006
Bottled, 0.25ltr. Golden, with some sediments and no head. Light aroma with both sourness and sugar. Quite fruity, with apples most pronounced. A good deal of sugar in the flavor, with some acidic astringency and some orange-notes. Sweet, sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. Refreshing in the summer-heat, with green apples in the finish. (060704)

Pours clear amber. Nose and taste of light wood, candi sugar, sweet tart fruit and strawberry. A bit of cream too.

brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 22, 2010
A: The pour is a clear amber color with an intense levely of carbonation but surprisingly little in terms of head. S: The nose is very musty with some odd notes of cork and bread. There is quite a bit of sugary sweetness as well, but I expected that. T: Wow, I was really surprised by the flavor of this. The intense sweetness was the first thing I noticed as this beer is very sugary. There’s also a hint of fruit and for some reason, a bile note on the back end. M: The body was medium with a very high level of carbonation and despite being sweetened, still has a certain level of dryness. D: This beer is really all over the place. I was not at all surprised by the intense sugary character, but the vomit flavor really seemed out of place.

Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2007
Draft at Poechenellekelder, Brussels: Muddy orange with a creamy head. Sweet fruity (peach mainly) & vinous maturted taste. Smooth & soft & very sweet. Low carbonation.

FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 11, 2012
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.

MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
Bottle, 4.2%. Nicely acidic and woody aroma. Hazy amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour is sweet and acidic. Very clean, of course quite sugary. Good fruity acidity. Refreshing.

3.2
Benzai (15599) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2011
I expected this to be awful but it was far from that. Not great, but lets say pretty doable. Nice red / brown color, not the worst smell and taste, ok carbo and body.

3.7
Ferris (15268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle - Dark malts, spices and yeast. Clear effervescent amber. Sweet and mellow malts with some sourness with the spice of the rye. You also get some rotting apple. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
