Bottled, alc. 4.2 % (BB 04/2009)chrisv10 (17426) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2011
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.

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.

250ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi) BB 2010-11, Drunk 2012-09MiP (15667) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
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.
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. 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. 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.
