2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2016 Sampled at the Richmond Gather XIII. Clear golden pour with no head. Backsweetned and somewhat tart. But not what i expected at all. Definitely not a geueze. Sampled again in Japan. Crazy backsweetend. Aroma is the only good thing. Flavor is absurdly sweet apple juice. Really not that good.

(Sample Date: 1/15/2011 Source:Other) Earthy sugary aroma. Very clear dark golden with little head. Very sweet and earthy with a light sourness. Fruity but not really a specific fruit. Finish is quite sweet and earthy.

Bottle courtesy of MaltDawg or Kinz or Butters. Thanks whoever you are? Pours a clear copper with nearly no head. Aroma of tart notes with a lot of herbal earthy fungus going on. The taste is tart up front with a earthy, sugar finish. Medium bodied.

New Beer Distributors, NY 12oz ($5.50): Pours a reddish color with a white head. Tart, fruity aroma. Taste is really sour, especially towards the finish. Pretty sweet, definitely sweeter than the last lambic that I had.Very pleasant mouthfeel contracts your mouth, because of the intense sour taste. I like it, but I guess I like all lambics...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Pours a clear copper color with a nice "small creamy head". The nose is nicely cobbwebby with some light tart notes but quite a bit sweet and malty. Big sweet cloying flavor with some nice chewy caramel notes. Subtle yeast and light tart notes in the finish. A little too straight laced for my tastes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yay, my 2nd Faro!! Bottle. Pours a clear light dirty orange with a thick off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of sweet sugars and sweet barley malt (basically it smells like the other Lindemans but without a particular fruit preponderance). Flavor is similar with sweet brown sugar and some crackery malt. Nice, sweet, and tasty. I just can’t get enough Faro!

Bottle. Aroma a little funky with light fruits and some pale malt. Flavor very sweet with tart edges. I have no basis for comparison, but on its own, a simple, refreshing drink for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized fizzy white head. The aroma is very sweet up front, some fruit notes, tart notes come through, not really what I was expecting. The flavor opens with a big sweetness, adds a combination of fruits (peach, apple), slight cherry tartness and a strange finish (creamed corn?). This was strange and apparently not my thing.
