250 ml bottle. Clear reddish orange colour, very small white head. Sweet aroma of malts and fermented fruit. Sweet but acidic flavour of apple and berries. Slightly watery. Not very pleasant.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Bottle from the bier palace in Belgium. Clear, reddish color with mall white head. Aroma is super sweet candy with a mild tartness. Sweet cherry and red apple come out in the flavor with a tad bit dirtiness, soft tang as well. Watery with slight acidity and light carb. Drinkable but undesirable at the same time, way too sweet for my palate.

tlind2 (1130) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2009
250 ml bottle. Amber color, low off-white head. Sweet-sour aroma. Initially sweet taste that picks up some sour tang along the way as well as some oaky notes. Sugary finish. Medium body, high carbonation. A bit too sweet for my palate.

Bottle shared by oldstylecubsfan. Todd, thanks a lot! Pours a sorta hazy amber with not much a head. Nose has some sweetness and some mild tartness. Flavor is a bit sweeter overall. Faro is pretty good, but i’d rather drink gueuze or fruit-lambic.

Thanks OldStyleCubFan for sharing. The pour is copper amber with a thin fizzy white head. The nose is herbal, leafy, sweet, corn, no tartness, very sweet and sugary. The flavor is sweet, caramely, earhty and herbal as opposed to tart and acidic, mild tartness, tastes more like an oud bruin than a lambic.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Bottle shared at the Carolina Crew tasting by OldStyleCubFan, the Belgian Food Lion beer ninja - thanks, Todd! I agree with my homies that this one wasn’t up to the level of the earlier Faros and sours, but I still found it enjoyable. It was drier and more metallic than earlier entries, and was more one-dimensionally sugary. Decent.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Similar to Lindemans Gueze (not the Cuvee Rene), this has weird flavors that don’t do it for me. Odd sweetness and a flavor that makes me think of paper and paste. But as this is a faro, add sweet caramel to that taste. I just don’t like this.

Once again thanks to Todd for sharing this one! Cloudy dark gold pour with a green apple aroma. Nice flavor consisting of apples and ginger. Dry, slightly acidic finish

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2008
Hazy dark golden, small firm pale head. Mildly sour aroma, with old apples, little funk, wood and sugar. Flavor starts with lambic sourness, wood and dried fruitiness. Finishes candi sugary sweet. Quite pleasant actually, most of its lambic characters are still there. Sweet, but not overly so.
