From 25cl bottle. Dark amber clear body with a small white head, almost no lacing. Gingerbread, clove, caramel, raisin in the nose. Heavy cloying sweetness, medium sourness, almost no bitterness. Medium body, creamy, lively, with a long syrupy finish and a back sourness. The Faro is a quite unique beer, some may don’t like it, but I do like it. Give it a try!

12 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a transparent brazen copper color, lively medium carbonation, a thin broken white whisp for a head. Aroma of a wet barrel, yeast, wheat, and some sour apples- perhaps I should have put a little age on it... hits the mouth with light body, malt faint but to be expected, very smooth sugary sensation in the middle with vanilla in the background, finish is tart and smacks you upside your head if you even think about putting it down. Yummy yummy says the tummy!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 14, 2010
THOUGHTS: My first Faro. Smell of a sour burp when opened. Fairly champagne like. A bit dusty, too. I think I will get another one to age. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Corked and capped. Poured a medium to dark, orangey copper with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left left excellent lacing. The aroma had apple cider; moderate barnyard, cheese, cobwebs and dusty yeast; grape, apple and champagne. The initial flavor was sweet, slightly sour and ever so slightly acidic; while the finish was slightly sweet, sour and slightly acidic. There was apple, grape, champagne, sugar water, dusty yeast and sour fruit. The light to medium body was very dry with fairly soft carbonation and a chalky finish.

Faro purchased at Olive Tree Market in OB. Last one. Sweet aroma and taste. Not very sour which was only what I expected. Haven’t had many in this style. Still it was good and I enjoyed it.

Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is sweet of candied sugar, yeast, and some slight barnyard aroma. Flavor is sour up front with the tart fruits, barnyard and the candied sugar. Sourness lingers for awhile. Overall not bad but there are much better lambics out there.

Bottle thanks to llcooldave. Diabetics----Watch out for this beer!!!! Poured a clear, glowing light copper body with a bit of head that left some lacing. Aromas of tartness, citric, white wine, sour, fruity and sour apples. Flavors of sour apples, lightly acetic, medium+ sweetness that overpowers the tart/citric aspect. Active, soft carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Sweet and tart.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Best before Sept. 2012. 4.2% on the label. Nice carbonation in the pour. Looks nice, smells clean and fresh, with some fruit skin and slight oxidation. Tastes moderately sweet, fruity, very slightly sour. Better than I thought it would be - and surprisingly as good as the Lindemans Guezue.

lamas (1548) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle. Slightly different label than that in the picture. A clear amber/ruby pour with a thick antique white head. A strong aroma of balsamic vinegar, Brettanomyces, red wine, sour apples, some candied sugar, and a little wheat in the background. Thin and sparkling on the way down. Much sweeter in the taste than I had anticipated. Lots of apple juice, candied sugar, and caramel upfront. A little wheat and vanilla in the middle. Very tart/sour at the end with a greater presence of Brett and vinegar qualities along with plenty of McIntosh apples, raspberries, and lemons. The finish is slightly dry.

Clear Copper pour, some citrus and apple aroma, not quite as sweet as I expected, very dry and crisp finish. Quite enjoyable, even if the style is nearly impossible to find.

Pours a hazy orange with a large white head. Lots of lacing as it goes down. The smell brings out some citrus, tart grapes and apples, and some malty sweetness. The taste is somewhat sour, but mostly refreshing sweetness. A little bit of earthiness. The body is medium and creamy; overall, this one was quite drinkable, and makes faro a style I’d like to seek out more of. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-04-2009
