12 oz. Bottle. Pours orange-amber with a small, short lived, off-white head and Champaign like carbonation. Aroma is of yeast, malt, brown sugar and barnyard. Full, tangy body. Taste is sweet malt, brown sugar and sour grapes. This brew could be a good substitute for Champaign.

Bottle sample thanks to skinnyguy! Light brown pour, little carbonation and an aroma of slightly sweetened vinegar. Flavor is super sweet brown sugar, slick and lingering sweet malt on the aftertaste. Finally got the faro style rating, but I think itís safe to say this isnít a style Iíd try to go back to again.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 Bottle. Pour is amber in color and clear with a thin head that disapears quickly. Aroma comes off bitter sweet with some caramel and sour fruit. Taste was sweet and sour, but finished wanting more. Palate is thin and fizzy with a creamy dry finish.

Butters (4046) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2011
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.

mansquito (5452) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2011
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...

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 12, 2011
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.

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 canít get enough Faro! 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]
