Clear light brown with a small head. Aroma is mainly sour with notes of fresh green acidic fruits/berries. Flavor is a mix of sourness balances with a good chunck of sugar, with a very acidic sidenote and finish. Quite refreshing and very drinkable for a Lambic

Bottle. A sweet, yeasty, fruity aroma (I couldn’t put my finger on which fruits were there). Taste has some hop and malt, with an underlying lambic fruit flavour. A sweet, fruity, acidic finish. Not too sweet. Moderate carbonation. Fairly refreshing and easy to drink.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Dovetail. Pours a pale amber with quickly dissipating head. Sweet aroma of artificial strawberries. Taste of raw sugar cane with notes of peach, passion fruit and strawberry. Sickly sweet and syrupy. Dry, waxy finish. The acidic edge is neatly disguised by the sugar. Not THAT bad, but far from great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours to a deep amber color, with a rocky head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is inviting, with good aromas of sweet malt, and estery fruit. The palate is sweet and malty, with lots of good malt flavor, paired with nice candy sugar sweetness, and a back drop of sour fruity flavor. This beer finishes with more good sweet and fruity flavors up front, then ends with some sour fruitness that lingers. Nice beer, very enjoyable, very food friendly. I like the addition of candy sugar in this beer. It gives it a really nice sweet/sour character making it a very enjoyable beer drinking experience.

Shared a bottle of this with my family after Christmas dinner. Pale amber. sugary sweet, with a hint of sourness. It’s always a treat to get a chance to try this style.

Lucky to find this on tap (and on special, 3 Euros) at Clichy’s Tavern in the Montemarte neighborhood of Paris. Pours a reddish brown with a creamy head. Smells of sour green apples and brown sugar, caramel. Everything about this beer is sweet. Thin bodied. Like spiced cider, with a bit of carbonation and candied prunes. Has some Belgian dusty basement quality too it. Not enjoyable at all, and the only beer from this fine establishment that I did not finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Warm amber with a red hue and a creamy, but moderate head. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of candy sugar, caramel and a hint of nuts. The flavour is nicely balanced between acidity and a sweet/sour finish, and the candy sugar never becomes cloying or pushy. It’s a really nice faro.

I don’t really know what faro is but here goes. Standard fruit beer smell, feel and taste. Flavours are characterised by an earthy, woody, barely note. Sweet, slightly tart finish.
