Amber apple juice colored pour with a thin white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is beyond funky, tart, sour like a punch in the nose, but in a good way. Flavor was unexpectedly sweet after that nose. Candi-sugar and malt with some tart funky background. You really get a sense of why this is a young unblended Lambic. I wanted to age it.

Bottle from Lone Hill Liquors.  Clear amber appearance with a lasting one plus finger whitish head.  The aroma is dominated by apple and vinegar with slight funk and a little sweetness.  Sweet caramel malt, really not much tartness although it is very acetic.  Big on apple and red wine vinegar, maybe a little oak.  Cidery. Medium bodied with an interesting mouthfeel from the vinegar notes.  Overall this is the lesser of the two faros I’ve had, but a fine beer still I guess.

Pours a clear copper in the glass. Funky ripe apple aroma which was somewhat pleasurable. Flavor was not as sweet as I expected. Some pear flavor followed by a citrus tang & a dry finish. Overall, it’s drinkable. It’s nice to have tried but not my style.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle Pours a clear amber with a bubbly white head. The head leaves quickly and leaves spotty lacing at best. Aroma is strong hints of acid, some sweet candy, fruits, and malts. Has a light carbonation. The flavor is pretty good. A little too sweet for me but really drinkable. has a medium body. The finish is good and the aftertaste lingers for some time. Not really my style but good.

Very clear beer with a medium to large head. Taste is a sweet apple with a hint of cherries. Long-lingering aftertaste.

adnielsen (10445) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Tasted from a 355 mL (12 oz) bottle purchased in Boulder, Colorado. Light head with copper/caramel colored body. Big nose that’s a lot like a red wine- acidic and alcoholic. Creamy mouthfeel with a sweet , creamy body initially. Acidic, berry-like flavor (blackberry?) that’s sour but not overwhelmingly sour.

Bottle. Pours a clear ruby hued brown with a thin white head. Funky barnyard up front, bretty and woody. Quite sweet, soda like really, but not overly cloying. Really just like a slightly sour soda, with lemony acid, a good amount of sweet malt, and a touch of funk. Interesting, and a good deal better than I was expecting. Finishes up with some gentle lingering acid, and residual sugar.

Thanks Bill. The beer pours to a really hazy deep brassy body with a thicker white head. The aroma is sweet and sour funky star fruit and jack fruit. The flavor is sweet, but not overly so. Some sweet candi sugar and fruity base of slightly funky acidic fruits. Generic fruitiness but good flavor overall. The palate is pretty sweet but has a good texture.

Pours clear amber. Nose and taste of light wood, candi sugar, sweet tart fruit and strawberry. A bit of cream too.
