Bottle at Kulminator. For my first ever faro, I was not sure of what to find. Reddy brown with a thin off-white head. Nose is gueuzey and acetic, fruity and lemony. Strong peach tones. Mouth is sweet, smooth, peachy, gentle. Slightly metallic lingering long sweetness at the end. Little one-dimensional, but very good.

My friend Artem dragged this back from Belgium for me. It pours a thick and murky dirty orange color. Has a small but sticky head. Aroma is orange with sticky sweetness (but not as much most other Faros) with some light spikes and faintly acidic earth (that the lambic part). Taste is sweet but not too strong again, with some granny smith apple skins. Leaves a light sour-orange aftertaste. Least sweetness of the faros I have tried.
375mL bottle, BB 15/NOV/2009 elongated thin Ommegang 10th Anniversary goblet glass.

armando629 (2405) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 0,25 l.Nice deep amber color, minimal but delicious head. Aroma like a barnyard, some fine fruity perfumes, candy sugar.. The flavour is very sweet with a minimal tart, the body is complex.

Notes from 12/16/07. Big thanks to my Secret Santa for the elusive faro style. 375mL bottle, no date. Hazy caramel orange with a thin off-white head. Aroma of sweet overripe cherries, some funk, and earth. fairly sweet with light acidity. Flavor has a moderate amount of wet paper oxidation--still pretty sweet--, though not as much as other beers from the Lindemans family. Cherries make another appearance as well, but otherwise the same. Medium body with low carbonation. Not really sure how to rate it since itís my first faro--not too bad of a beer--Iím just not sure why someone would bastardize a lambic and dump sugar in it.

Amber with tiny head. Sweet aroma with light sour notes. Sweet flavor with caramel, apple and accidic notes. Goes well with my dessert.

This beer completes my styles. Thank you Maria! Aroma of barnyard and a hint of vommit. Pour was a nice dark brown with a one finger off white head. Taste was very weird. Tastes like seltzer water with a cup of sugar mixed in. Way too sweet for me. Very good carbonation. This is so sugary that I feel if I bite down I will feel sugar crystals between my teeth. Not bad.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Aroma is sweet syrupy cherry as well as touch of barnyard funkiness. Light golden color, thick creamy white head. Light earthy and dusty aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet, honeyish and quite earthy with a bit of fruitiness as well. Tartness appears underneath the obvious sweetness. Long Lingering earthy finish.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2008
Bottled. A bit of a disappointment, because itís sweet. Mushed, brown apple aroma (!). A bit bitter. Colour shifting from orage to yellow, big white head. Taste sweet apple juice.

Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours light purple with a white head and a rich fruity smell. Flavor is sweet, a bit too sweet but the finish makes up for it. The finish is rich, with sweet, sour and spicey notes. Very good.

Bottle shared by iowaherkeye. My first Faro. Thanks Joey. Poured a hazy orange color with a slight purple tint. The aroma was fruity with plum, cherry, and spiced pear notes. There was also an earthy, almost wood-like accent. Very sweet, like the other Lindemanís offerings Iíve tried. The flavor, as foreshadowed by the aroma, was also fruit dominated. I tasted mostly cherry and apple. There was also a subdued, but distinct paper-like note that detracted a bit.
