It’s made from malt, wheat, hops, water, yeast. Candy sugar is added before the bottling takes place. It is a clear, light red colored faro lambic with a small, creamy head.

375ml bottle courtesy of fiver29. My first of the style and last style I needed to try, so thanks John! Pours hazy reddish amber with a thin off-white head. The nose is sweet fruit and light funk. The taste is sugary sweet fruit for the most part, almost like a fruit flavored soda, with just a smidge of funk in the finish. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Thanks again John!

bottle - Pours yellow-orange and mostly clear with one finger, foamy head and a bubbly body. It smells of candi sugar and fruit accented malt. The taste is sweet candi sugar overlaying an earthy lambic funk. It probably won’t blow you away, but I gather that faros are session beers and it fits that role well.

Ok, so this should give me a rating for the faro style. Huge thanks to Nicholas for bringing me a couple of bottles of this. Good guy. Pours a rather muddy, brown color with a decent head that never fully dies. Tons of sweet sugar and sugary berries in the nose. Too sweet? Quite possibly. The taste is also overwhelmed by sweetness, with touches of dark berries trying to peek out from the candi sugar/brown sugar sweetness. Notes of raisins. Super sweet. If you know what you are getting into with the style, this is a fun beer. But...if you don’t like sweet, you will hate this beer. Also, almost no funk noted here...disappointed in that.

[Bottle] shared by skyview. Pours a hazy gold with a small effervescent head. Aroma is sweet, slightly tart, some vanilla, and not a whole lot of funk. Flavor is sweet and sugary, slightly tart, some vanilla, and a quick finish.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2009
Pours dark amber (morning urine) with absolutely no head. Still lots of carbonation, though. Heavy, sweet aroma. Nice fresh tartness without being mouthpuckering, and very sweet which will not appeal to some. I like sweets.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Fairly common here (south of france) on draught. Tart, fruity (apply) aroma. Sweet, tart and fruity flavour, no puckering, a clear hit of caramel. Thoroughly refreshing. I’ll take it any day over the yellow lagers everybody else in the bar seems to consider refreshing.

Bottle. Browny orange of colour, hazy with thin head. Sweet aroma of candy sugar and malts.Taste is very sweet, somewhat sticky with some yeast at the end. Not bad, even though I find it a bit too sweet.

Tmoney99 (11475) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2009
Bottle with cork. Poured dark copper color with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good barley wheat & yeast aroma. Medium body with tingly texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy sweet fruity flavor with a solid fruit and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout lambic.

Bottle, 4.2%. Nicely acidic and woody aroma. Hazy amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour is sweet and acidic. Very clean, of course quite sugary. Good fruity acidity. Refreshing.

Received a 375ml bottle via trade with MrBunn. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of sweet candi sugar, pears, a hint of peach and wintergreen. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of overly sweet pears, wintergreen, some tart cherries, and mild spice. Finish continues the sweet characterwith some yeast and tart fruit after the finish. A pleasant surprise for a faro.
