25cl bottle from madsberg - thanks Mads! Best by 290808. Pours like dark apple juice, thin white head. Funky, lightly tart, sweet nose, apple and wood. Flavor follows the nose, rather dry. Nice!

I like this a lot, even though I am not a big fan of lambics. Pours with a small, white, fizzy head that lasts and produces some lacing. Darkish golden body. A nice balanced funk in the nose with apples, wood, some fresh cut grass and spices. Taste is quite sweet, like a ton of sugar was added to lemon juice and cider. A bit of butteryness when it comes to temperature. Dry mouth, like champagne, with delicate bubbles.

I tried this beer on February 29, 2008 at íThe Beer Bistroí in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent dark red with a thin white head. The aroma was fruity, with very little if any hints of malt or hops. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied, and very champagne like. The flavour also had a champagne feel, and was very sweet with some subtle sour hints to balance out the sweetness.

250 ml - the Beer Bistro (Toronto)
Pours an Amber/Ruby hue with a nice rim of champagne bubbles. From there, it is all sweet - the aroma, the flavor and the thick syrup finish. One to close the night, as the palate will be affected by this one all night. There is a nice carnelized (kinda lightly burned sugar) element that is nice to this.

TBone (13637) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2008
Bottled, alc. 4.2 % (BB 04/2009)
Dark amber color, not much head. Sourish peach nose. Suprisingly peach dominates also flavor. Typical faro - very sugary, but this one has very pleasant acidic finish. Fruity aftertaste. As good as a faro can get!

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - FEB 10, 2008
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 (2438) - 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.
