375ml green bottle, corked and capped. Reddish amber pour, clear, thin white head. Aroma is dusty, slightly funky with sour lemons. Flavour is sugary, sweet, light lemony, sour notes in the background. Faint sour aftertaste. Medium sticky body, light body and carbonation.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5220) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz green corked bottle this beer poured a dark golden-amber color with a huge yellow-white head that faded quickly. The aroma was sweet and tart with notes of sugar, lemon and yeast. The flavor was tart, yeasty and sugary with notes of cranberry and lemon. The finish was long, sweet, sour and sugary with a hint of apricot. Medium body. Tasty.

alobar (2992) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head. Aroma of berries-raspberries, yeast, brown sugar. Flavor is largely white grapes, berry, sugar, and some yeast. First one ever. Okay offering.

obguthr (4373) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Finally, I get to try a faro! It smells tart with currants discernible. Clear copper, headless, still. Sweet and tart, but quite a bit more on the tart side. Currants initially, with very distinct musty pear notes appearing at midpalate. Hints of tea are left on the palate. Delicious.

AgentSteve (1640) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - AUG 13, 2010
I finally found a Faro! Pours attractive orange copper with a thin cream head. Nose is sweet and fruity, as is the flavor. Not too sweet though, with a delicate mouthfeel and decent dry finish.

beernbourbon (1366) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Pour is brownish red with a thin beige head. Aroma is jaeger, berries, corn syrup, brown sugar, raspberries, and funky sourness. Flavor is chocolate covered raspberry, jaegermeister, cherry cough syrup, lightly funky and lightly sour. This is not what I expected. Interesting, but not great.

Rosebud butternuts (2396) - Denton, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2010
bottle from whip in. poured an amber color with an off white head. aroma was grain/caramel, light tart fruit, and a touch of cheese. flavor was some cherry, grain, wet blanket, and a slight tart citrus. body was medium and fizzy with a lingering dryness. a tasty beverage to wash down my HA-waiian burger. this was also my last style needed to complete the list.

traPISSED (106) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 9, 2010
375cl bottle at home. Lindemans generally make sweetened lambics so I thought that their Faro would be worth a try. The aroma is very nice with quite a decent amount of horse blanket, which came as a pleasant bonus. The taste is very sweet but their is a decent amount of sourness hidden in there. Very nice caramel taste though I could not drink too much of this. Overall though, quite pleasant

Bottle pours golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and sour with fruity notes. Flavor is sweet, cherry, apple, with a very light tartness.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Clear reddish-brass colored body and clean white dissipating head. Some light visible viscosity. Waxy lactic aroma with buttery, nutty notes. Flavor is like oversweetened tea with some caramel and honey. Mild tartness fails to provide sufficient balance. Syrupy palate like a very sweet soda. This is pure candy beer. Based on this one limited example, this style serves no useful purpose for me.
