Rozsdavörös színe van amiben sejtelmesen hömpölyög egy kis ködös,homályos sűrűbb üledék.A tetején csak éppen hogy valami kis hab keletkezik,ami el is tűnik gyorsan.Illata mint a cefrének összevágott borízű almának amit erjesztés előtt alaposan megcukroztak.Erősen édesen,cukrosan kezdődik,amibe aztán belekeveredik egy fanyar,erősen erjedt,élesztős almás íz.Kicsit olyan mintha egy kis fűszerezett forralt almaborral is felöntötték volna.Utóíze sziruposan édeskés és egy picit ecetes.Érdekes főzet,nekem egy kicsit túl ragadós,cukros.

Vaiz (3555) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2010
Bottle at home. My first Faro. Pours a clear amber color with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of brett and sugar with some earth and slightly fruity. Flavor is very sweet sugary with a very mild sourness. It’s like a lambic with sugar water added. Not bad, but a little too sweet for me.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Pours an attractive amber colour with plenty of head, but it disappears just a little too fast for my liking. Aroma is malts and sugar, some fruity syrup, slight tinniness. Taste is a good mix of hay and cherry, slight orange flavour. Nice bitter lambic finish. Would be near perfect if the aroma was fixed.

boto (1890) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 13, 2010
375ml bottle: Purchased at Carrefour. This one pours a dark, hazy apple juice color. There was a small fizzy head that went away quickly, as did the carbonation. The aroma is a bit like sour apples. There are also some floral notes. It has a bit of a candy sweetness to it, along with a sour apple taste. Still, it finishes a bit dry. It is an interesting brew. It is also my first Faro, and will have to pursue others.

Shared w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn. Pours a red color with no head. The taste is sweet, fruity with loads of rasberry flavors. Finshes slight sour and balanced. Light dry palate.

tdtm82 (695) - Essex, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2010
Pours a nice golden amber colour. The palet and drinkability is very good. The finish is a little sharp and only a small amount of dryness. The texture is caramel; tarts, toffee and some fruits. I am enjoying this. A good beer for a night cap.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - APR 2, 2010
Bottle 37,5 cl from Terra Vinea in Morteau (F). Hazy orange, creamy head off-white fleeting, fizz low. Nose of apple, cider same, wooded, lactic. Mouth at the same time round and tart, candy sugar coats acidity, notes of raw meat. It is refreshing, fruity with touches of gingerbread. Good gueuze of "poor".

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Glowing amber color/ viscous light tan head. Pit fruit aromas with very mild funk, wood. Light to medium body. Fruity sweet candi sugar, apple flavor with a fleeting taste of lambic, which faded with every sip. malted fruit juice.

jumpjet2k (314) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2010
Bottle. Nice darkish-amber, and very clear. Moderate carbonation makes a light-tan head that dwindles to a small rim. Nose is sweet and fruity with a cork/funk note. Flavor is a little sweeter than I’d like for a lambic, which isn’t all surprising from Lindeman’s, but it’s not overpowering, so the lactic tartness still comes through. Peppery/fruity notes show up, as well. It’s sort of a step between the overly sweet and fruity Lindeman’s fruit lambics and a real unsweetened lambic. Not bad, really. Would make a pleasant dessert beer.
