3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. Itís like a lambic with sugar water added. Not bad, but a little too sweet for me.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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".

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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 Iíd like for a lambic, which isnít all surprising from Lindemanís, but itís not overpowering, so the lactic tartness still comes through. Peppery/fruity notes show up, as well. Itís sort of a step between the overly sweet and fruity Lindemanís fruit lambics and a real unsweetened lambic. Not bad, really. Would make a pleasant dessert beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 355ml bottle into a water glass. Little to no head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet and slightly peppery. Mouthfeel is light but sticky, very carbonated too. The carbonation is kind of sneaky, it doesnít really show, but when you tast it, itís very fizzy. Taste is very sweet. Some cherry and other dark fruit flavor. Candy sugar is very present. Pepper favor is also well hidden but is present. Overall, a pretty good beer for dessert. I wouldnít drink it on a regular basis, but for a dessert beer, once in a while, itís pretty good.
