Bright copper color. Taste is of a good ale with overtones of tart citrus, particularly lemon. Refreshing, easy drinking.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 11, 2011
Bottle. Rating #632. Big copper dark amber pour with a quickly fading white head. Fruity aroma, kind of like an underripe apple, a little bitter. Dry and puckering, apple juice, light tartness mixed with the sweet, pretty interesting. (1608)

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Mixed fruit / cough mixture aroma. Medium brown colour with a reasonable head. Strong fruity flavour. Sweet aftertaste. Strong alcoholic mixed fruit juice.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2011
Clear dark copper with a thin receding beige head. Aroma is very wine like with oak, wild yeast, green apple, notes of light candi sugar and light funk. Taste is a nice blend of sugar and funk with the wild yeast ringing true. Notes of apple, a bit of earth and oak, very tangy and mildly carbonated. Sweet and funky, a nice dessert beer with a bit of an attitude and tart to boot.

Lindemans Faro is a crystal clear amber brew thatís topped with a white film that leaves excellent lacing. It has a very sweet, tangy candy aroma. Itís light bodied and lively with a dry finish. It tastes very sweet and tangy. Thereís almost a hint of green apple. Itís the Lindemans flavor without the fruit. This is funky candy juice. Itís a very unique beverage thatís fun to drink.

Very sweet lambic, the extreme tartness in the finish is smoothened out with sweet candy flavor. Tasty style.

chibuck (3507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2011
The beer pours a light clear brown with small head, but good retention and lacing. The aroma is sour with horse blanket dominating. Lots of strong funkyness. The taste is much lighter than the smell, but tart none-the-les. This reminds me of an american wild ale, just not as funky or complex. Its still something enjoyable to drink and very drinkable despite its funk.

Aroma is strong, fruity, yeasty and tangy. It pours a clear, slightly hazy mahogany with a thick white head that sticks around for a bit. Flavor is very fruity and sweet, more like a cider, with a bitter, woody undertone. Still, it is a bit on the sweet side for me. Texture is silky-smooth and fairly tingly, leaving a finish that is fizzy, fruity-sweet and just a little bit bitter. Iím glad that I finally got to sample a Faro Lambic!

355ml bottle. Pours a golden amber with only wisps of lacy head. Aroma is sweet like candy, with a small amount of wheat character. Very attractive. Flavors are lightly spicy sweetness, almost like mead, but without being cloying at all. Actually this is pretty refreshing for being so sweet and uncarbonated. Iím really enjoying it.

First Faro.....pours out a nice copper color with a small lacing off white head. Aroma is of some funk, sugar and cough syrup. Taste is of over-sweetened iced tea, some funky tart notes, earth and more sugar. Odd style that didnít really hit the spot.
