Transparent light amber color with thin layer of white head. Sour aroma of champagne and cork. Sweet cotton candy like malty flavor with nice cherry tartness. Could use some additional carbonation.

In my search to get the award for all styles, i had to try this lambic as i am not a huge fan. I bought a bottle to share with a couple friends who all enjoyed it. I thought it was very sweet with a good flavor of sugar and candy.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Pours clear amber color with a very fizzy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with some fruity, almost raisin-y funk. As I anticipated, the funk is pretty mild compared to a lot of lambics. Flavor is malty with a sort of apply cider character to it. A little sour bite, but pretty mild. A slight spritz to it. Has an interesting finish to it. Not necessarily dry, but something like it? A very faint bitterness too. Iím actually pleasantly surprised, as I havenít been a huge fan of a lot of the Faros Iíve tried.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Poured a mostly clear amber-red color with a nice white head that had good retention and nice lace. A slight carbonated appearance. Aroma was a mix of wild yeast, esters and sugar. Initial flavor was slightly tart with some sweetness. Sweetness seemed to grow slightly strong not enough to dominate the tartness but enough to give the beer some edge. Beer seemed to have a thin mouth feel, but actually coated the palate. Nice.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2011
I donít know why, but I associate the colors on the label with the color of the beer for the Lindemans beers. So this did not pour black, but rather brown-red with a whitish cover. Aroma is lightly tart, but largely sweet, caramelized malt. Taste is light liquid sugar. Lots of sugar, there is a light acidity trying to fight through, but it fails. Not bad, but largely devoid of any depth.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Pours an amber-copper body with a lasting beige head. Aromas and flavors of a Red Delicious Apple, some bereft notes. Slightly sour. Finish has a tea note.

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 27, 2011
Looks innocuous enough, pouring a lovely clear copper with a thin white head that subsides quickly. Where it differs is the antiseptic sting on the nostrils upon opening, even before nosing properly. (This is my first faro lambic, can you tell?). Has that lovely distinctive lambic tang of berryfruit juice and a hint of armpit. Tastes juicy, tangy and almost as if it has cherries and raspberries in it. While the sourness isnít mouth puckering and doesnít turn your mouth inside out, this is inviting and tasty. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Expected this one to be a lot more sour than it is. This one tastes pretty nice and is easy to drink for almost everyone.

bergstaden (2382) - RÝros, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2011
Dark golden/amber with a small white head that goes away fast - aroma is of sweets, but olso with a sour note in the back - taste is of a very good combination of sweet and sour - this was very good and very drikable

12 ounce bottle. Pours a orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of tart fruit, balsamic vinegar, malt and yeast. Taste is a complex mix of cherries, malt, citrus and sugar. Starts sweet and ends tart. Not sure what to make of this style. Interesting for sure.
