A sugary malty beer. Small head like drinking simple syrup spiked beer. Great for an after dinner drink instead of desert. Almost too sweet to drink in any quantity.

I poured this into an oversized wine glass and I got a big white billowy head sitting on top of a ruby colored body. The head fades away to a nice lace but you still get a ton of carbonation coming from the glass. Big old funk nose on this brew that I couldnít get past. Now the flavor was really sweet which threw me for a loop with the amount of funk in the nose. It was big on the candy sugar and fruit. It had a medium feel to it with more than ample carbonation to it. I drank about half the bottle then it became a little to sweet for me. So I sparked a big ass cigar and dam if it didnít work well with it

Bottle, poured into a flute. Pours a light clear reddish in color with a pure white head. The aroma is light and fruity, light notes of spice. The flavor is clean, crisp, slightly yeasty with lots of malty sweetness. The finish is almost clean, lightly cloying.

From 25cl bottle. Dark amber clear body with a small white head, almost no lacing. Gingerbread, clove, caramel, raisin in the nose. Heavy cloying sweetness, medium sourness, almost no bitterness. Medium body, creamy, lively, with a long syrupy finish and a back sourness. The Faro is a quite unique beer, some may donít like it, but I do like it. Give it a try!

12 oz. bottle served in tumbler- poured a transparent brazen copper color, lively medium carbonation, a thin broken white whisp for a head. Aroma of a wet barrel, yeast, wheat, and some sour apples- perhaps I should have put a little age on it... hits the mouth with light body, malt faint but to be expected, very smooth sugary sensation in the middle with vanilla in the background, finish is tart and smacks you upside your head if you even think about putting it down. Yummy yummy says the tummy!

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 14, 2010
THOUGHTS: My first Faro. Smell of a sour burp when opened. Fairly champagne like. A bit dusty, too. I think I will get another one to age. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Corked and capped. Poured a medium to dark, orangey copper with a large, off-white head that mostly diminished and left left excellent lacing. The aroma had apple cider; moderate barnyard, cheese, cobwebs and dusty yeast; grape, apple and champagne. The initial flavor was sweet, slightly sour and ever so slightly acidic; while the finish was slightly sweet, sour and slightly acidic. There was apple, grape, champagne, sugar water, dusty yeast and sour fruit. The light to medium body was very dry with fairly soft carbonation and a chalky finish.

Faro purchased at Olive Tree Market in OB. Last one. Sweet aroma and taste. Not very sour which was only what I expected. Havenít had many in this style. Still it was good and I enjoyed it.

Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is sweet of candied sugar, yeast, and some slight barnyard aroma. Flavor is sour up front with the tart fruits, barnyard and the candied sugar. Sourness lingers for awhile. Overall not bad but there are much better lambics out there.

Bottle thanks to llcooldave. Diabetics----Watch out for this beer!!!! Poured a clear, glowing light copper body with a bit of head that left some lacing. Aromas of tartness, citric, white wine, sour, fruity and sour apples. Flavors of sour apples, lightly acetic, medium+ sweetness that overpowers the tart/citric aspect. Active, soft carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Sweet and tart.
