3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received a 375ml bottle via trade with MrBunn. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thin off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of sweet candi sugar, pears, a hint of peach and wintergreen. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of overly sweet pears, wintergreen, some tart cherries, and mild spice. Finish continues the sweet characterwith some yeast and tart fruit after the finish. A pleasant surprise for a faro.

Fizzy off white head and sparkling amber body. Very sweet nose, some berries, but mostly peppermint and rock candy. Taste is honey and sweet caramel, but tied in with a light sourness. Cherry and raspberry. Usual syrupy crisp palate. I love everything ive tried from this brewer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very interesting. Definitely different. Very sweet and sticky. Malty sweet sugary aroma and taste is smooth. Almost iced cidery mouthfeel. A little sweet for me.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Hazy reddish brown body with a big very creamy light brown head leaving huge lacing on the glass. Perfection. Sweet fruity aroma with a slight sourish touch. Honey like flavour with lots of fruit and also a bit earthy. It ends up sweet fruity and a bit sour. I liked it!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My first ever Faro:
Appearance: Chestnut brown. Hazy. Little head.
Aroma: Sweet, cork. Earth.
Taste: Wow, very sweet. Shandy? Slight sourness too. Best lambic for me, but that doesnít say much.
Info: 375ml bottle. 2/4-2009

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at Roziís in Lakewood. The pour is a very attractive amber with a slight haze to it and a small head. The aroma is a very sweet earthy mix: spicy sweet notes of peach, wood, dirt and wet cobwebs. The flavor is pretty interesting, sweet, syrupy, woody and a slight bit malty. Unfortunately this is a little too sweet for me. At least it has a slight bitterness going for it at the end, and the earthy tones, but it still is a little one-sided.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brown beer with medium white head. Aroma is sweet and sour, dark dried fruits and overdone bananas. Flavour is sweet, raisins and some fermented fruits. Sticky and quite nice to drink. Unusual nuancees are found from Lindemans Faro, but if there would be less sugar this would be more refreshing and better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle. Pours a deep golden/copper color, much darker than most Geuezes. A fluffy substantial head is formed and has good retention. Aroma shows floral and spicy elements, not much traditional funk though some esters are noticeable underneath. Candy, skittles, slight earthiness and pepper. Flavor is sweet and very candy like. Sugar is very noticeable and tastes more like sugar than sweet beer. This is very different. Lots of sweet candy flavor which is not something Iím used to. People who donít like beer would be all over this. I prefer more traditional lambics. At least I finally got to try this style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2010 Sour fruit aroma of pears and apples, again reminiscent of champagne; weak sweetness and somewhere - with imagination - thereís a little hops. The flavour is sweet fruity (like the aroma); soft carbonation. The sweetness lingers on the palate and is not fully balanced by the sourness and subtle bitterness.
