5C (as it says on the bottle). Amber, small beige head. High bead. Aroma of under-ripe pears and apples, pepper, cloves, ginger. Tastes very sweet even this cold, with some sourness, funk and spices. Syrupy mouthfeel is a strange contrast with the modest funky sourness and quite prickly spices (I suppose that’s the point). A little astringency is still present, struggling against the sweetness.

375ml capped and corked. Pours a clear dark tan golden with a small white head that settles to a uniform small ring around the edge of my glass quickly yet reforms easily with a few swirls of the glass. First thought is that it is a dumbed down slight sweet and earthy lambic nose...guess that makes sense given what a Faro is, but this is my first one. Earthy, slightly dank hay...yet clean in terms of what you’d get from a lambic, light lemon, bread, touch of cakey honey. Flavor is much different, slightly tart at first bu then it is full on apple and honey sweetness with the apple being subtle. Light acidic notes and sweet lightly spiced doughy notes go back and forth. I need to try another Faro.

Bottle split with a couple of grimps courtesy of Andrew. Pours a dark, hazy amber with nice white lacing. Aroma is tart apple and peaches. Mouthfeel is crazy, nice and syrupy with notes of slippery wet apple cores, slitting tartness and peaches.

Brown clear pour with nice lacing. Slight fruity nose. Taste is very apple dominated with some dried fruit flavors and honey. Very viscous.

Courtesy of Balazs. Completed my quest for every style of beer. Chewy apple, apricots, prunes, honey. Excellent lacework, sticky and sudsy.

Pours a slightly darkish burnt orange, clear, with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is definitely lambic-y without punching you in the nose: there’s oak, vinegar, mustard, dust, cheese, and a dash of honey and sugar. Flavor is very sweet with sugar, honey, and the lambic characteristics are light and very much in the background. You can tell there’s still a dry sensation from the oak affecting the mouthfeel, but it’s secondary. Finishes clean and about 80% sticky and sweet with the oaky dry mustard sensation firmly in the background. Light and easy to drink despite the sticky sweet nature, but I can’t help but think this compares to real lambics the way Jolly Ranchers compare to real fruit. Thankfully I tolerate sweetness well. My first Faro, hopefully not my last.

inbirraveritas (1300) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 12, 2010
Opálos, rézszínű lambic, melynek vékonyka habja seperc alatt nyomtalanul eltűnik. Szénsavassága igen élénk, a pici buborékok élénken pezsegnek a pohárban. Illata elsőre száraz borra emlékeztett, idővel előbújnak az édes, gyümölcsös jegyek. Csípősen indul, íze édes, gyümölcsös/cukros, aromája savanykás, ecetes, tejsavas. A befejezés édes-savanyú, és csak nagyon enyhén száraz. Igen könnyen iható, és frissítő vadóc.
