3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours nearly clear perfect amber with a tall frothy off white head that fades to a thick skim fairly quickly, holds there and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is tart stone fruit, sweet candi sugar, fruity floral notes and mixed Jolly Ranchers. Flavor is lightly funky basement, candi sugar, sweet grapefruit juice, musty cereal grain, tart stone fruit and more Jolly Ranchers. Palate is light bodied, with a light, sharp carbonation, entry somewhere between creamy and syrupy and a slightly acidic, sticky and somewhat dry finish. Tasty and refreshing, but a touch too sweet and syrupy for it’s own good.

Sampled from a 12 oz green corked bottle this beer poured a dark golden-amber color with a huge yellow-white head that faded quickly.

The finish was long, sweet, sour and sugary with a hint of apricot. Medium body. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally, I get to try a faro! It smells tart with currants discernible. Clear copper, headless, still. Sweet and tart, but quite a bit more on the tart side. Currants initially, with very distinct musty pear notes appearing at midpalate. Hints of tea are left on the palate. Delicious.

I finally found a Faro! Pours attractive orange copper with a thin cream head. Nose is sweet and fruity, as is the flavor. Not too sweet though, with a delicate mouthfeel and decent dry finish.

Bottle. Pour is brownish red with a thin beige head. Aroma is jaeger, berries, corn syrup, brown sugar, raspberries, and funky sourness. Flavor is chocolate covered raspberry, jaegermeister, cherry cough syrup, lightly funky and lightly sour. This is not what I expected. Interesting, but not great.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
375cl bottle at home. Lindemans generally make sweetened lambics so I thought that their Faro would be worth a try. The aroma is very nice with quite a decent amount of horse blanket, which came as a pleasant bonus. The taste is very sweet but their is a decent amount of sourness hidden in there. Very nice caramel taste though I could not drink too much of this. Overall though, quite pleasant
