3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a small off-white head that quickly disappears. Aroma is malty and tart with notes of caramel, apples, wood and vinegar. The flavour is quite tart also but with a fair amount of sweetness, with notes of toffee, apples, pears, grapes, vinegar and wood. Dry mouthfeel with moderate carbonation and a lingering tart, mildly bitter finish. This being my first Faro I don’t have much to compare it to, but overall this is quite nice; however the sweetness would probably get to be a bit much in large quantities.

[Bottle] shared by skyview. Pours a hazy gold with a small effervescent head. Aroma is sweet, slightly tart, some vanilla, and not a whole lot of funk. Flavor is sweet and sugary, slightly tart, some vanilla, and a quick finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours a beautiful semi-clear, copper color with a bubbly, off-white head. The scent is yeasty combined with aged, sweet fruits. There is a sweetness of candied sugar that is like no other. Very smooth, tasty, and unique. Style points aside, this is quite a delicious desert beer that is best enjoyed by itself after dinner, in my opinion. By far the easiest Lambic-Faro to find on the market!

Bottle to glass. Pours a mostly clear amber ruby color with a light tan head. Aroma is mostly sweet berries, very mild tartness. Flavor has a big sweetness, touch of sour berries, but not much. Light to medium in body with a long lingering sweetness. Tasty. Quite sweet.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light darker red with orange hues producing a foamy head with light carbonation. Aromas of wood/oak, sour apple, honey, cork, and slight cherry. Flavors of sour/spicy apple, slight cherry, honey, oak/wood, and light cork. Medium to high sweetness, crisp, slightly sour,clean finish with almost no aftertaste. Wow my first faro lambic. I enjoy the sweetness here and like this style better than the other lambic styles. Taste like an aged lambic but with a dominant sweetness (the only real taste difference).

Bottle, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing it! Pours a clear dark reddish-amber with a big bubbly white head. Very sharp / tart aroma, of fruit, malt, yeast, and sugar. Taste is sweet and sharp, lots of sugar, with malt, plums, and berries. Lingering sharp sweetness. Tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A incredibly interesting lambic, general fruity scent that leads into a tart but smooth caramel body, bitter after flavor but agreeable with a little bite.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker than I expected. Amber color, expected lighter. Aroma of lactic sour and slight sugary sweetness. Taste is lactic sour with a sugary sweetness and almost some oaky woody flavors. Almost tastes like wet wood though, think that is the sugar with the lambic. Odd style. I like the geuze or fruit lambic better. Low carbonation. Sour is maybe 3 of 10 sour. And too sweet, maybe not even as sweet as some fruit lambics, but sugary sweet is weird.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ home. Gustosa, acisa e dolce contemporaneamente con schiuma cremosa e corpo soffice. Un pelo astringente sul finale ma ben bilanciato dalla dolcezza generale.
