Dark clear amber with quite a bit of sediment. Aroma of apple cider vinegar, funk, tannins, yeast, malt syrup. Flavor is very sweet for a lambic. Not much flavor; Mapley, lemony. This made me go "WHOA" because of how it has both a saccharine feel on the tongue and substantial dry finish.

Solid lambic. I wasnít a fan of the aroma as much as the flavor. The aftertaste is amazing. Very carbonated, sugary and sweet on the tongue.

Pours clear orange-amber with a large beige head, fine and clinging lacing. Aromas of apple, apricot, biscuit, orange, honeysuckle, and grass. Medium-thin body, tart and creamy. Medium sweet, not cloying, medium orange pith sourness, and a light sour finish with just a hint of bitterness.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2012 Pours a hazy light broen colour with a white head that quickly disappears. Aroma of strawberries, malt and maybe som citrus notes. Flavour is strong notes of strawberries, sugar and grass. A bit too sweet imo. Nice for two or three sips, but then it gets a bit too much.

I had pulled this one off the shelf a few weeks ago, removed the cap only to discover that I didnít have a corkscrew. So I put it back on the shelf. Today I got the corkscrew out of the moving box and grabbed the Faro off the shelf. To my horror I discover that the cork had worked its way out at some point in the past few weeks! But, I figured that this is a wild ale anyways, so what the heck.
Pours a deep mahogany with light carbonation and a small fizzy head (!!!) Aroma is granny smith apples, mildly sour, other light fruits, and a touch of funk. Flavor is quite sugary, with a slightly sour/tart finish. Very sweet and appley, but still, very good!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Date Rated: Feb. 3, 2013...
Glassware: Lindemans flute...
Occasion: Super Bowl Sunday--lose Baltimore!...
Appearance: dark copper body with a bright, white, thin hazy head; sediment flecks dance amidst fervent effervescence...
Aroma: flat, funky, punchy pungency; dryish as a wine, buts its wheat keeps the profile in the beer realm...
Palate: medium-bodied and fizzy; willpower must be invoked to keep from slamming the fluteís contents...
Taste: sour and tart, as expected--not too puckerish; fruity and rewarding in its full flavor profile...
Overall: Part Super Bowl high, part beer-buying-binge-booty mood, my state of mind may have something to do with enjoying this beer and its style, which I havenít sprung for in a while; at $6 a bottle, pricey but provides a worthwhile experience...

Bottle. A sweet, yeasty, fruity aroma (I couldnít put my finger on which fruits were there). Taste has some hop and malt, with an underlying lambic fruit flavour. A sweet, fruity, acidic finish. Not too sweet. Moderate carbonation. Fairly refreshing and easy to drink.
