3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma from far away is very similar to Cuvee Rene, get a hint of the underlying funk. Funk is still evident when I take a closer sniff, but the caramel sweetness from the sugar comes to the fore. Upon tasting, the immediate sensation on the tongue is some acid and lemons. That disappears quickly though as my palate is then consumed by caramel and sugar. Mouthfeel is average and bubbly. Finish is sugary and tart. Pretty good beer. Only faro better than this in my book is Straffe Winter, which is quite a different beast.

Maybe its just because I canít get Faro anywhere around my domicile that makes me enjoy this so much. All right. Itís NOT my favorite Faro, but this is a really nice drink. Slightly red. Fast-dissipating head. Notes of acidity and candi-sugar on the nose. Caramel notes from the candi-sugar and wonderful lambic tartness in the flavor. Alas, a little watery in the end and the palate could be bigger. Very sprtizy. Try one of these!

Pours a amber brown clear with a 2-3 finger pour with very heavy lacing. Sour apple and funk aroma. Medium sour and medium to heavy sweetness. Spices, slight cough drop. Long, sweet finish. Moderate carbonation. Perhaps floral hops. This beer is way to sweet for my taste, but itís not terrible.

I am a fan of Lambic in general but it turns out I am not a fan of Faro. Funk comes through in the nose with a sweetness to boot. Flavor is lambic funk in the background with a sweetness cutting through the funk. A little to sweet for me.
