Yay... my final style, picked this up at the Beer Ritz in York, England. Nice golden-brown body with a very thin white head. Great sourdough-bread aroma, nice and tart. A very tart and sweet flavor, ending with almost a pure caramel-sugar tang, maybe some sour apple showing up as well. Basically a normal gueuze with more sugar than normal.

37,5 cl bottle Deep copper colour, perfect head which leaves a smooth small bubbled layer til the end. gorgeous smooth vinegar nose. i cant help it, i really like faro lambics, even though i always feel a bit cheated since its just lambic with sugar. But even i am not always in the mood for full on vinegar. But i have to say its not the best, and generally draught versions are a lot better. Still very yummy though xxx

Hazy deep amber color, small white head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Sugary and fruity aroma. Medium sweet, medium sour taste. Refreshing and somewhat interesting beer.

Flaske. Noe uklar ravfarget,moderat karbonert med hvit tynn skumrand. Smaker stikkelsbær,druestein,sitrus,kandissukker,gjær. En meget god faro, men føler kanskje den har en litt kunstig syrlig smak siden den er tilsatt ascorbinsyre ?

Backlog. Bottle at a Systembolaget arranged tasting. Slightly too sweet for me.

Faro purchased at Olive Tree Market in OB. Last one. Sweet aroma and taste. Not very sour which was only what I expected. Haven’t had many in this style. Still it was good and I enjoyed it.

Found this at GE Market District-certainly the easiest to find brew of the style and my first. A- Body is a completely transparent slightly dark caramel hue. Pours with <1/2 finger foamy white head that eventually fades to a thin collar with no lacing left behind in the glass. S- Nose is of moderate strength and offers a good bit of funk-cheesecloth, a hint of vinegar, and a sugary sweetness-that seems to be more of regular sweetness than belgian candi sugar T-Taste is much stronger than the smell. The initial flavor of of juicy white grapes, a very mild accent of vinegar, and a hint of cheese. The finish adds a lot of sweetness-almost cloyingly so- to the flavors already described. What lingers is a mild combination of everything described. M- medium to high clarbonation and a medium weight quite juicy body initially with a slightly dry finish. D- This is an interesting brew overall. My first of the style-and I dont really depend on Lindemans to demonstrate the best example-but I have a good idea of what its about. The flavor profile is slightly gueze-like but has a much lighter character and is much sweeter. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-07-2010 22:53:15

Pours a clear deep copper brown with two fingers of fluffy slightly off-white head compacting gradually to a persistent cap and heavy lacing. Nose is candi sugar, cherry, light funk and leather. Taste is sweet and fruity, with a little more sour cobwebby funk than is present in the nose, and some vinous oak. Mouth feel is medium-bodied with sustained moderate carbonation and an off-dry finish. This is nice. Much sweeter and milder than a gueuze, very similar to a cherry lambic but with more brown sugar and less cherry. The sweetness makes smaller servings appropriate - this would be a very decent dessert beer.

Bottle. Sour lambic aroma with some sweetness present. Flavour is an abomination - far too sweet with unpleasant earthy elements. I couldn’t finish the bottle.

nice beverage-- it shows how extensive the beer family can be, this scarcely seems like a beer at all-- there are few of the usual signposts indicating much in the way of malt or hops. one would guess this one is a relative only by marriage: brewing yeasts and some vague malt foundation wedded to dark fruits in sweet noble rot. it's a soft orange pour-- between tiger fur and apricot pastel yellow. there's a nice decoration of ice-white lace like sinuous veins in marble. rich aroma of cherrys, cedar, noga-hide upholstery, and some perfumes common to ladies bath soaps. i searched hard for the "barnyard" aromas, but found only the dried-flower smell of hay-- no horses or goats. extremely sippable, the 25cl bottle is an adequate serving size. is it sweet? duh, yeah, does michael jackson own a bottle opener? yeah, it's way sweet. cherries and apples with a very tart cranberry finish. lightly sour, acidic as a car battery, very soft creamy palette. the finish is all cranberry-lemon, which may accord with breakfast fare: pastries and waffles. contains no buzz that i could desern: this is suitable for children, pooh bears and sweat bees-- and perhaps the serious beer hunter searching for the outer boundaries of what we call beer.
