Amber in the glass. Aroma smells of sweet malt, fruit, wood, and a trace of a lambic funkiness. Pretty sweet on the palate but does have a nice acidic twang to cut some of the sweetness on the finish. I could see this being a good option for people who like gueuze but want something sweeter and less sour.

An off-white head (that stayed present for a while) and a caramel red body. The aroma is spicy, sweet, and yeasty. The flavor is sugar-sweet without being overwhelming, and the yeast, malt, and spices are present too, almost giving the flavor a dessert bread-like quality. I donít normally care for lambics, but this is one I could drink on occasion. Very interesting.

Faro to według mnie najlepszy pomysł na nietradycyjnego lambica. Bo jak może komuś nie smakować belgijskie piwo o smaku porto z wyraźnymi nutami kwasowości? Ok, może komuś może, ale ja się nie zaliczam do takiej grupy osůb. To piwo spełniło wszelkie oczekiwania, aż strach pomyśleć jak pyszne mogłoby być jakieś z wyższej půłki w tym stylu. Już zbieram kasę!

Bottle. Nice reddish amber color with white head. Aroma is sour with fruits, blackcurrant? Taste is sour with some sweetness some fruits hints of malts. Aftertaste is sour with sweetness and very low bitterness. Nice but a little bit to sweet.

Bottle. Pours hazy ruby with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet, sugar candy with notes of wood and humid cellar. Flavour is fruity, honey and caramel - pretty sweet and with a metallic aftertaste.

Just to sort out some beers I have had, but didnít rate. Bottle at home, It was an interesting beer, strange sweet/sourness, it was drinkable but i had a hard time drinking the complete bottle.

Presentation: It was poured from a green capped and corked 355ml bottle into a Lindemans fluted glass. The label has a description of the beer but there is no freshness date or abv%. Appearance: Itís dark in the glass with a bronzy amber colored body held up to light. It has good clarity and some visible carbonation. A good two finger head caps of the beer. Itís off white in color and tightly packed. On the glass it leaves some spotty lace. Smell: There are notes of white bread, raw grain and wheat malt with a hint of sweetened whiskey or sweet brandy. Taste/Palate: It is candy sweet up front with notes of white bread, sweet caramel, and nougat. Some tangy wheat and yeast tartness just tries to sneak in as some fruit notes like sweet apple peach and pear lead into a stick sweet finish. The palate is medium bodied, smooth and slick. On the lips it feels sticky. Notes: Iím not quite sure what to think of this beer. My palate is confused, is it a tart beer trying to be sweet or a sweet beer trying to be tart/sour. It is interesting if nothing else.

Pours clear amber color with a very fizzy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is very sweet with some fruity, almost raisin-y funk. As I anticipated, the funk is pretty mild compared to a lot of lambics. Flavor is malty with a sort of apply cider character to it. A little sour bite, but pretty mild. A slight spritz to it. Has an interesting finish to it. Not necessarily dry, but something like it? A very faint bitterness too. Iím actually pleasantly surprised, as I havenít been a huge fan of a lot of the Faros Iíve tried.

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.
