Bottle pours amber/red with a light cream head. Aromas are tart and vinegar like. Taste is sweet and sugar leith some light tartness o the back end. Not nearly as sour as the beer smelled. Refill get sme light funkiness breaking through the sweetness. Overall a nice beer and the only Faro I have had.

KoNrRiI (683) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 17, 2015
0.375 bottle. Hazy, dark amber color and a small, white head. Sweet and sour fruity aroma with hints of candy and some unfortunate metal. Taste is really sweet: candy, fruits, honey, sugar, sour fruits as well. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is also sweet and very fruity. Overall this is my first faro, and although I do not have a developed taste for it I certainly enjoyed this one.

Bottle courtesy MrBunn. Pours a bit of a copper, smelling of green apple. Rather sweet with a slight bit of tartness. Almost borders on cloying at the end. Pretty good, but in small amounts.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 7, 2014
Pours slightly translucent rose/brown with a thin off white head, very small, champagne type bubbles, very attractive. Nose is earthy, yeasty, cheese, leather, a little horsey. Rather sweet, chalky mouthfeel, there is a sourness towards the back but not overwhelming. I love it.

Otje (678) - Veendam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2006
Amber/brown beer with a small head. Smells fruity, woody, dusty and candyish. Tastes sweet, fruity(cherry, strawberries), sourrish(vinegar, lactic acidity), some horseblanket, dark candy and woody. Finishes more sourrish, fruity, woody and long. Somewhat cloying mouthfeel and just enough co2. Rather good faro, with a distinct lambic background.

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2011
Pours a dark golden colour with a thin head. Aroma is sweet sugary almost pear notes. Taste is a nice balance of sweet sugar and sour aftertaste.

Bozo_skeleton (675) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 18, 2013
Lambic aux couleurs caramel mou. Sa mousse généreuse est fuyante mais elle pétille joyeusement en bouche. Les arômes sont très proche du cidre, pomme, candi, épices. La bouche est bien sur sucrée et ronde mais une pointe d'acidité viens contrebalancer le tout. Enveloppante et légèrement piquante elle accompagnera aisément les desserts.

UXO (675) - CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
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.
