Clear amber with a small, weak head that doesnít last. The aroma has familiar lambic funk, with overripe fruit, and sour apple. The flavor is mellow and enjoyable, with sweetness and tartness balancing each other well. Little bit of dark fruit mixed in. Light bodied with little carbonation. Clean finish.

Reddish gold pour with a thin off white head. Lots of berries on the nose, taste is red berries, a little sourness, a fair bit of sweetness. Not bad at all.

Enjoyable faro beer. As sweet as one might expect from a liquid flavoured with candy sugar.

Bozo_skeleton (1027) - 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.

Awesome lambic. Smells straight up of cherries, tart and delicious. Tastes are more of the same. Sweet, tart and fruity. Everything I expect from this style and it does not disappoint. Medium bodied with a lingering tartness.

Bottle. Pours to a deep amber color, with a rocky head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is inviting, with good aromas of sweet malt, and estery fruit. The palate is sweet and malty, with lots of good malt flavor, paired with nice candy sugar sweetness, and a back drop of sour fruity flavor. This beer finishes with more good sweet and fruity flavors up front, then ends with some sour fruitness that lingers. Nice beer, very enjoyable, very food friendly. I like the addition of candy sugar in this beer. It gives it a really nice sweet/sour character making it a very enjoyable beer drinking experience.

Pours a slightly darkish burnt orange, clear, with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is definitely lambic-y without punching you in the nose: thereís oak, vinegar, mustard, dust, cheese, and a dash of honey and sugar. Flavor is very sweet with sugar, honey, and the lambic characteristics are light and very much in the background. You can tell thereís still a dry sensation from the oak affecting the mouthfeel, but itís secondary. Finishes clean and about 80% sticky and sweet with the oaky dry mustard sensation firmly in the background. Light and easy to drink despite the sticky sweet nature, but I canít help but think this compares to real lambics the way Jolly Ranchers compare to real fruit. Thankfully I tolerate sweetness well. My first Faro, hopefully not my last.

Bottle. Pour is a deep mahogany with minimal head. Aromas are quite sweet with some sourness. Flavours are very sweet with lots of candi sugar. Balanced somewhat by some labic sourness. Mouthfeel is spot on and overall whilst very sweet still a great beer.
