Light amber pour with light beige head. Aromas of musty wood, apple, grape, berry and pear. Flavors are in line with the aroma with a sweetness that lingers on the palate.

Pink amber hue with no head. Nose is composed of sweet caramel, sweet fruity notes and a tiny bit rubbery. Flavour is honey like with sweet fruits, slightest tartness and wood. First faro for me, not really an instant favorite, but alright. Too sweet for me.

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.

brnandersen (2276) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2015
25 cl. bottle poured in to a Flute. Hazy, copper colour with a golden hue. Fluffy, white head. Slightly tart aroma with dusty hops, light barnyard, candid sugar, wooden notes, tart fruits - apples. Taste is lightly sour. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly sour - well balanced with candid sugar/acidic notes. Nice Faro Lambic - a good start in to the world of Lambics.

Bottle bought in Belgium,. Copper colored. Aroma of belgian yeast. Sweet taste with a bit of sourness, a hint of bitterness. Fuity, almost like a cider.

AdamT (228) - North Carolina, USA - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from The Beer Store Wilson. Medium brown hue, murky clarity with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. No lacing. Sweet light fruit, grapes, cherry and some light spice aromas. Sweet bitter dark fruit (prune) up front with more of a dry licorice (after the first taste) and sour fruit (rest of the experience) finish. Light carbonation on the palate. I would drink it again.

rotaman14 (259) - Potsdam, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
Hazy brown body, minimal white head. Totally weak smell of lemongrass. Starts off very sour, an intense taste of brown sugar follows. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. It kind of tastes more like a fresh lemonade than like a beer, but still: delicious stuff.
