Clear reddish-brass colored body and clean white dissipating head. Some light visible viscosity. Waxy lactic aroma with buttery, nutty notes. Flavor is like oversweetened tea with some caramel and honey. Mild tartness fails to provide sufficient balance. Syrupy palate like a very sweet soda. This is pure candy beer. Based on this one limited example, this style serves no useful purpose for me.

At Bruges Beer Fest. Pours clear dark orange/amber with a creamy beige head. In the aroma you find brown sugar, yeast, wheat, cherry and blackberry. Tastes heavy sweet with a sour ending. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice drink.

Shiny orange amber. Extremely sweet caramel flavor. Paired with intense sour and horsey flavors. Very complex.

My first faro. Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop downtown. Pours a pretty deep amber with a sizable beige head. Smells of a black tea with added fruit flavor, sweetened. Perhaps blackberry. Taste is also similar to a sweetened black tea. Very sweet with a bitter bite underneath, lemon juice inside the black-blackberry tea with some sugary notes. Tasty.

Darker golden orange, slight opacity, minimal white head; dissipates quickly. Very sweet sugary nose, hint of bright cherry, slight funk, slight tartness. Again, very sweet, but significantly more sour than the nose would suggest. Quite oily, medium body, really coats the palate and just stays. Good, could be great after a few years in the cellar.

Hanuta06 (422) - Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Serving: from bottle purchased at The Beer Junction. Aroma: moderate yeast, citrus, floral aroma. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white, initial head with no lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, light-orange body. Taste: lightly sour/sweet initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: light body, oily texture and lively carbonation. Overall: soda-like and easy to drink.

phfyysik (171) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2016
Pours nice reddish colour. Sugar comes up in aroma, as well as sourness and some juice notes. In taste sour notes are noticeable, but the taste of brown sugar suppresses down the regular lambic style taste. Not bad, but can be better.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. Reading CPPHTP10 Ch11. Adding sugar makes it less disgusting than a pure lambic but doesnt make it good either. At least I could finish it.

Przyjemne, jako ciekawostkę można wypić. Kwaskowe w smaku.----
