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.

Lovely clear orange amber with off-white head that reduces quickly, like most lambics, but leaves decorative skim and lacing. Nose is pickles and peppers, or perhaps pickled pepper, but the palate is more like cherries or strawberries sitting in vinegar. There’s considerable funk, especially initially, but also underlying sugar. The combination of sweetness and sourness is pronounced and enjoyable. Faro clearly isn’t for everyone, but it does offer a nice excursion into slightly wilder territory than most lambics.

Piwo wysokiej klasy! Wyraźnie dzikie, winne ale jednocześnie słodkie. Dodatek cukry kandyzowanego robi swoje. Piwo wybitnie degustacyjne, do sączenia. Jak to bywa z belgijskimi piwami - ciężko je opisać. Zdecydowanie wyjątkowe piwne przeżycie. Polecam nie tylko fanom piwnej dziczyzny

KW92 (143) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 5, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa bursztynowa, opalizujące. Piana drobna i średnio pęcherzykowa, niska.
AROMAT: Dużo owoców (suszone morele, wiśnie w likierze, rodzynki, czarna porzeczka, aronia), lekka "końska derka/siodło", nuty winne.
SMAK: Zaskakująco słodki, ale jest też kontra goryczkowa (pozostająca na języku). Generalnie owoce takie jak w zapachu.
OGÓLNIE: Najsłodsza wersja Lambic-a jakiego miałem okazję degustować, ale z pewnością jest to zasługa cukru kandyzowanego.

MikaLukanainen (72) - POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Pours a deep brown reddish colour with a small, quickly disappearing head which is typical for a lambic. Aroma is fruity (cherry, apple) with a whiff of candy sugar and some funk. The taste is moderately sweet with quite a hefty pack of sourness which doesn’t intend to overstay its welcome. Fizzy, the carbonation is really strong. Overall impression of light fizzy wine or champagne. So easy drinking, enjoyable.

Syfher (158) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle of 37.5cl, in a Tumbler glass; from the fridge. A beautiful clear-brown colour, with a nice aroma of lambiek Nice taste of faro lambiek (sucre candy and vinegar), but maybe a little too sweet. Try it.

weordie (204) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a ruby red with zero head. Aroma of brandy, vinegar and blueberries. Very sweet with hints of cherry and quite a strong acidity to it. Not my style of beer at all.
