I really liked it, been seeking this style for awhile also. Yeasty, notes of cherry and strawberry... Sweet and sugary, also like a hef, and a bit sour as well though it should not make anybody pucker.

Très mauvaise semaine de mon côté avec les produits Lindeman’s; après la pomme que j’ai détestée au plus haut point, la Faro. Cette dernière partait cependant du bon pied: joli look, nez bien acidulé duquel n’émanent aucune odeurs artificielles ou saturées. Non le nez est bien construit présentant les aspects propres au style lambic: petits fruits rouges et vifs, vapeurs acétiques, champignons, terre mouillée. Cette bière aurait été très agréable si ce ne fut de la quantité invraisemblable de sucre dont les brasseurs l’ont pourvue. L’impression que j’en retire est que ceux-ci ont voulu rendre le style accessible à tous en sucrant ce produit de manière artificielle et démesurée mais l’ont rendu ainsi difficile à déguster sans un verre d’eau à proximité tellement la bière est s’en trouve alourdie. Tout cela est bien dommage.

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 (2277) - 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.

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.
