Bottle. Copper pour with nice medium head that turns quickly into some lacing around the edge. Sour candy, apple, brown sugar. Pretty nice balance of sweetness, bubbles and body but slightly watery finish.

Un faro tout en rondeur et en équilibre même si le sucre domine un peu, cela reste un plaisir désaltérant.

BigBeer45 (1318) - Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle from Champanes, this ale had a clear light to medium amber (red-brown) pour and made a small white and faint off-white head that receded to a ring and large island of a cover, it had aromas that were tart and sour fruit that resembled apple, grape and rhubarb, berry with faint cherry, and a faint sweetness in the background, some earth funk, aged and cellar notes, the flavors were sour and tart fruit (sour grape and rhubarb) and berry with a lot of sugar sweetness, some wood, very little malt, the finish had some sour and tartness with sugary sweetness that sort of kept the drink on the sweet side, this beer was much sweeter than I expected, the mouth feel was light with average carbonation, it was sweet and too sweet to be a thirst quencher on a hot day.

King_Alex_II (522) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Very Amber sugary color. The smell is nicely sourish and smells like brett. The taste is lightly sourish and quite sweet. I still don’t like the waste of perfectly good lambic just to add sugar, but I still like it.

SinH4 (927) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Dark orange color with small head. Aroma is lambic funk, apple, berries. Taste is sweet-sour, apples and berries, some caramel, but the Lambic character is still present. An excellent Faro, more of a fruit sweetness than candied sugar, and the tartness is still very present. Still quite sugary. Carbonation is soft. Lecker!

jamaty (1152) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 14, 2015
Color ambar brillante, espuma de un par de dedos. Aroma desagradable, aunque a veces recuerda a mortadela (!)... En boca mezcla el sabor de las lambic muy frutal con un dulzor a caramelo, que da un conjunto agridulce, extraño. Supongo que gustará a mucha gente. No es mi caso.
