Enjoyable faro beer. As sweet as one might expect from a liquid flavoured with candy sugar.

A funky brownish red pour with a one finger odd tan head. The nose is sweet dark cherries with a bit of funk from wild yeast. The flavor is also quite sweet and is interesting. It reminds me of a sweet version of a sour. Those cherries, malt, wood. An odd dry bitter finish.

Bottle from myBerwerytap.com. Sweet and sour blend. Fruit, lemonade, rhubarb finish. A tad too sweet. Little or no carbonation.

Amber in the glass. Aroma smells of sweet malt, fruit, wood, and a trace of a lambic funkiness. Pretty sweet on the palate but does have a nice acidic twang to cut some of the sweetness on the finish. I could see this being a good option for people who like gueuze but want something sweeter and less sour.

Gold to murky straw color pour, decent carbonation, sprtizy. The aroma was horse blankets, grapes, lemons, apples. The flavor followed along with earth and dough elements, sweet sugars assertively present, finishing with a light sour touch, but perhaps too sweet (Lindemans, nah?). The mouthfeel was moderate in body and carbonation. Not bad, not all that, though. At 2 faros, guess that makes me a pro.

Goodgrief (2018) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Deep golden color, virtually no head. Strong aroma of vinegar. The flavor wasnt nearly as funky/horseblanketty as other lambics Ive had. Really sweet and the sugary aspect was dominant. Enough vinegary sourness to keep it from being cloying. My first faro lambic...not bad.

Nikiel (879) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Pours a dark gold/brown with minimal fine foam. Smells sweet and slightly sour. Tastes very sweet and lightly sour of cherries and tangerines. Would pair well with fruit ice cream/ice and Belgian waffles.

magsinva (1227) - Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2011
This was my first Faro Lambic. It still has the characteristic lambic sourness, but is tempered by the added sugar so its a balanced sourness. I liked it for its uniqueness.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 18, 2011
Pours with a short lived, white foam. The beer is a crystal clear brown and quite effervescent. Nose is mouthwateringly tart with sour apples and toffees. The flavor is a mixture of sugary, sweet tea-like notes with a metallic twang in the finish.

355 mL bottle poured into Duvel tulip. APPEARANCE: Pours deep orange amber. White head is about 1 finger with medium duration. When head settles, it leaves nice layer of film on surface. AROMA: Lambic, molasses, tart fruit, grain, hay. Faint hint of chalk on nose as well. TASTE: Brown sugar throughout. Front of palate is brown sugar, molasses, some candy-like apple. Mid palate is abundance of tart taste. In particular, notes of tart green apple and tart cherry. Back of palate is tart with faint grainy dryness. Finish is complex interplay of sweet, somewhat dry, and tart; with most emphasis on the tart character. MOUTH FEEL: Lively carbonation. Crisp. Semi-dry. Highly quaffable. OVERALL: My first faro. Interesting. Complex interplay of sweet and tart. Starts sweet and progresses towards tart. Better suited as a session ale sipped during the daytime, ideally at a cafe. Molasses notes would allow this faro to pair well with bacon (i.e., during brunch, etc.). Another reason this beer would be suitable for brunch is that it could substitute for a mimosa during the meal because of its slightly acidic yet sweet nature. In fact, if I were to exaggerate, would say this faro is like a mimosa with a little maple syrup mixed throughout - though in a very delightful way.
