Early amateur rating warning! Fantastic fruity beer, generic fruit flavours, sweet but sourish as well. Yum!
Serving: 375 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Aroma: I know this is going to sound odd, but it smells like the inside of someone’s shoe mixed with candy sugar.
Appearance: It pours an amber-brown color with a thin white head. Lesser head retention.
Taste: The best way I can describe this one is to say it tastes like a packet of the sweet and sour sauce you get with your Chinese takeout. There is a little apple cider, perhaps a touch of orange peel, and a definite sweetness.
Palate: Light to medium body with average carbonation leading to a lingering sweet finish.
Overall: Well, I can say I have this category ticked off, but I can’t say this brew is one I would go back too. It’s not bad, it’s just not my style. If you haven’t had a Faro, this may be your only shot if you live in the states. Go get it you ticker.
A-pours a hazed dark cider color with a dark tan colored thin bubbly head.
S-the nose has some earthy tones to it as the sweetness takes over, a slightly artificial cherry dominates with touches of sugar and honey.
T-the taste is even more singular, very light earthy tones an almost all sweetness with a slightly artificial taste. nothing offesnsive, loads of red cherries with touches of sugary honey and notes of cider.
M-medium syrupy body that doesn’t have the carbonation to back it up, extremely juicy throughout but no driness what-so-ever.
D-extremely simple and straightforward, very sweet and somewhat artificial. exactly what was expected, would be enjoyable by anyone that likes lindemans. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber/orange, with a white head. Aroma is sugar, funk, and fruit. Flavor is sugar, fruit, funk and cider. Fairly heavy body. Didn’t know what to expect form the, and it is rather good. Damico (3147) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2010
The aroma is that of the light flavors of the Belgian candi sugar. It wouldbe cruel to compare the appearance to Cantillon’s Faro, this is clear red amber with a small head. The flavor is light-bodied with light sweet Belgian candi on the palate, a bit of fruity syrupy sweetness to end.

Aroma is sweet, a lot of muscovado sugar, fruit with peaches. Taste is similar as taste but with a very dry finnish. thornecb (5994) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Pours bright deep copper into a tumbler. White head with excellent retention leaves sheet lacing as it slowly recedes to coat surface. Sour orange, grapefruit, pineapple and apricot aromas. Viscous with upfront sweet and sour sauce turning to a sourpatch middle before the bitter ground pith in the lasting finish. rio451 (4) - California, USA - OCT 4, 2010 does not count
Sweet citrus aroma. Clear orange brown sock water. Glassy frothy head dissipates to thin ring around the glass edge. Light body, sweet and sour combo. Fizzy mouthfeel with sweet tart tang that makes you gleek. First opportunity to taste this style, not the last. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Finally get a Faro rating. Bottle. Amber pour, white head. Sweet artificial sugar, grain, light tartness, and fruit. Not very good, but I would expect anything better from Lindemans. mephisto (1294) - TAIWAN - SEP 29, 2010
pours copper hue with a huge fluffy white head that quickly dissipates. fairly sweet and tart, medium bodied.
