This is a beer for beginner. It is very light and not very tasty. A good beer to begin.

Bottle. Pours a medium brown with mild carbonation and a small head. The flavor is mildly sweet and sticky. Decent overall.

3.4
frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Amber colored beneath a frothy white head. Musty cellar aroma, hints of sweet fruits. Sweet, but certainly not cloying. A little bit of green apple tartness with some faint peach and oak. Not much acidity to speak of. Not great, but a pleasant enough drink.

3.3
jzzbassman (1634) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottled. Pours a dark amber with a thin 2 finger head. Aroma of wood and sweet peach. Starts almost syrupy sweet, but quickly goes to a lemon like tart finish. Interesting.

CaraCurtis (117) - Nevada, USA - DEC 15, 2011
The aroma is not all that big. A tinge bit of fruitiness and maybe a little spice. It pours a clear plum color. There is no real lacing or head. Sticks to itself. It is much more sweet than sour. A bit too sweet for my liking.

3.5
mrhoppy (1288) - Santa Clara, California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
This is the base recipe they use for their fruit lambics. Very cider like. More for cooking than drinking. Way too sweet and one dimensional. The sugar sticks to your lips like cough syrup. Gets better as it warms. Slight plum flavor. Nice color. I added freshly pressed apple juice to mine.

3.2
teddybeer (3783) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 10, 2011
33cl botle. Brown colour with a beige head that at the beginning has good formation but quickly diminishes. Aroma is oakness, fruity and sweet. Flavour is fruity, where apples and cherries are present, with a final slightly bittery and dry. Carbonation is lively. Body is medium.

3.5
annunz123 (957) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Sweet and sour aroma with maybe a little citrus. Flavors starts very sweet with a little fruit and wood. Sour and carbonation give balance and a nice mouthfeel. First time I’ve ever tried a Faro--will try again.

3.9
mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - DEC 3, 2011
Clear amber body with thin white head. Aroma is floral and to me smells like candied cherries. Taste is sweet at first but finishes with a cranberry tartness. Sweet but not cloying. Nice beer to break up your normal beers. Lingers on your palate and has a fizzy mouthfeel. Some lacing. Very enjoyable to split with the wife.

3.2
Sigmund (7534) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2011
375 ml dark green bottle with silver foil top, capped and corked. ABV is 4.2%. Soon available at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Golden brown colour, moderate to low white head. Aroma of malts, cellar, fruit and kandij sugar, hints of oak. The flavour is fruity, moderately acidic and quite sweet, sugary and oaky notes. Faro is maybe not my favourite beer style, but this is a nice "change of pace" beer.
