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. teddybeer (3963) - 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. annunz123 (962) - 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. mcdav2154 (448) - 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. Sigmund (7762) - 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.

This little 25cl bottle pours clear copper with white head. The aroma is on the sweet side with inviting notes of yeasty tartness backed by slightly funky to stale cherries and slightly moldy, sticky and oozing plums and musty basement. The taste begins with a sweet/tart like cherry and sweet green apple candy note. Behind those notes are moderate layers of sour lemon / lime, tart yeastiness and then a big more sweet sugar like notes attempting to even this out. It ends on the dry side as the moderate tartness and sourness leave the palate fairly dry into the after taste with lingering notes of lemon, ripe sweet green apple and cherry.

Pours a clear bronze colour with almost no head.
Nice faro, bit too sweet for my taste. KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 24, 2011
AROMA: not very big, hints of fruit and spice; APPEARANCE: pours clear brown with decent head and effervescent; TASTE: sour and sweet and strong bitterness; PALATE: smooth, medium body, slightly spiked tongue, longish bitter-sweet finish; OVERALL: it is a pleasant enough beer, not that distinctive. rederic (3340) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
