Bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Somewhat sweeter than most lambocs. Plenty of bitterness and an arid mouth feel. My wife loved it!

Light red colour with off-white head. Aroma of sour fruit. Taste is sweet with a little wry taste in the background.

Thanks DCLawyer for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing caramel brown and sparse rust tinged foam. The nose shows notes of sweet brett. The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated. Moderately tart with a sweet cane sugar forwardness but moderately sweet and not overwhelming.

annunz123 (954) - 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 Ive ever tried a Faro--will try again.

pictoman (953) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
Poured from 355mL bottle. Clear, orangey-brown with minimal off-white head, very tiny amount of sediment. Aroma slightly sour, some cherry and mild funk, but also a sweet maltiness. Taste has some of the mild sour characteristics of a typical lambic, but also a fair amount of sweetness (could give this to some of my friends who may not be able to take a full sour yet). Finish quite dry, but very bland. Medium-light body, slight oily texture.

reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Bottle from Dovetail. Pours a pale amber with quickly dissipating head. Sweet aroma of artificial strawberries. Taste of raw sugar cane with notes of peach, passion fruit and strawberry. Sickly sweet and syrupy. Dry, waxy finish. The acidic edge is neatly disguised by the sugar. Not THAT bad, but far from great.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2014
Aroma is fruity and slightly musty. Very light and subtle texture on the tongue with a mild effervescent carbonation. Sweet and sour cherry and raspberry with a crisp light dry finish. Tastes like cranberry juice with seltzer water. Some oak like barrel aging flavors with a hint of unmalted wheat possibly. Sweet beer that would compliment many light meals, but definitely not a session brew..A little too sweet for multiple offerings.

CanCrusher (948) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 25, 2016
Bottle 0,25L. Hazy orange color with small, fizzy, off-white head, that turns to a small crown fast. Specific aroma reminds me mostly of sour fruits, wine and vinegar. Very intensive aroma, but not really pleasant to me. Taste starts as a combination of sweet and acidic, but it turns to heavy acidic fast with a noticeable cherry touch and long lasting aftertaste. Interesting experience.

weordie (947) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a ruby red with zero head. Aroma of brandy, vinegar and blueberries. Very sweet with hints of cherry and quite a strong acidity to it. Not my style of beer at all.

tennessejed420 (940) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2011
bottle. Pours a clear red rust color with nice orange tinted head. Aroma not as sweet as expected, there are some vinous, funky tones here, soft balsamic, but also present is a candy like sweetness, which combined give a sensation of candied tart apples. Flavor is sweet / sour, starting with the sweet, a sugary candy like flavor, reminding me of hard candy, i.e. the outside candy part of M&Ms. Then on the finish there are light tart notes, leaving a soft, acidic puckering sensation in the mouth, with notes of cherry. Reminded me alot of liefmans cuvee brut. Overall I actually really enjoyed this, very nice.
