Pours a light darker red with orange hues producing a foamy head with light carbonation. Aromas of wood/oak, sour apple, honey, cork, and slight cherry. Flavors of sour/spicy apple, slight cherry, honey, oak/wood, and light cork. Medium to high sweetness, crisp, slightly sour,clean finish with almost no aftertaste. Wow my first faro lambic. I enjoy the sweetness here and like this style better than the other lambic styles. Taste like an aged lambic but with a dominant sweetness (the only real taste difference).

Acquired via trade with Chopz. 37.5cl bottle. 4.5%. Pours a fairly big foamy bubbly off-white head and has a reddish amber appearance with sediments clearly visible. Lacing is ok. Aromas are quite varied, some sour notes, cherries, dry fruits, finishes with what can only be described as humid basement aroma. Wow. Flavours are all over the place. Itís sweet, slightly sour, some tarty notes, some hints of apples. Cherries, sweet and caramel malts, a bit yeasty. Well balanced sweetness and bitterness. Slight drying sensation on the palate.

I really liked it, been seeking this style for awhile also. Yeasty, notes of cherry and strawberry... Sweet and sugary, also like a hef, and a bit sour as well though it should not make anybody pucker.

Bottle pours dark amber/light red color with off white head. Aroma is mostly yeast with subtle sweet candi. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is apple, cherry, upfront with slight tart notes. Finish is sweet candi that is not too sweet. This is a really nice brew. I recently had a couple aged faroís. Iím glad I got to try a more fresh one because the aged versions tend to lose their tartness altogether. I plan on picking up a few more these. Its a nice brew.

TheBeerLover (1027) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours to a deep amber color, with a rocky head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is inviting, with good aromas of sweet malt, and estery fruit. The palate is sweet and malty, with lots of good malt flavor, paired with nice candy sugar sweetness, and a back drop of sour fruity flavor. This beer finishes with more good sweet and fruity flavors up front, then ends with some sour fruitness that lingers. Nice beer, very enjoyable, very food friendly. I like the addition of candy sugar in this beer. It gives it a really nice sweet/sour character making it a very enjoyable beer drinking experience.

thellgren (1027) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 8, 2015
0.375 l bottle with cap and cork from local supermarket. This was probably the first time I opened a bottle of beer with a wine bottle opener. Dark amber, almost brown, colour with a nice tan head. This is obviously somewhat sweet but not too sweet. You can still taste the dry lambic. I think this is quite balanced and the best faro I have tasted so far. If you are going to cure your hangover with a beer, faro woould be a good choice.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pours a slightly darkish burnt orange, clear, with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is definitely lambic-y without punching you in the nose: thereís oak, vinegar, mustard, dust, cheese, and a dash of honey and sugar. Flavor is very sweet with sugar, honey, and the lambic characteristics are light and very much in the background. You can tell thereís still a dry sensation from the oak affecting the mouthfeel, but itís secondary. Finishes clean and about 80% sticky and sweet with the oaky dry mustard sensation firmly in the background. Light and easy to drink despite the sticky sweet nature, but I canít help but think this compares to real lambics the way Jolly Ranchers compare to real fruit. Thankfully I tolerate sweetness well. My first Faro, hopefully not my last.

Bottle. Pour is a deep mahogany with minimal head. Aromas are quite sweet with some sourness. Flavours are very sweet with lots of candi sugar. Balanced somewhat by some labic sourness. Mouthfeel is spot on and overall whilst very sweet still a great beer.
