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

Lucky to find this on tap (and on special, 3 Euros) at Clichys Tavern in the Montemarte neighborhood of Paris. Pours a reddish brown with a creamy head. Smells of sour green apples and brown sugar, caramel. Everything about this beer is sweet. Thin bodied. Like spiced cider, with a bit of carbonation and candied prunes. Has some Belgian dusty basement quality too it. Not enjoyable at all, and the only beer from this fine establishment that I did not finish.

bottle into snifter. Really nice rich mahogany color, clear, with an orgaish/redish hue and a nice white head that fades slowly and leaves nice lace. Aroma is soft and pleasant - very light gueze quality mixed with a light belgian candi quality. Flavor is startlingly sweet at first, but with smaller sips and more time, it gets much more bearable. Sweet Belgian sugar upfront that fades slowly into a somewhat tartish dry (with even a small hint of funk) gueze base. Medium to light bodied on the palate with just the right amount of carbonation - very fine carbonation, i.e. not bursting with an overzealous quantity of huge C02 bubbles that often characterize lambics. Overall: not my favorite lambic style, but very interesting and fun to try.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange color with an whiteish head. Aroma is champagne like, some citrus, subtle funk, cereal notes, caramel and sugar. Flavor is tart and again a little champagne like with some fruity notes of green apple, along with citrus, subtle funk, caramel and sugar notes. The body is light with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty interesting Lambic and not as sweet as some of Lindemans other Lambics.

I was standing at Als of Hampden trying to decide what to get to drink when he told me I should just get one of these because he was trying to kick the keg. I was not expecting a full pint of it but oh well here we go....

A - Pours murky brownish orange with a small half finger tall white head leaving very little lace down the glass.

S - Smells of musty basement funk, lots of sweetness, and some light salt air. Some light fruity aromas are present as well but I cant really detect what they are through all the other things going on.

T - Starts off with lots of candied sugar sweetness slowly giving way to a mix of light fruit, dulled tartness, and even more sweetness. Some mineral like qualities creep in toward the end but the sweetness drowns them out quickly. The finish is, you guessed it, more sweetness with some light funk, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, slightly funk, feel that stays on the pallet for some time after consumption.

O - I had trouble finishing this glass. I have had a few faros before but for some reason this one really got to me. I wont be getting this one again any time soon.

From a 355ml bottle into a water glass. Little to no head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet and slightly peppery. Mouthfeel is light but sticky, very carbonated too. The carbonation is kind of sneaky, it doesnt really show, but when you tast it, its very fizzy. Taste is very sweet. Some cherry and other dark fruit flavor. Candy sugar is very present. Pepper favor is also well hidden but is present. Overall, a pretty good beer for dessert. I wouldnt drink it on a regular basis, but for a dessert beer, once in a while, its pretty good.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 30, 2012
12oz. Bottle. Clear amber pour with almost no head but what there is sticks around. Very sweet and sour sauce sort of nose with some fruit. Very muted funk in the back. Very easy on the palate and quite sweet right after the sour. This is the first faro Ive had and Im a fan. Sort of. Its a nice starter lambic.

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

ravidesai (978) - Bombay, INDIA - NOV 13, 2002
cloudy tea-like colour. frothy head that did not last long, served in a rather odd looking and chunky tumbler. nose hints at berries and is rarther tart. the taste starts sour but becomes much sweeter - in the manner of a sugary iced tea. maintains a good sweet and sour combination of flavours that is very easy to drink.

Lemke10 (977) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2013
This pours a beautiful semi-clear, copper color with a bubbly, off-white head. The scent is yeasty combined with aged, sweet fruits. There is a sweetness of candied sugar that is like no other. Very smooth, tasty, and unique. Style points aside, this is quite a delicious desert beer that is best enjoyed by itself after dinner, in my opinion. By far the easiest Lambic-Faro to find on the market!
