Rating #1125, flaske fra The Bottle Shop i Brgge

Min 1125de rating, men endnu er der ltyper jeg ikke har lsket min gane i, og en af dem, er faro. Det bliver spndende at se, hvad der byder sig. llet er let tget teaktrsfarvet og med et hvidt, boblende skum, der forsvinder hurtigt. Syrlig duft som forventet og underligt nok en smule champignon og klder/gr. Syrlig smag med en del rde br og blommer, samt masser af sdme, og tidligere nvnte fugtige klder. Rigtig lkker smag egentlig - og dejligt forfriskende - isr da jeg havde frygtet noget geuze-lignende, som jeg bestemt ikke er begejstret for (i vrigt den eneste ltype jeg bevidst gr uden om, udover berliner weisse). Bld og tiltalende mundflelse, der ikke er helt tynd. En positiv overraskelse, og jeg vil prve at finde nogle flere faroer, selvom det ikke er en ltype man falder over hver dag.

ComradeK (1181) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 24, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber, with a large white head, which lasts fairly well, and leaves reasonable lacing. The aroma is a mix of sour, musty, woody and faint leathery notes. It opens with a nice, strong sourness, with perhaps some redcurrant flavour playing through it. The influence of the candy sugar can be felt moving into the mid-palate, which offers some sweetness along with some woody notes. The sour flavour and slight redcurrant notes reappear towards the finish, which is a deft balance between sour and sweet. This is the first non-fruit lambic I have been able to lay my hands on, and it is not disappointing - it certainly lives up to my expectations.

Quirky beer from Lindemans, its been days since Ive enjoyed it and taken my notes and I still am not sure what to completely make of it. Body is amber brown in color and produces a 1/4" filmy, white head. Spotty lacing and ample carbonation create for a great appearance. The aroma is a medley of sugary and sour fruits coupled by some light brown sugar, reminds me of plain doughnuts that have just been brought out to cool. Tart with a sticky sweetness and thick finish that coats the mouth. I found the feel somewhat of a drawback due to the heavy sweetness, but the mild tartness is refreshing. Mixed sour fruit and sugary baked good flavors. Somewhat dry, wheat and caramel seem to ease their way into the mix. Hard to pinpoint the aroma and flavor any better, its odd and intriguing. Nothing Ill likely go back to.

I finally found a Faro lambic! Poured a clear honey color with a white foamy head. Aroma is very similar to a gueuze, with some sour notes and yeast. Taste is sweet with fruity notes, mainly grapes and cherries. Taste is closer to a fruit lambic than to a gueuze. A good amount of flavor, but not many yeast or sour tastes. Finish is a little bit more dry than the beginning. An interesting style, but I think i prefer gueuze and fruit lambics.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
375 ml bottle, best before August 2007. My first Faro! A good celebratory rating on my 4 year anniversary here at Ratebeer. Deep golden colour with a thin off-white foam. Sweet, honey, almost orange peel like aroma. Very sweet, light sourness, lightly winy and sherry flavour. Medium bodied, a bit syrupy.

355mL bottle poured into a tulip -- light brown, syrup looking. Its sweet and not very complex. Im not a huge fan.

Shared a bottle of this with my family after Christmas dinner. Pale amber. sugary sweet, with a hint of sourness. Its always a treat to get a chance to try this style.
