375ml capped and corked. Pours a clear dark tan golden with a small white head that settles to a uniform small ring around the edge of my glass quickly yet reforms easily with a few swirls of the glass. First thought is that it is a dumbed down slight sweet and earthy lambic nose...guess that makes sense given what a Faro is, but this is my first one. Earthy, slightly dank hay...yet clean in terms of what you’d get from a lambic, light lemon, bread, touch of cakey honey. Flavor is much different, slightly tart at first bu then it is full on apple and honey sweetness with the apple being subtle. Light acidic notes and sweet lightly spiced doughy notes go back and forth. I need to try another Faro.

bottle @ home. Gustosa, acisa e dolce contemporaneamente con schiuma cremosa e corpo soffice. Un pelo astringente sul finale ma ben bilanciato dalla dolcezza generale.

This was my first Faro Lambic. It still has the characteristic lambic sourness, but is tempered by the added sugar so its a balanced sourness. I liked it for its uniqueness.

Pours dark amber with a small amount of fizz. Smells a bit sour with a hint of funk. Taste is sour, with hints of funk and wheat. Light-bodied with a slick, oily texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Lindemans Faro finishes with some pleasant sourness.

RickFifty (1238) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2015
Golden brown color, tiny off-white head. Brown sugar nose, vinegar, overripe fruit. Heavy sweet taste, sour notes, earthy, hints of spice and raisins. Light body, soft carbonation.

(Flasche) Es hat eine bronzene Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sauer, etwas moosig, harzig und spritzig. Der Geschmack ist anfangs süß, medium sauer, sonst wie das Aroma. Bittere gibt es keine. Das Mundgefühl ist spritzig und angenehm.

JanEric (1230) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Amberbrown, lots of co2, no head. First a malty hoppy aroma, later some fruit. Alzo somewhat sweety. Smooth taste, sweetish, also fruity, slithgly bitter. Somewhat dry finish. Fresh thirstquenching beer.

ComradeK (1230) - 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.

Dark orange color with nice off white head. Aroma of wine, cider, wet wood, basement aroma as well. Taste is well balanced sweet and sour. Light body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. Nce lambic.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Very Amber sugary color. The smell is nicely sourish and smells like brett. The taste is lightly sourish and quite sweet. I still don’t like the waste of perfectly good lambic just to add sugar, but I still like it.
