Pours a clear copper in the glass. Funky ripe apple aroma which was somewhat pleasurable. Flavor was not as sweet as I expected. Some pear flavor followed by a citrus tang & a dry finish. Overall, it’s drinkable. It’s nice to have tried but not my style. markducommun (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 17, 2016
Darker golden orange, slight opacity, minimal white head; dissipates quickly. Very sweet sugary nose, hint of bright cherry, slight funk, slight tartness. Again, very sweet, but significantly more sour than the nose would suggest. Quite oily, medium body, really coats the palate and just stays. Good, could be great after a few years in the cellar. devman171 (1223) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Way too sweet! Can't handle it, tiny tart body. Drain pour on this one. kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Shared a bottle of this with my family after Christmas dinner. Pale amber. sugary sweet, with a hint of sourness. It’s always a treat to get a chance to try this style. GBZ59 (1217) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - MAR 11, 2012

Tumman kullankeltainen väri, niukka vaahto, tuoksussa ei havaitse juurikaan makeuden lisäksi mitään, maku suloisen makea, aivan vallan mainio makea lambic. Sanoinko jo että tämä on makeaa? kseecs16 (1216) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Bottle, cortesy of Brigadier much thanks! Pours a hazy orange that browns in the center of the glass and maintains a thin off white head clinging to the edge of the glass and a thin bubbly layer over the body of the beer.
Aroma is slightly sour, champagne notes and a hint of funk.
Sweet upfront quickly followed by a potent sour blast which fades away again yielding to a nice fruity sweetness and hints of funk. Lively fizzy carbonation carries the flavor throughout your mouth. Leaves little aftertaste except a tart sweetness coating the gums. cagou007 (1213) - FRANCE - NOV 12, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2016 Pours great amber with a small tan head. Nose is fruity. Armas are caramel, candi sugar and fruits. Low carbonation, medium body. Long sweet finish. LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 this was pretty awesome. aroma of sour cherries, syrup, brown sugar, and white grape juice. the flavor was pretty complex in my opinion. hits at first like cherry dimetap, white grapes, and then if you wait between sips, the flavor sticks on the middle of your tongue like a cherry coughdrop. has a wine-y kind of feel to it. very very sweet the more you drink. after the cough drop flavor wears away, i get some apple cider notes. mmmm...

Aroma - the aroma is somewhat barnyard in nature, somewhat vinous and somewhat sweet undertones, like white fleshed fruits (apples & pears). If you glean even deeper, you’ll find a high quality cheese like aroma, that again points back to that barnyard aroma.
Appearance - the color is an amber color, sort of like a clear honey. The head is white, and from initial pour settles fast, and quickly becomes a thin 1/8" slice of white head.
Taste - is a combination of initial sweetness, and a tart apple like transition
Palate - the body is light. The texture very thin. The carbonation on the tongue very fizzy, nice effervescence. The finish holds a nice sweet and sour on the tongue. Later in the experience there is a little must that shows up on the tongue.
This is my first Faro, and I quite enjoy it. It’s a unique experience. It’s kind of like a cross between champagne and perry cider. I would very much be interested in trying more from the category.
