Copper pour with an off-white head. At opening, sourness hits you but it either goes away or I got used to it. Taste is sweetness from the candi sugar, initial sourness. I find this a wonderful beer experience. All the flavors meld together to form a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

Bouteille avec bouchon 375 ml. Couleur ambre et quasiment pas de mousse. Nez puissant de fruits aigres, cerise, prune, pomme, bois. Forte carbonatation. Bouche aigre puis sucr�e. Saveurs sur les fruits, le caramel, le sucre candi. Finale acide, un peu am�re. Sympa.

Vynikající lambik, pro mě první zkušenost s Farem, a musím říct, že velmi příjemná. Osvěžující sladké pivo, s jemnou pěnou a bohatým ovocným, sladkokyselým aromatem.

Vineous, fruity apple aromas; light funk and oak. Still some residual sugars, light acetic and lactic acid, balanced towards lactic acid.

Mishnok (332) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2017
Looks appealing when poured with a dark yellow/brown colour, bit of fizz. Taste is sweetish sour, quite apple like. You could easily mistake it for a cider. Very nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Juks (757) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 8, 2017
375ml bottle. Pours clear reddish amber, medium sized beige head, doesn’t last. Aroma is tart, apples, bit woody, winey. Taste is soursweet, acidic at first, but sugary sweetness kicks in, caramelly brown sugar, some coca-cola. Sourness and sweetness are quite well balanced, so it’s even possible to drink it. Rather sugary finish. Medium body, average carbo. Haven’t had any other Faro’s yet, but it’s kinda drinkable.

ABT bier van de maand. Tap@ de Klep. Amberkleur. Zoet snoepgoed aroma. Smaakt fris zoet zuur, maar meer zoet. Roosvicee achtig.

Bootlegger007 (225) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 6, 2017
Dark but clear tawny colour with a small diminishing head, aromas of light malts and an earthy yeast characteristic, flavours of sweet fruits, also a sour mouthfeel, refreshing and easy drinking.

Backlog. Bottle purchased @Smak Gdańsk
Sweet candy aroma covers most of what’s beneath, though some grapes and slight barnyard funk comes through.
Taste is sweet, with slight hints sourness. The sugary, artificial sweetness is totally not my thing. Would not have another, one was a tiring experience.

Wendigo (532) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 1, 2017
