Sampled at 3 Fonteinen restaurant. Good looks, spritzy with big head. I’m not a fan of the style but if you have to ruin good lambic, this is probably the most agreeable way to do it ;-)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
After being lectured about Faro by Armand Debelder and Jean-Pierre Van Roy, there was really no way I could leave Belgium without tasting the "real" thing. Of course that had been my intention all along, but the sourness of Debelder was more poignant in the critique of his forsaken colleagues than the lambic itself. Pumped and poured into the austere Drie Fonteinen tumbler, the Faro resembled unfiltered apple juice, opaque and topped of a light beige column of bubbly foam. Apples appear again with strength in the slightly sweet aroma otherwise dominated by raw vinegar. Soft goat cheese and gorgonzola provide a fresh and smoothing funk. The flavor is again highlighted by apple as well as cantaloupe, apricots and peaches. Lightly sour and barely sweet, this is a velvety soft drink with a character more likely to soothe than any beer I’ve had. It’s the salubrious comfort of a mother when you’re sick.

Draught@Københavnske Øldage. Sweetish, slight sugary edge, but with the sourness of the lambic also everpresent. Somehow it seems a little unbalanced, but on the other hand it was quite addicted, very nice combo of sugary sweetness and traditional lambic sourness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2006. Murky orange in colour with no head. The aroma had some sweet fruits (apples. pears), light sourness, some barnyard. The flavour is lightly sweet, lots of fruits (oranges, lemons, peaches and pears), light apple tartness, some brown sugar. Sweet but soft mouthfeel, medium body, very light carbonation. Finishes dry and tart. Phenomenal stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cph Beerfestival. Golden-orange, hazy beer with no head or carbonation. Quite sugar-sweet on the nose, with lemon, fruits in general and some hints of grains. It is sweet and fruity in the mouth, and it also has some orange, lemon and a hint of sourness. It feels quite sticky, but it is pleasant indeed. (060519)
