3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Un faro rond et fruité, avec un nez élégant, une bulle discrète et une bouche toute en suavité avec un sucre assez présent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Little bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear copper color with a white head of foam that fizzles out quickly. My first impression of the aroma is that it is a lot like apple cider. Mild acidity coming through with a bit of sweetness. The taste is more sweet than anything, but there is a bit of dry, papery tartness. The paper comes out more as the beer gets to room temperature. Lower carbonation, medium to light in body. Drinks pretty easily, but Isn’t necessarily something I would want to drink in quantity. It’s alright, but not a beer I would seek out again.

Strange candi aroma, not bad but different. Like an older brown sugar. Flavor of some sweet cherry candy and very light tartness. Over all sweetness is present all way through.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a half-pint stemmed glass. Pours an amber color with a minimal head that dissipates fairly quickly. Nose is all muscat with some pear, sugar and light funk. Average to active carbonation with a spritzy mouthfeel. Overly sweet on the palate. The candisyrup really stands out and pushes it to the fruity sweet side. The sourness is very lightly in the background. Slightly dry and sweet finish. My first faro.

Pours a clear copper / amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out artificial sweetener and very light funk. Flavour is very similar, with loads of sugar in the background.. Drinks easy.

[Ölresa Bryssel med Wihlan] nä, det här var dessvärre inte bra. Som att koka socker med mycket vatten sen slänga ned några frukter och en eller två grönsaker

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
At the brewery during the Toer de Geuze - Color: clear deep blond beer with no carbonation and no foam. Smell: high sweet nose, candied and rotten fuits. Taste: high caramel and sweet domination no balance with the normal sour notes of a fare. Aftertaste: dry sensation caramel. One of the worst Faro that I drink ! Very bad !

Great beer from Boon. In the old days, people used to sweeten the sour lambics with a little candied sugar, a drink called faro. This has the sugar already in, and tastes great. Must be drunk pretty cold, though. Artwork is a bit old fashioned.
