COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Faro Boon is een bier van spontane gisting waarbij Meerts bier en Oude Lambiek gemengd worden. De lichtbruine kleur en zoetzure smaak worden bekomen door toevoeging van kandijsuiker voor het bottelen. A beer of spontaneous fermentation, made by the blending of ’Meerts’ beer and old Lambics. The light-brown colour, as well as the sweet-sour character, are due to the addition of candisyrup before bottling.

Benzai (8987) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear rusty orange to amber color, instantly disappearing off-white head. Smell "stroop" (Dutch) mixed with apple juice. Taste reminds me a bit of a cider: apples, sweetness, a distant touch of some spice. Improves a lot after a couple of sips.

Jow (2267) - New York, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle at home finally bit the bullet and ordered some things from Belgium. Pours murky amber with thin soapy head. Nose is candied sugar and touch of funk. Tastes of brown sugar, wood funk, molasses, and apple cider vinegar. Enough citrus to cut through the sugary sweetness. Goes down easier than some faro’s. It’s smooth but not over ally complex.
