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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 25cL. Home. A beautiful brown orange clear beer with a small ephemeral white head. Toffee aroma, acid fruit, wood, light smoke. Medium sweet balanced with light lasting sour. Light body, thin texture, average to good carbonation (fizzy on the tongue), sweet finish with a sour woody note. Overall, good & refreshing faro.

The first faro for me. if this one is typical for the style I have to say I like other lambics styles better. It is deep amber with almost no head and little carbonation. Flavor has some sourness but the candy sugar mostly eliminates this. There is some of the lambic brett funkiness and a vinous note. Interesting but I am not a fan.
