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.

Bottle, 5%. Mildly citric aroma, hint of CO2, and slightly acetic. Clear amber colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is sweet and caramelly with an acetic hint. Good earthy note.

Alengrin (2630) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
The successor of Faro Pertotale (since 2008, if I’m not mistaken), hazy brownish amber with loose head; candi sugar sweetness, applish sourishness, raisins, citrus peel with refreshing effect, hint of woodiness in the background, slightly drying sourishness playing with the sugar sweetness. Typical bottled faro: this style is at it best when made fresh, as the tradition requires; but then, this tradition has all but disappeared and you’d have to visit beer festivals or lambic breweries in Belgian to taste a really authentic faro. If inaccessible, this will do fine to get to know the style.<

Ulysse (207) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 30, 2014
Sugar cane aroma. It seems it’s made with sugar-candy. Hard to find the lambic. Quite sweet. Would please lots of people. Though I wouldn’t say I’m a "sweet" guy.

Bière qui sent le sucre et qui goûte le sucre. Bière trop sucré, il n’y a pas d’autres saveurs et pas d’arrière goût. Dommage.

Alusmamuts (562) - LATVIA - DEC 7, 2014
Amber clear with medium off-white head. Sweet- and sour, but also malty taste. For me bt oo much sweetness and too much maltness in the taste.

Benzai (9168) - 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.
