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.

Jow (2200) - 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.

AtronSeige (645) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 2, 2014
Aroma: Medium Citrus, lemon, sour. Light barnyard, honey, Appearance: Clear copper body. Small off-white head. Poor head retention. Flavour: Medium-high sweetness, light sourness, fruity, honey, grapefruit, Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium-high carbonation, light tartness, Overall: Too sweet for a lambic. Still an enjoyable beer, maybe a good step for someone new to lambics. 250 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 17E. Gueuze - Faro

Bamsen78 (3224) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle @ Nüetnigenough, Brussels. Pours slightly hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit, with vinous and estery notes. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with nites of malt, caramel and yeast, and some vinous touches. Sweetish and slightly metallic finish. I like it but it appears too sweet for the style, possibly due to the presence of the syrup.

TheJvd (898) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2014
25 cL bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet with some apples, a little bit of barnyard and some sugar. Taste is also a bit sweet with some sugar, caramel and a very soft sourness. Medium body and carbo.

prawlie (1153) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
25 cL bottle at the M-Cafe in Leuven. Clear amber, no head to speak of. Sweet, smooth and a touch sour, easy to drink. Light fruit aroma, dry and sour. Reasonable example of the style. Fair, but hardly exceptional.

maekchu (2196) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Light fruity (grape and berries) malt and sugary nose. Hazy dark copper/brown, with a massive raocky head. Sweet, with a light acidity, mild green apple-like flavors. Finishes with a push of sugar. Medium body. Refreshing at first, but then the sugary sweetness gets to be a bit much.
