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.

erickok (5024) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2016
Copper body, clean and very small head. Soft woody, brown sugar syrup, but not very sweet. Bit leather like, but not terribly complex. Medium sweet with a red wine vinegar like but very mellow sourness. It’s fairly nice but really not my style and still too sweet for me. (25cl bottle from Dekoninck)

Bottle Unknown aroma. tastes like a high production lambic with artificial sweeteners that you find in cheap sodas. Poor.

Samuel214 (345) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Flaska från Beergium. Mörkorange, klar vätska med litet vitt skum som mestadels lägger sig. Lätt vinägersyra med annars väldigt söta toner. Ljus sirap, farinsocker, aprikos. Halvstor kropp, ganska stilla. Inleds friskt med en del syra för att ganska snabbt gå över i söta farinsocker-toner. Brödig, kakdeg, sockersötma, lite citronläsk (Sprite, 7up). Något maltig avslutning tillsammans med ett litet humlebett. Nästan lite bitter i avslutningen. Sött och lättdrucket!

Bottle thanks to Joe. Pours hazy amber, small off-white head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is candi sugar, apple, light funk. Flavor is medium plus sweet, very light funk on the tongue, candi sugar, apples. Medium body, low carbonation. Not terrible.

sjogro (2087) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
At Maakun’s. A bottle pours a dark golden brew with little white head that smells of petting zoo animal poo. Funky funky business. Taste of gumball and concentrated pils syrup, weird doughy flavor of unfermented beer, bit like leaves. Strange herbs. Between sweet and sour. Body medium, fizzy gaz. OK but weird. The masterblend is feeling lucky.

Maakun (2867) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle shared at home. Clear light amber with white head. Wort, massive smell of zoo animal manure, hay, soft funk, brown sugar, apple, light malts and grains, brown bread. Very sweet and light bitter. Over medium bodied with sticky feel. Interesting stuff, but not something I’d want to have again.

The_Osprey (5459) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
25cl bottle at home in Richmond, picked up in Belgium for around 1 euro. 5% BB Jan 2017 as ’Faro Boon’. Dark amber orange, clear, sparkling, small foamy head leaves light lacing. Aroma is apple, shandy, honey and bread. Body is medium, smooth, slightly foamy. Taste is kvass, cardboard, bread, touch of cider. Interesting, and worthy trying, but ultimately too sweet.
