3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bouteille de 25cl. À consommer avant le 4 avril 2014. Bière presque ambrée avec une mousse blanche éparse. Le nez est simple, un peu sucré, les bretts sont peu présent. La bouche est un mauvais mélange de sucre candi et de vieille geuze ronde.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Bottle from grove, huddesfield. Clear deep amber with little head. Aroma of grape, pear and honey. Taste is sweet and not much else. A bit fizzy and with a good oily body. I don’t really.like the sour lambics, and i don’t really like this. So i think I’ll avoid them from now on.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.<
