Cantillon Faro 5% at Moeder Lambic pours an orange brown with a foamy beige head. Musty fruity wine and sweetness in the nose. Tart but sweet with some acidity and sourness. Wonderful.† Best Faro Iíve ever had, then again this is also the only authentic one Iíve had.

TEJA (1742) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2015
Lasting white head. Almiost clear amber color. Strange beer / acidic wine aroma with fresh fruit acid. Sweet taste with a harsh astringen bitterness and small acidity in the taste. This is a strange beer.

(On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 24 2015) Pours very murky burnt orange with bubbly lingering white cask head. Aroma has a real sweet undercurrent of caramel and a bit of dates and figs, musty with light Brett, odd overtone of a chlorine pool building. Flavour is sweet candy sugar, tart acidity and a bit of sourness underneath, kind of fruity with fig, orange and a little lemon. Bit of a soft apple cider character going on. Bretty funk is present if not super strong, as is the wood - leather and light barnyard. Medium cask mouthfeel with no carb. Aftertaste is tart and a little astringent. Faro is probably not my style but in fairness this is a pretty good brew and if I werenít surrounded by unsweetened lambics Iím sure Iíd be happy to drink another.

Mesjasz (276) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Hazy orange color, medium white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, funky, light barnyard note, leather. Taste is light sour and sweet. In the past i only drink Faro from lindemans and thinking that Faro is very sweet, broken lambic. Cantillon version is different, nice balanced sour and sweet taste, still have that wild lambic character. Very good and refreshing beer.

Keg at The 24th Weekend Of Spontaneous Fermentation. I have (had) a really poor opinion of Faro as a style having not really tried many of them. I thought if anyone could make the style work then itís Cantillon. The idea of adding sugar to Lambic is criminal. This wasnít totally awful though. The sweetness is incorporated quite well. Funky lemon sourness. With a clear barnyard funk. Decent.
