Bamsen78 (2974) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
Draught @ Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Pours murky amber with airy but stable white head. Clear vinous aroma, with subtle notes of fruit and hops. Bittter, hoppy onset, giving way to hefty vinous notes and touches of fruit and hops. Creamy mouthfeel. Vinous aftertaste with estery hints. Very good.

Ernesto987 (3572) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pint at Ches moedeur, standard light barnyard cantillon with a molasses light sweetness in the background, minimal additional sweetness adds a layer of flavors, interesting

Habanero (2484) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2014
Tap. Hazy amber body with a small, white head. Aroma of barnyard, funk, yeast and brown sugar notes. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied oily texture and average carb. An excellent faro.

I am enjoying these faro, brews. Garnet colour, wonderful bubbles and lace. Sweet n sour slight vinegar. Some oak Chardonnay characteristics. Well done.

Bov (9304) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 17, 2014
from Moeder Lambic Fontainas - hazy red-orange beer under a long lasting pale beige foam; red fruits and hints of vinegar; pretty sweet, medium-bodied, juicy red fruity finish with metallic notes

VDuquerroux (226) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2014
On tap, 25cL. @Moeder St Gilles, Brussels. An unclear orange beer with brown hues with almost no head. Poor persistence. Aroma is woody and smoky with an apple touch. Acid lactic. Wood and apple are easier to appreciate there than in the "pure" lambic version. First light sweet, then sharp sour note. In the middle and the end, heavy lasting sour. Good balance between sourness and sweetness. Sweetness doesn’t hide, it always underlies sourness. Nice dance. Light body, sugar thin texture, flat carbonation, sour finish with a light sugar sweet background. Overall, I really enjoyed this Faro : more woody and fruity, nice soursweet taste. Yes!

vipinvelp (2072) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Somewhat opaque darker yellow with bubbly white foam head. Bittersweet aroma and taste, you have to get used to this. Interesting mouth feel. (Brussels 201405)

manker (44) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Cask @ Moeder. Almost sweet, murky and thick. Honey and sugar mixed with apples, lemon and minimal funk. More true to style than other overly sweetened Faro’s I’ve had. Goes down way too easy and great as in-between-lambic beer.

Nocturne (752) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Quite a dark shade of amber. One finger of head that recedes to a ring. Not getting much of anything, buttery caramel with a hint of fruit is all. It doesn’t taste sugary sweet like some faros, which may be a plus for some people, but for me there was little to grab my attention. Very still, carb seems low. This slipped past a bit unnoticed.

Murky pour from a pitcher while touring Cantillon brewery with Joe. Very interesting to try, a bit sweet with a viscous, almost-thick presence in the small tasting glass. Farmhouse aromas with candi sugar, caramelized note on the finish. Nice to try this one.
