2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. It pours light hazy amber, with a tiny bubbly off-white head and no carbonation. The nose is sweet apple, toffee, lemon ice tea, pine and melon. The taste is lemon ice tea, melon, wood, sweet lime, sweet orange, caramel and grass. This is way too sweet and tastes too much like iced tea for my liking. Faro is not for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel colour, no carbonation, no head. Aroma mainly sweet. Only slight lambic character. Light brett, light caramel. The sweetness seems to overpower all other aromas. Flavour mainly sweet, caramel, quite cloying. Aftertaste lingering sour and dry, bit astringent.
Compared to the oude lambic served the same day, it is very one-dimensional. I see again why I donít quite like faro, it is hiding the best qualities of the lambic. But then again, I never had the Cantillon faro before, so Iím happy Iíve tried it. Not bad, but didnít quite finish the glass as I liked the others of the day more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the cask at Cantillon
Copper amber color with no head.
The aroma is a mixture of a slight sweetness but definetely a great sourness, the tartness is quite far away. The flavor repeats the aroma but has like most Cantillon a lemon like sour touch to it which makes it very refreshing. Dry finish.
Decentfaro but less sweet then you normaly expect from a faro.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
My first authentic faro. Dark unclear amber with a large but dissipating head. Sweet aroma, a little on the mild side, sugar, slight funk and no sourness. The flavour is very sweet without being cloying, some funk, orange and peach also. The palate is quite light.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ottima, amara ma con moderazione e non eccessivamente aspra. Buon corpo, note di legno e resina, con finale secco.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 March 2011, on cask at Moeder Lambic
A: Deep amber with golden hues. Small bubbly head that quickly receded.
S: First notes are caramel and burnt sugar, lambic funk, and wood.
T: Like the nose, burnt sugar and caramel. The sourness and woody tartness of a straight lambic is also present throughout.
M: Medium bodied. Decent amount of carbonation and zip considering this was on cask.
O: Of the few faros out there, this is one of the better ones.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2014 (14/03/2011) tap@Chez Moeder Lambic, only place where you can get this? except for the brewery, amazing bar, hazy, golden, whiskey colour with no head in a cute, small Cantillon glass, the sweetness from the sugar & the sourness of the Cantillon have seemingly neutralized each other or are at least in a perfect balance, making this a very unique experience, sweet & tart, caramel taste with minor oak, smooth, velvety, bit dry with almost no carbonation, interesting, definitely worthwhile/// sampled @ brewery from cask: wow, this one is far less, no balance here, thinned out a bit, sour, musty old, wet clothes lambic upfront, empty gap followed by dissolved, watery candy sugar, still far from bad but where is the balance in this one? Why the difference in quality & unison in blending? ///////////// Couple of samples later over a long period of time, this one really varies a lot so there is no proper assessment of this one.

On tap at Chez Moeder Lambik Brussels. Looks good in the glass, deep golden, modest turbid, nice head. Starts quite sweet, mild, then more and more sourish, a bit moldy. Long lasting finish, still moldy, modest sweet. Very well balanced. Nice!
