Compared to their other beers - this one is very mellow. Pours yellow with a small off white head. Mellow aroma and slightly sweet flavor - this is a very easy beer to drink. Well done.

Fresh at the brewery. Delicious and smooth, but a bit overly sweet compared to the other samples that afternoon. Still a delightful beer and worth drinking again.

Draft at Moeder Lambic. Slightly cloudy yellow amber pour, small bubbly off-white head. Fruit, leather, lots of sugary sweetness, slight sourness in the background. I am not that impressed, but then I again I really dislike sweetened beers.

One of the most beautiful Lambic experiences. Something sensational. I had it at Cantillon Brewery and at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. It is extremely particular thanks to the addition of rock candy. A great balancing between the sharp and sweet. An intense play of flavours giving us a special sensation. Absolutely to try whenever is possible. Served directly from the jug.

[3317-20100809] Plastic keg. Caramel toast aroma has strong un-fermented wort and light toasted grapes. Hazy, dark brown body with quick off-white bubbles. More like wort or fermenting apples in the flavour, with just some notes of sweet caramel. Medium-full body has a sour background. Not my favourite style but it grows on you after several sips.

Cantillon faro. Draft at Chez Moeder Lambic Fonteinas... First faro . Pours a reddish plum brown hue, mostly opaque, with a huge fluffy soapy white head... Aroma of sweet sugar confection and a berry plumminess to coincide with it...Flavors have a plummy berry presence, semi-tart through the beginning and middle and finishes on a sweeter bent but not a total suger bomb like I was expecting. Body is soft as is the carbonation. A little sweet for my liking but thatís what I was coming to expect from a faro. 7/4/7/4/14

Pitcher @ the brewery. Pours dark orange. Aroma of candy sugars, caramel, caramel cloying the mouth. Not much going on because of the flatness.

Damico (2684) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2010
On tap in Brussels at Moerder Lambic. The aroma is of burnt brown sugar, very potent. The dark caramel color has a creamy cappuccino head on top. There are big sweet notes in the flavor, that unlike of Cantillon! The notes probably come from the sugar and caramel added which are very potent on the palate, especially in the beginning. Then the noticeable tart flavor characteristic of Cantillon comes at the end and settles smoothly.

On draft at Moeder Lambic. Pours a dark copper almost brown color with a huge white head. On draft. The aroma is sweet sugars and fruit, some dry yeast. Unlike other Faros, a strong fruity lambic base only added to with sugars. Quite natural and earthy. Wonderful. I had two glasses.

It took a second visit to Belgium to finally get to sample Cantillonís faro, I had it cask conditioned at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours a cloudy amber color with a medium, bubbly, beige head. Nice aroma of white wine, acidity, mild funk and candi sugar. Very good flavor of candi sugar with some acidity to balance the sweetness, thereís also some funk and a lactic presence. The body is light with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Itís definitely the best Faro Iíve had so far.
