Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Has a hazy amber colour with some carbonation. Sweet aromas of roasted almonds with the sour lamibc in the background, and some caramel and brown sugar. Very sweet flavours as well and feels like a juice, and is fruity. It reminds me of ice tea actually. Sour lambic in the end and some spices. Pretty flat and slick mouthfeel, and minimal bitter. A fantastic experience of a lambic; really one of a kind.

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2012
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 21 July 2012) Dark amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, acidic nose with notes of caramel, citrus and red berries. Fruity, tart taste with red fruit, citrus, hints of caramel and a touch of brown sugar in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Faro has never really been my thing, but this was quite nice.

Cask @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. The appearance is deep chestnut amber with a massive white head. The nose is concentrated sugary sweetness, some light pancake syrup. Mellow and inviting. The taste is simple sugar, lemon, lactic acidity. Light and drinkable. Soft. Not overly complex, but really pleasant and refreshing. Very nice!

adnielsen (10360) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Cask @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. A bit hazy, dark orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Dark fruity (raspberry, boysenberry), fairly sweet, spritzy lemon soda, light wood, somewhat herbal, mildly tart aroma. Earthy, sweet dark berry/raspberry, a touch syrupy, soda-like flavor. Not overly complex but smooth drinking. Aftertaste dissipates pretty quickly.

marcus (8589) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Glass poured from the little brown barrel at Cantillon. Pours cloudy red with no head at all and a tannic aroma. There is a sweet fruity and candi sugar flavor with a tart finish. A truly traditional faro.

From the little brown plastic barrel (growler they took to go) at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas)

My wife got this one evening, I got it the next. hers was pretty much flat, mine had a small tight well retained head. The color is a kind of orange.

The aroma is funky and lemony with a mild bit of livestock barn & some sweetness.

The flavor is very lemony, but also earthy and the sugar seems to be of a sort of brown varietal. This is not overly sweet but does the sweet and sour balancing act about as well as any other Faro I had in Belgium. At no point did it seem cloying or oversweet and it allowed for the earthiness of the lambic to play in as much as the sugar.

23/VI/2012 - little plastic container straight from the brewery @ proeverij bieren van spontange gisting (Gentse Biervereniging) - BB: n/a (2012-646)

Note: drank this for the first time at the Cantillon Kwintessens 2010, when I wasn’t taking notes at every beer event yet. Had the luck to try it again, without even going to Brussels. ;-)

Clear light amber beer, no head. Aroma: bit metallic, lime juice, some barnyard, wet autumn leafs, some chloride (swimming pool). MF: no carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sweet start, caramel, nice lemon acidity, little bitter. Aftertaste: lemony, some bitterness, a bit earthy, nice acidic finish, caramel. Drinking this faro is not a punishment...
