Enjoyed on the premises, after the brewery tour. Not being much of a Faro expert, I can still say with some confidence that this is the finest I’ve tried. Murky reddish-brown pour, only a faint hint of carbonation, but that’s perfectly fine. Wet oak, musk, with mild fruits and sugars in the nose. Mildly acidic mouthfeel, and slightly more tartness to taste. Traditional Faro sweetness is there but comparably understated given the tartness elsewhere present. Enjoyed it.

A flat amber pour with no head. Fairly sweet and sugary. Some light tartness remains underneath with a bit of sweet fruit. A touch bland considering the base beer. The flavor is not much different. Sweetness from the sugar is noticeable with only a mild sourness in the background. Some fruit/berry notes, a bit of grass, and mild mustiness.

At Cantillon Quintessence. Start of the day with this one, would be strange to end with a faro ... . This is actually one of the best faro’s I’ve ever drank. Citric sweet character, but not too sweet. Guess the sugar is very well fermented. Although not my style, this faro is pretty nice.

Taster at brewery. Darker honey brown, a couple of bubbles. Sweet cidery aroma. Funky brown sugar, very still wort, some warming spices. Very juicy and still, cinnamon, light molasses. juicy funk, moldy in a nice way

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 (7849) - 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!

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.
