King_Alex_II (386) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Amber color with little foam. The smell is weirdly like old sweetness. The taste is sweet but not sugary. No carbonation with little to no sourness. Not as convincing as hoped.

SinH4 (679) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Dark golden color with white head. Aroma is sweet, balsamico, a bit of subtle funk. Taste is fruity-sweet, not really sour, the Lambiv character gets lost. Not very complex but this is a lovely Faro!

bartlebier (2420) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2015
Jug pour from le mix du jour@source, 02/2015. Silky smooth dark amber pour, flattish. aroma of Cassonade Graeffe aka cured beetroot sugar stored in an open oak container, sprinkled with the mild balsamics of ripe lemons. Drinks likes only slightly funky lemonade, slick not sticky. - My take on the FAQ No. 1 regarding this style: Faro represents a historical chapter in lambiek’s demotic survival during the dark 70’s-90’s ages of oude geuze’s steady decline and could still be considered the broad public’s preferred imbibing state...

January 23, 2015. On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas.
Cloudy orange with a large white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, some fruity tartness with citrus and green apples, light funky. Taste ss sweet caramel with some fruity and funky notes, dry finish with oak and earth.

BlizzardOz (14) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontinas. Pours a nice hazy amber with a reasonable foamy white head. Funky aroma. Citrusy sourness but with an overwhelming caramel sugary flavour (stronger sweetness than I have had before in a Faro). Couldn’t help wonder why on earth you would add that sweetness to a delicious Cantillon lambic...

jmgreenuk (5530) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 5, 2015
Tap at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Poured a hazy medium amber with a big frothy white head. The aroma is rich sweet citrus rind, light spice. The flavour is moderate to strong sweet, light sour with a smooth sugary sour yeast palate and some lingering sourness in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Lots of sweetness up front and the sourness is all there at the back of your throat. Very refreshing indeed.

Cerveza turbia de color naranja claro, cabeza espumosa pequeña. Aroma a malta, caramelo y azúcar moreno. Sabor dulce y amargo del cítrico, un final seco a madera, realmente buena.

Sickly sugary sweet with some sour aftertaste. Somewhat fruity, not my style. Cask at moeder lambic.
