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.

(On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 24 2015) Pours very murky burnt orange with bubbly lingering white cask head. Aroma has a real sweet undercurrent of caramel and a bit of dates and figs, musty with light Brett, odd overtone of a chlorine pool building. Flavour is sweet candy sugar, tart acidity and a bit of sourness underneath, kind of fruity with fig, orange and a little lemon. Bit of a soft apple cider character going on. Bretty funk is present if not super strong, as is the wood - leather and light barnyard. Medium cask mouthfeel with no carb. Aftertaste is tart and a little astringent. Faro is probably not my style but in fairness this is a pretty good brew and if I weren’t surrounded by unsweetened lambics I’m sure I’d be happy to drink another.

Another great brew. I’m assuming I’m smelling faro...Lots of grain and sweet and malts with a nice sour and funky and kick. Great.

Mesjasz (247) - Lodz, POLAND - JUN 23, 2015
Tap at Moeder Lambic. Hazy orange color, medium white head. Aroma is sweet citrus, funky, light barnyard note, leather. Taste is light sour and sweet. In the past i only drink Faro from lindemans and thinking that Faro is very sweet, broken lambic. Cantillon version is different, nice balanced sour and sweet taste, still have that wild lambic character. Very good and refreshing beer.

Keg at The 24th Weekend Of Spontaneous Fermentation. I have (had) a really poor opinion of Faro as a style having not really tried many of them. I thought if anyone could make the style work then it’s Cantillon. The idea of adding sugar to Lambic is criminal. This wasn’t totally awful though. The sweetness is incorporated quite well. Funky lemon sourness. With a clear barnyard funk. Decent.

ElManana (1086) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2015
On draft at Moeder Lambic with an American friend! Sweet, grain, brown sugar, little citrus. A waste of lambic really, since it's soo sweet almost all complexity is gone.

Draft pour. Pours a somewhat hazy, dark copper color with a white head. The aroma is sweet and sugary with some grassy notes. The taste is mostly sweet and just a touch sour. Medium body and lower carbonation.
