Alengrin (1258) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
’Artificial’ faro with yellowish white, thick moussy but not very stable head and darkish, copper-like amber colour, clear. Artificial sweetness in the nose, caramel, subdued lambic funkiness, tea, honey, dried leaves, sweet tobacco. Taste begins fresh and crisp, sweet caramel candy along with a lemony sourness, bit artificial, lambic coming through quite late and in a shy way, in the form of a light funky sourness and bitterishness. A bit more lambic-like than its congeners by Lindemans and Timmermans but from this brewery I had expected something more earthy and funky.

Ernesto987 (3687) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 21, 2014
ticking a faro, in a lambic basket in amsterdam. Usually giradins are very tart and the late additional sweetness really balanced this out, very nice and much more drinkable than regular giradin

mateuszk (231) - Poznań, POLAND - JUN 19, 2014
Botle. Red amber with small white head. Aroma sour with malty notes. In taste sourness with soy sauce, very bad. Low bitterness, medium body, high, lively carbonation. Maybe it’s a good beer but definitely not my bottle.
