Bière faro de 4,5 % abv, d’une brasserie fondée en 1822 et membre des Belgian Family Brewers. Malt d’orge et de froment, candi et un édulcorant supplémentaire. Le faro est une vieille bière régionale qui a eu son heure de gloire à la belle époque. Couleur ambre foncé. Clarté nette. Bulles grosses par dizaines partout. Mousse beige clair en nappage crémeux à 1mm. Arômes de lambic, cerise noire, pointe de cassis et myrtille. 1ère bouche très douce sur une marmelade de fruits noirs et rouges, avec un fond aigre doux. Arrière-bouche sucrée au candi, et des accents de malt et de fût. 2ème sur le fruit sucré et le malt caramel. Des parfums de chai un peu distants et de premier niveau. 3ème sur des fruits confits, de la pâte de fruits, nuances de dattes fugaces. La longueur est doucereuse, un peu mielleuse. Des relents de lambic, mais beaucoup de candi et sucre. L’alcool est doux, il suit quasiment en spectateur ce breuvage !! La finale ne ferait pas de mal à une mouche... CONCLUSION : le faro est un genre ancien qui mérite que l’on s’y arrête, mais certainement pas que l’on s’y attarde... parce qu’il manque grandement de complexité.

Bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. Somewhat sweeter than most lambocs. Plenty of bitterness and an arid mouth feel. My wife loved it!

YantarCoast (129) - Moscow, RUSSIA - OCT 3, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours copper with a frothy beige head. Good lacing. Aroma of apples and champagne. Tastes like Russian champagne with added bitterness and sugar Don't think I could drink more two in a row.

"HA! Style #73!! I really haven’t gone out of my way to get this, but it was on the shelf in Seattle staring me down. I thought it’d be a lot like the Geuezes, which i didn’t really like, but i dug this one. the aroma is more tart and funky than the flavor, but the candi sugar in the flavor was pretty cool too. nice sweet aftertaste."

suurjuust (1101) - ESTONIA - OCT 2, 2014
Amber brown beer, small white head. Smells like a lambic with sugary notes, fruit tartness. Flavor is yeast notes, sugary sweetness, tartness. Lively carbonation. Pretty easily drinkable, but pretty boring, no real depth to it.

Ulysse (43) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
Foam had disappeared into nothingness before I could take a good look at it. A lot of added sugar. This would be the beer that could give to some soda addict that wants to discover lambic.

Clear amber body with a thin white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, some citrus fruit, some apple. Taste is heavy sweet with medium to light sourness. Body is light to medium. Sticky texture, soft carbonation.

adamnowek (136) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2014
Almost champagne-like. Really bold sweetness and tartness. If the social tensions of Thanksgiving dinner were a beer, it would be this.
