Faro is produced by adding candy sugar to the lambic. Faro was very famous in the 19th century in the Brussels region. With it´s sweet and refreshing taste it is still appriciated in our moderntimes. This delicate beer was created two centuries ago by the van Houtryve brewer´s family.

DrNosha (1601) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2016
37,5cl Flasche mit Champagner Verschluss. Orange klare Farbe. Heller feiner Schaum. Saures Aroma. Apfel, Gurke mit einem Stich Essig. Kräftiger Apfelgeschmack. Gewürze, Tolles Süsse-Säure Verhältnis. Langer Apfelgeschmack im Abgang. Erinnert an einen sehr guten Cidre. Für mich ist dieses Bier völlig unterbewertet.

ciocanelu (1134) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 16, 2016
Clear amber color with a bit of light beige head. Aroma is malty with some Belgian sugar and a hint of balsamic vinegar. Taste starts sweet with a bit of caramel, malt and sugar. Medium body and carbonation. For a sweet lambic, it’s quite good. Not overly sweet and it also has a rustic feel to it.

Rubin77 (916) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 2, 2016
F: big, white, good retention. C: deep gold, almost clear. A: malty, candy sugar, apples, caramel, light basement, some vegetal, hint of vinegar. T: malty, sugary sweet together with tarty apple, peach fruitiness, citrus, mushrooms, light body, good carbonation, I am wondering by some high scores about this beer, for me refreshing but nothing special, lack of some complexity, 375ml bottle from Carrefour in Brussels.

Grzesiek79 (3941) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 25, 2016
Lambic dosladzany, slodki ale i przy tym na szczescie odrobine kwasny. Owocowy, wyczuwalne jabjka, Mala pianka, lekko metne, kolor jasnej herbaty. Zapach wyrazisty. Przydala by sie odrobina wiecej wytrawnosci
