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.

An okay lambic, more sweet than I’d like, but the subtle funk is pleasant. Golden and crisp.

Fruktig och man känner på aromen att ölet är sött. Första smaken är mer syrlig av äpple men övergår snabbt till en sötare smak.

Sweetened version of an already quite sweet lambic beer. I don’t understand this need, especially for Timmermans beers.

Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. Clear, amber colour. Film of fine, white head. Aroma is baked apple. Brown sugar. Light, bready, yeasty tartness. Taste is soft toffee. Baked apple. Palate is fluffy soft. Light oiliness. Finish is light sweet, and light tart. A beer of contrasts. Nice beer.

Bottle at Delirium Cafe, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out candied sugar, light funk, and light wheat. Flavour is quite sugary sweet, with candied sugar, light caramel and maybe a hint of buried funk. Acceptable faro, but really sugary and simplistic. Not good.

37.5cl bottle served cool at home in a Hoegaarden Grand Cru tulip. Dark, crystal clear amber with an off-white head that recedes to a skim. Vinegary sweaty foot aroma, not unpleasant. Tart apple sweet and sourness in the flavour: You can taste the candy sugar, then a tart acidic sourness steps in. Medium bodied, astringent in the mouth, becoming slick as it provokes the saliva glands. Wouldn’t want it as a session beer, but an interesting diversion on the beer journey.

Rousse, limpide. Odeurs de lambic ou de geuze fruité: en bouche par contre acidité très subtile. Effervescence mince, finale sucrée de cassonade qui arrive slm après la gorgée. Pas mauvais du tout, mais plutôt particulier point du vue style.

Light amber coloured beer with a quickly disappearing head. Light carbonation. Typical lambic sourness, but masked with a unnatural sweetness of added sugar. Not my cup of tea.
