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.

chinchill (3215) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2015
On tap at the Mariner Inn (aka Six North) in Stonehaven Scotland. Deep, dark amber body with a very good head. Very good feel: near medium body and medium carbonation. A little funk and tart in the nose Flavor: very different frm the aroma. Still some tart but much sweeter than tart. Lightly spicy with hints of cherries and other soft ripe fruits. O: as per style, a touch too sweet for my taste but still much enjoyed.
