Benzai (15301) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2014
Sampled at the brewery thanks to kermis. Hazy orange golden color, full sized rough off-white head. Smell and taste some sourness, some sweetness, a hint of grains, slightly funky. Decent body and carbonation.

kraddel (7695) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2014
on tap @ open beerdays . New batch, fresh of production. First glass, according to Armand a bit too young perhaps . re-rate will happen if needed . Pours bit darker blonde / yellow / orange . Big white foam ( yet this is a still beer ) Smell is sweet, in a funky way . Taste is sweet, funk, bit of sourness in the back. Full mouthfeel , very dry . Nice , but straffe winter remains my favourite ;)

Bov (12623) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 17, 2014
@3 Fonteinen Restaurant - dark amber-orange beer with a good head retention; aroma of candy sugar, blood oranges and dust; a decent malt backbone; pretty sweet; light honeyish, citric and red fruity finish with a lingering sweetness - balance and tasty yet not my kind of beer

Generous [email protected] Fonteinen, Beersel 27IV after a bike climb up that hill... Paired with/after "Haantje in de faro", an obvious and delicious choice. Blended on site. A cassonade caramel blanket covers the benchmark lambiek funk underneath. Beautiful copper pour. Pretty sure those distinct "medicinal" traces are old hop remnants also imparting some nice cheesy notes and are supposed to be there. In any case they make for a more layered taste experience than most bottled faros, serving nicely as dessert after the draught oude lambiek thirst quencher.

On tap @ Drie Fonteinen Restaurant (Beersel). Murky brown with a spotty off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is of brown sugar along subdued funk and some weird herbal/medicinal notes. Taste is of brown sugar, light funk and a long lasting acrid medicinal finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. That might be the worst Faro I have ever had but I think there might be a problem with the tap line at the restaurant because the Kriekenlambik we had was 100x more acidic (like, way too much) than the last time I had it. I will revisit.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2015 On tap at Drie Fonteinen Restaurant. Taken from notes. Pours hazy dark brownish amber with no head. Nose is typical candi Sugar and caramel, through it all one smells the funky lambic underneath it. I had it on several occasions, Always liked it a lot as it is extremely drinkeable.

On cask at the restaurant. Almost clear gold pour, no head. Aroma is funky, quite a bit of old hay, horseblanket. Taste is sweet, mild funk, not too sweet. Palate is flat, med bodied. Nice Faro.
