75 cl. fles gedeeld met Sebletitje tijdens de Belgian Ratebeer Winter Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Gekocht tijdens de opendeurdagen bij de brouwerij. Dit is veel ouder dan ik initieel gedacht had, gebotteld op 25/01/2008 dus dit is al 4 bijna 5 jaar oud, nog leuker dit is houdbaar tot 01/2012 dus dit is eigenlijk al vervallen :) Dit smaakt eigenlijk als 4 jaar oude gebottelde 3F Faro (wat eigenlijk best wel heel indrukwekend is). Ik ben dol op hun Faro, enige echt fenomenale faro een van de hel, heel weinige goede faro’s wat nog altijd niet echt een stijl is wat mij betreft :) Donker extreem wazig amber met weinig in de weg van witte kraag. Geur is een iets lichtere zoetheid, zoete boerderijen, hooi, bruine en kandijsuiker, lichte funk. Dit heeft dezelfde prachtige zoetheid als de vat versie, bijna een oude hop toets, zoete boerderijen, hooi, bruiden en kandijsuiker, overjaars fruiit, zoete sinaasappelschil, karamel, toffee, lichte aarde,… Vol, zeker voor de stijl maar minder vol dan de vat versie, mogelijk de leeftijd, iets minder gas dan gewoonlijk. Lekker, ik ben niet helemaal gekant tegen het feit dat hij overweeg om dit nog eens te maken :)

I’m very happy I got some bottles of this beer. Bottle looks great. Small cork that almost flew of the bottle when I tried to remove the wire. Very zippy in the glass, huge head. Dark copper-brownish. Sweet aroma. Starts very strong but not alcoholic, quite spicy with intense earthy-woody notes, hidden caramel, a little bit vanilla. Finish more sour without being to much. The sour notes fit perfect to the eartly spiciness. Very, very drinkable. I love this beer and it will be hard not to open the other bottles I have within the next week...

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2011 Fantastisk faro , en gueuze boch .sødlig/sur smag af rugbrød, grape og maltbolcher. Rødlig, uklar med hvidt tæt skum Fik den igen nytårsaften. Var bare endnu bedre end sidst. Er rigtig god til is og søde ting.

very happy to have found this one ! onley had one faro so far (being the lindemans) wich chocked me on how much i like it ! 3 fonteinen is my favourite sour by far, so those 2 combining? hell yeah ! and the pure luck to find this , even lifts my happiness and high expectations up ! opens very agresively ! twisting the metal cap makes the cork pop itself out already ! no gusher, though ( luck stikes again !) pours blonde-orange, imidiatly fading foam. great how insanely much smell this has ! definetly more sourness than the lindemans ( yeah i know, what a shock ) taste : waaw very sour ! that means, for a faro. kinda uncomparable with the other one i had ! this ’apple’ taste as i can onley desribe it ( aplle with the sourness of it) comes in the swallowing and first aftertase, followed by that .. typical 3 fonteinen-ish taste, and other apple taste. this drinks inb layers and is definetly very very nice ass well ! if this were available like lagers, i’d drink faro lake a lagerboy drinks lager , if they keep tasting this nice ! glad i didnt share the bottle :p

Brownish orange pour with a vivacious offwhite head. The aroma holds huge funk, must, and acidity, all balanced in the perfect proportions. The flavor is quintessential 3 Fonteinen balance with some puckering sweetness. Very low residual sugar levels. Ultra dry crisp palate with only the slightest lingering sweetness. Truely amazing.

0,75L corked bottle. Shimmering orange colored body, with a carpet of beige bubbles on top. Layers of aromas; Mild fruity acidity, port, wooden tones, faint vinegar and sourcream. Notes of mould and cellar. Taste is mostely fruity acidic and sour, but well rounded by a perfect amount of residual sugars from the malts. Nice vinous with tones of wood, spices and soft toasted malts. Suggestions of farmyard and cellar. Strong body. Smooth in the mouth. An utterly complex and perfctly balanced beer. I’m amazed, by far the best I have had in this genre.
