Faro Boon is een bier van spontane gisting waarbij Meerts bier en Oude Lambiek gemengd worden. De lichtbruine kleur en zoetzure smaak worden bekomen door toevoeging van kandijsuiker voor het bottelen. A beer of spontaneous fermentation, made by the blending of Meerts beer and old Lambics. The light-brown colour, as well as the sweet-sour character, are due to the addition of candisyrup before bottling.

250ml bottle (Stadin Panimo, Helsinki)
Ugh, sweet aroma. Ugh sweet taste. Corny sweetness. Yes, this is faro, yes this is sickly sweet and even corny. Sorry, faro is not my kind of beer. This ticks all the faro buttons, but I dont like faro.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A pointless sweet brew.
