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.

SinH4 (4564) - Garching b. Mnchen, GERMANY - APR 22, 2017
UPDATED: APR 23, 2017 Tap. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma is stinky cheese, some candy sugar, surprisingly much Lambic character in here. Taste is candy sugar, funk. Slight carbonation. Quite nice for a Faro.

rodbod (352) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - APR 13, 2017
Bottle from the Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer. Very clear pale amber, with light froth. Nose is slightly sour/sharp (faintly, malt vinegar), but also oddly perfumed (I cant quite pin down what the aroma is). Taste is light, sweet like barley sugar, a little malty, hardly sour or acidic at all. Palate is very light and short. This beer seems a bit pointless to me.

Cristobal37 (1084) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 1, 2017
UPDATED: APR 1, 2017 Clear copper yellow with little head. Lemony, sour, coca cola, malts aroma. Tastes like iced tea with lemon and some faint sugar cube. It?s really thirst quenching and satisfying. Palate is tart and sticky. I?m surprised actually since I didn?t much enjoy Lindeman?s faro. Maybe the style is my thing after all.

fkoolen (1153) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours amber/murky golden colour, firm offwhite head. Candied sugar dominates over funky and lightly acidic lambiek notes, muscat-ish, quite malty. Big body especially considering the low abv. Medium carbo. Way too sweet.
