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.

rodenbach99's rating

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, - DEC 1, 2012
Bouteille de 25cl. À consommer avant le 4 avril 2014. Bière presque ambrée avec une mousse blanche éparse. Le nez est simple, un peu sucré, les bretts sont peu présent. La bouche est un mauvais mélange de sucre candi et de vieille geuze ronde.

Nische (2194) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2017
Tap at Beer Temple. Golden orange with a brief head. Musty aroma and taste with butterscotch, misc spices, sugar. Sweet and syrupy.

Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2017
Bottle - Butterscotch and caramel notes. Clear copper with a decent white head. Sweet, caramel, golden raisin and bready notes.

jookos (6743) - FINLAND - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle. Golden orange colour. Malty, bit cellary, but sugary molassey too. Med bodied, malty, bit dark green herby. Sweet malty, english tea, nectar like.

250ml bottle in tulip glass. Clear amber with a tiny white head. Sweet, slightly sour aroma, flavour is tart, apple, sugar, bit watery

SinH4 (4709) - Garching b. München, 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.

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 22, 2017
At Zythos 2017. Pours clear amber. Aroma is candy metallic farmhouse, funk Body is medium, sweet, sugary, low carbonation. Sweet palate, sticky. Okay for a faro.

tderoeck (9479) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 21, 2017
10/IV/17 - 25cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 19/I/17 (2017-437)

Clear orange amber beer, small creamy off-white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, caramel, sugary, fruity, pretty oxidized. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, pretty sugary, some caramel, oxidized, some candied orange peel. Aftertaste: slightly bitter, sugary, caramel, bitter marmalade, little funky, lemony touch.

rodbod (356) - 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 can’t 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 (1123) - 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.

CH-303 (2197) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - MAR 30, 2017
Appearance: Light brown, hint of orange. Slight white head.
Aroma: Light fruits, light sourness. Candy sugar?
Taste: Sweet, sugar, light fruits, very light sourness. Ok.
Bought: Beers of Europe, 250 ml, £1.59
Info: 24/3-2017, BB: 20/4-2018
