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 (4318) - Longueuil, Quebec, - DEC 1, 2012
Bouteille de 25cl. consommer avant le 4 avril 2014. Bire presque ambre avec une mousse blanche parse. Le nez est simple, un peu sucr, les bretts sont peu prsent. La bouche est un mauvais mlange de sucre candi et de vieille geuze ronde.

Maracuja05 (796) - Mainz, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2016
02-11-16 // tap at Le Bier Circus, Brussels. Hazy orange beer, with a solid white head. Smells like applejuice with alcohol. Taste is sweet and a little sour. Candy sugar for sure. Apple sweetness. Not my style.

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.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2016 (Bottle, 0.375 l, at Stadin Panimobaari, 20161013) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sugary sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts and low bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. A pointless sweet brew.

250ml bottle (Beerfox, Riga). Clear dark amber color. Medium size, bubbly white head, stays. Sour, sweet, fruity and bit yeasty in aroma. Sweet, jammy, raspberries and oranges in taste. Sweet and raspberries in aftertaste. Way too sweet for me. Solid brew.

GoufCustom (1704) - HONG KONG - JUL 25, 2016


250ml bottle bought at ICBeer in Kwun Tong.

Clear amber colour; Half finger head and soapy off-white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with quite fizzy small carbonation; Fragrant aroma of rich malt, with strong yoghurt tartness, red wine, light sherry, liquorices, cherry, hint of vinegar, candi sugar and light bread; Strong sweet taste of malt, with moderate wine vinegar, shades of red wine, light red fruits, carbo, sugar, light bread, light lemon and light grass; Close to light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth feel is malty in fairly watery background, dominated by light wine vinegar and pleasing, candi sugar sweetness. Light red fruit with hints of wine and light liquorices. Light lemon to round. Simple and kinda okay Hoppiness is no nose, with light lemon and light grass in taste. Bitterness is from liquorices for an abrupt, light astringent sweet malty finish; Slightly dry after taste. Sweet and very easy to mouth.

Comments: This is just a straight forward Faro, without much sophistication as in Lindemans Faro. While the candi sweetness is mellow and nice, its low wineyness and tartness render it pedestrian. Easily drinkable but not top.
