Cask at In de Verzekering tegen de Grote Dorst - Oude faro de cam. A lovely gold with a cork sugary sweetness. Dry, light body. The taste Is tart, cork, woodsy and sweet. It pairs well with a bready traditional belgium rice pudding.

*Old rating. Bottled Jan 2009. The beer is smooth and sourish-sweetish. Easy to drink, fresh and smooth, nice horse-blanket with a sweetish-sorish finish. Nice.

Clear golden colour, dissipating white bubbles. Aroma of apples, light sugar, some light butter. Somewhat sweet flavou, apple, light lemon zest, some funk. Finish sour apple, lambic funk. Quite fresh. Lambic with the sharp edges removed somewhat. Interesting.

AdamChandler (4829) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Dark and hazy burnt orange. 1 finger head. Good cork pop. Very cheesy and brett forward. Citrus taste with for sure a little sweetness. Not a lot of depth compared to a Gueuze but thats expected with Faro. Lemon, orange, sugar. Nice beer ...cant find RBers name who shared!!! but Im so glad to have finally tried this small 37CL bottle

Kr1zz (428) - BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2016 Bottle 75cl bought at Beer Planet in Brussels. Pours dark blond heading to amber; with a big dark white head. Nose: very sweet and sour nose with lots of candy sugar, vinegar all over the place and sewer notes. Taste: the bottle says: no carbonation? Strange there is definitely carbo present. Strong sour in the beginning very very vinegar because the adding of candy sugar. The candy sugar is way to much present (not well balanced). the end is dry with notes of wood and the sugar that sticks around in my throath. I also had a sample at Zythos 2015, the Faro there was much much better. Balance was great.
