brokensail's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 12/20
brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Pours an amber color with a white head. The flavor is mildly tart and lactic, but its also very sweet. Tons of candy sugar, a bit of grass, and some mild oak. Surprising amounts of lambic flavor to this, too. A bit of lemon and tartness, mild grass, some oak, and very mild funk. Still, it does have a lot of sugar and sweetness to it, as with any faro.

Tap at la Mort Subite. Aroma is candied sugar, caramel, fudge. Taste is sugary, caramel, metallic, just a touch of Lambic left. Medium carbonation. Useful to get a Faro tick, but not more I guess.

On tap at la Mort Subite , Brussels.My first Faro. Kind of strange experience. Sweet and fruity with some sweetness and sourness, reminded me of a Rose Wine.

Alengrin (5105) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
At the Mort Subite caf in Brussels, where this brand is obviously cultivated to a high degree, seen the history behind it. Thin, snow white, quickly opening but still fairly stable head - the fact that this even has a head to begin with, reveals that it is not home made like faro should be in its authentic form. Deep, clear, pretty orange blonde colour. Aroma surprisingly still shows quite some lambic funkiness and complexity; hints of orange, artisanal cider, peach, sherry, dry white wine, wood, wet leather and hay. Soft acidic taste, citrus peel touch, mitigated by candi sugar sweetness as expected, caramelly too, sourish drought does continue though, paired with somewhat sticky, but not too disturbing sugariness. Not the most authentic faro, that much is clear, but it does retain a certain lambic character more so than most other industrial bottled faros.
