Compared to the Lambic/Sour Ale family, this Faro is of course quite sweet, but the sweet and sour composition makes some sense to me.

29/VII/17 - 37.5cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ holidays - BB: 9/VI/17 (2017-1151)

Clear orange beer, creamy pretty solid yellowish head, stable, adhesive, leaving some lacing in the glass. Aroma: pretty funky, lemony, bit dusty, wood notes, citrus touch, bit peppery. MF: soft carbon ,medium body. Taste: pretty sweet and sugary start, very acidic as well, lemon, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: sugary sweet, no caramel though, mainly some citric acidity next to the obvious sugar overload you get...
