S├╝├člicher Beginn mit bitter brotigen Noten. Geringe hintergr├╝ndige S├Ąure, die Bitterkeit ist aber deutlich f├╝hrend. Angenehm w├╝rzig, vollmundig. Langer Nachhall. 9/10/9/10//10

On tap at the brewery. Deep dark golden color with big white head. Aroma is candied sugar and a bit of funk. Taste is crazy interchange between candied sugar and the lambic character. Flat. Probably the best Faro I?ve had, although it?s pretty damn sweet.

Cask/Handpump at 3 Fonteinen Restaurant in Beersel. Cloudy dark orange. Small head. Served cask. Sweet with clove and some tart with a touch of eggs and musty mold. Taste is much sweeter than most faro. Table sugar, sucrose and a nice lemon and melon back end. Oily mouthfeel. And sweetness lasts a while

Tasted some years ago at the 3 Fonteinen restaurant. Looked like unblended lambic, no head, no carbonation and misty orange blonde. Essentially the same as 3 Fonteinen young lambic, but with the funkiness and tartness rounded a bit by the added candi sugar, lending it a sweet touch which blends into the whole nicely. Very elegant and one of the best authentic faros (i.e. just plain, unbottled, unblended lambic with sugar added to it) I had so far.

Sample @ the brewery. Amber colour, almost no head. Soft carbonation. Aroma of green apples, lemon and brown sugar. Sweet but also enough sourness. Well balanced. Good faro.
