Draft - Grainy sweetness with some funk, cloudy orange copper with almost no head. Light funk, sweet and sour. Touch of acidity in the finish.
From the pump at Lambik-o-droom. Hazy amber with no head. Sweet grain, grassiness, hay, apple, sugar, honey, funk. Moderate sweet and light bitter and sour. Medium body, low carbonation.
On tap. Trübes dunkel orange goldenes Bier. Geruch fruchtig würzig, hefig, reife Pfirsich. Geschmack fruchtig, leicht säuerlich, Steinobst, würzig, hefig, nicht zu süß, lecker.
Süßlicher Beginn mit bitter brotigen Noten. Geringe hintergründige Säure, die Bitterkeit ist aber deutlich führend. Angenehm würzig, 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.
