Draught Pour, tons of floating, suspended sugars and yeast. 5 finger pillow-like yellow head. Smells sweet like chilled wort and cereal. Very thin, greasy almost with oily texture. Graham cracker, raw wheat. Finish is a sweet sugary orange flavor.

0,2l from tap at the brewery. Amber cloudy color, small white head. Smells candi sugar, hints of must, lightly fruity. Decent smell, rather sweet. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. Tastes of candi sugar, grassy, earthy, spices, peppery. Finishes lightly sweet with notes of candi sugar, earthy and light musty notes. Pretty decent one, a bit on the sweet side

Quite clear orange color, average sized white to off-white head. Smell and taste are basically a mix between sour and sweet with something else in the background. Can't figure out what it is. Different from most other faros I've had. Interesting.

Sample @ BXL BeerFest 2018, shared with Belgian RB crew, thanks. Dorée assez clair, pas de col. Arôme sur un bon bouquet de grains frais rappelle l’empâtage et résiduel de grains. Pointe de douceur en rétro. Palais est grains virant sur les céréales - douceur marquée de sucre candi avec une petite note d'amertume sur la fin.
