Lambic and candi sugar, what could possibly go wrong?

Irish whiskey with cream on top is what it looks like. Caramel and molasses is how it tastes. It finishes dry for the amount of sugar. And it has much sugar.

As I've had just one other Faro, I don't have much to compare this to. This is easier to drink than Boon's, hence the 3.5 ratings, but that's not much of a recommendation.

Drank at Cantillon Brussels September 2012

A - Pours a darkish amber colour, no head

S - Little bit spicy and some funk.

T - Wow so balanced. Most Faros are over sweet, but this is restrained with some tartness.

M - No carbonation and medium body.

O - Not like any other beer that I have had. But well recommended. Easily the best Faro that I have had to date.

On cask at Moeder Lambic.

A finger uneven white head from the hand pull when delivered to my seat,quick dissipation to uneven bubble size broken head. Deep gold clear body no visible carbonation ala cask. A bit sweet in the nose, a surprise. Taste is certainly on the sweet side of the rest of Cantillon products, big ass funk, wet hay, tart not sour. Mouthfeel well on the light side, no effervescence. Glad I was able to try this rare unbottled treat, but on to bigger and better things. Worth a try for the ticker (which I'm not).
