A 200ml pour as Faro Classic, into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass from the hand pump at 3 Fonteinen lambik-O-droom.

Appearance: A cloudy dark orange colour with a one finger white head that had great retention that just stuck around forever and some nice lacing.

Aroma: Amazing aroma, candy sugar, apricot, touch of orange, musty wood, light caramelised apple and caramel.

Taste: Sweet, but not overly so like other faros I’ve tried. Hay, apricot, brown sugar, woody oak and tea.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth, light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall: An amazing faro. The only one I haven’t found to be overly sweet so far, maybe because of the combination with some good flavours.

Pours a cloudy orange color with a small bubbly head.

Smell is utmost funky, with a lot of blue cheese and dried mushrooms. Some lemon prevails, adding a pleasant crispness to the otherwise surprisingly musty and heavy nose.

Has a medium, soft carbonation, with a pleasant twist between sugars and the tartness, resulting in a well balanced, refreshing beer.

Sugars enhance the lemony sourness of the beer, at the same time they prevent a lot of the more subtle layers of flavor to unfold, which are muted due to the more prominent sugar. The carbonation keeps everything in great balance, adding a light mineralic quality to the taste. Finishes more sour than it began, with lots of ripe lemons lingering on the palate.

Definitely prefer the unsweetened version over this one, since it is synergizing on a whole different level, allowing a more intriguing depth to unfold.

Lots of diacetyl, could have just been an off batch.
