Notes: Our take on Faro is primarily inspired by the older 1800's methodology and brings together Meerts and 2 and 3 year-old M├ęthode Traditionnelle (M.T.) barrels in a 50/50 proportion. Although the selected M.T. barrels exhibit sweet oak and apple cider characteristics, there is no added artificial sweetener or unfermented sugar in this beer. As a nod to contemporary Faro production, we used amber Belgian candi syrup to bottle condition, but this sugar has been allowed to fully referment in the bottle to produce carbonation, a hint of color, and subtle dried fruit and caramelized flavors.

Think this was a Sept 2018 release. Apple and lemon tart, definitely fruity. Mild funk. Very easy drinking. @d half of the bottle 24 hrs later showed even more funk on nthe nose, less apple, more lemon. For only $8 on closeout, this was a QPR darling.

Rare stateside example, no added sweetener or unfermented sugar in the process, bottled conditioned with Belgian candi sugar that ferments out.

Moderately tart and juicy with citrusy grapefruit and lemon, dry oak in the aftertaste. Hazy amber with mild wet hay funk in the aroma. Medium bodied, well attenuated. Very tasty and reminiscent of 3F Faro I had earlier this year before Toer de Geuze.

Had on tap. Find many faros to be very sweet cumulatively, but this was not the case here. The barrel presence really helped balance, plus the lemon, brett, grass, hay, cracker malt and orange zest add in enough crisp flavor by themselves. Smell is more brett and citrus forward than taste. Feel is incredibly airy and bright, wonderful for a faro. Really one of the best faros I have had

On draft. Stemmed glass. Slightly cloudy straw yellow body, one finger white head, good retention, bit of lacing here and there. Smell is funk-forward; oak, dry lemon, a bit of bright citrus zest, mild acetic acidity, leather, white grape zest, a touch of grain. Flavour is incredibly refreshing; it has some complexity to it from the Method Traditionelle component- bright citrusy lemon, bit of leathery brett, damp oak, but tempered by the light acetic acidity and grainy lemon-forward presence of Meerts. The sugar doesn't really play a big role here; it seems to perhaps add a bit of dryness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, good carbonation, incredibly refreshing and re-energizes my palate with every sip I take after drinking the stout I had next to it. A really tasty brew from FFG, it combines the best of the two things they do quite well.
