On tap (or was it cask?) at Moeder Lambic.

Brownish-orange color, no head, just some bubbles on top settling from the pour. Flat aroma, cardboard and a little toffee sweetness. Bland taste, earth, burnt toffee, stale yeasty funk, strange herbal bitterness. This one was pretty rough, and didn't do much for me.

I guess the Faro style just isn't my type. Overly sweet, not nearly enough funk.

Clearly a spontaneous fermented base with sweet caramelized notes.
