Intro: A 200ml pour 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.
