Faro is a Flemish classic, served throughout pubs in Brussels but uncommon outside Belgium. Historically, sugar or sugar syrup was sometimes added to young, unblended lambic by a bartender - it helped balance the lambic's tart acidity - and eventually lambic brewers began to bottle faro. (Please note that faro the Belgian beer style has no relation to the grain farro - the simlarity in names is coincidental. Lindemans Faro contains no farro.)
Tasting Notes: Fruit and caramel aroma, balanced by subtle complexity and refreshing acidity. The flavor starts sweet, with suggestions of brown sugar or orange marmalade, and finishes with crisp tartness.
