The basis of Boon Faro is Meerts, a lighter Lambic to which candy sugar is added, giving it a striking sweet taste and brown color. The sweetness is not overpowering giving the beer a delicate sweet and sour character. Faro is essentially a softer version of true Lambic beers. With an alcohol content of just 5%, it’s very easy to drink and a perfect thirst quencher on those hot sunny days.
