“In 1978, our family brought Faro-Lambic to centre stage. A true local product!”
Lambic is one of the world's oldest beers. According to some, it is also the best, even if its characteristic acidity does not please all palates. To offset this acidity, some decided to add sugar to it. Thus Faro-Lambic was born. Adding sugar syrup to lambic was a revelation at the time of Bruegel. (Some even argue that without Faro-Lambic, Bruegel would have been deprived of inspiration and would have remained an ordinary amateur painter whose canvases couldn't even have been sold at a flea market.) Until the 19th century, Faro-Lambic was very prevalent in the Brussels region. Folklore there was frequently associated with it, and the divine liquid flowed like water. Then Faro-Lambic fell into oblivion. It was not until 1978 that our family brought it back to centre stage. Or centre Senne, as you prefer. Particularly appreciated after physical exertion, Faro-Lambic is not only easy to drink, it is a joy to do so.
A lambic that has matured on oak for one year to which sugar syrup is added.
Good to know : In the fields, workers drank a Faro-Lambic to regain their strength. Today, our Faro-Lambic is the perfect beer for recovering after physical exertion. It is the favourite beverage of amateur cyclists!
“I have never had such an interesting lambic before. So sweet. So balanced. Mild sour and some wood.”
“What a nice after dinner treat, tart yet sweet, but balanced and not overbearing in any aspect. Just really good.”
