77ships (7070) - Antwerpen, - NOV 18, 2012
75 cl. fles gedeeld met Sebletitje tijdens de Belgian Ratebeer Winter Gathering of Ultimate Evil. Gekocht tijdens de opendeurdagen bij de brouwerij. Dit is veel ouder dan ik initieel gedacht had, gebotteld op 25/01/2008 dus dit is al 4 bijna 5 jaar oud, nog leuker dit is houdbaar tot 01/2012 dus dit is eigenlijk al vervallen :) Dit smaakt eigenlijk als 4 jaar oude gebottelde 3F Faro (wat eigenlijk best wel heel indrukwekend is). Ik ben dol op hun Faro, enige echt fenomenale faro een van de hel, heel weinige goede faro’s wat nog altijd niet echt een stijl is wat mij betreft :) Donker extreem wazig amber met weinig in de weg van witte kraag. Geur is een iets lichtere zoetheid, zoete boerderijen, hooi, bruine en kandijsuiker, lichte funk. Dit heeft dezelfde prachtige zoetheid als de vat versie, bijna een oude hop toets, zoete boerderijen, hooi, bruiden en kandijsuiker, overjaars fruiit, zoete sinaasappelschil, karamel, toffee, lichte aarde,… Vol, zeker voor de stijl maar minder vol dan de vat versie, mogelijk de leeftijd, iets minder gas dan gewoonlijk. Lekker, ik ben niet helemaal gekant tegen het feit dat hij overweeg om dit nog eens te maken :)

Bottle shared at DHVL. Hazy amber brown with a bubbly light tan head. Aroma is oxidized with big sherry notes, toffee, tart fruits and a light funk. Flavour is moderate sweet and sour, with very citric acidity in the finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Amber pour with VERY minimal off-white head. Thank you, Adam, for sharing this! Smells like a fake sweet cherry lollipop. Not loving this aroma. Mouthfeel is weak. But the flavor is good for what this is. While there’s some sediment in this pour, this tastes like moldy cherry pie. Oxidation has definitely kicked in. It’s still drinkable and pretty solid, overall. Given that this is a faro, I’m going to be a bit more lenient with my rating...

neongolden (1117) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
(750ml 2008 bottle @ Delirium Cafe, July 27th 2015) Pours fairly clear iced tea colour with a small head of big bubbles and no lace. Aroma is like a hybrid of Flanders bruin and barley wine, sweet and tart with lots of dried fruit, especially prunes and figs and sweet grapes, fortified wine notes (moscatel or tawny port) give a vinous feel, fairly oxidized, oak and a slightly sulphurous funk in the background. On the palate, not nearly as sweet, with a big component of acetic acid for a lambic. Oxidized, moderately funky, crabapple and golden raisins, hints of caramel. Funk towards the finish, some sulphur, hint of mint, oaky. Light bodied with carb almost all gone. I think this had got a little past it (and perhaps not the best venue for handling...), nose promised more but the oxidation had got to the palate. Still quite interesting, would have been even better in slightly nicer condition.

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2015
75cl bottle from 2008, pours red brown to amber, a little hazey. Small white head, quickly dissipating. This is a specialty lambic, closest to a faro since dark candi sugar was added, though the Lambic portion was untraditional using some amber and Munich malts. Wheat is its main ingredient. 8ABV, one time brew. Great sweet-sour balance, oak, lactic acid, earthy notes, lambic and dark candi. Also whiskey notes. Beautiful!

2008, 750 c&c from Bu11zeye. Pours hazy darkish brown with no head. Aroma is essentially elderly malt with spice notes. Med body. Flavor is woody, dark malt with slightly sourish fruits. Finishes a bit tart. It’s great.
