Marduk (5405) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2016
375ml bottle (thanks martjoobolut). Clear golden color. Tiny to almost no head. Acidic, nutty, yeasty, sweat, papery, farty in aroma. Sweet, honey, nutty, fruity in taste. Huhh so sweet. Too sweet for me.

375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut!
OK, now I know that Faro is not the style for me. Pleasant sweetish aroma, some starchiness, but an nice woody aged tartness. Taste is massively sugary, not just sweet, actual sugar. Palate gently slick. Some apricottiness, some artificial sweetener bitterness, bit of apple. Sourness is nice, but sweetness kills this for me.

suurjuust (2661) - ESTONIA - MAR 26, 2016
Bottled 2009, shared by Mart. Darkish amber beer, small white head. Nose is lemons, barnyard funk, old leaves, green apples. Flavor is tart, fruity, dry, woody, some sugary sweetness. Lingering tartness and sweet fruit, lemons. Surprisingly sweet but with a nice mouthfeel.

Vignale (3080) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2016
Flaska från boxbeer.com. 2009 vintage. Orangegul mycket disig vätska med lågt skum. Stor stiltypisk geuezedoft med funk, citrus, friska äpplen, fat och lite honungssötma i bakgrunden. Riktigt välbalanserad där sötman som har drag av nektar och honung lyfter och mjukar upp smakerna men aldrig tar över. Riktigt riktigt gott. Kanske den bästa Faro jag druckigt.

Klimaet (1407) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2016
Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar Aarhus. 2009 vintage. Cork is lightly moldy with some sugary leftovers. Pours hazy dark orange with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is citrussy, grapefruit soda, some moldy and funky flavours, but overall a very sugary nose with subtle citrus and green apples. Taste is very sweet and sugary. Minimal funk, light barnyardy nose, sweet green apples and grapefruit. The sweetness is really overpowering. I’ll never really enjoy faro that much.
