3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[10/9/13] Bottle on a bench outside the Royal Museum for Cental Africa in Brussels. Bottled 1/09. Hazy deep orange with a big frothy off-white head and hypnotizing carbonation. Pleasant barnyard aroma with oak, fruits and some brown sugar. Sweetish flavor with brown sugar, fruits, funky sourness, barnyard and oak. Medium-bodied. A very good Faro.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.75l corked bottle shared with The Tasting Crew and actually courtesy of Etre. No pop in the cap, but it has a lovely big just off-white head on top of a cloudy peach orange body. Nice brett aroma with a lemon tartness, grapefruit, rice vinegar and some light candied sugar. Smells really nice this! It’s definitely on the sweet faro path this one. Just about average on the carbonation with a filling mouthfeel. Lots of candied sugar here, sweet plums, something berry fruity and watery sugar syrup. The smell is super confusing compared with the taste. Smells lovely sour, tastes sugary sweet! Fruktsaft with oranges and mango in the finish. A full bottle would definitely not have been finished by me alone. 20.03.2013

Bottle shared with Simonsen, edvard & daje
Orange hazy, almost no head. Smells of the norwegian word "Gymbag", funk, smelly socks. Medium to heavy sweet, sugar syrup and candis sugar. What an extreme differense between flavor and expectations after just smelling this. Wow. Awsome aroma, not as awsome when tasted

750 ml bottle at home (taken from notes) - pours clear medium dark amber with ni head. Aroma of nuts and candi sugar, red grapes, some citrus. Medium body with still a good amount of subtle carbonation. Sweet palate and subtle sourness. Not his best beer imo but nice and easily drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle with friends courtesy of Aaron. Thanks man!! Pour is clear amber with a frothy cream head that quickly dissipated. Funky, green apples, pears, somewhat caramelly, bready, lemon peel aroma. Taste is is super sweet - cloyingly sweet - a touch of acid, somewhat funky, and lemon peels with a lightly tart finish. Light body with high carbonation. A complete sugar bomb and I enjoyed Girardin’s much more.
