Summat deeply weird’s going on here, but my friends and I were more than keen on trying a beer that sounds a bit like "Halifax" and was for sale in Berlin for under the minimum unit price in the UK in ridiculous litre cans at 10%. Imagine blending any old lager in with a bag of pick’n’mix, possibly including the pick’n’mix wrappers, and you have Faxe. Don’t expect to be able to open your eyes properly after having it. Drunk from the can as it slowly went to room temperature, at which point it tasted like summat you’d find under the settee. Don’t know whether I’m rating it cruelly or kindly.

FTA: During one of the sampling sessions in Tartu. We purchased everything that we could from the beers in high ABV. This was extra full with ethanol and not malty/fizzy enough to cover this stuff up. Is it still available?

ruigo (1482) - PORTUGAL - APR 3, 2015
1l can. Clear golden colour with a thin white head with good retention. Floral, light alcohol and odd fruity aroma. Average carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is moderate sweet, quite boring after a few sips. I got some problems to finish this large can even sharing it. Overall, a boring and high alcoholic sweet beer.

I prefer this especially when I wanna get stoned at home. Can’t try it while clubbing. Don’t try it either. But it’s great when you wanna save some coins....hahaha!

Gadzooks!! This is horrible! A cross between bug spry and gasoline. If you are looking to join the local homeless community and live in a box under the overpass this is the ticket. I could only stomach a small glass and the remainder went down the drain to unclog the pipes. Steer clear of this unholy swill!!

UXO (757) - CANADA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours clear straw with one finger of rocky white head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is rotten apples, faint floral, solvent-like alcohol. (2/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (2/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, lingering (not in a good way) finish. (3/5) Really quite amazingly vile. But it’s 10% ABV vile, and I’ve just done a 15 hour day on the job, so there’s that… And it really seriously is a very good-looking beer. That tastes like liquid hate. And fermented sweat socks. (3/20)

Emeister84 (1534) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Very fruity aromas, white grapes, stonefruit, red berries, strawberry preserves, floral, somewhat boozy. Slightly hazy orange-gold, mostly fading white head. Dry, strong, tannic like unripened plum, sharply acidic. Medium-full bodied.

Есть во вкусе и горечь и спирт. Ради прикола взять можно, но цена кусучая.

Awful brew with an aggressive solvant nose and sweaty sweetness. The taste comes out just as strong and beats your palate cold. Try at your own risk.

Excelente cerveja Lager, ótima aparência, pouco olfato mas de muito bom paladar. Vale muito o custo benefício.
