3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Girardin tasting @Stadin panimobaari.
Poured deep amber color with a thin white head.
Woody, sweet ripe fruits in aroma.
Some funky notes.
Flavor has sweetness, ripe fruits, more like marmalade, candy. Still no fan of faro. Drinkable yes, but nothing I will try again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to Ben!! Closing in on the 10 rates of all styles before the big 10K. Great progress this week. People need to send me Eisbocks and Krystalweiss though. Anyway, this particular sample is a mostly clear reddish hazel, large beige head, slow to dissipate and nice to lace. Aroma has that candi sugar thing going, along with dust, grain and grass. Flavor is mercifully lightly sweet, hints of tartness and funk, candi sugar, caramel, grass, dust. Medium body. This is really not a style I am digging, but damned if I am not going to get 10 rakes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A 375ml bottle with the numbers 2016 and 09 on different locations on the cork. Haven’t been able to find a consensus on what this means exactly. Poured into a Lindemans flute glass. It poured a clear copper brown colour with a thin tanned head that kind of sticks around and leaves some nice lacing. Had a hard time trying to describe the aroma, but I would say fruity plum, prunes and apple, light tartness, butterscotch and brown sugar. Tastes of candi sugar, plum and apples. Sweet and lightly tart. Light to medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall this was an ok Faro. I’m actually in two minds as to whether I really I enjoyed this though. After going through the whole bottle, I’m on the fence.
