PapaVillum (660) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2015
37,5 cl, flaske, 4,5 % ABV, BB: 02/02/17, købt i Casino i Nice i Sydfrankrig, 13. juli 2015. Let og knap så tydelig aroma af stikkelsbær og grapefrugt. Måske lidt kælder-aroma fra gærnuancerne og en umiskendelig lugt af noget gammelt og hengemt. Mørkerosa Lambic style: Faro med en minimum skumtop, som hurtigt svinder til kant og overflade. Første indtryk er en meget sød- og syrlig øl, men også med en vedhæftende bitterhed, der dog spiller en mindre rolle. Sødmen holder ved, omend det syrlige lægger spor på ens tænder. Smagsopsummering: Kraftig sødme, let syrlig og let bitter. Middel fyldig krop med en karbonering på et middel niveau. Klæbrig konsistens. Afslutningen er sødlig, let bitter, ganske kort og tør. Min - så vidt vides - første Faro, og tvivlen nager: skal det være så sødt? Umiddelbart ikke lige mon kop øl, men det åbner blot interessen for at prøve flere.

250 ml - the Beer Bistro (Toronto)
Pours an Amber/Ruby hue with a nice rim of champagne bubbles. From there, it is all sweet - the aroma, the flavor and the thick syrup finish. One to close the night, as the palate will be affected by this one all night. There is a nice carnelized (kinda lightly burned sugar) element that is nice to this.

DesertDevil (648) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft at The Flying Saucer in San Antonio. The aroma is incredibly sweet with a boatload of sugar, a touch of raspberry, heavy green apple, pungent alfalfa, and a bit of yeasty barnyard funk. Pours deep caramel with a thick and fizzy head. Not surprisingly, the taste is also quite sweet (but not cloying) with candi sugar, honey, a light cherry tone, some golden raisin, slight vinegar, and a minor grassy note at the finish. It reminds be vaguely of drinking some apple vinegar with a ton of sugar in it. Light and refreshing body with a minor puckering texture. From previous experience with Lindemans, I didnít expect much from this beer, but its drinkability was a nice surprise, though I find it too touch to enjoy on a regular basis.

Clear Copper pour, some citrus and apple aroma, not quite as sweet as I expected, very dry and crisp finish. Quite enjoyable, even if the style is nearly impossible to find.
