Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Etwas süßer Antrunk, der Unterton ist minimal sauer. Der Geuze-Grundton ist anfänglich noch vorhanden, verschwimmt aber nach und nach. Im Mittelteil ist die Süße nun deutlich führend, dadurch wird das Faro etwas künstlicher. Dieser Eindruck verstärkt sich im Abgang deutlich, hier wird das Bier süßer, künstlicher und muffig. Test vom 8.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,8,10,9,10,9 - 9,05

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Warm amber with a red hue and a creamy, but moderate head. The aroma is slightly sour with notes of candy sugar, caramel and a hint of nuts. The flavour is nicely balanced between acidity and a sweet/sour finish, and the candy sugar never becomes cloying or pushy. It’s a really nice faro.

brokensail (9959) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2010
A: The pour is a clear amber color with an intense levely of carbonation but surprisingly little in terms of head. S: The nose is very musty with some odd notes of cork and bread. There is quite a bit of sugary sweetness as well, but I expected that. T: Wow, I was really surprised by the flavor of this. The intense sweetness was the first thing I noticed as this beer is very sugary. There’s also a hint of fruit and for some reason, a bile note on the back end. M: The body was medium with a very high level of carbonation and despite being sweetened, still has a certain level of dryness. D: This beer is really all over the place. I was not at all surprised by the intense sugary character, but the vomit flavor really seemed out of place.
