Scopey (5528) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle at Delirium Brussels. It pours clear golden with a medium white head. The nose is sweet, tangy, apple, pear, ice tea and a touch of barnyard. The taste is tangy apple, pear, light acidic quality, barnyard, citrus peel and dried fruits (raisin etc) with a dry, tangy finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. As faros go this ain’t too bad. As well as the sweet apple notes there is also light tartness and acidity. OK.

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2014
37,5cl corked bottle, BB 02/05/14. Bought at the Tourist-Info in Brussels in November 2012

Fruity and tart in the nose, colour is reddish brown. The beer starts quite sweet. Tartness and horse blanket in the background. Highly drinkable. The mainpart is mild, smooth. Fruity woody hints together with a nice tart sourness and some horse blanket. Hints of sour apple juice. The aftertaste is long, woody, tart, sweet-sour, apples.
Nice Faro, but for me the 10% of apples in this beer is too dominant in taste. --> 9/12/8/9
