ALIBALI (1551) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2016
Ich denke so sollte ein Faro schmecken. Se und Sure umtnzeln einander, bis sie zu einer Einheit werden. Ein dezenter Schuss ledriger Funkyness gibt noch obendrauf. Tap. 0,1/1 Jetson beim ZYTHOS BEER FESTIVAL 2016 in Leuven.

Palme (4484) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2016
From hand pump @ Borefts 2014. This is a cloudy kinda copper colored one, only a translucent bubbly sidesticking thing on the top. Mild aroma - at least at first. It has tones of dry wood, mild gueuze and something almost fruity. Not any indication that this will be yet one of those over sweet and faros. Its not! At all! Oh, this is the first drinkable faro Ive had! Cask-flat on in the mouth, as dead as they come really, but it has a nice gliding mouthfeel. Hard to describe what this tastes like. Definitely fruity. Sweetbreads apples in season with traces of both pear, a fair amount of wood and a little bit of sugar syrup. Yeah, this i could drink again and again. 26.09.2014

Deep copper color with no head. Aroma is woody funk, slight candied sugar. Taste is funky, candied sugar, nice complexity, easy drinkability. Flat. A good Faro.
