The_Osprey (7571) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
March 2017 - Keg at Le Trappiste, Bruges as Timmermans Faro, 4%. Amber orange, translucent, still, foamy off-white head leaves dotted lacing. Aroma is sugar syrup, pineapple chunks in syrup, slightly metallic. Body is smooth with tingly carbonation. Taste is again syrupy, thin apple liqueur, short finish. A very simple, sugary beer but one that didnt jar too much. Maybe one of the rare examples of keg cold-fizz helping a beer. Wouldnt approach a bottle of this one for that reason. (3.2)
