Served from a 355 mL bottle from OTM. The appearance is a crystal clear deep apple juice hue with a small white head. The aromas are apple cider light yeast. The flavors have a nice sweetness, apple, apple cider, malty, cinnamon sugar. A certain deeper sourness comes through on some sips. The mouth is medium to fuller bodied with a low carbonation. An interesting style. Seems like a cider with a touch of vinegar. I’m glad I got to try the style.

Bottle at Brewforia. Deep amber with a thin light tan head. Aromas of rasins and dark pitted fruit flavors of cider and oak and vinnegar. Sweetened a bit much. Tasty though.

Bottle. Poured a darker amber color with a small head that went quick. Aroma was fruits, acidic, and vinegar. Flavor was very sweet, apples, sugar, candies, and acid. Tart, metallic aftertaste. Not my favorite out there, but drinkable

Bottle/12oz - This is the last of the "styles" of beer on my list... I have now had *every* style of beer that exists!!!! - Pours a clear dark amber in color with a small, almost non-existent head and very little carbonation. Aroma is fruity... apples cherries, pears... barnyard funk with citrus and vinegar sourness... with plenty of the candy sugar to fill in the gaps. Finish is surprisingly sweet, given the sour style, and lingering. This might not be the "best" faro out there, but I like it!!

Pours a moslty translucent orange copper with little to no head. Aroma of fresh red apples, sweet and lightly tart. Flavor was kind of sweet and cereal like, red apples and a light tartness.
