3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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. Iím glad I got to try the style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!!
