3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared by a generous RB at tpd975’s throwdown in December, 2009. Pours a yellow to golden color with thin head. Aroma is sweet and fragrant with notes of tart over-ripe fruit, light vinegar, honey, floral esters. Flavor is about the same. Light to medium body with a light syrupy mouthfeel and floral finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a mixture of citrus, lemons, tart fruit and some sugar. The flavor is mainly lemony tartness with some sugar and light funk. This tastes about like liquid sweet tarts. Low carbonation and thin mouthfeel.
Only the second faro I have had and this is better than the Chapeau, but still not anything too memorable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the free table at Woodshop 5.0. Pours light amber with a small white head. Aroma is candied fruits and rock candy. Tastes like candi sugar, pretty much. Lesser notes of lemons and tropical fruits, maybe some sauvignon blanc sweet grapey notes. Finish is gently tart and drying with a minor acidity. Too sweet for me but better than the abomination that is Chapeau Faro. A little syrupy in body as well.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle thanks to Mar. Pours and orangey golden color with no head. Smells exactly like movie theatre vomit. That is buttered popcorn, vomit, and maybe some old rotting fruit. Taste is bad fruit soda. Mouthfeel is somewhat lively. Trainwreck.

Big thanks to mar for finishing off my last style! Clear copper color. Smell has light tart notes with some bits of fruit. Sweet fruit is easy and smooth. Some funky notes on the flavor but remains all around fruity. Not bad.
