3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml corked bottle from Woodmans in Waukesha. Amber garnet pour with a white head leaving spotty lace. Aroma has tangy spices, pears, other fruits, some leather. Interesting. Funky. Taste is of simple syrup, apples, pears, some berries and grainy wheat on a solid sweet malt bill. Light to medium bodied with little alcohol presence. Finishes sweet tangy and quite dry. Interesting. Looking for a tick, yet it was enjoyable enough too. 12.8

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at HopCat. The pour is a brown-ish amber color with no head and no lace as the glass empties. The aroma is surprisingly good. It's like a cherry apple juice. There isn't any tart skin, just a juice blend. The flavor is very similar, until the finish. Then it goes to a moldy funk that it doesn't really recover from. The mouth feel is non-carbonated and syrupy. There is a lingeringly medicinal apple finish and it's just not that great. I'm hoping other Faros are much better

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is berry musty woody. Appearance is brownish dark orange red with medium small fizzy off white head. Taste is berry forward and tart quickly followed by sugary sweetness. Some woodsy mustiness lingers. Vinegar lingers. Palate is crisp but sweet. Tartness lingers with a bit of sugar. Overall an interesting beer. Beer is nice and has a real depth that is interesting. Alot of backsweetening though which isnt bad... but covers some of the flavors up.
