Light amber pour with light beige head. Aromas of musty wood, apple, grape, berry and pear. Flavors are in line with the aroma with a sweetness that lingers on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle Pour. Dark amber color with a very fizzy pour. Light tan head. The aroma is very sour, and sweet. The taste is fizzy on the tongue with a very sour finish. Overall a very sweet sour, not one of my favorites, but a good pick.

Presentation: It was poured from a green capped and corked 355ml bottle into a Lindemans fluted glass. The label has a description of the beer but there is no freshness date or abv%.
Appearance: Itís dark in the glass with a bronzy amber colored body held up to light. It has good clarity and some visible carbonation. A good two finger head caps of the beer. Itís off white in color and tightly packed. On the glass it leaves some spotty lace.
Smell: There are notes of white bread, raw grain and wheat malt with a hint of sweetened whiskey or sweet brandy.
Taste/Palate: It is candy sweet up front with notes of white bread, sweet caramel, and nougat. Some tangy wheat and yeast tartness just tries to sneak in as some fruit notes like sweet apple peach and pear lead into a stick sweet finish. The palate is medium bodied, smooth and slick. On the lips it feels sticky.
Notes: Iím not quite sure what to think of this beer. My palate is confused, is it a tart beer trying to be sweet or a sweet beer trying to be tart/sour. It is interesting if nothing else.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Just my second Faro beer. Not very familiar with the genre, but out of the two, this wasnít the best one ;) Itís too sweet to enjoy for me. Has a fruity base of pear, apple and something funky like marzipan combined with soap or something. The the sourness kicks in, which is the special part of this beer, balancing the sweetness out somewhat, resulting in kind of a overload flavor sensation. Thatís the part i like, but the flavor base is not my thing and itís just too sweet without much depth.
