Pours with a short lived, white foam. The beer is a crystal clear brown and quite effervescent. Nose is mouthwateringly tart with sour apples and toffees. The flavor is a mixture of sugary, sweet tea-like notes with a metallic twang in the finish.

Keg@six degrees north
pale amber brown, fluffy cream head. Sweet sour apple nose. Full bodied barnyard rotting hay juxtaposition against sweet Citric tartness. A small quantity more than sufficient.

From corked bottle. Light clear dark reddish color. Aroma is lollipop, sweet funk, and orange gummi candies. Taste is dank tart sourness, sweet candi sugar, prune, toffee, and a hint of bitterness. Quite sweet, but the dank funky tart character pairs well with that. My first beer of this style, and I really enjoy it.

Clean amber color, small beige head. Aroma of sour fruits, oak, malt, sugar and grass. Sour sweet taste. Thin body and lively carbonation.

(Flasche) Es hat eine bronzene Farbe, ist klar filtriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sauer, etwas moosig, harzig und spritzig. Der Geschmack ist anfangs süß, medium sauer, sonst wie das Aroma. Bittere gibt es keine. Das Mundgefühl ist spritzig und angenehm.

Bottle. Clear copper with a frothy white head that quickly disappears. Complex aromas of oak barrel apple cider, vinegar, a touch of barnyard and not a hint of the sweetness to come. Immediate citrus tartness, oak influences, grapes and apple juice sweetness which envelopes the beer. Nice carbonation with quite a thick mouthfeel, although it doesn't linger with sweetness, instead finishing reasonably dry. Faro is a bit sweet for me, but an enjoyable and thought provoking beer nonetheless.
