Faro purchased at Olive Tree Market in OB. Last one. Sweet aroma and taste. Not very sour which was only what I expected. Haven’t had many in this style. Still it was good and I enjoyed it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found this at GE Market District-certainly the easiest to find brew of the style and my first.
A- Body is a completely transparent slightly dark caramel hue. Pours with <1/2 finger foamy white head that eventually fades to a thin collar with no lacing left behind in the glass.
S- Nose is of moderate strength and offers a good bit of funk-cheesecloth, a hint of vinegar, and a sugary sweetness-that seems to be more of regular sweetness than belgian candi sugar
T-Taste is much stronger than the smell. The initial flavor of of juicy white grapes, a very mild accent of vinegar, and a hint of cheese. The finish adds a lot of sweetness-almost cloyingly so- to the flavors already described. What lingers is a mild combination of everything described.
M- medium to high clarbonation and a medium weight quite juicy body initially with a slightly dry finish.
D- This is an interesting brew overall. My first of the style-and I dont really depend on Lindemans to demonstrate the best example-but I have a good idea of what its about. The flavor profile is slightly gueze-like but has a much lighter character and is much sweeter.
Serving type: bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: this beer pours with a medium beige head, the beer is a very nice ruby color, seems clear but kind of dark to tell
Aroma: cherry, sweet, grain, creamy, a bit faint but seems complex
Taste: cherry, a strong sweetness throughout, some tart, tangy,
Palate: has a thick mouthfeel, leaves mouth wet, minimal aftertaste,
Overall: kind of reminds me of a very sweet red wine, it’s a good beer but not something I would go for very often

nice beverage-- it shows how extensive the beer family can be, this scarcely seems like a beer at all-- there are few of the usual signposts indicating much in the way of malt or hops. one would guess this one is a relative only by marriage: brewing yeasts and some vague malt foundation wedded to dark fruits in sweet noble rot. it's a soft orange pour-- between tiger fur and apricot pastel yellow. there's a nice decoration of ice-white lace like sinuous veins in marble. rich aroma of cherrys, cedar, noga-hide upholstery, and some perfumes common to ladies bath soaps. i searched hard for the "barnyard" aromas, but found only the dried-flower smell of hay-- no horses or goats. extremely sippable, the 25cl bottle is an adequate serving size. is it sweet? duh, yeah, does michael jackson own a bottle opener? yeah, it's way sweet. cherries and apples with a very tart cranberry finish. lightly sour, acidic as a car battery, very soft creamy palette. the finish is all cranberry-lemon, which may accord with breakfast fare: pastries and waffles. contains no buzz that i could desern: this is suitable for children, pooh bears and sweat bees-- and perhaps the serious beer hunter searching for the outer boundaries of what we call beer.
