The beer was offered clear amber with an off-white and lasting head which coated the cup.
The aroma as tart with a strongly acidic character and a strong fruity presence that had some cherry similarities.
The flavor was very fruity and far too sweet. A lightly husky flavor was notable.
The finish was dry with a lasting bit of tartness and a bit of astringency. The body was medium light with a moderate carbonation. If it were not so sickly sweet it could be a thirst quenching beer, but the sweetness was cloying.
Draft served in a plastic cup from the "Order of the Faro" booth setup in Grand Place in Brussels on 9/16/06.
Note: I brought home a bottle so maybe it will have some different characteristics from draft for a future review.
Serving type: on-tap

4.41/5 rDev +21.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Appearance: Amber to light brown in color with an off white to tan well carbonated head. The beer itself is very clear when held to the light. There are some large yeast flakes inside the bottle. Average retention. Decent cling.
Aroma: Sweet in aroma with a syrupy cherry smell. Candied sugars. No hop presence.
Taste: Again the flavors are very sweet from the candied sugars. More fruits announce themselves in the flavor like plums, grapes and a very light cherry. There might be the slightest hint of hop bitterness in the back but it's hardly noticeable. The cherries linger in the end.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel shines. It's a very luscious syrupy flavor that coats the tongue and cheek. Medium body and medium to medium high carbonation hits my throat and tongue.
Notes: Capped and Corked.
Serving type: bottle
