Served in New Belgium globe glass.
A: Pours sunset orange with a minimal head that shows little retention. Medium effervescence.
S: Light sour and musty notes. Actually, the mustiness was pungent at first, but that softens as the beer opens up. Some fruitiness, which ranges from artificial to natural. Subtle wood.
T: Yes, there is the sweetness, which is sugary like a pop. Then comes a mild sourness, along with some intense, concentrated fruit notes of apple, berry and grape. The flavor fades away. Residual fruit and sweetness comprise finish.
M: Light but syrupy body and medium carbonation, which effectively lifts the body. Reminds me of a sparkling grape juice.
O: I'm reasonably sure this is not a particularly faithful representation of a Faro. I would liken Lindeman's Faro to the fruit ales in New Glarus' portfolio, a comparison that works in its favor. If it were more available and a bit cheaper, this beer could become a guilty pleasure. Plus, the wife loves it.

4.41/5 rDev +21.5%

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.
