Crystal clear golden color with a tight ivory head. There's a very solid cascade of bubbles working up the side of the glass. There is a huge staying power on the head due to the carbonation. Looks good. The aroma is a dichotomy between barnyard and sour fruityness. There is an upfront mustyness that plays with an underlying sour apple fruityness. The aroma is actually a bit subtle. The flavor brings a mild tartness as I take the first sip. Following this comes a tart cherry mixed with grape skin and black currant. There is a lot of fruit in there. The aftertaste brings some mustyness and a slight raw wheat flavor as well. This one is very light on the tongue, with a lively carbonation. Not having any other experiences with a faro, I really don't have a point of comparison, but knowing a bit about the style, I think this falls with a standard deviation of what I would have expected before opening it. I like it. Overall, this is a good beer. I think it would fit the bill when I wanted something sour-ish but not puckering.

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.
