4.48/5  rDev +23.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Tasted On: 10-27-2012
Freshness: Not indicated
Packaging: 12 oz. green bottle, corked with pry-cap covered in foil
Glassware: Chalice
Purchased: Single from Argonaut Liquors, Denver

Pours a clear, dark amber color initially, with the second pour yielding some sediment and cloudiness. The modest white head has low retention but leaves a nice amount of lacing.

Aromas are very curious, funky and different. Smells of wine and grapes, which gives it a dry aroma, but also has a sweetness as of candied fruits. Also has the aroma of a beer aged on wood.

The taste is equally complex and is both sweet and sour. Flavors are rich, with a tart, citrus character as well as a hefty level of sweetness and a woody/oak component. Carbonation is high on this full-bodied beer. The finish is again sweet and sour, like in sour candies.

I can't say I've had anything quite like this Faro before. It's a highly enjoyable, curious mixture of smells and tastes. I really enjoyed it and would love to have more!

4.41/5  rDev +21.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Date:7/28/14
Location: Half Time Mamaroneck
Glassware: Tulip

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.
