No date found; recently purchased though.

A: Pours light red with some sediment. Interesting light pink head. Tall and dense at that. Head fades out slowly. Quite good retention.

S: Interesting aroma. Kinda smells like cherry jolly ranchers (do those even exist?). Lightly tart but clearly sugary at the same time.

T: Interesting. Sweet cherries with a very lightly tart component. Very sugary, almost overpowering any sort of sourness. Light wheaty base. Basically tastes like a cherry soda if I'm honest.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and simple.

O: Good dessert beer. Like a melted cherry candy basically. Pretty simple and straightforward.

My first Faro! Pours dark amber/copper with a nice white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is sour apple, vinegar, and definite mint presence. Flavor is a sweet and sour apple, vinegar, nice lingering green apple presence. This is really neat, and the minty smell is strange but somehow good. Easy drinking, lots of carbonation, and a slick mouthfeel. Good stuff.
