From the bottle marked L-H10JFA. Sampled on November 28, 2013.

The pour is amber brown with a moderate head that fades back. Very good clarity.

The aroma is more on the fruity side and by fruit I would say more specifically cherry. There is a mild roasted malt character and some sweetness but the fruitiness is what I'm getting the most.

The body is light to medium and fairly smooth.

The taste is also quite fruity almost like fruit juice character with a sour, tart bite at the end. I could take this in small quantities but it is not something I would go to regularly.

Nice sweet champagne like beer. I've tried the peach version and did not like it but this version is really good. Nice and sweet with a sweet smoky and slightly barnyard aroma. Goes down great and tastes fresh. Slightly tart. Definitely not as sour as the peach version. I really like this one and would recommend highly.

This is one weird beer.
It has a slightly hazy red color and a semi-large but quickly disappearing head. There is also high carbonation present. The aroma is sweet and citrusy with some hops noticeable. Nothing bad yet. So, now the taste. I didn't know whether it's a cider, freshly made wine, or a homemade bear gone bad. It's sweet and really sour at the same time, plus there is too much carbonation here. Not the best combo really.

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.
