375cl bottle at home. Lindemans generally make sweetened lambics so I thought that their Faro would be worth a try. The aroma is very nice with quite a decent amount of horse blanket, which came as a pleasant bonus. The taste is very sweet but their is a decent amount of sourness hidden in there. Very nice caramel taste though I could not drink too much of this. Overall though, quite pleasant

Bottle pours golden amber with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and sour with fruity notes. Flavor is sweet, cherry, apple, with a very light tartness.

Clear reddish-brass colored body and clean white dissipating head. Some light visible viscosity. Waxy lactic aroma with buttery, nutty notes. Flavor is like oversweetened tea with some caramel and honey. Mild tartness fails to provide sufficient balance. Syrupy palate like a very sweet soda. This is pure candy beer. Based on this one limited example, this style serves no useful purpose for me.

375 ml bottle- Pours clear red to brown with a thin white head (I went against what the website said and used my Chimay trappist glass,whether that had any effect on the head retention, not sure), lacework is sticky. Aroma is tart, like the taste of an under ripe fruit, some kind of a wild berry. The flavor is cherries and raspberries and fruit juice with no sugar added, tart. The palate has no off notes, full body, somewhat syrupy, I could chug this stuff. My personal preference for belgian brews are not lambics, I tend to prefer dubbels and tripels, but there is no denying this is an exceptional beer.

Got this in a trade, and popped it at Sourfest. Clear, iced tea looking with no head. Nose is light spiciness and sweet. Taste is spicy, and flat, almost like iced tea. Too sweet finish.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2010
Poured amber with a tan head that disappeared. Typical lambic aroma, but not surprisingly this beer is sweet. Caramel, some apple, white grape make it slightly fruity. Medium dense, low carbonation, somewhat oily top. Sweet aftertaste. Its fairly well balanced. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had a sweet tooth.

Bottle. Pours murky amber with a small off-white head. Sweet aroma of toffee and almonds. Taste is very sweet, rasperry and cherries, candy sugar and sweet fruit syrup. Turns sour towards the end, nice and even kind of balanced.

Took a chance. Its not every day the HyVee will stock something like this and I knew it by reputation, not taste. 375 ml. Super sweet. Candi sugar dominates whatever lambic is there. Id want this without the sweetness.
