These comments may show me to not have a beerophiles insight into the finer qualities of beer. Oh well. I like this Faro version of Lindemanís Lambics much better than the Geuze, even the Rene. This poured with a nice off white fine foamy head and a little lace. Color is a hazy medium to dark amber. Aroma is yeasty, tart, caramel, toffee, wine. Flavorís very similar. Nice sweet/tart interplay. Great body and carbonation. Finish is like flavor. I really like this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber red with small off-white head. Smells citrus lemons/limes, yeast - typical gueuze aromas . Taste is a nice balance of candy sugar and tart citrus flavors. Nicely balanced sweeter lambic.

Bottle into Lindemans flute. Pours a ruddy amber with a small, bubbly white head that disappears within a minute. The aroma is sweet with sugar, grapes, and pear. The taste is more sweet than tart with similar flavors as the aroma. Not much of a presence on the palate; itís light and short-lived. Not bad, but lacks any truly discernible merits.

botella comprada en sapin.
aromas buenos, tipicos de lambic, mas especias, notas torrefactas, caramelo, y especias.
color naranja oscuro, notas marrones, brillante y clara.
poca carbonatacion, retencion media.
dulzor medio y un poquito de amargor, probablemente alguna nota torrefacta da mas este aspecto, que de lupulo.
sabor herbaceo pronunciado amargante, un poco de clavo y alguna especie mas.
buena en general, rara, i bastante que pensar para el estilo..
buena con queso fresco y algo de pescado.

25cl bottle courtesy of Secret Santa. Red, amber pour with almost zero head. Small ring of off white foam. Aroma was sour cherries and candied sugar. Palate was medium bodied with almost zero carbonation. Not heavy on the alcohol, but you want to sip it. Sweet, fruity flavor, almost like wine. Quite different than anything Iíve had before.

Had this from a bottle at the Lindemans Brewery, sweet aroma with the nose of a traditional gueuze, appearance is as expected, taste is remarkable, unforgettable and very easy to drink on the palate.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden yellow colo with very small head that disappears quickly; no lacing to speak of.
Aroma of apples, grapes and candy.
Flavor is dominated by the cloying sweetness that never lets up - nothing to balance it.
This one is too sweet, lacks the lambic characteristic sourness to balance it.

Very bizarre style. Bottle was capped AND corked and required a corkscrew to open. Unlike any beer Iíve ever come across as this was almost like a soda pop. Orange, lemon, fruity sweetness of apple juice all apparent. Not very carbonated, not much head. 375ml bottle.
