Itís made from malt, wheat, hops, water, yeast. Candy sugar is added before the bottling takes place. It is a clear, light red colored faro lambic with a small, creamy head.

Bottle... Poured dark amber with a fizzy, white head that lasted. Musky, funky aroma with a hint of sulfur and candied sweetness. Tasted malty with a sweetness up front. Acidic and tart in the finish.

Clear reddish amber pour, small quickly fading head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma: Somewhat light. Sour apples, yeast. Medium body. Some sour apple notes again, a light tartness. Finish is the same, apple sweetness/tartness. Not bad, but a little sweet for me.

Aroma is sour, funky, sweet apples, horse, and wheat. Pour is a faint copper color. Taste is sweet like nutrasweet, very lactic vinegar like Dutchess, oak, apples, and a sour twinge. Finish is sweet, but a bit dry from the sourness and carbonation. Decent, but faro is not my favorite style.

Bottle. Light copper, filtered, fading head. Nose is a bit sour. Taste comes off very sweet, tangy, syrupy, with a bit of tanginess. Too sweet and sugary for me. Iíve had other better faros.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 The sweetness of the added sugar tempers the tartness but not to the point of cloying. Dried fruit (raisin?) flavors. Somewhat refreshing too. Serving: Bottle

I am rating #420 for this beer. Woohooo!!!! Pours translucent dark brown ruby with a small foamy beige head. Aroma of sugar, berry, caramel, slightly tart. Taste is nice with lots of sugar again and fruit. Finish is dry and has some tart grape notes. Medium body, rich smooth carbonation. Glad to finally try a Faro.

Peachy aroma that has the slight grape skin twinge of a blush wine. Taste is sweet peaches, slight bitterness mid-palate, light tart finish that lingers in the throat. Very much like a sweet dessert wine, better than I had hoped. Would drink again, at 6 dollars for a small bottle itís not even particularly pricey.

degbert (1486) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Poured from bottle. The nose is almost bourbon-like, with vanilla, brown sugar, very faint orange, and alcohol notes. Pours a rich, hazy golden-brown with a smooth, persistent head. The taste is very sweet, but with enough acid to balance the sweetness; there is a faint roasty bitterness on the close and a touch of green apple. Not something I would drink every day, but very enjoyable.

Was quite excited to try another product from the Lindemans line! Now I want to try another Faro style. This gave a keen perception into the Lindemans line in general, as this truly seems to be the base for their other, now hugely popular fruited lambics, knowing that those beers are definitely sugared up as opposed to other truer style lambics. That being said - I really enjoyed this! Heavy in the sweet department, with touches of peaches and apples, a slight spice profile in the back end, and an ever so gentle sweep of sour throughout the body and lingering palate, this was definitely a pleasurable experience. Possibly my new fav from the Lindemans line!!
