COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s 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 at home. Dark amber with a white head. Aroma moderate malty, notes of fruits. Moderate sweet and sour, and when you get used to it, smooth and round. Light body, normal carbonated.

SHIG (3537) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Bottle: Poured a reddish brown amber with a white head. Aroma seemed to have that sour berry fruit smell with a hint of sugar. Nice sweet berry and malt flavor. Kinda diffrent than what I expected from all the ingredients I read.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Bottle from the Oxford CAMRA festival. Dark caramel pour, layer of tan head that settles fairly quickly. Oxidized barleywine sort of smell--dark pit fruit, brown sugar, sherry. Flavor is...really weird. Sort of a lemonade kind of thing--a heavy dose of sweetness, mixed clumsily with a big dose of dark sweetness. So sweet. Gives me the shudders. A bit metallic in the finish. Grows on me a little as the glass progresses--the harshness of the sweetness wears off a little--but it still just feels like an unusually awkward beer.

[From my Christmas Speech at Ørbæk rådhus] Wow! Wonderful sweet aperitif Faro. Cannot find any better in this special style!

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Courtesy of Papsoe. <P> Acidic, sweet, lightly funky, unripe green apple aroma. <P> Pours a ruddy brown with a quickly diminishing bubbly white head. <P> Sweet, funky and lightly tart in the fore. Very sugary through the middle and finish, but with that faint barnyard funk beneath. Has a sort of apple cider flavor to it...very appley in fact. Hmmm. It’s kind of still and lifeless with just a hint of carbonation as you swallow.

ogivlado (5539) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2006
Bottled(250ml). –Amber coloured, small white head, wine acidic nose. Acidic aroma with notes of fruits and yeast. Also light apple and a way too strong sugary taste. Moderate sweet and acidic finish. There are better Lindemans.

toccata (70) - grembergen, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2006
Slight fizzy beer with a deep yellow to light amber color. The foam disappears quick. The aroma is very nice and apple like. Fruity sourish in the nose with a fine counterbalance of honeyed accents. The beer has a perfect balans between sweet and sour. Very nice to drink lots of it on a warm summer day.

Shared by Sliffy at the last Columbus tasting. Golden brown pour with a light fruity aroma. The palate was medium. Taste was earty, sweet fruit, and a funky aftertaste. Glad I got to try this style.

Shared by sliffy at CTV3, thanks! Poured orange with an off white head. The aroma held some vinegar like qualities but nothing too over bearing...coupled with some fruitiness. The flavor was ciderish with some sour behind it. Pretty sweet and fruity with a dry finish.
