(375ml bottle) pours opaque amber with light tan bubbles on top. Nose of apples, tartness, and sugar. Taste of light tart fruits, apples, sugar, sweet pears, and lightly funky. Finish is nice and carbonated and fruity sweet.

A reddish color beer with a nice head. The aroma was sweet & candy like. The taste was very sweet, fruity, tomtatoes, with a slight carbonated mouthfeel. Too sweet for my liking.

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.

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. cuerpo medio. 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.
