Awesome lambic. Smells straight up of cherries, tart and delicious. Tastes are more of the same. Sweet, tart and fruity. Everything I expect from this style and it does not disappoint. Medium bodied with a lingering tartness.

Lindemans Faro is the most candy-like of all the Lambics Ive tried. Aroma is pretty straightforward - fruity and yeasty. Carbonation is lively and the head is fizzy. Taste was somewhat tart and very fruity (as youd expect). A combination of white wine and apple juice is the best way I can describe the flavor. Despite the low ABV, Lindemans Faro has a dryness and consistency which remind me of champagne. Overall, this is a great introduction to the Faro style. Not to funky and not too sour, its a surprisingly approachable beer.

HuskerTan (572) - Holdrege, Nebraska, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. A- White wine, grapes, subtle funk, sour, musty. A- Amber color, clear liquid, off white head. T- White wine, grapes, green apple, subtle funk, slightly sour, sweet, tart. P- Medium body, average texture, high carbonation, dry fruity finish. O- A good intro into beer for wine lovers. Tasted like a white wine with a nice crisp and dry finish. Not overly sour or sweet and just the right amount of fruitiness.

GuideDogSaint (483) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 17, 2014
25cl bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours orange brown with a minimal head which soon disappears. Can get the typical lambic aroma but a lot sweeter to taste. Not overpoweringly sweet though. Maybe good as an introduction to gueuze.

ogniskowicz (182) - POLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Barwa ciemnego, zmętnionego bursztynu, piana niewysoka, ale ładnie zdobiąca szkło. Aromat kwaśnych jabłek, brzoskwiń, szampana, w tle odrobina dzikich drożdży. W smaku owocowa kwaśność, sporo nut jabłkowych, przełamana karmelem (może nawet zbyt zaznaczonym), na końcu minimalna, ale bardzo przyjemna goryczka. Wysycenie powyżej przeciętnego. Świetny trunek, lekki, orzeźwiający.

eduardovl (966) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
750ml corked bottle served in a Lambic flute glass. A: Pours a clear dark orange color forming a huge, fizzy and soapy white to yellow head. Great retention and lots of lingering and soapy lacings left in the glass S: Classic Lambic: Very fruity with strong notes of Lambic yeasts. Strong notes of Apple juice. Mild Citric and vinegar in the nose T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of fruits, mainly apples, tastes a bit like a cider. Some caramel malts. In overall, a sweet taste. Mild sourness M: Very light body and strong carbonation. Sweet fruity aftertaste O: Good drinkability. Refreshing beer. A little bit too sweet [ BA Review @ 6/28/2010 ]

A nice mix of sweet and sour. The aroma is that of a lambic but the taste is a nice blend of sourness and sweetness. Not something I could drink all night but a nice change.
