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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lindemans Faro is the most candy-like of all the Lambics Iíve tried. Aroma is pretty straightforward - fruity and yeasty. Carbonation is lively and the head is fizzy. Taste was somewhat tart and very fruity (as youíd 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, itís a surprisingly approachable beer.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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

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

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
