Pours a nice golden amber color. The palate and drinkability is very good. The finish is a little sharp and only a small amount of dryness. The texture is caramel; tarts, toffee and some fruits. I am enjoying this. A good beer for a night cap.

Poured from the bottle into a Duvel tulip. Clear amber-brown with a large fizzy white head. The head resembles that of soda - fast audible bubbles that quickly recedes to nothingness. Smells lightly of traditional lambic barnyard with some vinegar and sweetness. The flavor is mildly sour masked by sweetness with a fruitiness, slightly earthy/funky , some wheat, and a touch of vinegar as well. Medium-low carbonation cleanses the sweetness from the palate. Even though I would call the body medium it is much fuller than every other lambic I have had. I was fully prepared to hate this just because it was from Lindemans but I was pleasantly surprised. Would make a nice starter sour as well.

355ml Bottle: Sweet aroma of malt, candi sugar, honey, light barnyard, light funk, and lambic. Poured amber in color with a small, fizzy, off-white head that disappeared immediately. Clear. Sparkling. A few small and medium-sized particles throughout. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of malt, candi sugar, slight banana, slight bile, honey, and light funk. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Heavily sweet, malt, candi sugar, light funk, and slight bile/vomit finish. Way too sweet. Where does that bile/vomit flavor come from?

Bottle. Amber pour with thick off- white head. A nose of candy, fruit, and syrup. A sour taste with a tart / tin finish. I don’t like lambics , but this is ok.

Pours a light brown (WTF?). The aroma is sickeningly sweet and fruity. The flavor is super sweet and extremely off-putting. Luckily we split this 5 ways. Nasty.

PorterPounder (6215) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverages, 12 oz corked bottle.Copper colored pour, not much of a head. Earthy aroma, some sourness to it with a hint of vinegar. Solid sour flavor with out any fruitiness - nice and basic. Earthy and basic. Solidly thick mouthfeel - hint of spritziness. Woo-hoo - finally rated a Lambic-Faro!

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 5, 2010
Pours deep amber/copper with an off-white head. The aroma has lots of sugary sweetness, some underlying lambic sourness, light caramel and light brown sugar. Medium slick sticky body with lots of flowing sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with almost a toastiness to the malt, good amount of sugary syrup, some spice and a hint of sharp lambic hiding below. The finish gets a bit on the medicinal side. Okay beer.
