4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Cheeky Monk in Denver on 7/30/11. Copper hued, with slight haze and a small creamy head. Smells like oak and light lemon citrus. Deep sour aroma. Not pungent, just complex and not easily figured out. Flavor of creamy vanilla yogurt over a sour apple, with a little extra sour at the finish, light fruit like apricot in the middle as well. Pretty sweet and creamy, with a delightful sour fruit twang.

Poured from 375mL bottle amber with short lived white head and no lacing. Aromas of yeast and caramel. Taste is quite sweet initially with a very mild hop bitterness at the finish. Body is light and carbonation is lively.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma brings some funky, sweet yeast notes with a little carmel apple. Very clear with a tea-like red/brown color. Very short-lived thin white head. As intended, sweet but with a nice sour balance as the taste progresses. Again some sense of a dry green apple behind the sweetness. Despite the upfront sugar, still manages to finish rather dry. Rich prickly carbonation. A fine dessert.

Amber with a white head. Smells fruity and tastes fruity like candy. It is overly sweet.

355ml bottle, my last unrelated style, hizzah! Pours a deep amber golden with a small frothy off white head. Aroma is sharp and fruity, a bit vinous, a touch of vinegar, a nice funk and dark fruitiness. Flavor starts great, sharp and funky, tart and dark fruits. Towards the finish the sweet sugar takes over and it still has some funk, but its like the dark fruits were just dumped with sugar and it makes for an easy but slightly boring finish. A slight grape sticky sweetness lingers. Medium body and a soft but prickly carbonation. Interesting beer, I enjoy a lot of the aspects of it

I expected this to be awful but it was far from that. Not great, but lets say pretty doable. Nice red / brown color, not the worst smell and taste, ok carbo and body.

My first and only Faro style that I tried, so I really don’t have anything to compare it too. I love the Lindemans line, and this one was no different. Amber in color, fruity aroma, sweet taste. I enjoy limbic style, has the right balance of sweetness and tart finish. Overall, I enjoyed this brew, I would like a few more of this style to compare. This brew is not as popular as the framboise and krieks.

Like sugarwater. Not the choice if you want a refreshing beer, but if you crave for candy, this might just do it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a clear orange/mahogany with a fine white lacing. Aroma of soured fruits, funk, some apple, candied sugar. Flavour is lightly sour, some creamy cheese, apple, candied sugar, and some funk. A lot smoother texture than I was expecting - not as sour. Dry mouth feel, and quite a lot of sweetness, but not cloying, which moderates the sour. Nice.
