Itís made from malt, wheat, hops, water, yeast. Candy sugar is added before the bottling takes place. It is a clear, light red colored faro lambic with a small, creamy head.

Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a translucent medium to medium-dark amber color with essentially no head. The aroma gives a sour character, along with Belgian/German character malts. The palate shows both of the items, with a propensity toward sourness in the approach and mid-palate, and some residual sweetness toward the finish. Carbonation is surprisingly assertive, but exactly what the flavors seem to want. Hops are not detectable. The finish is lightly sour and subtly malty. Overall, extremely enjoyable and well-crafted; a refined Oud Bruin. A shame that it seems fairly difficult to find.

Bottle. Pours a deep ruby color with no real head. Aroma is acidic and bitter, makes me think of red berries. Raspberry and tangerine maybe? Taste is sweet and bitter, acidic and full of strawberry/raspberry and tangerine flavors. Quite good, but as with most lambics, I find it to be too sweet and acidic to have more than one bottle.

12 oz. bottle from Grape & Gourmet. Dark orange pour with a thin and quickly fading head. Aroma of lemon and a hint of Belgian candi sugar. The candi sugar is certainly more present in the flavor. This comes off as fruit cocktail of flavors both sweet and sour. This is my first experience with this style and I didnít know what to expect but itís really a pretty good beer.

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 donít 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.

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!
