Bottle. Pours a clear light amber with quickly disappearing white head. Nose of sweet and funky. Taste is sweet candy sugar, mixed berry, light funk, mild sourish, apple, but a tad too sweet for me. Not bad but by the end was getting harder to drink.

DesertDevil (616) - Arizona, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft at The Flying Saucer in San Antonio. The aroma is incredibly sweet with a boatload of sugar, a touch of raspberry, heavy green apple, pungent alfalfa, and a bit of yeasty barnyard funk. Pours deep caramel with a thick and fizzy head. Not surprisingly, the taste is also quite sweet (but not cloying) with candi sugar, honey, a light cherry tone, some golden raisin, slight vinegar, and a minor grassy note at the finish. It reminds be vaguely of drinking some apple vinegar with a ton of sugar in it. Light and refreshing body with a minor puckering texture. From previous experience with Lindemans, I didn’t expect much from this beer, but its drinkability was a nice surprise, though I find it too touch to enjoy on a regular basis.

Alpha10 (402) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
2015/04/22 - Pours a dirty amber-brown colour with an off white head that quickly vanishes without lacing. Aroma is sweet; sugar, honey, apples, hay , dark fruits, barnyard, Brett and a touch of vinegar. Taste is predominantly sweet with a mildly sour finish; apples, hay barnyard, vinegar, cherry, honey, sugar and hints of wood. Mouthfeel is a touch syrupy, with average carbonation and a sweet, acidic and mildly tart finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cervmagpt (317) - PORTUGAL - APR 22, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2208 guidelines (style 17D/17E, adapted). Bottle 25 cl - Batch GA220FA021454. AROMA: complex brett aromas with notes of goat, horse and barnyard, balanced with a moderate sour/acidic aroma. no hop aromas. APPEARANCE: dark gold color (dark orange) and slightly hazy, with a thin ivory head with poor retention (lambic). TASTE: very sweet flavour that masks the brett characteristics, giving them only a faint character. bitterness absent with a sweet finish. PALATE: medium-low body with medium-low carbnation. OVERALL: a faro-style lambic wich is very sweet and can be a good entry point to the lambic/gueuze world.

yourilevesque (170) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
Très mauvaise semaine de mon côté avec les produits Lindeman’s; après la pomme que j’ai détestée au plus haut point, la Faro. Cette dernière partait cependant du bon pied: joli look, nez bien acidulé duquel n’émanent aucune odeurs artificielles ou saturées. Non le nez est bien construit présentant les aspects propres au style lambic: petits fruits rouges et vifs, vapeurs acétiques, champignons, terre mouillée. Cette bière aurait été très agréable si ce ne fut de la quantité invraisemblable de sucre dont les brasseurs l’ont pourvue. L’impression que j’en retire est que ceux-ci ont voulu rendre le style accessible à tous en sucrant ce produit de manière artificielle et démesurée mais l’ont rendu ainsi difficile à déguster sans un verre d’eau à proximité tellement la bière est s’en trouve alourdie. Tout cela est bien dommage.

Pink amber hue with no head. Nose is composed of sweet caramel, sweet fruity notes and a tiny bit rubbery. Flavour is honey like with sweet fruits, slightest tartness and wood. First faro for me, not really an instant favorite, but alright. Too sweet for me.

0.375 bottle. Hazy, dark amber color and a small, white head. Sweet and sour fruity aroma with hints of candy and some unfortunate metal. Taste is really sweet: candy, fruits, honey, sugar, sour fruits as well. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish is also sweet and very fruity. Overall this is my first faro, and although I do not have a developed taste for it I certainly enjoyed this one.

brnandersen (2283) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 11, 2015
25 cl. bottle poured in to a Flute. Hazy, copper colour with a golden hue. Fluffy, white head. Slightly tart aroma with dusty hops, light barnyard, candid sugar, wooden notes, tart fruits - apples. Taste is lightly sour. Medium body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes dry and lightly sour - well balanced with candid sugar/acidic notes. Nice Faro Lambic - a good start in to the world of Lambics.
