It’s 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.

Backlog. Bottle at a Systembolaget arranged tasting. Slightly too sweet for me.

Faro purchased at Olive Tree Market in OB. Last one. Sweet aroma and taste. Not very sour which was only what I expected. Haven’t had many in this style. Still it was good and I enjoyed it.

Found this at GE Market District-certainly the easiest to find brew of the style and my first. A- Body is a completely transparent slightly dark caramel hue. Pours with <1/2 finger foamy white head that eventually fades to a thin collar with no lacing left behind in the glass. S- Nose is of moderate strength and offers a good bit of funk-cheesecloth, a hint of vinegar, and a sugary sweetness-that seems to be more of regular sweetness than belgian candi sugar T-Taste is much stronger than the smell. The initial flavor of of juicy white grapes, a very mild accent of vinegar, and a hint of cheese. The finish adds a lot of sweetness-almost cloyingly so- to the flavors already described. What lingers is a mild combination of everything described. M- medium to high clarbonation and a medium weight quite juicy body initially with a slightly dry finish. D- This is an interesting brew overall. My first of the style-and I dont really depend on Lindemans to demonstrate the best example-but I have a good idea of what its about. The flavor profile is slightly gueze-like but has a much lighter character and is much sweeter. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-07-2010 22:53:15

Appearance: this beer pours with a medium beige head, the beer is a very nice ruby color, seems clear but kind of dark to tell Aroma: cherry, sweet, grain, creamy, a bit faint but seems complex Taste: cherry, a strong sweetness throughout, some tart, tangy, Palate: has a thick mouthfeel, leaves mouth wet, minimal aftertaste, Overall: kind of reminds me of a very sweet red wine, it’s a good beer but not something I would go for very often

Bottle. Pours amber to brown somewhat clear color with lively white head that disappears in seconds. Aroma is sparkling wine (champagne), grapefruit, bit earthy. Taste is sugar and grapefruit. Start is very sweet, leading to sour ending. Really nice.

nice beverage-- it shows how extensive the beer family can be, this scarcely seems like a beer at all-- there are few of the usual signposts indicating much in the way of malt or hops. one would guess this one is a relative only by marriage: brewing yeasts and some vague malt foundation wedded to dark fruits in sweet noble rot. it's a soft orange pour-- between tiger fur and apricot pastel yellow. there's a nice decoration of ice-white lace like sinuous veins in marble. rich aroma of cherrys, cedar, noga-hide upholstery, and some perfumes common to ladies bath soaps. i searched hard for the "barnyard" aromas, but found only the dried-flower smell of hay-- no horses or goats. extremely sippable, the 25cl bottle is an adequate serving size. is it sweet? duh, yeah, does michael jackson own a bottle opener? yeah, it's way sweet. cherries and apples with a very tart cranberry finish. lightly sour, acidic as a car battery, very soft creamy palette. the finish is all cranberry-lemon, which may accord with breakfast fare: pastries and waffles. contains no buzz that i could desern: this is suitable for children, pooh bears and sweat bees-- and perhaps the serious beer hunter searching for the outer boundaries of what we call beer.

Light red colour with off-white head. Aroma of sour fruit. Taste is sweet with a little wry taste in the background.
