Bottle 0,25 l. Darkish hazy amber or copper, good white head. Nose is malty, sweet berryish, some syrup and candy. Flavor is sweetish, slightly sour with a beefy malty backbone. Some berries and sour fruits maybe in there, but very sweet altho in a nice way. Good pleasant mouthfeel, pretty rich texture for the abv.

Aroma is sour, funky, sweet apples, horse, and wheat. Pour is a faint copper color. Taste is sweet like nutrasweet, very lactic vinegar like Dutchess, oak, apples, and a sour twinge. Finish is sweet, but a bit dry from the sourness and carbonation. Decent, but faro is not my favorite style.

Piwo pieknie zapakowane, w aromacie za dużo końskiej derki, zwłaszcza po lekkim ogrzaniu się, smak - spora kwaśność octowo-winno-wiśniowa, lekka pestkowa goryczka i słodkość rodzynkowa (od kandyzowanego cukru). Niestety w smaku także wyczuwalna stajnia i za dużo octu winnego.

This beer has a amber body - hue apperance and a coarse white scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is sweet with a light acid tutsh.

This is my first lambic that I am rating on this site. It is also one of the rarest lambic styles I have been told. Had a pop up cap with a cork as well. Silly to be sealed twice I think. Label on bottle is fairly fancy. I like it. Pours an orangeish brown color with a medium sized off white head. Is pretty fizzy. Smells of sugary goodness mixed with some sort of fruit (pear? cherry?). Has a nice look to it. Taste is very sweet, almost like sugar. Little bit of carbonation in their with some plums in the taste. Wasnít sure what to expect with the lambic. A little sweeter than I expected but not a bad drink. Oh and purchased by my boy scotty bo botty. Holler.

still not a big fan of the style, but this is a decent beer i guess. Pours a clear watery red with a tiny white head. Sweeter than I expected, still has that barn yard funk that Iím not a big fan of. I like this better than a gueze but will not be making a major effort to try this style again.

Bottle. Sour lambic aroma with some sweetness present. Flavour is an abomination - far too sweet with unpleasant earthy elements. I couldnít finish the bottle.

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.

0.75 l bottle from Pivoteka Zagreb. Shared with Vi?nja and Goran. Thanks! Blue cheese, cider, wine, dry fruits. Full taste, cellar aroma, sour bite, then sweet finish. Dry fruits. Medium body. Pleasant.
