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

Hazy deep amber color, small white head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Sugary and fruity aroma. Medium sweet, medium sour taste. Refreshing and somewhat interesting beer.

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.

Bottle. Sour lambic aroma with some sweetness present. Flavour is an abomination - far too sweet with unpleasant earthy elements. I couldn’t finish the bottle.

BillWyce (841) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From notes: Poured into a Lindemans flute- amber color similar to that of a good ginger ale, with a 4-finger bone-colored head. Aroma of earthy yeast with some sourness and a touch of sweetness underneath. Medium body with a syrupy thickness to it. Flavor is mildly sour. There is a touch of sweetness underneath that has a somewhat caramelly quality to it. Interesting.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2008
Amber with a low head. Sugary and dry aroma and flavour like an Asti with a bit of nuts and wood. The perfect beer for too much summer heat.

HIGHB4LL (835) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: slight white head, amber copper color, clear, light lacing, head does not last. Aroma: grapes, oak, leather, prune, awesome yeastiness. Palate: light body, light carbonation, sticky fruit texture, sticky dry finish. Taste: very pleasant sweet fruit, into a malty, overripe fruit taste that balances the sweetness. very slight bitterness. Overall, very pleasant, maybe a bit too sweet, but pleasant.

250 ml bottle from Seijo Ishi in Shinjuku station. Poured into stemmed half pint glass. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Nice sharp lambic aroma with some muscat and berry. Average to active carbonation with medium to light body. Taste is tart with some sweetness in the background. I like this better than Boon’s faro. The lambic shines over the candy sugar. Dry and crisp finish that is refreshing and not overly sweet.

Light orange with big head. Aroma of sour apple, lemon and candied lemonzest. Taste of green apple, candied orange/lemon zest and brown sugar, My first faro, tasty

TrefwoordPunk (830) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle 37,5 cl. Pours light purple with a white head and a rich fruity smell. Flavor is sweet, a bit too sweet but the finish makes up for it. The finish is rich, with sweet, sour and spicey notes. Very good.
