pours light clear amber. No head. Sweet sour aroma. Very gripping. Flavour is sour and sweet than sour again. Very offensive. Too sweet, too sour all over the map. Faro sucks!!!!

My first and only Faro style that I tried, so I really don’t have anything to compare it too. I love the Lindemans line, and this one was no different. Amber in color, fruity aroma, sweet taste. I enjoy limbic style, has the right balance of sweetness and tart finish. Overall, I enjoyed this brew, I would like a few more of this style to compare. This brew is not as popular as the framboise and krieks.

DrewFace (965) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Pour is a fairly clear for a lambic. Light red color. A bit of funk in the aroma. Flavor is very sweet. Fruity light cherry flavor, a slight sourness in the back but barely. Medium body and fairly flat.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 14, 2011
Draft, Beveridge Place Pub. Cloudy brownish amber, small white head. Smells like a sweet gueuze, a bit of funk, lemon, sweet and sour apple. More sugary sweet at the start than it smells, moving to sweet apple and berry flavors, tart lemon, some lambic funky earthiness in there. Interesting and surprisingly drinkable, but I think I prefer other styles of lambic more.

BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark reddish brown with a white head. Aroma is of malt, funk, fruit, and spice. Taste is sugary sweet, with a distinctive sour tartness as well. All the flavors seem to drop off abruptly in the finish. Very sweet. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Body is medium and heavily carbonated. Its good, its just not my thing.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear orange red with quickly settling, off-white head. Aroma is sour apple, sugar, candy. Flavor is sweet, candy apple, sugary finish. Soft carbonation, medium body, and sugary, syrupy texture. Friggin’ sweet.

BillWyce (959) - 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.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle Pours a clear amber with a bubbly white head. The head leaves quickly and leaves spotty lacing at best. Aroma is strong hints of acid, some sweet candy, fruits, and malts. Has a light carbonation. The flavor is pretty good. A little too sweet for me but really drinkable. has a medium body. The finish is good and the aftertaste lingers for some time. Not really my style but good.

Hammy78 (957) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear orange copper, thin whitish head, minor lace spots. Nose is sweet, fruity, a little funky. Tastes sweet, tart, a little honey and some ginger too. Really quite tasty and different.

Lemke10 (956) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2013
This pours a beautiful semi-clear, copper color with a bubbly, off-white head. The scent is yeasty combined with aged, sweet fruits. There is a sweetness of candied sugar that is like no other. Very smooth, tasty, and unique. Style points aside, this is quite a delicious desert beer that is best enjoyed by itself after dinner, in my opinion. By far the easiest Lambic-Faro to find on the market!
