Very clear beer with a medium to large head. Taste is a sweet apple with a hint of cherries. Long-lingering aftertaste.

Reddish gold pour with a thin off white head. Lots of berries on the nose, taste is red berries, a little sourness, a fair bit of sweetness. Not bad at all.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - JAN 21, 2007
Lucky to find this on tap (and on special, 3 Euros) at Clichyís Tavern in the Montemarte neighborhood of Paris. Pours a reddish brown with a creamy head. Smells of sour green apples and brown sugar, caramel. Everything about this beer is sweet. Thin bodied. Like spiced cider, with a bit of carbonation and candied prunes. Has some Belgian dusty basement quality too it. Not enjoyable at all, and the only beer from this fine establishment that I did not finish.

bottle into snifter. Really nice rich mahogany color, clear, with an orgaish/redish hue and a nice white head that fades slowly and leaves nice lace. Aroma is soft and pleasant - very light gueze quality mixed with a light belgian candi quality. Flavor is startlingly sweet at first, but with smaller sips and more time, it gets much more bearable. Sweet Belgian sugar upfront that fades slowly into a somewhat tartish dry (with even a small hint of funk) gueze base. Medium to light bodied on the palate with just the right amount of carbonation - very fine carbonation, i.e. not bursting with an overzealous quantity of huge C02 bubbles that often characterize lambics. Overall: not my favorite lambic style, but very interesting and fun to try.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange color with an whiteish head. Aroma is champagne like, some citrus, subtle funk, cereal notes, caramel and sugar. Flavor is tart and again a little champagne like with some fruity notes of green apple, along with citrus, subtle funk, caramel and sugar notes. The body is light with a dry mouth feel. Overall a pretty interesting Lambic and not as sweet as some of Lindemans other Lambics.

Bozo_skeleton (991) - Grenoble, FRANCE - MAR 18, 2013
Lambic aux couleurs caramel mou. Sa mousse généreuse est fuyante mais elle pétille joyeusement en bouche. Les arômes sont très proche du cidre, pomme, candi, épices. La bouche est bien sur sucrée et ronde mais une pointe d'acidité viens contrebalancer le tout. Enveloppante et légèrement piquante elle accompagnera aisément les desserts.

I was standing at Alís of Hampden trying to decide what to get to drink when he told me I should just get one of these because he was trying to kick the keg. I was not expecting a full pint of it but oh well here we go....

A - Pours murky brownish orange with a small half finger tall white head leaving very little lace down the glass.

S - Smells of musty basement funk, lots of sweetness, and some light salt air. Some light fruity aromaís are present as well but I canít really detect what they are through all the other things going on.

T - Starts off with lots of candied sugar sweetness slowly giving way to a mix of light fruit, dulled tartness, and even more sweetness. Some mineral like qualities creep in toward the end but the sweetness drowns them out quickly. The finish is, you guessed it, more sweetness with some light funk, lingering on the pallet for some time.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, slightly funk, feel that stays on the pallet for some time after consumption.

O - I had trouble finishing this glass. I have had a few faroís before but for some reason this one really got to me. I wonít be getting this one again any time soon.

BillWyce (984) - 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.

12oz. Bottle. Clear amber pour with almost no head but what there is sticks around. Very sweet and sour sauce sort of nose with some fruit. Very muted funk in the back. Very easy on the palate and quite sweet right after the sour. This is the first faro Iíve had and Iím a fan. Sort of. Itís a nice starter lambic.
