Na początku mocny aromat bardzo przyjemny, nieco stajenny, owocowy. Barwa bursztynowa, nieco zamglone, piana nikła, która szybko ginie. W smaku kwaśne, fajne, stajenne, owocowe. Ogólnie krótko mówiąc; świetne piwo.

Butelka 250ml, barwa bursztynowa, klarowne, piana nikła, zostaje obrączka przy krawędzi szkła, bardzo ładnie się prezentuje. Aromat bardzo wyrazisty, trochę octowy, stajenny, lekko słodkawy, przywodzi nieco na myśl zielone jabłko. W smaku jest początkowo delikatna kwaśność (jak na lambica), która powoli ustępuje miejsca delikatnej słodyczy. Do tego bomba posmaków stajennych i owocowych. Bardzo delikatna kontra goryczkowa na końcu. Piwo jest bardzo lekkie, ale jednocześnie wyraziste, idealny balans.

Great Lambic with Large pallet and film body, slightly bitter aftertaste. One of the best in its kind! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My first lambic sharzie from RD. Had to decide to rate this according to whether I liked the taste. My inexperience means I could not judge it’s appropriateness to style. Red wine, tarte vinegar, sweet malt. Nice on salty chips but gave me heart burn.

La Lindemans Faro est une bière de blé (froment) de fermentation spontanée et au goût aigre-doux parfaitement équilibré par l'ajout d'une dose supplémentaire de sucre candi. Elle présente une robe de couleur rouge-orangée qui se surmonte d'une fine couche de mousse blanche. La Lindemans Faro révèle des arômes boisés et aigre-doux de fruits, de fruits secs, de caramel et de sucre candi. On retrouve en bouche une pointe d'acidité qui s'accompagne de saveurs douces et sucrées de fruits, ainsi que de légères touches boisées.

First rating for the Faro style. Not that easy to find as RateBeer shows only 16 active examples of the style. 375 ml bottle purchased at Beverage Warehouse while on a business trip to Los Angeles some 19 months ago ($6.99). POURS a nice sun-brewed tea color, like a deep sunset orange/amber with two fingers of effervescent white foam. AROMA of a not-too-tart vinaigrette, some musty basement, wet oak, a bit of stewed dark fruits, and some red wine that’s been sitting out for too long. FLAVOR of wine-y vinegar, nice berry / fruit touches (strawberry, raspberry, perhaps peach and apricot), mild brown sugar, simple syrup, with some bits of tart funk. I expected something more tart on the tongue, but the added brown sugar does come in to make this a less puckering affair. I wonder if the aging has decreased the sweet content. First experience of this style, and it was pleasant enough (don’t find it cloying like many of the other raters). (1538, 1024)

Shared 12 oz. bottle. Amber with a white head and plenty of particles floating around. Aroma is tart, vinous, fruity and sweet. Taste is sour, fruity, malty, vinegar, and very sweet. Has an exceptionally sweet candied sugar finish. Overall, it’s a bit strange.
