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.

Bottle of 37.5cl, in a Tumbler glass; from the fridge. A beautiful clear-brown colour, with a nice aroma of lambiek Nice taste of faro lambiek (sucre candy and vinegar), but maybe a little too sweet. Try it.

weordie (193) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2015
Pours a ruby red with zero head. Aroma of brandy, vinegar and blueberries. Very sweet with hints of cherry and quite a strong acidity to it. Not my style of beer at all.

Lothore (571) - California, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a small, off white head that leaves lacing on the way down. Smell is sweet, raisin, caramel, candied cherry. Really sweet all the way through. Candy sugar, port, grape soda, light barrel notes. Medium to heavy with medium low carbonation. Really interesting brew but definitely not my style.

Pierwszy pity lambic. Aromat winny, poza tym wyczuwalne jabłka. W smaku kwaskowość kontra słodycz od karmelu. Widoczny wpływ karmelu na barwę piwa.

Sweet Faro, nice ripe fruits, caramel and light acidity, not sour at all. Leaves a delicate cherry finish.
