UPDATED: AUG 3, 2011 375 bottle. Nice to see these finally show up, love the label. Only my second faro. Sweet aroma but with enough funk, sour to seemingly balance it out, kind of a honey aroma. Flavor follows, pretty much what one would expect. Definitely better than the first faro I tried. The lambic part is fairly nice, nice and lactic, funky, sour, medium/strong amounts of sugar, could almost use just a little less. Not sticky but almost there, lively fizzy carbonation. 7.4.7.4.14 . . . . . [rerate for funkybrewsters 73rd style rate] 8.4.11, some more funky vinegar in this one, some tea like tannins as well, stale hay, toffee, caramel...? bit cheesy... eh 6.4.6.3.13

Bottle, thanks to TheHulk. Pours clear orange, thin to no head, no lacing. Nose is sweet, like sweetened lead paint. God, I cant even describe how awful this is... Cuvee Rene is so nice, why is this so awful? Why Baby Jesus? Why? WHYYYYYY?!?!? Aroma of stale beer and bile, like the next morning vomits of a lambic binge. Flavors are similar to aroma. Sticky and unpleasant finish. Metal, sugar. I HATE faro!!!!

Bottle Thanks to inflatablehair. YES my first Faro. I didnt know what to expect so here we go. Pours out almost like apple juice with a small white ring of a head that disappears very fast. Aroma was of sour apples, grapes, and sweetness. Taste was more of the fruit and some spice, as you can guess lots of Lindemans sweetness. Not bad for my first Faro.

Pours clear orange-amber with a large beige head, fine and clinging lacing. Aromas of apple, apricot, biscuit, orange, honeysuckle, and grass. Medium-thin body, tart and creamy. Medium sweet, not cloying, medium orange pith sourness, and a light sour finish with just a hint of bitterness.

Tasted at beer judging school during violent thunderstorm. Aroma of daisies. Taste bias: its sour night. This seemed sweet and luxurious. Thick, smooth, if I knew what horehound candy tasted like I might think this tasted like it.

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!!!!

Smells sickly sweet. No head really,, clearish, reddish brown. It really does taste like cough syrup: thick, disgustingly sweet... and way too damn thick. After the thick/sweet wears off theres not much there. Its kind of gross, not my thing.

Bottle. Pours amber orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet candy like aroma with some solid funky notes. The flavor is a bit on the sweet side but has a nice funky base to provide balance. Enjoyable.

Enjoyed from 12 oz bottle the night before my birthday. This is one of the 65 styles I have left to try according to this site, hence my reason for purchase. Its better than I thought it would be, still very very sweet like the other Lambics made by Lindemans. The aroma is very nature-esque, like a barnyard of wild yeast, not really fruity at all. Appearance has a slight cranberry hue mixed with a regular lager, not much head. Taste again is very sweet, very tart, Im getting raspberries and cheese. That might sound weird but I actually like it. Wouldnt try again though.
