I expected this to be awful but it was far from that. Not great, but lets say pretty doable. Nice red / brown color, not the worst smell and taste, ok carbo and body.

My first and only Faro style that I tried, so I really dont 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.

Like sugarwater. Not the choice if you want a refreshing beer, but if you crave for candy, this might just do it.

Matts_Property (837) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle split with mcberko. Pours a clear orange/mahogany with a fine white lacing. Aroma of soured fruits, funk, some apple, candied sugar. Flavour is lightly sour, some creamy cheese, apple, candied sugar, and some funk. A lot smoother texture than I was expecting - not as sour. Dry mouth feel, and quite a lot of sweetness, but not cloying, which moderates the sour. Nice.

Silphium (3193) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle, purchased from La Bodega in Anchorage, AK. Murky sediment-laden orange-brown body, thin off-white ring of carbonation. Rindy nose, with brie cheese, horse blanket, and sawdust, funky and tart, with modest appleskin. Dusty body but distinctly sweetened; tastes like apple juice with a bit of medicinal funk. Soft and flabby, barely sour.

Barnyardy tart lemon tea aromas. Candy sugar blasts the palate initially which is followed iced tea with a touch of lemon. Reminds me of sweet tea with lemon which I had in Alabama.

JDBaker11058 (2008) - Maryland, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Appearance: rusty brown, small fizzy off-pink head, minimal lacing. Aroma: malt, sweet-tart candies, hint of maraschino syrup. Taste: a bit of fruit (raspberry, cherry, sour apple?), but mainly a kind of sweet malt character over a puckering sour tang with a bit of almost saison-like funk. Finish: dry yet sticky, malty and puckeringly tart with a nice sweet balance. Notes: A sweet and sour sauce of a beer. I know Faros are generally light on fruit, but there was some definite fruit characteristics here; maybe from the wild yeast? Either way, I really dug it in a weird kind of way. Very sweet, but also very sour/tart, with a great level of carbonation to keep it quaffable. Rating 4 for now, but Ill revisit with a jaundiced and suspicious eye. Did I REALLY like this as much as I thought I did?

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2012 Refrigerated bottle poured into a white wine glass. Pours clear amber with big off-white head that dissapates quickly. Medium lacing, medium body, slightly sticky texture, and fruity aroma. Taste is sweet fruit (mostly berry) to start, dark candy sugar, and slightly tart fruit in the finish.

Bottle. Clear nut brown body, with a small white head. Aroma:taste of leather, farmyard, wood, sour cherries, acid, with a sweet body. Full bodied. Leaves a "furry" fealing in you mouth at the end of the beer.
