Lindemans Faro Lambic

Thanks go out to Kevin for hooking me up here.
Pour is a rich looking, brown with a decent amount of head considering the style. This is not a highly carbonated style and it has the tendency to feel a bit flat.
Nose and tastes are crushingly sweet. Very pronounced sugars and candy notes dominate just about everything else that might be competing for your attention.
The mouthfeel and some of the tastes (and indeed the look) remind me quite a lot of Duchesse but obviously significantly sweeter. There’s a certain quality about this beer which makes it feel slightly old and musty, almost as if the bottle has been hanging around for an extended period of time. I’ve noticed this with one or two other examples of the style and I’m beginning to think that this is basically a feature of beers like this one.
All in all this is not a beer (or a style) that really captures my attention and as such this will be a very infrequent visitor to my table. Nevertheless delighted to have tried it.
