Lindemanns Faro - 4.2% ABV
Here is where I show you what a hippocrit is. A Lambic type of beer brewed only in the Pajottenland region of Belgium and in Brussels. Unlike conventional ales and lagers which which use cultivated strains of brewer's yeasts, lambic beer is produced by spontaneous fermentation by exposing the mash to the wild yeasts and bacteria that are native to the Senne valley (yes my children, the river that runs through Brussels is the Senne). While lambic itself is a type of sour wheat ale (from all of those naturally occurring yeasts and bacterias) the Lamics that you find here have had fruit extracts added. Frambois? Hate it. Peche? Hate it. Cassis? Hate it, too, hate them all.... except for Faro. Traditionally, Faro is a light, low alcohol beer made from blending lambic with meertsbier (a light freshly brewed style of beer) and brown sugar. The Faro we have now though does not add the meertsbier and is a bit stronger.
