Yea, but does anyone like TILT as much as I do??!! It has to be THEE best raspberry soda I've ever had. . . . . . . After a couple of them anyway. . . . . If you can make it through two . . . . . . it's actually not that good . . . . . . in fact it tastes like raspberry ass . . . . . . . It's the worst thing in the world . . . . . . I just threw up in my mouth a little. . . . . .

If you like the Lindemann's, try to find some clones of New Glarus Wisconsin Belgian Red or their Raspberry Tart. They only distribute in WI but they have a soft tartness from the fruit more that from wild bacteria and other critters.
Faro is actually traditionally sweetened in the glass. You can't backsweeten an unpasteurized lambic.
