djd07 (8776) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pink with small frothy pinkish head that lasts. The aroma is strong funk, oak, berry. Thin mouth, nice tart berry, funky, oak, light dry finish, really nice.

ContemplateBeer (1945) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 2, 2016
12.7 oz. bottle from Louisville Beer Store (2013 bottle, I believe - my label is a little gnarled); shared with my Boo. Aroma: Pure, strong blackberry that comes off as very tart; lighter basement funk; very light oak. Appearance: Blackberry coloured pour with tight carbonation clinging to the side of the glass; the head is mostly a small whitish ring. Flavor: Starts out with pure, whole blackberry and then has a sharp crescendo of acidity towards the finish, which lingers on a bit. Funk and oak notes are not as noticeable as in the aroma. Palate: Light body, slick texture, lively carbonation, long finish. Overall: This was over the top for me in terms of the sour aspects of the flavor, and also felt somewhat thin. A disappointment, and perhaps for more hardcore sourheads (or maybe one that’s not as wimpy as this reviewer).

Hallstein (419) - Skogn, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2015
Aroma and flavor is much the same, intense oak, sour funk, blackcurrants, with a lingering fruity sweetness. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mateuszk (1584) - Poznań, POLAND - DEC 21, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark purple, clear (if poured properly, big amount of residual on the bottom) with no head. Aroma of red fruits, black currants, barnyard, leather, wood. In taste solid acidity, strong fruit flavour, funk, wood. Acidity is more vinous or fruity. Thin body, oily slick texture, high carbonation. Finish is tart and fruity. The best black currant flavoured lambic I’ve tried, one of the best in overall. Wow, great beer.

Nocturne (1709) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2015
375ml bottle. Dark red shade. Pink/orange tinged head. Blackcurrant, red grape, cheese, funk. Quite a soft mouthfeel, slightly thin, dry and oaky and not particularly acidic at first. Similar elements to the aroma in the taste. A decent lambic.

jerohen (2156) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2015
Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Bordeaux colored, almost no head. Typical Hanssens nose (great blending), lambic, horse blanket, red fruit, powerful and very nice. Thin mouthfeel, but nevertheless nice flavor, remarkably smooth, tradtional fruit lambic but with pretty mellow sourness, quite some fruit, and even some bitterness in finish. Eventhough it may not be their best beer, it’s still very nice stuff.

milo91hd (188) - Lecce, ITALY - OCT 29, 2015
Bottiglia. Colore rosso scuro senza alcuna schiuma, aroma pungente molto acido, con aggiunte di frutta rossa, legno è una nota di stantio, sapore molto simile all’aroma qui peṛ l’acidità (come tutte le Hanssens) si fa sentire davvero tanto.
