The pour reveals a cloudy dark red color with almost no head. The aroma is what I expect from a Hanssens fruit lambic, lots of funk reminiscent of manure, and a good dose of fruits. While I like the aroma a lot, the flavor is kind of a let down, the funk is milder than what I expect from a Hanssens, it’s not very acidic also, the fruit is there though. The body is light with a moderately dusty texture and low carbonation. Overall, it’s a good fruit lambic, but it doesn’t have the caliber of Hanssens’ more widely known lambics such as the Oude Kriek and Oude Gueuze.

Pours a dark red color. Not much in the way of carbination. Has a cherry, black current, and a slight vinagar smell. Taste is about the same. Not horrible but not great either.

wedgie9 (2638) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2011
Tasted on 3/27/11 from a 330mL bottle at Lush West Town. Pours cloudy garnet with no head whatsoever. The nose is super funky with burnt rubber, vanilla oak, a ton of citrus sour notes, and dark berry fruits. The flavor is sour and funky with burnt rubber, lemon, wheat, vanilla oak, and dark berries. The body is medium with no carbonation and a long funky, lemon, and dark berry finish, and also very tannic.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2011
(375ml bottle) Pours ruby red with no head. Beautiful color. Aroma of vinegar, fruit and funk. Taste is vinegar and some ripe (but not very sweet) fruit. Thin bodied with dry finish. The flavor is not as sour as the nose implies. Nice fruit to pair with the sour.

dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - MAR 6, 2011
bottle shared with dosbeerigos. Color is pinkish/purple with no head to speak of. The aroma was like smelling a dirty diaper, needless to say, god awful. Flavor was tart and sour but the aroma just could let me enjoy it. Somewhat of a mess

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2011
Bottle traded by MaxxDaddy, thanks its very appreciated! Shared with Andreasen11. Pours a murky deep red with no head. Lovely sour aromas of ripe black currents, dry grape, leather, dirt and oak. Much better than expected and very familiar to the Hanssens Oude Kriek. The ripe black currants it very well balanced in the flavour, not as up front or sweet as in other black currant lambic’s I have tasted. At the same time it is still extremely sour and with the typical Hanssens dusty, woody signature just as expected. I love this stuff!
