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!

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle, from a kind trader whose name escapes me. Pours solid mauve/purple, no head, no lacing. Almost completely flat. Nose is berries, massive tart/sour/acid component, deeper and richer than the Kriek, but still not my favorite Hanssens nose, that belongs to the Oudbetje. Flavours are soft, with cassis notes, a bit odd and sweaty, very dirty in the finish, which I like. Rather vinous and pretty cool.

BuckeyeBoy (5796) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle Thanks to ditmier for sharing this treat. Pours out a cloudy ruby red topped with a small head. Aroma was sour, barnyard, cherries, leather, and some oak. Taste was more of the sour cherries, a little citrus, and some light oak.

Boutip (5856) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle: Poured a deep red color lambic with a tiny bubbly head with no retention and no lacing. Aroma of barnyard and funky notes is quite powerful. Taste is also dominated by loads of barnyard and wet leather notes with nice tart cassis and some sour and light acid notes. Body is about average with no carbonation. Very complex beer with no sugar notes and loads of lambic really coming through even though cassis are still discernable.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2011
375ml Bottle: Aroma of cassis, oak, lambic, wood, and leather. Poured ruby/magenta in color with no head. Cloudy. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of oak, cassis, water, slight funk, and some leather. Medium body. Average texture. No carbonation; totally flat. Medium sweet, cassis and oak finish. I wish it had been carbonated.

Lowe1983 (1495) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Pours a dark red color with a pink head. Aroma is of oak, wild yeast, and some horse blanket. Strong oak and black currant flavor on this one. Plenty of wild yeast and horse blanket on the finish. Not much carbonation.

obguthr (5581) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Very sour currant nose, with a subtle funkiness. Clear blood red. Astringent and sour, but tolerably so, all currant. Vinous texture, tannic even. Not really all that special, but well made.
