TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2012
Holy canolies this stuff will peel the paint right off the walls! Smells great, like a delicious barn in Belgium full of fruit, maybe a goat and a lactic tang . Looks unclear darkish-purple with some white fizz that leaves quickly. The taste isnít as barn-funky as the smell. Itís sour. Very sour. Maybe the sourest beer Iíve ever encountered! Itís like a warhead candy. Itís light and almost painful (in a good way) on the palate with its acidity and fizz. Overall a very fine sour fruit beer from the sourest of the sour lambik makers! Hanssens makes sour old nasty things of great beauty and delight.

Nocturne (1380) - 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 (2086) - 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, itís still very nice stuff.

Reynolds314 (2989) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Nice rich ruby red almost purple pour with fizzy pink head. Aroma is grape explosion with lemon and typical lambic funk. Taste is extremely acetic with heavy sour vinegar and tons of lightly sweet jammy grapes that cant overtake the extreme sourness.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Purple red with a small froth. Lots of wood aromas, funky notes, the blackcurrant take second role to begin with. Very sour, hints of lemon, dry wood, especially towards the finish, blackcurrant playing a mellow backbone role. Great experiment.

olio (8203) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2015
375 ml bottle. Bottled on 03/2015.
Pours beautiful dark red color with a small head. Kind of sweet blackcurrant aroma, mild raspberry notes, earthy and slightly woody. Surprisingly sweet flavor, blackcurrant, juicy notes, mild rowan berry stinginess, very dry wooden aftertaste. Pleasant sweet palate at first, turning towards dry and sour towards the end. Refined but maybe a tad too sweet.
