2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bottle shared by Alex...Pours an ugly watery light raspberry, not very appleaing but maybe the best quality of this beer...The taste is light raspberries(generic), a little sourness, and a little vinegar, just not much to excite me...This taste is god awful, its super generic sweet raspberries that is flat. This beer is terrible, an experiment gone way awry.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep pink with hardly any head. Nose is sweet and tart raspberry, oak, sour citrus, barnyard funk. Flavor follows suit with a nicely acidic puckering palate. Lots of raspberry and other red fruits, and a lightly bracing acidity. Kind of reminds me of some of my first experiences with cantillon rose and kriek. Tasty sour beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(375ml bottle). Pours a hazy red/pink color with no head. Looks almost like juice. Aroma is raspberry, some funk and wood. Taste follows suit, but with a little more sweetness and as the beer warms becomes much more sour and quite vinegary.. Thin to medium bodied. Finish is dry. Not quite the beer I expected, but it is tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a crystal clear pinkish brew with no head. Very funky nose, lots of barnyard and berry character. Nice flavor, sessionable acidity and notes of starfruit, watermelon, and berry. No carbonation and a slight acidity.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Cork comes off with a very muted pop, sign of things to come? Poured into a Great Lakes tulip glass a rosy pink color with absolutely no head, booo. Slightly sweet raspberry in the nose along with some underlying barnyard funk. Light mouthfeel. Hmm, the carbonation level is a serious downfall on this one. Mildly sour with some underlying raspberry notes. Vinegar ending.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle traded by MaxxDaddy, very appreciated.
Pours hazy reddish with a almost not existing pink head.
The aroma is quite sour with lots of phenols and vitamins, but also raspberries and a hint of oak and dirt.
The flavour is a better but lags complexity and characteristics. It its sour with notes of raspberries, phenols and hints of wood and dirt.
There is none of the characteristic Hanssens flavours present, it most of all remind me of a non-lambic brewers lambic experiment, which almost never turns out great.
The Experimental Cassis is absolutely fantastic, but this one Ill never buy again.

Bottle. Pours hazy pink with a small bubbly white head. The aroma is very tart and citric with notes of raspberry. The flavour is sweet raspberry, acid, light barnyard and citrus. Quite easy drinkable for a Hanssen.
