UPDATED: AUG 13, 2004 At the Brugs Beertje,Outstanding fruitbeer on a lambic basis. Oudbeitje has a great golden-orange color and no head. The smell is fresh and lively. It has this tipical lambic aroma’s with a hint of fraise de bois.It smells allmost like a great burgundy wine. The taste is fresh and sour, a little out of balance but still a great beer in its own style.

marcus (6988) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 6, 2004
This lambic ale poured with no head and elicited a sharp fruity aroma. The flavor was dominated by the unmistakable lamibic base and the taste of sweet strawberries was not as subtle as with most good fruit-flavored lambics. Not quite on par with the other Hanssens lambics, but was very drinkable.

Hazy bright orange, no head. Very sour apple (and strawberry) aroma. Very earthy, fruity, some strawberry. Sour but same time fruity and sweet. Gives nice strawberry aftertaste.

hazy golden orange color, no head, yep, there’s strawberry in the aroma, plenty of hot asphalt, and plenty of sour, but also has an interesting candy sweetness to the aroma. Flavor is not nearly as sour as one would expect from the aroma. flavor has some strawberry, some asphalt, mildly astringent. mouthfeel is fairly light..a very nice lambic.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2004
Warm orange-golden colour. No head, no carbonation. Strawberry (plenty!), apples, sour, woody-grapefruity bite. Very good - especially after the first few mouthfulls...

Bottle says Limited Edition Year 2000. Pours mostly flat, with some bubbles on the side of the glass but otherwise still. Amber-rose color; hazy with the yeast poured in. Attractive aroma that revealed strawberries later on but otherwise had a noticeable cheese aroma (Cheshire or a crumbly Wensleydale cheese, in particular); noticeably sour. The first sip attacks the palate with a wonderful edge of sour, some fruit and tangy lambic flavors, though muted by the fruitiness. As acidic on the throat as almost any lambic, perhaps not the best version of sourness, in that it mimics the stomach-acid-in-the-throat feeling that you get when throwing up. But don’t overstate that; on the whole it has a very nice bite to it and otherwise has a good mouthfeel (smooth, low carbonation). Fun beer to drink.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
It had a rather strange aroma. Somewhat like cheese or so. Sweet and round start. Strongly sour finish and a distinct bitter aftertaste. Strong bitter aftertaste.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Pours an orange color that is somewhat hazy. No head whatsoever. Aroma is over-ripe fruit with some sourness as well. Flavor is tart strawberries with some organic grassy notes. Body is medium. A pretty decent beer.

Slighlty hazed orange body, terrible looking soda head. The nose gives a little bit of strawberry but mostly it is leather al warpped up in an acidic punch. After further consoltation with my glass I am also picking up some cheese notes. Really. The flavor is a big sour punch followed by strawberries and a definte acidic character. Medium light body, kind of a flat finish but very refreshing none the less.
