UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Bottle: Thanks, Kevin! Vibrant orange body, yielding no head or carbonation at all... Oily looking, almost like a still mead. Aroma is lovely with notes of strawberry, sweet & almost candy-like. Hints of barnyard hay & lightly sweaty funk back up the strawberry fruits. Wow - the first sip is unexpectedly sour. Incredibly sour, puckering... Aroma smelled more sweet, but the taste is all sour. Loses complexity... Less strawberry & funk, more of a lactic, lemon flesh & sweettart sourness that rips through everything. Very timid strawberry & musty funk in the finish, but the acidic notes tower over everything. Moderate vinegar throughout. Flat, oily mouth feel, really wish this was carbonated better (or at all). I love the ripping sourness of the beer, just wish it maintained more of the complexity of the strawberries & funk on the palate. Appearance/body hurts the score, this would be better with proper carbonation.

Bacterial (2719) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 29, 2016
Slightly hazy dark yellow pour. Cool nose on this, funky strawberry. Nice taste as well, nicely tart and funky. No carbonation though - no pop from the cork removal at all. Too bad, this had some nice character to it.

DerGantzel (268) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 23, 2016
Aroma of strawberries, a bit synthetic. Semi-clear golden appearance, not much foam. Taste of strawberries - compared with other sour beers the sourness is high and great, but the taste of strawberries is odd and ubalanced. A flat beer, though a high body.

jason (1821) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 29, 2016
Bottle. Aroma of tart fruit. Body is cloudy orange with zero head. Flavor is berry, tart, acidic and sour. There is an unbalanced texture that makes this a little harsh at times.

bluejacket74 (1751) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2016
12.7 ounce caged and corked bottle, bottled in May 2013. Served in a Prairie lambic glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy golden/orange color with a small white head that fizzled away quickly. Pretty much no lacing, either. Aroma is nice and tart, the brew smells like funk, strawberries, vinegar, oak and earthiness. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like funk, sweet and unripe strawberries, vinegar, earthiness, green apples, lemon and cheese. The tartness lingers around for a while in the finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and easy to drink. The Hanssens brews I’ve tried in the past have been hit or miss, but I thought this was good and I enjoyed the tartness. I’d like to try this again in the future.
