Bottle to snifter. Has no head at all. No carbonation. Smells sour with sweet strawberries. Tastes like strawberries with sour after taste. Absolutely delicious besides the lack of carbonation.

Bacterial (2711) - 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 (266) - 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.

Beerhunter111 (14701) - Hasborn, GERMANY - APR 22, 2016
Fast klare goldene Farbe, wenig weißer Schaum. Geruch nach frischen Erdbeeren, dezent fruchtig, mehr säuerlich. Geschmack sehr sauer, frische Erdbeeren, trocken, leicht kratzig.

jason (1819) - 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 (1742) - 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.

daje (3332) - NORWAY - MAR 21, 2016
Bottle at Amundsen, march 19th 2015. Unclear orange body, small white lacings. Funky aroma with leather, berries. Taste is tart and lactic, wild berries, citric finish.

tandembrauer (1015) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle at Øst, Stavanger. Pours clear reddish amber without any head. Aroma of glue, lemons, horse stable, strawberry. Tastes sour. No CO2 whatsoever. Disappointing.

tmrmwel (1645) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear reddish orange, with an ever so slight creamy head. Aroma is a rather strange funky sweetness of strawberries, grapes and wine gums, as well as red berries, wine vinegar and wooden brett. Medium body, with almost no carbonation. Flavour is sour with grapes, fruit peel, berries and light wood, as well as some funky brett, vinegar and farmhouse notes.

markextrae (3199) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2016
Sample from bottle, hazy light orange colour pretty flat. Nose of grains, fainted malts, wet oak, red fruits, raspberry aroma, and strawberry. Somehow i always get a arteficial sweet taste when i have strawberry in a sour beer. Just doesn’t work for me
