brystmar (1314) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Lot D. Pink-red body, almost zero head. Aroma provides a nice gust of strawberries and funk, yet needs more intensity. Taste suffers the same fate: mild, subtle flavors left and right. And what *is* present isn't particularly special. Another disappointing fruit sour from Hanssens, further reinforcing that the gueuze is the only blend they make that's worth your money.

gunnar (6631) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Kvadrat. Pours hazy golden, no head, seems like there is no carbonation whatsoever.Fruity aroma with notes of strawberries, weak sulphur and acid in the good complex aroma. Flat carbonated as visually indicated. Taste is astringent, fruity and berries, crisp and smooth at the same time, me like.

hackobock (2244) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2015
August 21, 2015. Bottle at home, best before august 7, 2027.
Clear golden with just a few, quickly dissipating, white bubbles around the edge of the glass. Aroma is sweet overripe strawberries, barnyard, lemon, horse blanker, green apple skin. Taste is light sweet strawberries up front with increasing dry tart funkiness. Finish is quite acidic and light sweet with vinegar, lemon and strawberries. Medium bodied, oily texture, flat carbonation. A bit too acetic in the finish.

ippopotamo36 (786) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 29, 2015
At the 8th tasting (round 2), held in Vranovo and Pozarevac. Bottle courtesy of mortlach, thank you man. Pours a dark golden hazy color with practically no foam. Nose: chicken stable, straw! Extreme. Mouth: some extreme sourness, strawberries far away, salt.

luttonm (3308) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2015
At Belgrade Eighth Tasting, round two. Bottle. Pale gold, tiny bubbles. Big chicken shit aroma (ciao Boban!). Waxy lipstick. Super sour, great strawberry funk. Head rush with vinegar, really fantastic. Farmhouse on aroma and body. Funky fantastic, some lipstick but finishes really balanced and in right direction. Loved this.

markducommun (449) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Hazy yellow, no head. Extremely funky, horsey smell, deep dark muted berry. Muted tartness, sweaty socks, deep sweetness. Strawberry somewhere in the mix. Oily medium body, extremely long finish. Very interesting. Kind of far from being balanced, still good.
