This is the result of blending black cherries lambic of different ages followed by a second fermentation in the bottle. Storage is similar like geuze. All bottles are champagne corked and can be reserved, in normal conditions, for more than thirty years. It is obvious that an amazing taste evolution takes place.

True to the style.. Tart red fruit, tart raspberries, tart cherries and a puckering, mouthwatering, vinegary finish. Not much wood interplay, if any... Just a transparent, sour, tart, red fruit profile... RRBC Supplication comes to mind.. Although not the same.. This honestly has a touch brighter fruit and less barrel influence in comparison. Super sour, refreshing finish. No complaints. I love sours!!! --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2014
Oude kriek with thin, off-white head and deep brownish red colour, hazy. Very funky aroma, lots of horseblanket, flowers, sherry, wet hay and obviously sour cherries. Sour onset, bit vinegar-like, lots of fresh sour cherries, funky, complex, woody and refreshing with a meaty hint of horse steak. An earthy and different example of its style, but I’m sure its funkiness will not be to anyone’s liking, not even those in favour of the style.

Alhoewel ik de oude geuze van Hanssens lekkerder vindt dan die van Oud Beersel, is het bij de oude kriek net andersom, deze was niet zo goed.

Habanero (2577) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2014
Bottled. Pours red with a large, pink head. Aroma of wood, cherries, barnyard notes, brett and citrus. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and crisp Kriek.

Staffan47 (862) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 28, 2014
Flaska 37 cl hos Johan L. (några år gammal, noterade ej årgång). Hallon och körsbär i doft. Pigga bär. Rubinröd. Första klunken är som vanligt brutal men Hanssen. Skarp syra men lite ättika. Blir bättre när man vänjer sig. Ganska tunn.
