Labelled as Cassis, not Experimental Cassis. Deep purple. No head. Very little carbonation. Loads of blackcurrant with a tart, dry finish. Drinks like a juice with a bit of alcohol added, really.

Arme acide de lambic. Pas de mousse.Bire plate. Acidit adoucie par le cassis. Ou goute bien le fruit. Lgrement bois. Dommage quelle soit plate

Ulysse (502) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 29, 2017
Lambic aroma. No head. No carbonation, yes you aint gonna find a single bubble on there. Aftertaste of sweet fruits. Like some unusual ice cream flavors at the parlour.

At first I was disappoint, as the beer is really really flat and I had trouble to find any trace of cassis. After a few sip, the typical acidic taste of lambic beer gives his place to the fruity part, which is nice. Interesting but would be really nicer with bubbles

Clear purple appearance with no head. Aroma is a bit soapy and has some paint. Similar flavour.

Mesjasz (1487) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 11, 2017
Aromat trochę standard dla Hanssens czyli ocet winny, lekko mokra skra, nuta wiśniowa i porzeczkowa. W tle nawet trochę obory. Smak dosyć słodki z uwagi na wysoki ocet winny, lekko kwaśne w typie lakto. W smaku wino, ocet winny, skra, siano, porzeczka i wiśnia, muśnięcie beczki. Posmak wytrawny, minimalnie taniczny i pestkowy. Fajne uczucie w ustach, bo mimo tego octu, nie pali w gardło, jest gładko i przyjemnie. Nawet wzzystko do siebie pasuje, choć boję się że będę miał zgagę po całej butelce.

Svartvit (512) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2017
Bottle shared during the TST/TWAT tasting. Pours a dark ruby with a small off-white head. The fruits in this are subdued, Im getting some blackberry and light cherry but there is a very heavy funk on this, bit poo-like, burnt plastic, horse blanket. Its over medium sour, light sweet. Medium body and low carbonation. Apparently there is quite some bottle variation on this, should re-rate it some time.

Juks (362) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 28, 2017
375ml bottle at BeerFox Riga. Pours dark purple, almost looks flat, very small pinkish head. Aroma is massive, lots of blackcurrant in the air, vinegar, green apples, brett. Taste is not as acidic as expected. Medium sourness for lambic. Sweet blackcurrant, woody, juicy, very vinegary aftertaste. Taste is mature and balanced. Carbo is very low, almost full body, bit oily texture. Quite an interesting brew, I expected something different, but still like it!
