375mL thanks to CanIHave4Beers! Aroma-crazy funky. Tuna. The aroma is very potent. From afar you get mainly fruit, but get way up in that bitch and its all manure. Very funky, very sour. No head.

Bottle. Pours a purplish color with a thin white head. Aroma is barnyard, oak, and sour fruit. Taste is same. Medium body with less carbonation than expected.

37.5cl bottle at the Grote Dorst. It pours a dark purple colour with a small white head. Foam vanishes quickly. Smells sour, very sour. And fruity. Horse blanket, dust and red fruits. Heaven. Taste is sour and funky. Very sour. Red fruits come through and almost reminds of a framboise. Body is medium with good carbonation. Overall, a delight of a lambic.

The beer pours a brownish-red color with a few off-white bubbles but no real head. The aroma has some light funk as well as some cassis notes. The flavor features a lot of very tart fruit, as well as some barnyard funk. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation.

Holy canolies this stuff will peel the paint right off the walls! Smells great, like a delicious barn in Belgium full of fruit, maybe a goat and a lactic tang . Looks unclear darkish-purple with some white fizz that leaves quickly. The taste isnt as barn-funky as the smell. Its sour. Very sour. Maybe the sourest beer Ive ever encountered! Its like a warhead candy. Its light and almost painful (in a good way) on the palate with its acidity and fizz. Overall a very fine sour fruit beer from the sourest of the sour lambik makers! Hanssens makes sour old nasty things of great beauty and delight.

bottle pours a very cloudy dark red auburn color with some small off white bubbles on top. Helped get this $16 bottle with a $20 credit I had on my account at my liquor store. Aroma is quite tart, with distinct notes of oak, almost bark-like, fruit-rind, slightly bitter. Medium bodied with very little carbonation, only a slight fizz at the start of the palate. Finish is sour but not puckering. Flavor is tart black current, which gets progressively more tart, with oak rounding out the finish. Overall its good but glad i got this for free with my credit, wouldnt pay $16 for it, notwithstanding if you are very into cassis or lambics in general its certainly one to have.

375 ml. fles bij DHL zonder etiket 2011 Vintage normaal gezien. Fles ziet eruit alsof het van binnen verbrand langs een kant is best wel eigenaardige sediment (?) hoor. Bij ook om deze van eindelijk te geproefd te hebben van mijn derde meers geliefde lambic brouwerij en/of stekerij stekerij in dit geval. Robijn, roze met een witte kraag. Ruikt zoet, muffig, duidelijk dikke sap van vermengd met geplette donkere bessen maar precieze soort is moeilijk te bepalen, ruikt stuk zuurder dan hij smaakt, woudland, veel bessen. Smaak is muffig, aarde, moderate azijn voor deze brouwerij gemengd met geplette, dikke sap, bijna grenadine (niet een slechte zin) donkere bessen toetsen, best wel veel kruiden, het kruidenthee, hoessiroop element van het basis lambic blend komt hier een beetje naar boven, spinnenweb, kruiden, zuur maar moderaat zuur vergeleken met hun aardbeien of frambozen lambiek. Maar ook minder dan die twee. Koolzuurgehalte heeft iets lichtjes weg van bruisend water maar zeker niet zo veel, beetje kleverig, eerder naar platter neigend maar het mondgevoel doet er ergens toch wel aan denken, mineraal, niet slecht, andere tot nu toe dragen wel mijn voorkeur.

375ml bottle that I paid the outrageous sum of $16 for the pleasure of sampling this crazy lambic. I normally wouldnt pay so much but I really wanted to try this one. Dark reddish-purple color, minimal bubbles. Smell is funky like manure and fruit.Flavor is slightly sour and has a pretty robust fruit flavor that almost reminds me of blackberries. I have no experience with black currants so this is the closest thing I can reference. Overall this is a good fruit lambic but given the cost this will be my only bottle.

Hazy red beer with a purple tint. No head. Zero carbonation. Woody sour nose. Light palate - dry. Sour black currants but not acid. Barnyard and a little wood. Finishes dry. Sour enough without being silly.
