italarican (1544) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Bottle at Eulogy. Pours a shiny straw color. Aroma is sharp of acetone with plenty of lemon. The flavor is 65% funk and barnyard, 35% mouth-puckering tart peach, lemon, and raspberry. Sharp acidic bite with an awesome funky dryness. Slightly syrupy body. Overall, wonderful.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2011
Small white head. Hazy deep purple body. Deep earthy funky blackberry aroma with barnyard notes. Dryish rounded deep earthy fruity taste is simple and short. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry raisiny watery port aftertaste with raisiny waxy notes. Loong aftertaste. Really unusual, and highly drinkable. (Taster at the brewery.)

Koelschtrinker (19707) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Wenig suerlich, dafr um so fruchtiger prsentiert sich der Antrunk sowie der weitere Verlauf. Im Mittelteil wssrig, meist aber verdeckt durch die angenehme und leicht sen Fruchtnoten. Dies kann aber nicht ber den sauren Grundcharackter hinwegtuschen. Im Abgang aber dann doch wssrig. Leckeres Fruchtlambiek, das zwischenzeitlich zu scharf wirkt. /11/12/12//12

Pours bright ruby into a tumbler. Pink head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Sour black currant aromas. Soft and tart with currant front to back and lasting bitter ground seed finish.

beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 20, 2011
The pour reveals a cloudy dark red color with almost no head. The aroma is what I expect from a Hanssens fruit lambic, lots of funk reminiscent of manure, and a good dose of fruits. While I like the aroma a lot, the flavor is kind of a let down, the funk is milder than what I expect from a Hanssens, its not very acidic also, the fruit is there though. The body is light with a moderately dusty texture and low carbonation. Overall, its a good fruit lambic, but it doesnt have the caliber of Hanssens more widely known lambics such as the Oude Kriek and Oude Gueuze.

boamr (310) - Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2011
Pours a dark red color. Not much in the way of carbination. Has a cherry, black current, and a slight vinagar smell. Taste is about the same. Not horrible but not great either.

wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2011
Tasted on 3/27/11 from a 330mL bottle at Lush West Town. Pours cloudy garnet with no head whatsoever. The nose is super funky with burnt rubber, vanilla oak, a ton of citrus sour notes, and dark berry fruits. The flavor is sour and funky with burnt rubber, lemon, wheat, vanilla oak, and dark berries. The body is medium with no carbonation and a long funky, lemon, and dark berry finish, and also very tannic.

Bottle. Slightly dim reddish orange body almost without any head. Nice funky aroma with acidic blackberries. Flavor is funky, barnyard, acidic and fruity blackberries. A bit unusually, quite fruity and very nice.
