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.)

Wenig säuerlich, dafür um so fruchtiger präsentiert sich der Antrunk sowie der weitere Verlauf. Im Mittelteil wässrig, meist aber verdeckt durch die angenehme und leicht süßen Fruchtnoten. Dies kann aber nicht über den sauren Grundcharackter hinwegtäuschen. Im Abgang aber dann doch wässrig. Leckeres Fruchtlambiek, das zwischenzeitlich zu scharf wirkt. /11/12/12//12

This cassis on lambik smells nice!
Taste is less fine, a bit flat at the end.
Had it one the tour the geuze (may 2011) beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - 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, it’s not very acidic also, the fruit is there though. The body is light with a moderately dusty texture and low carbonation. Overall, it’s a good fruit lambic, but it doesn’t have the caliber of Hanssens’ more widely known lambics such as the Oude Kriek and Oude Gueuze.

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. gunnfryd (15269) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 11, 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. Beer5000 (6734) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2011
