Dunt (321) - Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Received as an extra from a friend on BA. Thanks a bunch Phil! Pours a complete flat deep purple in color with an aggressive pour. It’s completely opaque in clarity. Nose is heavy funk, decadent black current, sharp lemon, horse blanket, and wet dog. Flavor is overtly sour lemon off the bat, then it falls back on the black currant. It has some backing funk and vinegar, but this is almost entirely lactic in sourness. Light mouthfeel, no carbonation, moderate to heavy acidity, and a long finish. Wasn’t much of a fan of hanssens prior to this weekend, but after having the Oude Kriek and now this, I think I am becoming a convert. This is crazy sour, but has really nice black currant character as well. Interested in seeing how these are with age on them.

Seems to be a 2017 bottle. Deep red, a 20 second flash of head and it's gone. Aroma is of brooding blackcurrants, hints of tartness and wildness. The lambic is more to the fore in the taste with the currants providing a fattening richness. There's lemon, some slightly disagreeable barnyard notes, then a sour and brackenish finish. The fruit adds quite a lot of body. Not flat but not that far off it. Acidic and maybe a bit tannic at the end. Rewarding but a mite taxing.

JStax (7175) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2017
375 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear purple with no heqd of foam. The beer is pretty much flat. Fruity berry notes in the aroma, as well as a woody and mineral character. Mildly acidic. Mote of a jammy sweet than anything. Medium body. Alright overall, but could do well with more carbonation. Maybe it was just too old, though. Lot B.
