TearsforBeers (183) - Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2012
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.

ciocanelu (1613) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 15, 2016
Hazy red color with absolutely no head. Aroma has lots of dusty barrel and cellar notes with some fermented fruits in the back. Taste has medium sourness, quite acidic, fruity with slight pits and skin bitterness. Light body, no carbonation, quite dry. Overall its really rustic with lots of cellar and damp wood notes.

ruigo (2476) - PORTUGAL - SEP 30, 2016
37.5cl bottle from April 2016. Hazy dark red with no head. Funk, red fruit and acid aroma. Soft carbonation and light body. Taste is sour, acid with fruity notes. Overall, a good beer but lacks carbonation what probably makes it more acid.

Hopverdju (828) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2016
Donkerrood bier zonder schuim. Geur: stalgeur, azijn, zweterig. Smaak: azijnzuur met toch iets van fruit? Neigt naar wat volmondigheid. Weinig of geen koolzuur. Afdronk: vooral zuur.
