Draft at the Birch. Pours light red with a thin head. Leaves no lacing on the glass. Fairly solid raspberry on the nose. Extraordinarily dry and tart on the tongue. They’ve turned the sourness up to 11 on this one. The raspberry comes through on the finish. anstei (2450) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 Bottle, vintage 2016. Pours pinkish amber. Aroma is purest raspberry yoghurt, incredible. Body is medium, soft raspberry, but oddly funky and really tart and sour. Yoghurt vinegar palate. Starts extremely well and turns quite odd. A mixed bag. Ritzn (1656) - GERMANY - JUL 28, 2017
2016: Clear bright red with no head. Aroma is light raspberry, brown sugar, oak. Taste is pure vinegar sourness. Very sour and not really drinkable.
2017: Hazy red with little white head. Aroma is intense raspberry, marmelade, some yoghurt. Taste is sour raspberry with noticeable traces of vinegar. Drinkable but too sour as well. Rating for the 2017 version. wlf (676) - DENMARK - JUL 12, 2017

Bottle from systembolaget Sweden best before 2015 sampled 2017. No carbonation and clear rose wine color. The aroma has raspberry but it isn’t fresh , more like an aged liquor. Fruity taste with a big lingering acidity. Dry finish. SlackerMads (3436) - DENMARK - JUN 5, 2017
Bottle. Hazy light read with a tiny bubble head. Sour nose with raspberries, lemon, wood, light white glue. The flavour follows with intense lemon, raspberry, wood, light white glue and black pepper. Medium body, some sweetness, heavy sour. Long sour finish with raspberries. Way too sour for me which has also been the case with other Hanssens fruit lambics. karpik (1285) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Raspberries, vinegar, funk in nose. Pours pink almost without a head. Taste is heavy sour with lots of vinegar followed by raspberries and funky notes. Very tart finish, flat carbonation. Overall too much vinegar, lacks fruitness. I’m a big fan of Hanssens lambics but this one was somewhat disappointing.
