A treat for sourlovers. This is a Hanssens fruit lambic so this is sour as hell. But hell does this taste nice! The aroma is fresh raspberries with lambic. In the taste more of this and in addition some lemon. The mouthfeel is puckering, great. No carbo due to the young lambic. For fans of Oudbeitje. mike_77 (6734) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2017
Light red-pink colour with no head. Aroma is very floral and has plenty of raspberry. Very tart. Slight acid burn. Nice flavour but too much acid. angel77 (3489) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 9, 2017

Clear pink-red colour. Aroma is very much like raspberry syrup. Tastes similar but very sour. Too sour.

375ml bottle @Cimmeria, Oviedo. 06-04-2017.hawthorne00 (3989) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2017
Bottled: April 2016.
In short: oily framboise.
Pours little hazy amber-reddish with little vanishing big bubbled head, no retention nor lacing. Framboise, tart, some sweet creamy nose. Medium body, soft carbonation, oily texture. Taste is moderate framboise, berries, tart, still some residual sweetness, some chewy palate, little dry finish. Good, but i was expecting more.
8/16 bottle. Moody red, no head. Aroma of raspberries, bracken, lemony funk, some vinegar, some acetone (there doesn’t need to be much). Flat. Nice fruit initially but gets blown past. Woody and stemmy, very strongly sour with a rough acid edge. Some good things but this is punishing and past the point of enjoyment. Struggled to finish 375ml.

Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl chez Charlie et Renaud
Couleur rouge, énorme effervescence, peu de mousse
Nez sur le jus de framboise
Attaque framboise acide aucun sucre résiduel alors qu’on s’attend à en avoir plein au nez, bel équilibre avec l’acide du lambic... Peut plus fin que certaine... FinnIckler (570) - GERMANY - MAR 12, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2017 Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Nose got that Hanssens sourness, raspberry, cassis, strawberry. Palate is tart and sour, the raspberry is present all the way through. The sourness is mostly in the aftertaste. Sour finish aswell. My sour threshold has definitely increased, the sweetness and fruityness is more noticeable. Raspberry is not my favourite though. Looking forward to more Hanssens!
Frambozenlambik: Nose is Much younger, more raspberry, more joghurt. Palate is also much sweeter and more fruity. I don’t know if the younger or the older is better. Werckmeister (3227) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 3, 2017
