[Bottled. 2018] Knowing Hanssen as big, chewy beers I was pretty amazed by this lifeless, thin-ish Oudbeitje - with strawberries. This has to be more than 5 years old since the bottling. Did this ferment in stored Italian Cheese? The aroma is fantastic. A stunning aroma from old cheese hits you, behind that - a vague suggested strawberry touch. No foam whatsoever. Completely still (or lifeless) in texture. Not as sour as expected, yet acidic. Loads of sauerkraut in the finish.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 9, 2006 Aroma: sourish, vinous, strawberries, summer, vaguely limestone, cask. Appearance: dim, winegum orange, no foam. Flavor: sour, acrid, some sweetness, oxalic acid, slightly soapy, berryish, afterharshness in the throat. Palate: slender, soft, SMOOTH, almost lacking carbonation, soapy. Nice.

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2011 Bottled, 0.375ltr. Golden, lightly hazy beer, with just some white bubbles around the rim. Tart and sour on the nose, with cellar, yeast, green apples and a delicate hint of strawberries in the background. Sweet and sour on the same time when you taste it. It also has cellar, some citrus and strawberries. Unripe strawberries it feels like. Medium, astringent body. In a strange way, this was pleasant, and quite palate-cleansing and refreshing. Rating: 7-4-7-3-14-3.5. 060704

Bottle, 375ml corked. An unclear, golden-orange beer without head. Some strawberries on the nose, but only a faint hint. Its much more in the front in the flavor, sour strawberries, not that almost sweet ones. Tart, citrusy, almost vinegarish and rather funky. Lasting funky, sour and vinegarish finish. Overall, probably the best strawberry beer Ive tasted, and I doubt Ill taste any better as strawberries seems to be hard to combine with beer. 110722

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 3, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2012 (Bottle at home) Pours with hardlly no carbonation and no head. Looks like orange applejuice. Smells lemon and strawberries. Fresh wood, sour. It tastes of strawberries and grapefruit. A bit salty. Sour with no carbonation. Some sweetness in the beginning that turns to sour as soon as you swollow. Long sour aftertaste. Herbs (oregano). Green apples. 5/4/7/4/14 Rerate:(Old bottle) Pours orange with no head. The aroma holds boatloads dirty brett (sweaty horse and barnyard), aggressive tart citrus acid and a whisper of red berries. Undertones of hay/cracker-like malt, cheese and bloody meat. The flavour is mega super bone dry and near heavily acidic with notes of citric lacto, dusty crackers and a touch of cheese. The mouthfeel is tart with no carbonation. Long citric finish. Light bodied.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Barnyard aroma with hints of strawberries. Sweet malty strawberry flavor with some sourness. Sweet strawberry aftertaste.

Magjayran (1378) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Pours a slightly hazy straw color with almost no head. Aroma is slightly barnyard like with a just a hint of sweetness. The flavor is absolutely amazing. Horseblanket funkiness complimented perfectly by a previously unexperienced tangy strawberry flavor. The sourness of the beer does just as good of a job adding texture to this beer as high carbonation would so the lack of heavy carbonation is brilliant. Freakin awesome!

eaglefan538 (3034) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 12, 2006
A true lambic, funky and tart all around. The pour was rose / pink colored, very clear, lots of initial fizzle, but no sustaining head or lacing of any sort. The aroma was of mold, cheese, light citrus, and berries (no, I couldt explicitly pick out strawberries were it not for the label). Flavor followed the aroma, some funk and acidic notes mixed in there. Mouthfeel was clearly acidic, and this was a tart and bona-fied lambic.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2007 Bottle. Golden body with a few sad wispy bubbles. About 90% flat. Nose-BIG sickly sweet geuze nose with alot of funk, hose, and what smells like strawberry. Taste-acidic, muted hose and barn, artificial sweetener, not nearly as much berry flavor in the taste as was in the nose, slight cardboard. Taste like the Hanssens Oude Gueuze but thinned down and with artificial sweetener added. Not bad, but there are much better out there to be had.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head. Acidic aroma, with citrus, hay and hints of berries. Mild acidity up front that blends into a well rounded strawberry flavor, light notes of peaches are also present. Tart, mouth puckering finish. Very nice.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - APR 24, 2006
Bottle: Pours a misty golden amber color with very little carbonation and light head and quickly diminishing at that. The nose is full of tart and sour belgian funkyness, lots of horsey barny notes with brett and crisp malts. Lots of tartness and acidity. The flavor is very robust and flavorful with a huge slap of acidity and a barely noticable underripe strawberry flavor. The finish is brief and quenching. Nice lambic, way different than I was expecting.
