Bottle to snifter. Has no head at all. No carbonation. Smells sour with sweet strawberries. Tastes like strawberries with sour after taste. Absolutely delicious besides the lack of carbonation.

solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 14, 2017
Seriously good aroma. Lots of crackery bretta and some lime. Initial taste goes pretty smooth but this beer has a super strange effect like X-Files. After a three second delay, a super sour aftertaste comes over you. Strange sensation. Pours hazy golden with decent head. Tap at Sovereign.

guzgorog (940) - FRANCE - NOV 7, 2017
Robe blonde dorée, pas mousse, bière complétement plate. Nez fraise et vinaigre boisé. Attaque légèrement sur la fraise qui disparait très vite au profil d'une bonne acidité et des saveurs de vinaigre et de bois. C'est pas trop mon truc, la fraise est au final très discrète...

tomer (3751) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 6, 2017
Shared at a tasting, almost no head, quite hazy intense orange color with lots of yellow hues, a bit of acetone at first then strawberries take over with some fruit vinegar and some waffle, flavor of lemon and plum with some feral hints, strong but mellow sourness, light tannic sensation. Amazingly balanced, highly enjoyable and great fun to drink.

murzyn (500) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - OCT 21, 2017
Barwa żółta, klarowna, piany w zasadzie brak. Aromat siano, lekki szampan, troszkę dziko i jakby truskawka. W smaku mocno kwaśne, delikatnie truskawkowe, trochę żywiczne. Spoko pifko.

Rami Rami is drinking an Oudbeitje by Hanssens Artisanaal at Powiśle Nie pasuje mi. Octowe. Agresywne. Dzikusy oborowe. Truskawki na granicy percepcji. Mocno kwasne. Przegiete. Ekstremalne. Sciaga usto. E
Rami Rami: na ciplej, po otwarciu: sporro winogrono-agrestowo-niedojrzalojasnoowocowych klimatow sie pojawia... ale poprawia to calosc tylko symbolicznie

mariuspoenari (2986) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2017
Semi-hazy peach pour, with no head. Completely still. Notes of strawberry jam, funky cheese, apple vinegar, barnyard funk. Really sour and acetic, very fruity as well. Can't drink this too fast, but it is quite interesting overall.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2017 Aromat octowy, ale nie jako? chamsko, rozpuszczalnik, d?emik truskawkowy, lekka stajnia. Smak w op?r octowy. Cia?o te?. Gryzienie w gardle te?. Zero gazu. No co? si? nie uda?o ewidentnie.

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017
Une bière rosée avec peu d'effervescence et aucune carbonatation. Au nez, beaucoup de fraises et beaucoup de levures sauvages qui donne un mélange plutôt funky. En bouche, c'est un peu vulgaire, avec des fraises sucrées, du sucre, et encore plus de sucre. Un peu d'acidité, un peu de levures sauvages, mais beaucoup trop de sucre. Pas très bon pour mes goûts.

superspak (6015) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - SEP 16, 2017
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 1/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear golden amber color with minimal head retention or lacing. Some slight clinging bubbles on the side of the glass. Good appearance. Aromas of big tart/sour lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, green apple, peach, apricot, white wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, leathery/musty funk, wheat, cracker, slight white vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, strawberries, oak, and light-moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/sour lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, green apple, peach, apricot, white wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, leathery/musty funk, wheat, cracker, slight white vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness. Moderate fruity/lactic sourness and light oak spice/fruit tang on the finish. Lingering notes of sour lemon, lime, strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, green apple, peach, apricot, white wine, oak, hay, straw, grass, leathery/musty funk, wheat, cracker, light vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, strawberries, oak, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice malt/sourness balance. Increasingly puckering and drying, but not overly astringent on sourness. Minimal carbonation and light-medium body; with a smooth, acidic/grainy, and lightly tangy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is a very nice fruit lambic. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, strawberries, oak, and light-moderate pale malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink; despite the increasingly lactic/drying finish and minimal carbonation. Classic Hanssens wild funk with a nice helping of juicy strawberries and oak; with a solid malt backbone. A very enjoyable offering, and spot on style example.
