Smell is quite sour and fruity with a little vinegar
Taste was very disappointing. like burnt popcorn soaked in vinegar.
Mouthfeel was alright, although completely flat

The beer comes in a slightly hazy light orange.

The aroma has green apple candy, tart, lemon, and heavy stinkiness of stale hay and urine.

The flavor follows with the green apple, but is not as tart. The vinegar and funk follow through. The beer has decent complexities, but the lack of carbonation on this flat beer was an issue.

Bottles April 2013 notched on bottle.

Definitely notes of strawberry and sour lacto. Pretty awesome flavor, nice nose, great color. Would definitely get this again.

A: Poured from a bottle to a tulip glass. Had an orange-brown color and a cloudy texture. There was a small amount of foamy head that quickly dissipated. No lacing to speak of.

S: A typically sour aroma: Lots of fruit, yeast, and a vinegary quality.

T: Tasted of light fruit (cherries), some Belgian yeast, a hint of malt, and the vinegary quality. Quite sour, but lively and generally tasty.

M: A flat, seemingly uncarbonated beer with a surprisingly lively, prickly finish. Medium-bodied.

O: While this beer isn't quite as refined and flavorful as some of Hanssens' other offerings, it is solid and drinkable.

an odd Lambic. good carbonation and clarity. no head just a small film. golden and light rose color. smell is funky with hints of berry. not a deep great funky. mouthfeel does not get dry. more like a wine taste that is slightly sweet and a little it of tart but nothing special. overall flavor leaves you wanting something better. would not recommend.
