Sampled from 37.5 cl bottle, courtesy of a friend. (From Swedish Systembolaget.)

Shady orange color, no head what so ever, part from a few bubbles.
Extremely complex scent. Sour, fruity, sweet chewing gum, it just goes on.
Taste is sour, metallic, sweet chewing gum.
Sour and sweet after taste.
Very high palate.
Very mature, most likely stored for a long time.
It feels balanced in the taste.

Bright yellow color, nearly no foam.

Smells like used baby-daiper, very unpleasant at first, but if, against better knowledge, you are still willing to take a deep breath, you will find very well hidden flavours of ripe strawberries, beneath a tart, fruity load of brett defined sourness. It is even possible to detect a sweet hint in the overall sourness, resulting from the strawberries.

Taste is incredible sour, dries out the tongue immediately, but still leaves some space for a decent strawberry flavour. Begins as sour as it gets, then stawberries come up, adding a lot of fruitiness, which then transforms into a tongue stinging fruity bitterness. It is hard not to cringe at that particular point, still, the beer is unexpected nice, due to its enjoyable, refreshing complexity.

Fantastic, dry tartness paired with sunny, stingy fresh strawberries, leading to a chewy mouthfeel, with an enormous sour aftertaste, which leaves the palate slightly dazed, but very satisfied.

Wonderful farmyard stench and strawberries, some public toilet smells (but in a good way). Flavour is tart and sour, some subtle sweetness from the strawberries, its more the seeds than the actual flesh. Dry, sour and refreshing. Love it. So refreshing and lovely to drink.

350 mL bottle with '2006 Limited Edition Masters Collection' on the label. Been sitting in my cellar for the past two and a half years. Pours a pretty clear dark gold color with a slight pinkish hue. No carbonation whatsoever, I am bummed that the bubbles must have escaped some time ago.

Heavenly strawberry aroma with the delectable notes of lacto sourness. Absolutely amazing, perfect blend of the fruit and lactic acid.

Wow - tart and sour as hell with a very nice and prevalent strawberry presence. Lack of carbonation is a bit of a downer, but I am surprisingly still loving this beer, a delightful sensory experience. Damn I love lambics! Just enough sweetness to counteract some of the sourness. Has a nice bit of 'funk' in here as well. As the bottle drains, it becomes more tart than sour as the palate adjusts fairly quickly to the sour aspect. There is also a mild rubbery flavor that has me thinking brettomyces might be involved here. I wish I had 20 more of these around, awesome beer. Lack of CO2 is the only thing keeping this from an A+ in my book.

When I was doing the Beerfly for the Palace Hotel, I came across my notes for the Hanssens Strawberry Lambic that I had there on the last night of our Easter trip in 2000. I remember it so vividly. Guy (the owner) was behind the bar and he had had some good trade from us throughout the weekend, and produced some unlabelled corked brown glass bottles with, as he called it, Hanssens Strawberry Lambic. The only sign of something strange was a dark red steel cap above the champagne cork but under the cage enclosure. It is now marketed and labelled as Oudbeitje I see.
The first surprise was the color - I expected some pinky red lambic - but this was a dark copper colored murky looking lambic with no carbonation whatsoever, totally flat. This was a lambic that had hints of strawberry, rather than say a steeped Kriek where the fruit is dominant. The acidity was still quite high (good), sourness was prevalant at first, but the tinge of strawberries invaded in the middle and balanced the dryness at the end to a rather sharp but sweet finish. Excellent attempt at a new fruit lambic, only really let down by its flat appearance. I simply must try this again.

Poured from a 375 ml. bottle.

Loved the pungent barnyard mixed with strawberry aromas with this lambic.

My fears, based on a number of other reviews, about the presence of vinegar in the flavor profile, which I dislike, proved unfounded. This is not at all vinegar-y to my tastebuds but definitely sour, as in aspirin and green apple sour. The complexity of the flavors and aromas in this brew is quite exceptional.

Even the lack of carbonation alluded to in other reviews was not that evident in my sample bottle. I found it to be nicely bubbly, in fact just right for the style including the lack of any significant head.

There is definitely a similarity with the sensory characteristics of some of the stinky cheeses like Morbier in both taste and smell and, for me, that is all to the good.

This now is my new favorite brew in this category and one of my favorites in any category. Very refreshing, very quaffable and above all, very interesting!

A- soft tiny pop with the cork, intense funk, minerals, and sour are present immediately. hazy golden blonde, with a pink tinge, no head with lacing

S-minerals, intense funk, sour, barnyard

T- Sour barnyard. Funk, dirty pond muck, lemons, tart berries. The strawberries are present as a tart afterthought, complementing the sour and funk balance. A very nice beer.

M- mircocabronation, solid, feel, sour.

O- I love Hanssens, and I love fruit in my lambic. Great beer. I assume that this and other Hanssens would have much higher scores if they were more carbonated like the Cantillon. However, I am fine with Hanssens and the lack of simple-syrup that Cantillon adds to produce beautiful intense carbonation in there beers. One of my favs, and way, way, way better than the upland strawberry which lacks funk.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Extremely hazy blond with only a few wispy bubbles for a head. A light carbonation is faintly visible in the body.

Smell - Moderate barnyard funk mixed with an awesome strawberry jam aroma. Leather. Apple cider. The strawberry sweetness comes out more and more as the beer gets closer to room temperature.

Taste - Nice sweet/sour dynamic, leaning a bit more toward the sour side. Notes of oak and lemon peel with a big berry flavor. Light acidity - this is a pretty gentle lambic. The finish is surprisingly clean, leaving only a mild sourness on the palate.

Mouthfeel - Pretty light on the tongue. Carbonation is very low and just barely noticeable.

Notes - This lambic paired extremely well with spicy Indian food.

Hazy light orange in hue, w/ a thin ring of bubbles around the rim of the glass. Akin to unfiltered sparkling cider in appearance. Sweet, ripe, sugary strawberries hit the nose at first, then are ceded by notes of yeast must, bready grain, and lactic tartness, with hints of wet horse and trace aged, cheesy hops emerging towards the end of the aroma. In flavor, the initial snap of fruit sweetness is quickly overrun by a nearly puckering tartness. Fruit flavor is not lost amongst the tart character, and strawberry persists throughout, albeit in an unripe fashion. The hint of diacetyl adds a creamy, buttery undertone that supplements the lactic tartness and prevents it from being overbearing and one dimensional. "Wild" Brettanomyces yeast emerges as mild notes of wet hay. As my palate becomes accustomed to the tartness, fruitiness reverts to a freshly picked strawberry nature. Spot on in body-- light, somewhat spritzy, but not at all weak or watery. Finishes simultaneously sweet, tart and dry. Oudbeitje is a complex and delicious lambic. The interplay of sweet fruitiness and lactic tartness teases the palate in a capricious way. The real deal.

Labeled "B. United International's Masters' Collection Limited Edition Year 2000." I hadn't heard of this until I stumbled upon it at the Pizza Port bottle shop a few weeks back. It pours transparent golden with no visible carbonation, aside from the bubbles resulting from a hard pour, which aren't really indicative of carbonation. So, as I said, there is no visible carbonation.

The nose is of tart lemon and subtle strawberry notes. Notes of cheese, musty barnyard, wet leather, blacksmith's daughter, and wet horse blanket. It's pretty damn funky. There's a moderate lactic quality as well as oak.

The flavor opens with a strong citric acidity and notes of salty lemon rind, oak, and subtle strawberries. Brett quickly steps in and provides the requisite barnyard and horse blanket funk. Other notes are of musty cheese and enchanted caves. This is surprisingly delicious. Tartness is at an upper moderate level. Lactic and acidic notes are strong in the finish which, incidentally, is when the strawberries are most evident. They're subtle, but really add a nice touch to an already tasty beer. They stay with you after the other flavors fade. The acidity took me by surprise as I sipped absent-mindedly, causing me to cough more than a few times.

The beer is still, but the oak and acidity provide a pleasantly dry and full mouthfeel. Overall, an absolutely delicious beer and a lucky find. Highly recommended.

Thought this might be sweeter than it was- glad to see that it wasn't and I should have trusted this brewery not to release one of the sugary fake lambics that seem so popular. This is probably the only strawberry lambic I've ever had. Poured a murky golden with no head or carbonation. Not unusual in a real lambic. Aromas of light, sweet strawberry up front, followed by a nice mellow sourness and some funky barnyard smells. Classic. The taste is similar- sweet strawberry turns to sour funk while in the mouth with the typical slightlt bitter taste of damp hay and horseblanket right at the end. The mouthfeel is still, smooth, and even a bit creamy- nice trick, that. Quite decent if not quite transcendant. I'd definitely have another.

Corked 375 ml bottle purchased from Merchant's in Dearborn.

Appearance: Nice pop to the cork. Pour a hazy dark orange in my snifter. There is a slight hint of redness around the edges. The thin offwhite head forms a slight layer on top leaving lacing on the glass. Look about average for a fruit lambic.

Aroma: Beautiful mix of barrel-aged funk, strawberries, tropical fruit and spices. This is slightly tart and extremely inviting. This is similar to Fantome Saison, with more strawberries, fruit, and funk. Let see if the taste follows the aroma...

Taste: At first, it's quite tart. This is followed by strawberry and oakey notes. Also notes of vanilla and tropical fruits. Some rustic aromas lead the way to a very dry finish.

Mouthfeel: This is not as spritzy as some of the other fruit lambics (Lindeman's, etc...). The tartness and strawberry notes hang on the roof of my mouth and tongue for a bit. The strawberry leaves a nice aftertaste.

Drinkability: The bottle goes down too smooth. I could drink at least one or two more of these.

Overall: This is a unique lambic. The strawberry go very good with the oak, rustic, and spices in the lambic. I wish other lambic producers would venture into using strawberries (if they haven't already). This is another exceptional lambic from this underrated (IMO) lambic blender. Definitely worth seeking out for you lambic lovers.

33cl bottle at 't Poatersgat, served in a Drie Fonteinen tumbler, Oudbeitje is a still, strawberry blonde, with no head or lace.

Smell is strong brett, unmistakeably funky lambic, with a hint of strawberries.

Taste is pretty good. Starts out very heavy on the strawberry, then a big lambic blast mid-palate before a very clean finish. Well made and enjoyable.

Mouthfeel is still, slick but light bodied.

Drinkability is high, this slides down with ease. A nice hint of strawberry but still strongly on the funky side, yet remains quaffable and clean. Yummy.

A- Copper, slightly hazy, settled relatively clear, thin ring of head around the outside of the glass lasted through out

S- Initial wafts had gentle acidity with faint strawberry notes, big smell gave a great funky smooth aroma with strawberry overpowered by nice acidity, after agitating strawberry and funk smoothed together for a great aroma

T- Smooth, soft, less tart than aroma prepares you for, starts with a strawberry note with good sourness and thins out to a tart fruity aftertaste, once the palate adjusted to the sourness strawberry and dryness shine through

M- Soft, low carbonation, dry

O- A great fruit lambic, gentle acidity balances out lambic funk and mixes with strawberry well

375ml bottle into a Weyerbacher tulip. Thanks to JAHMUR for sharing.

A: Hazy pale orange body, lightly frothy white head. Ok.

S: Crazy sour, crazy funky. Yeah, just crazy. Cheese, dirt, lemon, strawberry, grass, leaves. Awesome.

T: Super sour, earthy fruit. Strawberries - stems, seeds, and all. Puckering acidity. Clean, sour finish. Yes.

M: Fairly still medium body. Smooth but lifeless.

O: You can count on Hanssens to be anything but boring, and this one is no exception. Offensively sour and funky, and that's why I love it.

Poured from bottle, labeled 2000, into tulip glass.

I was a little worried about this beer due to several recent mediocre reviews; however, I am a big fan of their other brews so I figured I would give it a go. Man was I glad I did! Great beer!!

A: Not winning any awards here but seems on par for the style. Hazy burnt orange with very little head or lace.

S: Oh yes! Stewed strawberry/ Goat Cheese/ Lemon Rind/ Oak/ Wet stone

T: The lemon rind hits you up front and then you get that nice goat funk on the mid palate that fades into a nice strawberry with hefty amount of sourness. There is a slight metallic tinge on this beer, but it is not distracting. Moreover, the sourness of this beer is well balanced. The finish is quite long.

MF: This is a nice medium body beer that has no carbonation.

D: This beer is a real treat to drink. The complexity makes you want to keep coming back for more and the sourness makes your mouth water.

Man I must have scored a good bottle of this, because this is a really tasty beer. I really love how the strawberry integrates into this beer. Well done!

2000 edition. I've had this hanging out in my closet and fridge for several months now, at least. And last night seemed like a good time to give it a try.

Just the subtlest hint of pink in an otherwise dark shade of gold. Aggressive carbonation clings to the sides of my small Hanssens tumbler and forms a moderate head. I was worried because the cork pop was a little less than usual, though certainly still there. Everything turned out OK, though, and the peasants rejoiced,

Typical lambic funk pulls itself off the top of the brew and into your nose from many feet away. Instant salivation.

A bit smoother than most lambics. An almost fruity, mild mid-palate exists here. Kind of the eye of the hurricane, really. Certainly sour throughout, but just for a moment, you can really pick up an almost berry-like sweetness that exists below the surface. Otherwise, this is pure tradition -- solid tart flavors that present themselves from start to finish -- old, tart granny smith apple, ancient funk, and concentrated sour.

Pretty awesome.

37.5cl bottle to gueuze glass

Enjoyed at De Kelk in Brugge while visiting in early June 2012.

A: Bright hay yellow. Single (bubbly white) fingernail head on medium pour.

S: Smells of funk, hay, must, and strawberry purée.

T: Taste follows smell exactly. A very nice balance of gueuze and strawberry freshness here. Refreshing and crisp!

M: Light bodied with soft carbonation.

O: Balanced, clean, and smooth. Fun to drink at a great beer bar in a sweet town!

2000 Vintage. Golden-hued liquid with a quick-to-vanish fizzy head. Looks like apple juice with some cloudiness in the glass. Nose contains pervasive notes of strawberries, a musty barnyard aroma, and hints at some sour acidity to come. Flavors include a huge strawberry profile in addition to notes of apple and pear -- imparted by the yeast -- and a very nice sweet-and-sour interplay throughout. Very tart, but not overpowering. Mouthfeel is mildly effervescent at first, but turns more vinous as it settles. This is a unique, excellent vintage lambic. Would be a nice introduction to the more traditional style of lambics.

Vintage circa 1999

Opens with a light "pop", and pours lightly carbonated.
Hazy, with no sediment otherwise, gold in color with orange shades, and a pinkish hue.
A humble white head barely coats the surface for the duration of the pour, leaving behind a halo of tight and dense foam.
Aromatics are fruity and tart, with an earthy dryness.
Wet boards and straw with dried berries and dandilion oils.
Strawberry seeds crushed with diluted sherry vinegar and puckering grapeskins.
Light to medium in body, crisp and tart. Appetizing and refreshing.
Pallet is smoothish for a lambic, rather mellowed and approachable.
Fruit character is well integrated with the dry, tart flavor profile.
Strawberries not screaming for the lead, but rather playing a role along with hints of orange pith and sour grapes.
A bit astringent on the back of the throat, and acidic on the tongue, but not harsh.
Woody dryness balances a slightly sweet note from the fruit, along with barnyard hints.
Finishes with a peppery warmth, and drying with a lactic twang.

This is a great traditional lambic beer, brewed by the fine folks at Hanssens. This beer poured a nice dark yellow colour with a small white cap of foam on the top. The aromas were of horse blanket, various farm odors and animal smells, musty grapes, and a more general mustiness. The flavor was super tart, lip puckering and excellent. Nice strawberry flavors appearared in the middle, before the dry as all hell finish. The mouthfeel was very lively and carbonated and the drinkability is good if you like these traditional lambic beers (which I do) A far cry from a lindemans, or even a liefmans!

I was introduced to this beer at Liar's Club and came away impressed.
This one's for the review.
Limited edition 2006 bottle.

Served at room temp and poured into my Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance is above-average. Deep orange color with haziness. No head to speak of. According to the website, this beer goes through a "lesser" secondary fermentation so the carbonation levels come through low.

Smell is good. Sweet aroma of strawberries hit first then a lemony sourness cleans things up before the sweetness gets out of hand. Mouth-watering for sure. Funk is all over.

Taste is very good. That same strawberry sweetness comes through beautifully but, once again, a large lemony tartness rounds out the finish. Expectedly, wild yeast makes itself known toward the backend. Sweet and tart flavors intertwining quite well.

Mouthfeel is very good. Leaves your cheeks puckering, your tongue leathery and your gums bone dry. Then your mouth waters and you're ready for the assault again. Carbonation is below-average but doesn't take away too much from the overall mouthfeel.

Drinkability is good. Another bottle would be a pleasure.

Not the best lambic around but one I can see myself going to often enough. Amazing combination of sweetness and tartness.

2006 version. Served in my Kuhnhenn tulip.

A - Unlike the 2000 vintage, this isn't totally flat. A hard pour conjures up a quarter-finger of big-bubbled white foam that quickly dissipates. Attractive semi-transparent golden body.

S - Funky overripe strawberries, acetic acid provides a touch of cider vinegar, barnyard, some light oak, sour lemons and tart apples. It's very potent, and erupts from the bottle as soon as the cork is pulled.

T - The taste is a little more understated, with more apple cider vinegar and less of the wonderful strawberries found in the nose. There's notes of leather, sour grapes, and granny smith apples.

M - The finish is ridiculously dry, with a nice residual tannic character. Very low carbonation - a few more bubbles would have helped. Slick, oily, medium body.

D - Even though it's quite acidic and dry, it's very enjoyable and easy to drink. I put down the 375ml bottle a half-hour, and I would have been up for more - we'll see how my stomach reacts tomorrow morning.

I had another bottle of this that I got from bosse - it was significantly more carbonated, but I can't remember the vintage.

Bottled in Feb 2015

A: Pours with a slight chilled haze at first. That clears up in a bit, with a pale orange/apple cider like color. At first a tiny bubbly white head forms, but recedes to nothing in a second. Though, like everything they do the color is stunning.
S: Jam like strawberries pop up front. Then that amazing funky, cheesy Hanssens kicks in, though the wonderful fruity strawberries are wonderful throughout.
T: Like the nose, strawberries absolutely pop here. Jam like, with a hint of sweetness up front. Substantial acidic puckering, but not overwhelming in that regard. Maybe vanilla sweetness from the oak. Though the funk and cheese cut through immediately. Followed by more fruit in the finish.
M/O: A light to medium body. Almost no carbonation, but that is alright. With the amount of cheesy funk I am amazed at how clean this feels. After the initial and quick sweetness, this finishes beautifully dry. So the lack of carbonation is forgiven. Not as intensely sour as their offerings tend to be, so I find this much easier to drink.

Not the most refined Lambic there is, especially considering the carbonation. That just adds to the curiosity for me, and I keep coming back. Hanssens is always unique, and this is a perfect show case for that. It might not be for everyone, but it s drinking fine for me.

Capped and corked 375mL bottle poured into my Drie Fonteinen tumbler. Vintage 2000. Lot B.

Slightly hazy light gamboge body crested by the whispiest litle isle of bubbles I've ever seen. Legions of tiny bubbles cling to the sides of the glass just beneath the surface but rarely release.

The lambic notes are at the front of the nose with aromas of sour yeast, cork, cellar, and puckering fruit. The strawberry seems negligable at first, but then I began to notice it wafting over once I put the glass down - an excellent background note of wild strawberries (indeed, the illustration on the bottle is that of the Fraise des bois) joins the barnyard notes. You can almost visualize the strawberries growing among a field of wild grasses, violets, etc.

The puckering vinuous lambic flavors are subdued supremely well by the phantasm of sweetness still barely lingering after a decade. The subtle tartness of the berries remains as well, magnified as it is by the sour-cider and light not-quite-red-wine vinegar elements from the lambic. The finish is tart, yet dry with a pleasant light moist oak taste and hints of raw-hide.

Light bodied, smooth, with light carbonation.

Simple, direct, well aged - nature and art in a small green bottle...
