COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As with all Gueuzes, Hanssens is a mixture of several vintages to produce a lambic which is refreshingly fruity.

This is the result of blending different lambics of different ages. The second fermentation takes place inside the bottles and therefore they are stored for minimum six months in constant temperature kept cellars.

SamTheBarrel (316) - Vallentuna, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2014
375ml green corked and caked bottle, poured into a tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy orange with a small sized white head, that reduced quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of lemon peels, overripe apples, table grapes and barnyard. Flavours of lemon peels, green apples, table grapes, wheat bread and wooden notes. Taste is light sweet, medium bitter and medium sour. Palate is medium-light bodied, smooth texture and lively carbonation. A great beer for the style, crisp and not overly dry or sour.

wchesser (1003) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Deep yellow orange with thick slowly fading head. Nose of light funk, wheat, preserved lemon. Clean, tart lemon citrus finish. Full bodied. Tasty, but not the most complex of the standard bearers. Worked great as an aperitif to some pork schnitzel.
