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.

Complex aroma of tart apple, tart fruits, citrus, barnyard funk, earthy notes, oak. Flavour is heavy sour with a nicely dry finish. Scores major points in both the sourness and funk department. An excellent Gueuze.

badwhale (376) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Bottle to tulip glass. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of tart fruit and barnyard scents. Flavor is extremely acidic, and a lot of the same fruit flavors. Admittedly, this is my first lambic, and I thought it would be sweeter. This is very sour.

radiomgb (2388) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
375ml bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. Clear golden orange in colour with a thin dissipating white head, some light lacing. The aroma is very sour and tart, lots of green grapes, apple skins, acidic, some wood, grapefruit. The flavour is very sour, insanely tart, highly acidic, lots of citrus - grapefruit, lemons, apples and wood. Acidic mouthfeel, medium/light body, high carbonation. Finishes very long, acidic, sour. Holy shit, this is one sour gueuze. So tart and in your face. Very intense stuff here, not your everyday gueuze that’s for sure.

Pours a light translucent gold with no head. Aroma of very acidic vinegar, funk and oak. Taste is very acidic, dry, hay, earthy notes and funk. A bit too acidic for me

milo91hd (137) - Lecce, ITALY - OCT 25, 2014
Bottiglia 75 CL anno 2013, colore giallo miele con una schiuma fine e poco persistente, una delle birre più sour che ho provato fino ad ora, tuttavia ben bilanciata e piacevolissima da bere

Ulysse (126) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 21, 2014
First acid rush in the nose short lived. Really strong acid feeling in the throat not unlike a failed vomit attempt. Not bad but definitely too sour for most people. Not sure i could drink up the bottle.

Geuze extrêmement acide. Il est difficile de finir le verre. Bière plate directement. Pas la meilleure représentante de la famille des geuzes. Étrangement, si on la bois directement ( sans la faire rouler dans la bouche ) elle devient bcp moins acide

traPISSED (106) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 21, 2014
75cl bottle at home Vintage 2010. Sharp, spritzy, lemon acidity in the taste. The appearance is typical gueuze but the head dissipates rapidly due to the sourness of this gueuze. Typical Hanssens profile. Funky but very citric and sharp. This would hold up well for aging.
