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.

This underdog of a gueuze is a winner! I pours hazy golden orange with a white fizzy head. The aromas are very inviting. Loads of citrus and sour apple peelings. Good amounts of funky brett on the nose too along with clear yoghurty notes. The mouthfeel is light initially, gets oily and somewhat creamy. The taste is mouthwateringly fresh and sour. Again with lemons, tart juices, yoghurt and zesty brett flavours. Aftertaste is clean and morish.. Near perfect gueuze! (rating no. 100!)

Habanero (2615) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 Bottled. Pours golden with a large, white head. Aroma of wood, green apples, barnyard, brett and citrus. Slightly sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A very nice and crisp Gueuze.

boxofrane (2108) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours translucent orange with a small white head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma has a bit of vinegar notes, a bit of woodiness / earthiness, a bit of washrag. The taste is quite tart, longer sourish duration, semi-dry. Very solid.

Mad_Ferret (648) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
U: disig gyllorange två fingrar smutsvitt bubbligt skum knappt någr rester 4 D: sur och rejält funkig med blöt hund urinoar citron bokna äpplen vinäger men tyvärr också nagellack. S: sur och torr med citron äpple lite krusbär vinäger och en lätt ljust brödig ton. Mot slutet känns den plötsligt lite stickig och lite kemisk. Men inte så illa som doften. M: medel till lättare med mjukt frasig/poppig kolsyra och lite oljig sträv textur. T: det började riktigt bra men så hände något framförallt med doften som inte kändes bra. Går inte ens att lukta på. Bad bottle.

vipinvelp (2172) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Aroma is everywhere in the room, strong. Sour green apples for me. Taste is a snap of sour you really have to get used to. Likewise aftertaste, but I like it. (Brussel 201405)
