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.

slowrunner77 (9234) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 3, 2016
LOL "TOP 50" in style, while being 59th percentile. Not the most impressive version - kinda like a starter geueze. Had some lemony acidic tartness but is missing the layers of the better examples. Some hay and farm as well. OK, but a one timer for the price.

This is quite light but fulfilled taste beer. A bit on the acidic side but that brings out all the undertones. Very refreshing.

Franchement, je suis un peu déçu. Dès l’ouverture de la bouteille, le "poup" à peine perceptible laisse déjà entrevoir une faible carbonation. Je n’ai donc pas été surpris de voir qu’aucune mousse ne se forme. Arômes fruitées et un petit je-ne-sais-quoi un peu désagréable (bactérie? Fût de chêne?). Sûre en bouche et pas trop mal, sauf de nouveau cet arôme désagréable, quoique heureusement subtile. Pas ma lambic préférée.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - JAN 24, 2016
37,5 cl bottle. Hazy orange with a thin head. Classic aroma, funky barnyard, sour apples, vinegar. Taste is dry and moderately sour. Thin body, very soft carbonation. A light gueuze.

Garlic_of_Doom (619) - SWEDEN - JAN 17, 2016
Orange/clear amber with a white ring of foam. Tart aroma with ripe pears, green apples, hay, grass, very fresh and crisp. Taste is dry, light woody with green apples and the white part of citrus fruit peel, whatever that’s called. Light body and carbonation, dry.

For the price, the taste is too light/faint. Aroma is really good though.
