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.

Osprey87 (1367) - WALES - APR 12, 2014
2012 vintage. Cold bottle, into a tulip. Perfectly clear orange, slightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma - funky lemon. Body - medium, low carbonation for the style (medium-ish), slightly foamy, tooth-coating sugar. Taste - sodawater, sour lemon, finishes tart, some undercooked chicken. Overall - not my favourite style, but a decent example.

hawthorne00 (2351) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2014
Bottle, 13C. Gold with a white head that lasts awhile. Aroma of Moroccan lemons, damp hay, washed rind/ forest floor, apricots and their stones, both mellow and tart apples. Lively carbonation slightly masks slippery texture. Fruity - apples, Moroccan lemons (including their brine), apricots, with hay - zingy brett notes, moderate forest floor earthy funk, fairly dry and woody finish. Long finish is sour and zingy with hints of mellow sweet apples also lingering. Seemed straightforward at first, but revealed more after a while - that curious lingering fruitiness helped keep it quaffable too.

maxwelldeux (3452) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange-tan color with a very small white head on it. Nose seems to be rather sour and fruity, with some light citrus in there and a bit of sweet figs popping through. Taste is very dry and quite sour, with some nice citrus tones. It’s got a bit of a bite to it, but stays pretty smooth. Nice gueuze.

wouterv (18) - BELGIUM - MAR 20, 2014
Yellow, orange brew with a long lasting white head. Smells of citrus, apple, typical Geuze smell. A refreshing geuze with high carbonation. Nice sour and lemon notes, very smooth. Getting some apple, green tea, however, the sour lemon taste triumphs. This is a great beer.
