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.

mecafilo (182) - Perugia, ITALY - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle @ home. Pours with an amber colour, small diminishing white head. Aroma is quite acidic, even for a gueuze; rich in floral and fruity notes, elegant; only slight basement aromas, quite faint. Taste is medium sweet, medium sour, very well balanced, pleasant. Light body, watery texture, average carbonation.

Ippopodio (134) - ITALY - DEC 16, 2015
Bel colore dorato con riflessi rosati che influenzano anche il tono dell'esile e sfuggente schiuma. Al naso subito mela verde, uva bianca, acido lattico agrumi e paglia bagnata ; poi il calore porta su i più tipici sentori del lambic: animale, sudore. In bocca è frizzante e secca con un corpo medio-leggero. Un ottimo aperitivo da abbinare a sfiziosi stuzzichino anche fritti.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4031) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 4, 2015
375ml Bottle. Hanssens Oude Geuze 6% A beautiful orange gold pour with a fizzy head & a great tart nose of fruits(lemon, plum, strawberry), a bit bready (muffin like but faint) which ends in a peppery oak funk. Full bodied and effervescent, it’s got a refreshing dry finish. The taste is tart lemon, grape seed, oak, vanilla, nutty and ascerbic. Mouth puckering goodness, I can totally imagine a laborer pounding this pack on a hot sunny day. Great stuff.
