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.

Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog met verrassend sporen van kaas en zuur fruit, tevens iets van rook.

Torrefacto (834) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 3, 2015
Color cobrizo limpio, brillante y uniforme con espuma blanca ligera. Aroma mohoso del brett equilibrado con un intensa sensación ácida de manzana verde. Cuerpo medio, intenso sabor ácido y afrutado, y sensación fresca como de mananza y ciruela verde que se equilibra con una sensación final seca moderada. El resgusto es largo y afrutado.

JBPortland (1095) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 2, 2015
375ml bottle (10/13 bottling) pours semi clear dark amber with a finger of head. Nose is big funky toasty oak, bretty, orange and citrus, some light stonefruit, dusty attic, some acetic notes. Taste is tart, nice acidity level, funk-forward with sweet apricot, tangerine, green apple, and dried orange notes, backed by toasted wood and dusty grain, big skunky hay notes. Finish is tart funk with some dry attic wood funk and light sweetness of dried apricot and old citrus. Solid but on the sweeter side and the nose was a bit acetic. Not the best shelf gueze.

It pours a golden color with a pillow head. It has a sour aroma with fruits mixed in. It has a sour taste combined with being tart that has a pucker factor in addition to flavors. There are fruit flavors with moderate carbonation. It has an extra sour kick on the palate.
