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.

Cimbasso (620) - - SEP 13, 2015
Sampled from a shared bottle at a beer tasting at The Cardinal, Stavanger August 2015. Clear, straw colour with a sour/sweet taste with flavours of red fruit, especially red currants and raspberries. Hints of cider vinegar, but a very mellow and well-balanced taste. Very full palate. The taste would balance very well with rich, creamy food. A great and characterful beer.
