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.

Deep yellow orange with thick slowly fading head. Nose of light funk, wheat, preserved lemon. Clean, tart lemon citrus finish. Full bodied. Tasty, but not the most complex of the standard bearers. Worked great as an aperitif to some pork schnitzel.

Väldigt fruktg och druvig i smak och arom. Kanske lite pepprig i smaken också.

Pours clear amber with fairly low white head and a good amount of co2 bubbles. Aroma of tart, peach, green grapes, apples, fresh grass and of course bretta. Taste is tart and apples, but not overly sour. Light, crisp body with average carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

37.5 cL bottle at home. Pours almost clear golden with a large white head. Interesting aroma with a little bit of barn, some malts, some sweet fruity notes, wood and tartness. Taste is quite citrussy with some barnyard and a long over medium sour finish. Quite dry. Medium body and carbo. Better than I remembered it to be.
