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.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2005
Yellow-amber colour, creamy withe head, lots of sprankling. Sour aroma, yet fruity. Palate is sour, with some herby touches. Finish stays sour. What a beer, I love this one.

Shared this 750ml bottle with Suiiy, Joshuab and ClarkVV. Smelled like Hay and a horse barn. Very tasty with a good sour finish. Best beer I’ve ever had.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2005
750ml bottle shared with clarkvv. Pours a light orange with a fizzy white head. Nose is yeasty and grassy, barnyard maneur smell. Taste is very fresh with a light sourness to it. Lots of yeast and grass here too.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2005
Aroma: sour, soapy, currants, unripe gooseberries, baby powder, cask, wheat leaves. Orange, half-clear, head dissipates instantly (white). Sour, burnt, some hidden sweetness, slightly bitter, lactic. Sweet and metallic aftertaste. Harsh, sharp, acrid in the throat, chemical, very fresh somehow. Feels sticky and malty after a while.

Pailhead (4418) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - OCT 31, 2005
Bottle: Sour apple aroma with light vinegar. Pours a transparent golden-orange with an insignificant white head. Sour apple flavor with light woodiness in the finish. Not as tart as some of the big guys. Light cider flavor in the background.

rudolf (2324) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Lemon, oak, strawberries, funky heaven. Dusty gold body with a thin white pillow of a head. Somehow this looks like Fall in a glass. Lemon, light malt, so acidic, sour, fruity. Oak, strawberries, grapes. Something in there is reminding me of a characteristic I often see in white wines. Sweetish lemonhead/funk finish. Very nice - I should have bought a 750 of this.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Pours a clear deep golden with a thin white head. Aroma has some herbal pine and wax bean notes with lots of brett and greenery. Starts with a hint of maltiness with lots of carbonation throughout and plenty of pine and spruce flavor balanced with tart yeastiness and a dry acidic finish. A very interesting and complex brew.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 2, 2005
Poured a hazy golden yellow. Aroma is funky, dusty with notes of tart mustard. Flavor was sweet, funky and tart with a long soft bitter finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - SEP 29, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2005 Bottle 375ml. Pours an ipa colored orange with no head. Big barnyard aromas with notes of cherries and apples. Sour and acidic. Flavors of apples and must. Dry aftertaste. Thin mouth feel.
