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.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle from Somerville Super Saver. The grapefruity citrus sourness of this beer mixes with a rather oaky woody almost dusty flavor. There are several layers to the sour tones which seem to float above each other. The dryness is smooth and it makes the acid content tolerable.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle. Orange golden color and a nice foamy white head. Green apple and white wine aroma. Acidic with a green apple taste. Not bad, my best Geuze so far. Bière de couleur orange doré avec un bon collet mousseux. Odeur de pomme verte et de vin blanc. Au goût, elle est acide mais, moin que la kriek et elle goute les pommes vertes. Pas mauvaise, ma meilleur Geuze jusqu’à maintenant.

harrisoni (15043) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2006
Bottle from Utobeer, I think. I keptthis for ages waiting for the right moment. I love gueuze but know that it will normally fall into the 3.8-4.2 range for me as the sourness makes it too extreme for me. Beautiful amber colour, with thin ring of off white head. Sour funky aroma. Really funky actualy. Sharp in mouth. Lemon juice and more funkiness in mouth. Sharp funky lemon finish. Pretty extreme to be honest, very acidic. I prefer Girardin and Boon to this. Still a lovely example of this limited beer style.

GregClow (2976) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2006
Bottle sample at Union Beer Trade Tasting, NYC. Clear golden colour, quite still. Aroma is medicinal, funky, a bit woody. Flavour is quite citric and tart, but it’s lacking some of the complexity that I hope for in a good gueuze. Certainly nothing to sneeze at, but still a little disappointing.

Theis (14466) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2006
Bottle at home - shared with Mette. Unclear amber - white head. Wood grape, sweet, sour....lovely gueuze, but a rather smoot and "creamy" feeling compaired io other gueuzes i have tasted.

Svesse (6901) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2006
(Bottle) Colour is pale amber with a big, frothy, white head, disappearing after a while. Surprisingly clear. Nose is wineous and acidic with notes of citrus, grapefruit, green apples, stable, sweaty horse and hints of vinegar and even some smoke. Musty, acidic taste with grapefruit, apricots, barn yard, horse blanket. Harsh but very well balanced. Absolutely magnificent, one of the best gueuzes I’ve tried.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Another great gueuze. sour and funky in aroma, flavor, and palate. Very citrusy--lemon, slight orange, tangerine. yummy. acidic, but not overly so. yummy and refreshing after 2 sets of tennis. victory!!!
