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.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2005
a mes rate: very decent gueuze. earthy citrus sour and tart as you would expect. salt and vinegar finish that ends up dry and lengthy. nothing unusual but rather nice.

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Old bottle from Half Time, Poughkeepsie, NY. Hazy dark straw pour with sour fruity aroma. Tastes gueuzy, with some lemon esters and slight Brett in the finish. I have learned to enjoy gueuzes and their clones, but I don’t fault those who rate them low. They are truly "love it or hate it."

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 10, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2005 Hazy gold in color. Large Fizzy head. Funky sour aroma, straw, lemons, earth, cheese... Some sweetness to taste, but it’s replaced by a sour grapefruit flavor with tart grapes, apple, and dry grasses. Puckering Finish. Gueuze.

FrkAabenhuus (147) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 1, 2005
pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. In the beginning the taste is rather sweet, but afterwards it gets dry with notes of grapefruit. Sweet, nice and soft.

What else but a great sour tart gueuze, lemony with big citrus acidity and earthen farm aromas. I LOVE BRET.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - APR 21, 2005
Pours a hazy orange amber color, medium white head, long lasting. Full aroma, lots of barnyard, cheesy, citric, cidery notes. Assertive flavor, very acidic, mild sweetness, still plenty sour, again some apple notes. Palate was somewhat active, acidic, quite dry. This was great, and at $4.50 for the 12oz it is one of the most inexpensive lambics I’ve seen. I’ll have to stock up for this is marvelous.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2005
Pours a thin white head on a beautiful hazy golden body. The aroma is tart and dry as hell with woody and grapefruity tones and hints of cheese. The flavor is sharp, sour, tart, funky with grapefruit, wood, spontaneous fermentation and a very dry end. A nice geuze - definately not for beginners!

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Nice and stinky and very well balanced. I get mostly cheese and other funk.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 10, 2005
Golden orange colour with a big white frothy head. Aroma was nasty, barnyard like with some sourness. Nice flavour, sweet match with nice sourness. Some citrusy fruit presence and a nice sour end.
