3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
37.5 cL bottle, trade with BelJohansen. Pours hazy orange with a slowly diminishing creamy white head. Orange and acidic dry wooden aroma. Flavour is solid acidic to citric with a nice orange fruity note. Has a distinct wooden note I only sensed during the first sip. The citric flavour makes me shiver. Bone dry yet fruity. Thirst quencing - nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2005 (Bottle 37,5 cl) As "Hanssens Gueuze" at 5% ABV. I remember when I first found this years ago in the drink market "De Cagny Brothers" in Essen. In a wooden box in a corner I found a few crown corked bottles with no labels or anything. But a large swarm of fruit flies were buzzing around the cork which was leaking slightly. Not the most hygienic or well-presented beer...
Orangey golden with very little head. Vinegary, sour, citrusy nose. Very tart but complex flavours of....horseblanket? Well, to be honest I haven’t really smelled a horseblanket for several years. Earthy notes and a long sour palate. A taste-bud killer indeed. 030498
(Bottle 37,5 cl) As "Hanssens Oude Gueuze". Very orangey golden with a small, discreet head. a smell of fruits in the early stages of rot. Very complex gueuze and actually quite drinkable. Hasn’t got the very sharp, vinegary edge as other traditionals in the style. 120700

Bottled. Hazy pale amber, small head. Striking barnyard aroma. Citric with rounded maltiness and a superb light, sparkling mouthfeel. Acidic with concetrated berries dominating a complex flavour profile. An unbelievably fantastic beer, at least in the shape this bottle was in.

7th March 2010. Hazy amber - gold beer, thin white head. Sourish nose. Very sour and dry. Some vinegar and a dash of lemon. Well on the wrong side of too sour for me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrusy, woody aroma, really strong. Sour, vinegar taste, dry; some fruit flavours. Bitter-sour palate. Balanced, not oustanding, ’pure’ gueuze.
