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.

fiulijn (18103) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2001
Citrusy, woody aroma, really strong. Sour, vinegar taste, dry; some fruit flavours. Bitter-sour palate. Balanced, not oustanding, ’pure’ gueuze.

rlgk (16926) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2004
Pale, not much head. Fresh yeasty sourish aroma with grapefruit. Grapefruit in the flavor as well, sourish and sour. Good body and a classy geuze even if I still have to learn alittle about this kind of beer...

harrisoni (16728) - 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.

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 14, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2008 Bottled, 37.5cl chamgagne-cork. Unclear, orange beer with some clouds and a nice white head. The nose is barnyard, apple, fruit, yeast, cellar and quite sour. Nice flavor with yeast, cellar, citrus and green apples. Quite astringent and fizzy in the mouth, with a long sour finish. Really lovely after 5 Swedish swills. Palate-cleaning. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. (060824)

Bottle, 37.5cl corked. A hazy, orange beer with a white head. Horse blanket, some wheat and citrus in the aroma. The flavor is much the same, but the citrus and horse blanket are more evident than the wheat. Astringent, tart and citrusy. Plain lovely, more-ish and refreshing. (080926)

Koelschtrinker (15819) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 14, 2011
Saures, tonangebendes Aroma, dabei fruchtig-spritzig, der saure Ton bleibt bestehen. Es wirkt sehr abgerundet und wird noch saurer, daneben etwas würzig. Komplexes, aber ausgewogenes Bier. Test vom 30.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,13,12,13,8,13 - 12,40
