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.

Bottle @ thewolfs pre-festival tasting, Kolding.
[thank you, dedollewaitor]
Pours hazy yellow-golden with a small film head. Aroma is tart, citric and lightly woody. Fine, dry mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasingly tart, well citric and a long woody finish. Very nice, though pretty standard gueuze.

Pinball (10609) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2013
bottle from beergium.com cloudy yellow, small bubbly head.Aroma is tart and sour,has notes of vinegar, funk,, leather, glue. aroma appears pretty strong and sharp. Flavor is tart, vinegar, sweet fruity note, The beer is both very very sour and wild yeasty, and somewhat sweet at the same time, perhaps adjusted with sugar? Perhaps just a coincidence.

bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 14, 2008
375 ml bottle. Aroma is about equal funk and light stone fruit. Copper gold color with white smear for head. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. Flavor is sour fruit, yeast and wood. Finish is astringently dry. Tart isn’t in it! One of the more pleasant Geuzes I’ve enjoyed.

Bottle corked. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour yeasty aroma. Medium body with a dry texture. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium sour finish of moderated duration. This is a standout for style beer.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - 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
