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.

brokensail (10795) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 22, 2010
A: The usual cloudy, sparkling, yellow-gold liquid with a bit of white foam on top that dissipates somewhat quickly. S: You can tell this one is going to be great just from the nose. Tart lemon and lactic acid, along with a nice musty and earthy quality. T: This one starts off with a tongue buckling sourness to it. Wonderful lemon and green apple flavors, in terms of the fruit. There is a slight bit of oak and a dry funkiness. M: Very effervescent and medium in body with that wonderful dryness. D: Thereís only so much of this stuff you can drink before it burns a hole in your stomach, but even then, Iíd probably keep drinking it. One of the better Gueuzes Iíve had, and at the price, you canít beat it.

Pinball (10773) - 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.
