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 shared with Savvy1982... Thanks Kyle! Pours a hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is complex and sour wioth earthy and soapy notes. Very nice acidic and musty flavor. Nice mouth feel. Nice beer... Now the heart burn kicks in and ends our gueuze tasting early. But the best of the lot we tried back to back.

Aroma of white wine, lemon, tart, horse blanket, bubble gum. Appears darker gold light fluffy white ring, spotty lacing. Taste is tart, sour lemon lime. Nice sour, velvety mouthfeel. This seems like my favorite Oude gueuze...

Orange color with beautiful head. Aroma of funk, hay, citrus, a bit cheesy, very Gueuze like, but not "magic" like some Gueuze are. Taste is fruity-sour, lemony, apples, hay, dry acidic finish. Carbonation is not too aggressive. A rather mellow Oude Gueuze. Not bad, but there?s better.

A wonderfully filthy Gueuze, I must say. Pours a cloudy yellow that gets cloudier with each pour. There is visibly effervescent carbonation. The aroma extends feet away from the glass. Sour yeasty funk, horse blanket, lemon zest, wood and cheese assult the nose. Brutally tart and sour flavour that is devoid of any recognizable malt sweetness. Notes of wood and wet leather accompany the tart, acidic fruit flavours. The balance of bright, new lambic flavours and old musty, woody lambic is noticeable. The mouthfeel tingly with a medium body and a finish that is not as dry as other gueuzes.

Bottle: hazy orange with thin white head. Aroma is sweaty sock funky with a strong tart nose. Flavor rings in with a mouth puckering cherry tartness, add a dash of lemon, some barnyard funk, and a little over ripe soft cheese. Overall, I found the beer interesting, but lacking without some sweetness.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2008
Bottle 37,5 cl. A light fruity aroma. Rich flavour with notes of fruits - especially sour grape - and with a dry and buttery finish. The colour is deep moisty yellow with a clear white head. A very drinkable gueuze

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Bottle from Oct 2005 tasting - dont know vintage. Dark orange and hazy pour. Big aroma of barny funk and tart apple. More tart apple cidery and light malt flavors. Good dose of that funk and some spices. A bit acidic, and very drinkable.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 7, 2009
750ml bottle at Novare Res. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a vanishing white head. Aroma of funk, yogurt, and cheese. Flavor is tart, sour, with a note of yogurt/cheese like flavor. Extemely acidic even by lambic standards. Gave me a sore stomach, i enjoyed it a lot, but the aftermath kind of ruined it.

Smells sour. Definitely tastes sour and a lot watered down. Not one I would want to try again.

750ml Bottle from Knightly. Funky, Grapes, Floral, Citrus, very barnyard. Not quite as sour as I would like but a very enjoyable Gueuze.
