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.

Pours straw yellow with a big white head that dissapates quickly. Very funky barnyard, dank, vinigary aroma. At first smell I wasn’t too sure about this one, but it grew on me. I was a bit worried about tasting it, since I know Gueuze can be a handful, but really enjoyed the taste. A perfect sour/tart bite with some fruits in there as well. I was pleasently suprised!

Helder geel bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is zuur en droog met verrassend sporen van kaas en zuur fruit, tevens iets van rook.

neongolden (846) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2015
(375ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours hazed pale orange short lived active bubbles and no head. Aroma on the sour side for the style but lactic, with lemon juice and fresh cheese. Quite oaky quality that is a touch leathery, with earth and hay barnyard and an almost nutty note, funk and wood blending. A little white grape, not too fruity. On the palate, moderate lactic sourness with lemon and cottage cheese/yoghurt, white grape on the edge of vinegar. Lemon peel/wet hay hop bitterness from the middle on, some prominent must and oak. Bretty funk does build in the finish but more restrained than nose. Aftertaste is quite dry, lightly tart with the softest of bitter notes. Medium oily body with average carb. A nice lactic gueuze, but quite balanced. Not mind blowing but refreshing and very drinkable.

Bottle at home - an attempt to see if the wife would like it... Not so much. That being said, this is a really nice beer! Good funk and sour notes. Easy to enjoy!

Pour hazy light orange, with a small n’ slightly creamy white head. Aroma has slight funk, plenty of citrus, green apples, slight barnyard. The taste is pretty darn sour, but has some nice fruity sweetness to it as well. Medium bodied, with a lively carbonation. Pretty darn refreshing and thirst cleansing. Thanks a bunch to Hoprider for sharing.

2012 Pours yellow with a white head. Smells of sweat, funky, peachy, tarte, acidic. Taste is on the mellow side with some funky bites and a lemony finish.

Very tasty Gueze, helped make up my mind on the whether or not this is a style for me or not. I now think it is. My first experience with cantillion was terrible, and i now believe it was a bad bottle, it was especially hard to tell after reading other ratings where they described the beer as near exact to what i was tasting, without being good. But this beer was definitly fantastic. Nice apple/fruit aroma and taste. Sour to a near perfect point, and actually funky. Wasnt sure what that meant until I was fully indulged in this brew. Same thing goes for cobwebs, basement, barnyard, and leather all notes previously mentioned that nearly turned me off to this beer. But actually its all there and makes for a hell of a beer. Definitly a style i will look foward to trying more of in the future

I sort of settled with this gueze when the barkeep let me know the Cantillon was out of stock, but I’m glad I did. Very abrupt tartness, but actually doesn’t fry your saliva glands the way some others may. This had a definite lemony zing that really settled into the soft fruitiness of the malt, while keeping a slightly chalky mouthfeel that balanced everything out rather nicely. It took me the better part of an hour to sip this one down but it was worth it.

This is my first gueuze so I’m not speaking from experience. Definite sour aroma and really didn’t get much else. Beautiful crystal clear golden yellow with a very thin but persistent white lacing. Sour and earthy with tanned leather notes. A woodsy flavor in the background and in the aftertaste. Very interesting and not overpowering, and also quite refreshing.
