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.

One of the best I have had can drink year round. Pour is amber with a cloudy haze that floats in the glass. Small white head that sticks to your glass. Aroma is malty and sour. Full of fruit flavors like lemon,lime and grapefruit. Not over sour but if you don’t like sour maybe a little much.

Lee at the Brick Store gave this to Westmeister in celebration of his birthday. I was lucky enough to get half the bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with white head and a wonderful lemony scent. The sour flavor stays on your tongue well after the gulp has been swallowed. Supercharged carbonation which fits the style well. Bottle - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

Pours hazy orange with a lacy medium head. Arom is...mmmm....gueze. Big lemon drop note with a fair helping of sour funk and a slight burlap note. Flavor is tart lemon, sour grapes, dusty cobwebs, a bit of earth, some burlap, wood, and a lemon drop aftertaste. Exactly what I wanted from this one, no surprises. A classic example of the style, which I admittedly like very much..

Amber beer with a small but stable white head. Very nice complex aroma, sour but still mild lambic. Full body, very complex sour, but mild, flavour. Nice balanced gueze. Very nice beer. (Corked Bottle 75cl)

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...

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.

pours a very light orange color with decent carbonation and a nice white head. initial aroma a little funky, bold, sour. After the initial whiff, still sour, with a little fruity smell, possibly pear. Initial taste. woah, sour. Sweet and sour, like a sour patch kid or something of the sort. pear.

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.
