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] Pours hazy gold with a huge whitish head. Aroma is initially straight brett, with a little bit of sour apple, and a whole bunch of barnyard funk. Flavor is quite sour and tart, with the granny smith apple flavor coming through. Tons of yeasty funk, and a bit of earth and oak contribute to the awesome flavor of this beer.

Moravius (905) - Beijing, CHINA - OCT 7, 2014
Flasche (75 cl) vom Hopduvel, Gent, anderthalb Jahre im Keller gelagert. - Orangegelb, trüb; grobporiger Schaum. - In der Nase die typische, leicht kellerig-modrige und scharf säuerliche Gueuze-Note, wie trockener Apfelwein mit einem Hauch Pferdemist. - Antrunk krachtrocken sauer mit bitterer Grapefruit, Zitronenschale und der muffigen Pferdedeckennote. Durchschnittlich rezent, schlank, beinahe schmerzhaft trocken im Mund. Im Abgang extrem muffig herb, holzig trocken und immer noch so sauer, daß es einen schüttelt. - Fast ungenießbar, wüßte man nicht, daß es sich hier um eine berühmte Gueuze handelt - und wer wollte sich da schon als Banause outen? Andere hier bewerten diese Gueuze als „nicht zu aufdringlich-sauer“, aber ich fand sie noch extremer, saurer und holziger als alle bisher verkosteten. Zweifellos ein außerordentliches Bier, aber auch extrem gewöhnungsbedürftig.

KUEric (904) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
A tart fruity flavor but a little more sour and standard beer finish than I was expecting. It was very good, but I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not sure I know the difference between average, good and great.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Flaska 75 cl troligen 4 år (bf 2030). Ruggigt väder i stugan. Delar med Bengan och Isabel. Doften påminner om cantillons bryggeri. (Aldrig besökt Hanssen ännu). Funk, svag ättika, lite spannmål, ost och grapefrukt. Smaken är oerhört balanserad och härlig även om första klunken var skarp i syran. Angenäm ostlig beska. Underskattad bärs. Bara att köpa mer av!!! Rerate: samma poäng. Tung härlig funkbas som hänger i ett bra tag. Tydlig syra och väldigt torr men ingen magsaft etter ättika. Drar parallellt mot De Cam och den här är mer komplex och smaken hänger i länge.

neongolden (882) - 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.

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!

MPA (866) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle. Aroma of tart apples, lemon, basement and mold. Flavour is quite tart with lots of grape notes and a little apple sweetness as well. Very nice.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle @ Tröls. High in acidity, with loads of citrus, lime and green apples and a bunch of malty/yeasty aromas as well like hay, wheat and stables.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2004
The flavour is tart and bitter, especially in finish. Rather sour in the middle. Rather easy and sweet honey-like aftertaste. The palate is dominated by a round sourness. Palate of vinegar.

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.
