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.

Awesome! Pours with a quickly dissipating white head and a golden crystal color. Aroma is very complex, with notes of lemon-acidity, apples, must and hay. Taste is sour on the sides of the tongue, bitter up front with steely apples as the backbone. Great lively mouthfeel with lingering tartness. Overall a very great beer in a very great style.

tillmac62 (422) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a touch of amber. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. Nice sour nose with a bit of vinegar. Tart apples, barnyard funk and a grassy mustiness. Light body with a lively carbonation from the middle on. The outstanding flavor profile is very intense (sour), not very complex and quite lacking in balance. This style calls for sour and this beer delivers. It begins with a sour apple flavor that is a bit tart. The middle brings a shift towards vinegar that becomes quite noticeable in the back of the throat. The finish is sharp and dry with a lingering vinegar sourness coupled with a bit of musty funk.

Amber color, with a white, medium head. Nice tart Aroma, with some barnyard touch to it. The initial sourness fades out in a mild aftertaste, that offers a combination of fruit and cereal details. Nice gueuze.

Bontus (693) - Flanders, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle, 37,5cl. Pours hazy, immediate lactic acid and horseblanket in the nose. Very "dirty" geuze, a true one. Lemon acid, lactic, great tartness and complexity. Barnyard funk. Finish is long and balanced. Excellent tongue twister.

Ysok02 (369) - MOns, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2015
Une Gueuze typée tout en puissance, avec une belle expression du Lambic, et une longue bouche acidulée. Un gueuze destinée à vieillir.
