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.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours an orange gold color with very little head that dissipates instantly. Aromas of apple cider vinegar, lemon zest, and hay. Light body with a slightly watery texture. Soft carbonation with a sour finish that really is bitterly sour at the end. Nice geuze for a hot summer day.

Hazy, amber, beer with almoust no head. Just a thin white layer. Nice bubbles rising to the top. Nose: Funk, tart notes. Apple, red berries, hay, grapefruit, stable, lemon peel, peach and apricot. Some sweetness in the nose. Taste: Wow! This is amazing! Sour, tart, green apples, rasperries, yeast, grass, floral, oak and spice. Body: Medium body with light carbonation. Very dry and bitter. Beatiful! I can feel my tounge wrickle. Very sour and refreshing. Pretty short aftertaste. This is a awesome, beatiful beer! I’m in love :)

Cloudy orange color. Old feet in the nose. Very sour taste a bit dry and cheesy in a good way. Dry and a little old taste in the aftertaste. Very nice gueuze.

SinH4 (686) - SWITZERLAND - APR 30, 2015
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.

Tried bottled. Colour is very pale with minimal head. Aroma is typical Gueuze, funky, sour, hay and citrus. Taste is the same. Large sour punch with a nice strong carbonation. Super refreshing on a hot day! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EvaCandido (33) - Padova, ITALY - APR 25, 2015
Intense fruity and traditional kriek aroma and sourness. Wild strawberry in the that aftertaste with red small berry and vanilla, from barrel, aroma. Red in colour.

Lawger (203) - SWEDEN - APR 24, 2015
No bottling date. Best before 07/08/2032. Pours a cloudy pale amber with small, white head. Lots of funky stable scents on the nose. Some tart berries, obvious brett, something rusty and metallic, and I'm afraid there's no other way of putting this, but it also smells a lot like a lavatory the day after you had some Tikka Masala. If you like a lot of funk, this should definetely tick all the boxes. The palate starts off with a big acidic kick in the face. Medium bodied. Bretty taste mid palate and a rather long finish with lingering acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fredd_an (170) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - APR 18, 2015
Grumlig ljus geuze! Kompost & jordig, bärig eller fylla i doft? Syrlig, sur upp i stjärten. Gröna äpplen. Väldigt fin! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jlruthven (583) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 18, 2015
Bottle, 2013 vintage. Pours light copper, fairly clear, soapy white head. Nose is a riot: turning lemon peel, iron, hay, oak. Something like peach or apricot in the flavor; not bracingly sour, very balanced. Borderline creamy mouthfeel. Outstanding.

BiiruBierBeer (489) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2015
Sour gueuzey smell. Taste is the same with a very nice sourness to it. Great lively medium carbonation that goes down very smooth.
