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.

graziano85 (321) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 15, 2014
Nice orange color, a little hazy, with almost no head. Smell is citrus, tart, acetic, and a lot of wood notes, tannine. Taste is tart, but not so sour as I expected from one of the real Gueuze makers. Full mouthfeel, good carbonation. Really good!

superspak (2828) - Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2014
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 10/2013. Pours slightly hazy deep golden color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, white vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big sour lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, white vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, green apple, white grape, vinegar, hay, straw, grass, oak, leather, pepper, musty funk, wheat, and oak/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately acidic mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding gueuze style! All around awesome complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, oak, and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink with the balanced acidity. A highly enjoyable offering.
