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.

rami_pl (1474) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 20, 2016
butelka, zeszloroczne chyba. aromaty mocno dzikie, nieco kiszonej kapusty czy tam ogorkow, nieco owocow typowo lambikowych. w smaku wytrawne, mocno kwasne cytrynowo.... sumarycznie dosc intensywne, ale takie... chamskie w tej swojej lambiowatosci w odbiorze. moze i to nie zarzut, ale po mojemu odstaje in minus troszke od pozostalych podstawowych wersji z okolicznych lambikarni

joeiznogood (10) - DENMARK - MAY 10, 2016
Pour: Clear, light orange, high lumpy foam, soapy bubbles Smell: barnyard, fruit, musty, hay, fresh, sour apple, slight cheese Initial taste: aggressive mouthfeel, tart, bitter After airing - First: tart, vinegar, carbonation dominates; mids: sour apple, citrus; after: barnyard, malt, bitterness Verdict: Aggressive initial mouthfeel when put into mouth, but very balanced thereafter. Developed really well, after about 45 minutes the taste was very well balanced and much of the aggressiveness (maybe due to the carbonation having fallen quite a bit) and bitterness had dissipated.
