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.

Aroma is complex with lemon, grass and sourness being amazin. Taste is soo refreshing, seriously drinkable and generally outstanding. The best beer from my 21st birthday by far.

A with all Gueuze it varies from bottle to bottle but the best is one of the world classic beers - if you like Gueuze. A very sour beer with lots of citrus notes and the usual farmyard aroma.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2008 Beautiful dark golden, a little hazy body, creamy white head, beautiful lacing; Incredible nose (as expected), very fine balance between full and fresh aspects, typical Gueuze nose but what makes this one special is a slight touch of fresh meat; very balanced body, it moves pleasantly from on element to the other, lots of very soft sparkles, very soft texture; The step to the acidy finish is very near perfect, aromas are quite full and the body is a little dry, a fine mix of acidity and aroma fades slowly but lasts very, very long. Incredible beer, very, very well made.

Exceptional Gueze. Golden, with a white head. Excellent lacing. Taste was SOUR, tart, fuity, and astringent. Dry aftertaste. Strong sour lemon taste, but this is well balanced by maltiness. Unbelievable complexity. I highly recommend this gueze. Fits style guidelines to a tee.

Bottle from 08 Night of the Funk. Aroma of sweaty socks and other funky notes. Flavor of champagny fruits with a pleasant acidity and that funk. A wonderful beer.

I freakin love lambics so this review may be biased. Pours golden amber with a bit of a haze. Strong citrus on the nose. Tart green apple, sour, bitter, so good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

subcombicio (167) - Marghera, ITALY - APR 2, 2013
Una delle migliori oude gueuze prodotte al mondo. Il gusto è equilibratissimo e l’acido va oltre ogni immaginazione di piacevolezza. Annata 2011 da 75 cl.

Gehbe (231) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours somewhat cloudy golden with a medium unstable white head. A very clean brett/lactic aroma. A clean dry taste, no excess sourness. Wonderful crispy dry palate. I love the taste and the palate but the aroma seems too clean to me, lacking some "perk".

AntiusII (33) - Bromölla, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2016
Appearance: orange cloudy color. minimal head. Aroma: Malt vinegar, stable, hay, cowdung. Taste: strong acidity! not for pussys! Palate: full body.sticky texture. fizzy carbonation. medium long acidic finish. Overall: good geuze, would never turn down this beer. especially not to fish’n’chips. Refreshing!
