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.

From green 37.5 ml bottle, pours bubbly and straw-colored. Aroma of durian fruit with flavor of fermented soy beans, rotten apples and limbuger cheese. Finish is green apple and kimchi. Startling style.

750ml bottle at Novare Res. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a vanishing white head. Aroma of funk, yogurt, and cheese. Flavor is tart, sour, with a note of yogurt/cheese like flavor. Extemely acidic even by lambic standards. Gave me a sore stomach, i enjoyed it a lot, but the aftermath kind of ruined it.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2009
(Big bottle from Pelgrim) Aroma of old cheese. No head but troubled golden color. Really nice raw geuze taste with a refined sour and bitter palate. Overall a nice geuze, but nothing all too special at that.

j12601 (9548) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours an opaque orange with a medium white head that fades down quickly. Light lacing, and little bits of sediment in the glass. Piles of wine cork funk, acid, and hay. Medium bodied and sour from the start hitting the front of the tongue sharply before moving to the sides of the mouth with a nice puckering sourness. Nice crisp acid. Finishes tart and acidic, but very earthy and funky.

Much better than the Oude Kriek, I must say. Still quite tart, but not as overwhelmingly so as the other. I was impressed by the full flavor of this beer, very satisfying. Excellent with dessert.

Very smooth geuze, flavor is sour but has somewhat of a well-water taste. Other than that, a great beer.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2004 very little head on this murky orange monster..filling the air with cheesy foot fungus among us..onslaught of sourness followed by some sweetness surrounded by sweat and barnyard toe cheese..pretty flat..not as good as the beersel gueuze I had last night but..oh well Re-rate: Much better experience.

SLightly hazy orange body with some red but more orange than red. Sour vinegar barnyard aroma. Smells quite strong. The flavor is very nice, not nearly as overpowering as other Gueuzes. Fruity up front then a pleasant sour ending. Fizzy med-ligth body. (Poured from a 1.5L magnum of unknown vintage. Shared with many great RateBeerians)

Bottled @ ’t Brugs Beertje: Light amber coloured. Unclear. Off white dense head. Lasting. Earht, sourness and some acidic notes in the aroma. Flavour not as vivid as the aroma, but still quite delicious. Sourness, some light sweetness and some tarty and earthy flavours that pass into a fruity aftertaste. Quite good without beeing ostentatious.

Bottled. Best before 07/08/2020. Bottled opened with a very pleasing champagne pop and nice smoke. Pours an orange colour and later turned hazy after the yeast poured in. Aroma of sweaty socks, pearskin, and general sourness. The taste is very harsh and challenging at first like pickling vinegar and very sour lemons. It then mellows out into a clean crisp fruity (but again) sour drink. The overriding impression is of sucking on lemons though which is not the easiest thing in the World to do.
