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.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
375ml bottle shared by MartinT. Bottle was about 6-7 years old.
Appearance : Hazy pale yellow with a medium head.
Aroma : Acidic and a bit lactic. Nice tartness, nice green apples and white grapes. Light notes of wet wood.
Taste : Nice sourness and tartness. A bit lactic and quite acidic. A bit woody. Finish is quite acidic. Dry and woody finish.
Overall : Very complex nose and taste. Maybe a bit more complex than the Drie Fonteinen Gueuze. Nice wood and fruity notes. Nice tartness. Still a bit too acidic for my taste. I prefer Drie Fonteinen and Girardin. Far less drinkable than the others.

Mora2000 (5924) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottled January 2013. Clear orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some cheesy funk as well as some barnyard notes and biscuit malt. The flavor is not as funky as the aroma led me to believe it would be, but it is still very nice. I get some cherry notes as well as some light barnyard funk, a little bit of brett and some light tartness. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very nice gueuze.

MichaelAwesome (5334) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2014
Ein feines Geuze, das die gewöhnlichen Aromen durchaus anbietet und mit etwas Getreide und Hefe nur so spielt. Angenehm ist die milde Säure, die hier wirklich moderat eingesetzt wird. Jedoch sind die Aromen nicht bis zum letzten durchgepeitscht, daher Qualität und Liebe ja, grandiose Klasse nein.
