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.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Hazy orangish amber body with a small head. Aroma is barnyard, tart apples, some other fruits. Not as tart or complex as Cantillon’s, but still enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (11678) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Bottle corked. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour yeasty aroma. Medium body with a dry texture. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium sour finish of moderated duration. This is a standout for style beer.

Floback (539) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2007
Courtesy Knightly Spirits. Pours a dark and murky orange color with an amber backdrop. A half inch of off-white head has strong retention. Good lacing. Nose is large sour yeast and strong notes of crisp green apple. Enormous bite of vinegar-esque sourness with a hint of wood and more sour apple. High carbonation is displayed on the palate and by fierce jet-streams that rocket upward to the head. Huge, cloying body. This is the lowest rating I’ve ever given a gueuze, due to the slightly over-powering vinegar notes. Not the best I’ve had, but still good.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle. Aroma was quite pungent. Very sour and musty. Infection and beef bullion. Poured a murky gold/amber with a thin white head. Quite tart and sour on the palate with a hint of underlying lemon/lime sweetness on the finish. Beef broth with hints of sour cheese. Medium bodied. Quite creamy with sharp carbonation.

Bottle. Unclear light to medium yellow orange color with a small, virtually none, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy, sour, acidic, wood, grapefruit. Flavor is moderate acidic and sour with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is flat. (230907)

hopdog (9588) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2007
750 corked bottle. Poured a medium golden color with a small sized head. Aromas of citrus fruits, cork, funky, and yeast. Tastes follow suit.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Vastly underappreciated. Wonderfully tart, with some great acidity, what I like to call pucker power. Lightly fruity, with some sour grapes, and apple skins, which leads into a bit of vinous cidery qualities. It has that barnyard funk throughout, and is really quite enjoyable if you are into all things sour.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle. Heavy sourness up front with light fruit notes, peaches in particular. Invigorating funk. Cloudy copper-amber with a thin patchy head. Very strong lemon acidity. Not much depth but very nice even if the palate is a bit harsh.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 14, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours a translucent yellow with a small white head...aroma is bold, wood esters, dry funk, hidden dry fruit...flavour is also bold, puckery..some of these sours are getting pretty tiresome...a good beer, but isn’t bringing anything new to the table and isn’t worth the price...

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2009
Pours golden orange with a non-existent head. Aromas of tart cider apples, citrus and leather must are present with some earthy grain as well. Palate is light and highly carbonated with a heap of leather must before intense, tart acidity takes charge to maintain the dry profile. Finishes with lingering, tart acidity.
