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.

750ml bottle from K&L. Pours a bright but slightly hazy golden color with a nice lacey one finger white head. Great aroma, big and funky with pale malt notes, quite a bit of barnyard. Pretty nice gueuze flavor, nice pale malt base with big barnyard funk and average sourness. Just a hint of sweetness to it. Nice mouthfeel, medium bodied and very tingly with high carbonation. A good gueuze overall, and the best I’ve had from Hanssens.

Hazy orange, almost looks like a hefeweizen. Sour in the nose, flavor is reminiscent of a barnyard with a refreshing sourness. Funky and acidic....very acidic. An excellent gueuze.

dumontn (529) - CHICAGO, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Appearance is dark gold, clear, little head. Aroma is sour hay, green apple, and lemon. Taste is quite sour with funky hay and apple notes. Body is medium, sticky, highly carbonated, and somehow a dry finish. Overall, this is middle of the road as far as lambics go, I’ve had better and I’ve had worse but I have a definite soft spot for this style.

Gold, white vanishing head. Aroma is sour, sewage, and funk. Body is very light, crisp, and carbonated. Flavor is very lactic and sour, no hop bitterness, slight apple. tasted side-by-side with Oud-Beersel and Cantillon Guezes. All three had the same appearance, this one had more funky/sewage notes, less fruity notes in the aroma, and less bitterness in the flavor, although it was amazing how similar they tasted.

Strykzone (4930) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. No head on this one and the beer is hazy, dingy and golden. Flavors are nice fruit, yeast, barnyard funk, and light vinegar. This was nice.

Bottle at Den Dyver Brugge. Food Pairing: Squid, sardines, croutons of smoked eel. Zucchini and millefeuille. Ambergold color with immediately disappearing head. Aroma is sour but the taste was not as sour as expected. Fizzy feeling.

The aroma is sour, farmhouse. The appearance is hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, sour, lemon. The finish is lemon, sour, puckering. Some farmhouse elements. Nice.
