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.

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.

SkillsFactory (196) - ITALY - AUG 25, 2015
Dorata leggermente pallida, velata, schiuma bianca poco persistente, croccante, che lascia però un velo. Aroma acetico, acido e leggermente lattico, mela verde, sudore equino, pungente. Al palato acida e acetica, astringente, ricorda una susina acerba; Un po' "legnosa" lascia una bella coda aspra. Retrolfatto sempre di frutta acerba. Corpo medio, medio-leggero, non molto carbonata, abbastanza beverina e rinfrescante.

Holmen1 (3641) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2015
Fra flaske på Mi2 Cardinal aug-15: en superfrisk, kompleks og samtidig mild gueuze med massevis av citron, druer, brett (og en knivsodd salt?) og jordnære toner. Må være perfekt til søte og fete desserter, i tillegg til at den er en nytelse i seg selv. Full ganeservice.

Hanssens Oude Gueuze ’15 vintage Pours a glowing, golden color with a bubbly, immediately vanishing white head, which leaves back tiny bubbles at the edge of the glass, wrapped up by fluffy lacing. On the nose, the beer offers well pronounced apple peel, accompanied by a distinct funkiness and old leather. Tomato bush blends into earthy, dusty malts, accompanied by even more dried garden herbs, leading to a very organcic, leafy impression, coated up by moldy funk. Tree bark becomes visible amongst this aroma profile, lending the beer additional earthiness, creating a very versatile, intriguing nose. Has a lower carbonation with an almost biting lemon sourness, while finishing more on soft mineralic stone qualities with a very pleasant mouthfeel after the initial punch. Begins with an aqueous note, joined by intense, but fruity, lemon, balanced by stale, dusty earth defined malts. Lemon stampedes over the tongue in an uncomprimising fashion, clashing at the back end of the palate and dissipates, while leaving back a trail of juicy lime pulp, very earthy, old rock sugar and forest earth. The taste remains focused on the multifaceted lemon, which also lends a nice dryness to the finish, softened by a mineralic aqueous note and a vinegar sourness. Overall a very tart, fruit focussed Gueuze, while its sourness seems to evolve completely from the fruits, as it isn’t overpowering any of the other flavors, but adds to their complexity, and therefore remains its natural appearance.

Bacchus66 (49) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2015
From corked/caged bottle. Pours light amber with the slightest bit of haze. Full frothy head, decent retention. Lots going on here, the nose is a wonderful combination of old musty basement, bread and apples. Flavors range from sour and tart to tangerine, peach, orange rind. Every swallow tastes a little differently. Could probably drink this all day. Wonderful brew.
