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.

A nice golden color with a moderate amount of carbonation. Started of clear, but grew cloudy from the sediment. Yummy yummy sediment. Aroma had a heavy barnyard note to it, nice esters and some almost doughy notes. Flavor seemed to be more tart than anything else, there was a subtle sweetness and some almost earthy notes. Carbonation was present on the palate, but not enough to be too gassy. Beer had a good mouth feel.

Bottle. Cloudy orange pour with a 1 finger foamy that fades to a very thin ring. Great funky aroma of musty oak, lemon peel, apple, and light cheese. Taste solid. Pretty funky, lots of wet oak, some juicy lemon, light cardboard. Light to moderate sourness. Kinda tart in the finish but it’s not dry enough. Solid gueuze but not sure how often I’ll go back.

0.375 bottle. Pours a hazy golden barely producing a small white top. Nice aroma of stables, dry hay and a semi tart pungency. Taste is mellow sour with hints of pale malts. Fairly low co2 leves compared to other gueuzes I’ve had. Still a nice lambic.

Acidic, sour, funky yeastiness, really tart and lovely. Golden colour, no head. Acidic, but not that tart for the style, mid-sweet and fruity, refined, but understated. Medium body, soft carbonation, tart finish. Enjoyable, but would’ve liked more acidity.

Bottle @ home. Pours a ahzy orange liquid with a fizzy short lived head. Aroma is nicely balanced with funk and brett, red apples, mango, lemon, hay, oak, vanilla. Moderately sour but smooth taste with great durability. Flavors of mango, grape, red apples, lemon zest, hay, brett and oak. Acidic and lemon sour finish at medium level. Lingering brett, vanilla and mango in aftertaste. Really nice balance overall.
