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.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle from "Completely Non-Epic Gueze Tasting ’10". Poured a hazy orange-yellow with little head. Aroma was overwhelmingly funky with wet grass, lemon and cheese. Deliciously sour with hints of orange/lemon zest, and a very dry finish. Carbonation complements the flavor wonderfully.

Hazy amber with a small off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is tart and fruity. Taste is fruity up front then tart with a dry finish
Well balanced and easy to drink.

Quite easy on the nose. Taste is very good! Very well balanced, not to tart. Light carbo. One of the best geuze I've had!

Torrefacto (698) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 3, 2015
Color cobrizo limpio, brillante y uniforme con espuma blanca ligera. Aroma mohoso del brett equilibrado con un intensa sensación ácida de manzana verde. Cuerpo medio, intenso sabor ácido y afrutado, y sensación fresca como de mananza y ciruela verde que se equilibra con una sensación final seca moderada. El resgusto es largo y afrutado.

JBPortland (968) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 2, 2015
375ml bottle (10/13 bottling) pours semi clear dark amber with a finger of head. Nose is big funky toasty oak, bretty, orange and citrus, some light stonefruit, dusty attic, some acetic notes. Taste is tart, nice acidity level, funk-forward with sweet apricot, tangerine, green apple, and dried orange notes, backed by toasted wood and dusty grain, big skunky hay notes. Finish is tart funk with some dry attic wood funk and light sweetness of dried apricot and old citrus. Solid but on the sweeter side and the nose was a bit acetic. Not the best shelf gueze.

MatthijsE (906) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle @ home. Hazy deep golden color with a thin head. Aroma of apricot, apple and sour yeast. Sour, acidic, bitter taste with some initial sweetness.

hman43 (436) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2014
It pours a golden color with a pillow head. It has a sour aroma with fruits mixed in. It has a sour taste combined with being tart that has a pucker factor in addition to flavors. There are fruit flavors with moderate carbonation. It has an extra sour kick on the palate.

Bue en bouteille. Pas mon style de bière à la base. Je l’ai trouvée courte en bouche, avec une acidité modérée.

Bue en bouteille de 37.5cl à Molenhof Restaurant & Bar Oud Postje, couleur blonde/ambrée, petite mousse, grosse effervescence, une attaque acide citronnée en début de bouche et belle continuitée sur le bois jeune et son acidité.

graziano85 (323) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 15, 2014
Nice orange color, a little hazy, with almost no head. Smell is citrus, tart, acetic, and a lot of wood notes, tannine. Taste is tart, but not so sour as I expected from one of the real Gueuze makers. Full mouthfeel, good carbonation. Really good!
