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.

Quack-Duck (9368) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2016
bottle, thanks to kappldav123! Hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Tart and quite sour start with a vinegary touch. Shy barnyard flavours tune in, woody-dusty hops in the finish.

Olo13 (111) - POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Pachnie kombinacją mokrego konia i odgrzebanego po 10 latach z piwnicy skrzanego buta, w smaku bije kwasem, to chyba jest ok ;) W smaku podobnie. Generalnie mocne w każdą stronę.

ksiwzos (136) - GREECE - DEC 12, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2016 Light amber color with short white head that dissipates. Smell of horse manure, mold, strawberry, berries, citrus, salinitylactic acid, soap, burnt plastic overtones. Taste is salty, tart, light sweet, earthy-soil notes, citrus, acidity is quite strong. Aftertaste is tart with mainly soap and lemon notes. Low carbonation, medium body. A solid and complex brew but Ive tried better from Hanssen...

yourilevesque (1651) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2016
Une gueuze qui na jouit daucun traitement particulier, qui nest pas rare, qui nest pas cher et aucunement pris. Pourtant une gueuze absolument dlectable! La robe est fonce, trouble, et aucunement mousseuse. Janticipe une barrique qui a donn tout ce quelle avait au liquide. Armes terreux, fruits et poussireux souhait, le tout bien balanc et complexe. Dominantes boise et vanille en bouche allge par une douce effervescence. Corps ample pour le style, longue en bouche et charge de saveurs issues dune flore bactrienne mature et colore. Une grand plaisir dguster!

dysenteri (228) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle from SB. Clear yellow, white head. BF in 2034. Lovely funky, apricot, citrusy, barn, funk aroma. Sour tart taste, superdry with hints of elderflower. Demanding and complex geuze, took a while for me to like this beer but now its awesome.

ComradeK (1181) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a small white head, which fades rather quickly, without leaving much lacing. Good sourness, leathery funk and some cut grass and cranberry hints in the aroma. Strongly sour up front, with tart citric notes. A touch of tannin and leathery funkiness in the mid-palate, tart berry notes coming through to the finish. There is a drying, leathery aftertaste. A nice gueuze.
