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.

kapusil (1265) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2016
0.75l bottle. Clear golden body, thin white head. Huge barnyard notes in the aroma escorted by vinegar, lemon zest, salt and earth. Taste of cheese, salt, vinegar, dark sugar and lemon zest. Very sour and the finish is quite bitter (not hoppy, more like when you are chewing on lemon peel). Almost totally flat. Awesome gueuze.

mgajdaczewa (1853) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 1, 2016
W aromacie dzikutki jak należy, nieco skrzany, siano, niewielka owocowość. W smaku podobnie, przeważa czysta dzikość, lekko owocowa kontra, poziom kwaśności niski jak na styl, pije się bardzo lekko i gładko. Bardzo dobry, ale nie porywający.

rdb84 (580) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2016
75cl. Pours a slightly hazy golden apricot orange with small head and nice carbonation. Aroma: sweet Geuze sourness and tartness, strong malt character, some lime and maybe even cilantro, light yoghurt note. Taste: Very drinkable Geuze with medium tartness, not as acidic as some of the other brands. Mouthfeel, although still very much like a Geuze, is almost doughy. Has a definite sweet touch. In development, some lime and lemon, malts, cactus. Light dry mouthfeel with again some sweet, malty notes.

theisti (3980) - Kansas, USA - SEP 11, 2016
375ml corked and caged bottle purchased at the Wine and Cheese Place in Clayton, Missouri. The pour is a hazed orange golden with a foamy one inch white head the falls with big bubbles. The aroma is lemon citrus funk, barnyard, and hay all fully integrated and nicely layered. The taste is clean citrus floral at first, moving to lemon tartness and closing with the funk and leather. Nice flavor transitions. The palate is light to medium bodied, with fine active carbonation and a clean dry finish with funk pleasantly lingering.

rodenbach99 (4368) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Style et rsum: Oude gueuze de grande qualit.
Comment: Bouteille de 37,5cl meilleure avant 07/08/2034.
Description: Une gueuze dore fonce qui ne mousse pas vraiment. Un nez agrable aigre et lgrement vinaigr. La bouche est superbe, ronde (pour une gueuze) mais pas sucre, longue, acide et lgrement acidule. Jadore. Bien content de reboire cette bire que jai eu la chance de boire en 1994 quand le nom Hanssens napparaissait que sur le bouchon de lige.
Note: 8+/10

Couleur dore-orange, forte mousse blanche. Nez typique aigre acidul, avec citron vert et vieux fut. Gout bien amere acide, vieux citron, bois, pomme verte, sec. Nickel mais pas assez complexe
