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.

pours slightly hazy golden yellow with no head and basically no carbonation. Other reviews mention average carbonation, so I wonder if my bottle just was not properly sealed. The aroma is tart and funky, reminding me of kombucha, sour apples, some hints of the aging. The flavor is very good in spite of this bottle being mostly flat. It is very sour and strong, with pear and citrus and lemon qualities, and the close is bright and pungent. I liked this.

czar (9250) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
pours almost clear golden orange with a frothy and creamy eggshell white head offering good retention and lacing. tart apricots, pickled clementines, light to medium acidity - powdery citric acid with soft acetic edge, never overwhelming; definitely a funky one, golden if not very lightly caramelized fruitiness, two scoops of salt, lime zest. bright to moderate carbonation, light body - oily; dry, tart and woody-citrusy finish. zesty/vibrant lemony notes, more than enought funk,good drinkability - much enjoyed this sunday winter quencher.

Wood, wine and sourness in aroma. Same elements in the taste with addition of Brett. Very nice

Poured a mostly clear golden orange with minimal head and lacing. Aroma of wood and tart apples. Taste is moderately sour with lemon and apples, wood and straw. Finishes with a mouth watering tartness. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Nice moderate level of tartness that encourages another drink but doesn’t completely overwhelm the other flavors.

4.2
Bule (2228) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
750ml bottled Nov 2015. Pours a pale brown color with a little froth on top. Mild carbonation. Some nice gueuze bitumen flavor. But the flavor dies quickly leaving it a little watery.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2017 Wow. Funky indeed. Flat. Slightly flowery. Bubbly water. Aftertaste is helping. Sweet. Boring. Bread. Hnngh.

3.5
Unde (1114) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Clear golden yellow beer which looks like whisky with no head at all. Aroma has green apples which are sour, hint of barnyard. Taste is sour with green apples and slight yeast but too mellow for me Nothing stands out here. Medium body and high carbonation. Sadly nothing stands out here.
