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.

alteregoo (1193) - POLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Barwa złota, opalizująca. Aromat winogronowo cytrynowy, są oczywiście nuty skry, starego drewna i białego wina. W smaku mocno kwaśne, cytrynowe, ze sporą ilością tanin od beczki, lekką dzikością i posmakiem kociej kuwety. Spod tej kwaśności majaczy też gronowa słodycz i pestkowa cierpkość... Goryczki brak. Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, lekko szczypiące. Szorstkie i rześkie w odbiorze.
Specyficzne, ewidentnie kwaśne, z nieco nieprzyjemnym posmakiem, ale za to bardzo orzeźwiające i wyraziste Gueuze... No cż, ma to swj urok :)

adasko (2100) - Poznan, POLAND - AUG 20, 2016
Deep golden color, almost 100% clear. One finger white head, surprigsinly persistant. Beautiful carbonation is constantly flowing up. Awesome sour and tart aroma with notes of lemon and lime juice. In the back also some wooden-like notes. Taste amazing. Sour, tart, with a lot of barrel, wild, sulfor flavours. Ridiculously drinkable, super refreshing, highly carbonated. Great beer!

Marko (5302) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 19, 2016
Enormous thanks heavy! Shared with him & others. Almost clear, slightly hazy golden body with a tiny white head with medium retention. Lovely, complex lambic aroma, fruity notes, hay, dry pungent perfumey notes, apple core, some burnt grain. Not much different in the taste, yeah, with a good, but far from excessive sour base, but with some sweetish overtones or at least feelings, somewhat creamy, blueberry & apple hints here and there, slightly salty at points, some light popcorn at others, dry and bitter at times, everything really. Nice, very complex, tasty. Superb, simply superb.

Bottle. Hazy straw gold pour, with a white head. Lemon, hay, grain, mild horse blanket, funk, green apple, and some notes of cheese. Nice beer, not the best gueuze, but good.

MelvinKalksma (1299) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, brettanomyces and acidity.

Appearance:
Turbid golden/amber beer with a slight off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends medium dry and sour with brettanomyces and acidity.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Really malty for a Geuze, but it still manages to be extremely complex.

Draft to tulip Consummation: Tart grapefruit loaded with musty grape. Adjunct: Heavy horse blanket, grapefruit, and a hint of green apple; translucent amber with a happy white and frothy head; medium bodied, sour, quite smooth and long lasting; pretty damn good

Gehbe (323) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours somewhat cloudy golden with a medium unstable white head. A very clean brett/lactic aroma. A clean dry taste, no excess sourness. Wonderful crispy dry palate. I love the taste and the palate but the aroma seems too clean to me, lacking some "perk".

SlovakSniper (5357) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2016
(37.5 cl. Bb: 07/08/2034) Une robe orange et une mousse absente. Au nez, des parfums de vinaigre, de cave humide, de pommes avec une touche de solvant. Une bouche acide plus ou moins dcapante qui laisse une impression vinaigre durable. Le corps sans bulle ou presque et la texture lgrement huileuse peuvent tre aisment associs au style. Buvable, il va sans dire. Excellent? Je ne suis pas prt me rendre l.

Barwa złocista, lekko zamglona. Piana obfita, ale szybko znika. Aromat zdecydowanie kwaśny, dominują niedojrzałe owoce: winogrona, brzoskwinie. W smaku jest mocno kwaśne, dalej bardzo owocowe, na końcu pojawia się lekko słodka nuta.
