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.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a thin skim of white foam. Ropey lacing at best. Nose is sour and spicy; loads going on here. Blackberry, blueberry, raspberry, apples, spice, oak, must, damp earth, funk, sweaty horseblanket. Tight and fresh, with plenty of salty lemons and seaspray, iodine, tour peachskin. Wow! Cracking good! Palate isnt quite as intense as the aroma, but is very well balanced, and quite sour for a Gueuze. Incredibly nice.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2009
(Bottle) Pours light hazy golden with small to medium-sized head. The aroma is big time bretty with tones of sweaty horse/horse blanket and barnyard. Very citric with notes of lemon and lime alongside a light fruitiness. Undertones of dust, saw dust, cheese and wood. The flavour is very dry, tart and acidic with tones of horse blanket, barnyard, wood, citrus, fruits and vinegar. Medium carbonation. Near medium bodied. A brett bomb!

shigadeyo (3708) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2009

April(?) 2008: Shiny new copper color, hazy complexion, bitterness in the middle and finish, very acidic and tart flavor = Hanssens Oude Gueuze. Again, this beer is good, but beyond my realm of true understanding.

1 pt. 9.4 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 6% Vol.) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #480 for this beer.

floydian1 (1435) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 23, 2009
Corked 37.5cl bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. A fizzy amber geuze beer with a minimal short-lasting white head. Prominent aromas of citrus fruits (oranges and lemons) with a hint of damp wood. The flavour is tart lemony sourness which seems to get sweeter and smoother as your palate adjusts to it. The damp woodiness is in there as well. Finishes dry and tart. Medium bodied with a fullish mouthfeel. Probably the most complex and sour geuze I have tried so far. Not sure I like it as much as the others.
