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.

Foam Rangers tasting. Gold color with average head. Barn-y funk with citrus and oak. Much tart up front. Flavor is sour citrus with great acidity and clean finish. Solid beer.

A bit on the expensive side...I know that’s got nothing to do with the rating, but worth noting. An orange-yellow color, with a very thin white head, and soft carbonation. Still, mouth feel is sharp and a bit of a burn going down. I get strong grapefruit sourness and acid, so that’s probably the culprit. Almost a sour apple cider, verging on a cider vinegar flavor. Great beer to have tried, but not really one of my favorites.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2011 Bottle at Plan B. It pours a hazy yellow with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is strong and dry with notes of humid cellar, citrus, apple and sesame. The flavour is dominated by lemon and sesame with notes of apple and wood ending in a lemon bitter after taste.

Old 1950-1960, 80cl bottle to celebrate the completion of my master studie and a new government in DK! :-D Big courtesy to Raf (Pallieter85)!! Shared with Trine, Mikkels, SIlja, RangledeFreak and Andreasen11. Pours lovely golden/amber with not head. removing the cork was quite a task, as it felt totally apart but left a small fizz when breaking its seal. It had a nice and smooth aroma revealing its an old and slightly oxidised bottle. The taste was still very acidic with earthy notes and a hint of cork. Not that it has turned bad but I like it better when its not that old. Anyway it was astonishing to try and what a gem! Thanks again Raf!

Pours a slightly hazy golden with off white head. Aroma is an explosion of sour funk, tart, citrus, lemon, spice, apple, dried fruit. Gueuuuuze. Taste is similar, so much fruit sourness. A great Lambic Gueuze.

750ml shared at Scottyp’s housewarming tasting. Holy shit. I can feel the enamel leaving my teeth as I write this. Clear golden straw pour with good white head. Nose is the sour gym socks that I have come to love from this style. Flavor is like that of a lemon warhead. I am starting to warm up to this style,

Pours a lasting ring of off-white head. Aromas of stank, funk, sour, and bubblegum. Flavor is zest, bubblegum, and sour, like warhead candy. Enamel is being stripped from my teeth by this delicious, mouth-puckering brew.

Bottle shared with Savvy1982... Thanks Kyle! Pours a hazy yellow with no head. Aroma is complex and sour wioth earthy and soapy notes. Very nice acidic and musty flavor. Nice mouth feel. Nice beer... Now the heart burn kicks in and ends our gueuze tasting early. But the best of the lot we tried back to back.

’04 Bottle from the First Annual Sour Tasting, thanks to Andrew. Pours a clear copper yellow with a thin off white head. Hay citrus, light funk and mild earthiness that makes me think faded hops. Tart citrus flavors, hay, earthy and almost leathery in texture. Tart and acidic, this really comes together well. Nice gueuze.

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 isn’t quite as intense as the aroma, but is very well balanced, and quite sour for a Gueuze. Incredibly nice.
