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.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2009
Bottle pours cloudy amber color with white head. Has aroma that is lemon and funk. Flavor is acidic, tart, lemon, wood, funk, and makes me pucker. Mouthfeel is highly carbonated. Overall a solid brew.

mwelsh13 (499) - Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Bottle poured yellow with a bit of haze and nice lacing and thick bubbly head. Fantastic sour aroma with citrus and some yeast. Flavor matches the aroma. Great sour flavor with some barnyard blanket funk in there too. Finish is smooth and goes down very well. Would love to try with a brunch.

IrishBoy (4198) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 21, 2009
Bottle shared at Woodshop Quad. Nose was sour tartness. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Flavor was funky and sour like a guezue should be.

Chrism86 (294) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2009
Pours golden orange with a non-existent head. Aromas of tart cider apples, citrus and leather must are present with some earthy grain as well. Palate is light and highly carbonated with a heap of leather must before intense, tart acidity takes charge to maintain the dry profile. Finishes with lingering, tart acidity.

3.8
austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - DEC 28, 2008
37,5cl bottle, 2004. Sparkling deep golden, small loose head. Fruity nose, with nice sourness, wheat and slight metal. Dry and crisply sour flavor, wheat, funk. Faint lemon skin and apple in the finish. Some musty, cheese like cellar. Soothens out with sediment poured in. Solid quality gueuze.

3.8
pineypower (3317) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours out a somewhat cloudy golden/straw color with a nice rocky slightly off white head. Aroma is tart and vinous with some slight fruity notes. Taste is of tart fruit, with some grainiess going on in the background, sour and acidic finish. Well done.

4.1
That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Crushed with Jakebra. Sexy brew. Makes the mouth water like none other. Nast smell and flavor that is really delicious on some weird level. Dont understand how that works but also dont care.

blipp (9268) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours foggy gold with a big white head. The aroma is funky, musty, and tart. The flavor is sour/tart, rhubarb, dust, and musty basement. Nice.

4.3
undsioux7 (872) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours straw yellow with a big white head that dissapates quickly. Very funky barnyard, dank, vinigary aroma. At first smell I wasn’t too sure about this one, but it grew on me. I was a bit worried about tasting it, since I know Gueuze can be a handful, but really enjoyed the taste. A perfect sour/tart bite with some fruits in there as well. I was pleasently suprised!
