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.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2012
12.7oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a hazy orange with a tiny ring of bubbles along the top of the beer. Really lacking in carbonation. Aroma has moderate amounts of barnyard funk but not as much as some other examples of the style. Also a little bit of fruit. Tons of sourness at first leading to a moderate earthiness with the barnyard notes somewhat muted. I am also picking up some fruit, mainly cherries, throughout but becoming more noticeable towards the finish. I thought this was a decent gueuze but somewhat lacking in the funk/barnyard area. The sourness is quite puckering but I would have liked more funk. I would drink it again, though.

dysenteri (183) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - DEC 9, 2016
Bottle from SB. Clear yellow, white head. BF in 2034. Lovely funky, apricot, citrusy, barn, funk aroma. Sour tart taste, superdry with hints of elderflower. Demanding and complex geuze, took a while for me to like this beer but now its awesome.

ComradeK (1158) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a small white head, which fades rather quickly, without leaving much lacing. Good sourness, leathery funk and some cut grass and cranberry hints in the aroma. Strongly sour up front, with tart citric notes. A touch of tannin and leathery funkiness in the mid-palate, tart berry notes coming through to the finish. There is a drying, leathery aftertaste. A nice gueuze.

davidezdonz (360) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - NOV 23, 2016
A 375ml corked and caged bottle with a notched bottled on dating of November 2015, poured into a Cantillon gueuze glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with an almost two finger white head that dissipated quickly to a thin layer while leaving no lacing. Aromas were sour, tart, funky and oaky with hints of apple and lemon. Tastes sour and tart to start followed by lemon, pear and sour apple fruitiness. The finish has some light funk, a touch of vinegar and nice oakiness. Dry, acidic, medium to light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall one of the more sour Gueuzes out there, but still very nice and enjoyable.
