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.

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.

Bottiglia 37,5 cL, @ Valhalla Pub, Pavia. Al naso è davvero molto complessa, spiccano sentori di cuoio, fieno, muffa e agrumi. In bocca è acda, secca e aspra. Selvatica.

Piwo koloru jasnego bursztyna, lekko mętne, bardzo słaba piana. W aromacie koń, siano, cytrusy, wyczuwam też lekkie nuty słodkich jasnych owoców. W ustach intensywnie kwaśne, ściągające. Czuć cytrynę, lekką skórę, trochę drewna, trochę mokrego siana, bardzo delikatny posmak wody po ogórkach kiszonych. Na finiszu grejpfrutowa gorycz. Wysycenie średnie. Bardzo przyjemny i orzeźwiający lambik.

Bottle at home. Pours golden. Aroma has sweet funky berries with funk. Taste is sour with rosehips, grass and funk. Smooth palate. Really nice.

Particolarmente citrica. Schiuma quasi completamente assente. Selvaticona. Frutta.

Golden, slightly hazy, big head. Horse, lemon, barnyard, hay, leather, earthy. Perfect balance between sour and dry.

Aromă medie spre puternică acră/înăcrită, malț și drojdii, ceva murături, note de butoi nespălat. Gust foarte curat amar, drojdii la minimum, mai mult lăstari de viță-de-vie, postgust de durată, plăcut acru. Foarte bună și "curată".

LouisP (574) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2017
Une bière orangée, avec une fine ligne de carbonatation, et une effervescence moyenne. Au nez, ce n'est pas très expressif, mais on détecte assez bien les brettanomyces, ainsi qu'un petit côté vinaigré qui me rappelle le vin rouge. En bouche, on sent assez bien l'acidité, de même que l'effervescence bien prononcée de cette gueuze. L'acidité, au fil de gorgées prend de l'ascendant sur l'ensemble de la bière. Manque un peu d'équilibre.
