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.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 Flaska frn systembolaget. Guldfrgad smtt grumlig vtska med vitt skum. Frsch syrlig doft av framfrallt citron. I smaken terkommer knslan av frsk och sur citron. Jordkllare, te och pplekart. Syrligheten balanseras upp av en bra beska.

ComradeK (1181) - 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.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2007
750 ml bottle from Sams in Chicago, no date. Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy and fizzy off-white head. Tart lemon, hay, yeasty, dank cobweb, and earthy aroma. Flavour is balanced somewhere between sour and tart with lots of lemon and grapefruit (fruit and pith), cheesy and dry yeasty bitterness to finish. Light to medium bodied, dry, refreshing, lightly fizzy but highly quaffable. Feels like its got a more substantial body than other gueuze, but retains the dry refreshing drinkability. Delicious gueuze.

scottw86 (1171) - Maryland, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Poured a hazy yellow/amber with almost no head. Aroma is funky with lemons and sour apples. Taste is crisp and sour. This has been blended very well. The perfect amount of tart to accompany the fruity flavors. Lemon, apples, and sour flavors dominate. Aftertaste is sour, but not too sour. Im not too familiar with the style, but this was a great introduction!

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2008
375mL bottle. Pours hazy straw color, with a thin off-white head. Tart nose; with apple cider vinegar, citrus, leather, and wood. Citrus, mainly lemon and grapefruit, apple, vinegar, and barnyard notes all interact seamlessly on the palate. Flavor is tart, but not as much as I expected from the aroma. Long, dry, fairly sour finish. Delicious and incredibly drinkable.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
375ml bottle. Cloudy gold/brass orange colour with moderate white head. Smells like white grape and musty basement. Sour is intense but not as much as I was expecting. Some mushroom and maybe some bitterness too. Body is quite dry. Overall, more balanced than some lambics Ive had.

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Thanks to my bro for sharing this. Pours a hazy straw color with thin white head. Aroma is the classic lambic components: yeast funkiness, horse blanket, mild strawberry notes, toasted grain flavor. Taste is light strawberry, intense yeast and horse blanket and light wood notes.. Palate is very acidic and sour, but fits this brew perfectly. Excellent lambic.
