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.

GodOfThunder (1249) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2009
Aroma is a musty and dusty sour lemon, with some dried grass. Flavors are sour and tart, with lemons and other citrus. This is a great beer, made even better by the relatively low pricetag.

jbeatty (1246) - New York, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, 10/28/2013. Pours toasted amber, thin white head dies to a splotchy haze on the surface, decent ring of lacing remains around the glass. Aroma is quite fruity with barnyard character, moderately sweet upfront overripe pear, orange and grapefruit must, transitions to earthy, dusty funk, wood. Taste is a touch sweeter than many traditional gueuze, but not overly so, with tart cider, pear notes, acidic character with some vinegar, fruitiness blends with oak in the finish. Light body, fairly crisp and dry. Decent for sure.

Rask0lnikov (1244) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 8, 2016
0,375 bottle. Golden yellow colour. Quite high head, which disappears quite quickly. Aroma already in the nose then poured out into glass. Peachy, cheesy notes. Grass, vinegar, hints of flowers. Sour, woody at first. Hints of vinegar, apples, peach in the middle. Spicy and crisp finish. Oakiness and apples in the aftertaste. Nicely balanced gueuze. Tasty.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2009
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.

magsinva (1241) - Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle from liquor express - why do I keep buying gueuze, I don’t like the tartness, though I get why others enjoy it. Anyway, pours an effervesiant clear orange. Aroma is summer and tropical fruits, ie fruit cocktail. Taste is medium sour and tart. Palate is dry. Overall, solid.

4.4
SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Pours hazy orange with a large, fast fizzling head. Smells sour, straight sour. Taste is several kinds of sour. Medium-bodied with a prickly texture and less than average mouth-carbonation, Hanssens Oude Gueuze finishes with a mild lingering sourness.

JanEric (1230) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 19, 2011
Dark blonde, small head, some bubbles. Aroma is sour, green apples, grapefruit. Sour taste, bitter, full bodied, intense, dry, fresh, until now the most intense oude gueuze I had. very nice!

ComradeK (1230) - 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.

4.1
csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JUL 3, 2007
375ml bottle. Small snifter that holds 1/2 the bottle comfortably. The beer is cloudy. gold tinted orange with lots of coarse ground pepper sized particles. Short lived head. Served 20 minutes from the main fridge. Aroma is barnyard, leather, horseblanket with some citrusy hints. Initial taste is sour, sweetened vinegar, and brett along with some vanilla, & lemon. The taste is very bretty, tart, acidic. and refreshing. The tartness and acidic, but refreshing, taste would pair well with food. To me, this is too much on its own. Old rating, just added.

3.5
King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - APR 30, 2015
Cloudy orange color. Old feet in the nose. Very sour taste a bit dry and cheesy in a good way. Dry and a little old taste in the aftertaste. Very nice gueuze.
