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.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2009
The last beer I drank at beer week. Dead flat in the mouth, almost no head, almost no hops ... an aged gueuze. Funky smell, moderate complexity. More detail: Looks just like a gueuze ... hazy gold, no head, no lace ... not pretty. Mouth of a queuze ... no carbonation, almost dead flat. Nose of a gueuze ... not supposed to be nice and, I guess, it’s not. Funky. Taste is interesting and moderately complex, citrus and sour, but not really complex enough for interest to outweigh intrinsic gueuze nastiness.

My first experience with this style...I guess I'll need more, I don't see the big deal. Light appearance, minimal head. Smells of stale pork chops, peach/nectarine fruity taste. I'll have to try more of these.

Clear yellow-brown pour with a thin white head. A few small bubbles throughout. Woody citrus aroma with lots of acidity. A touch of vinegar on top. Bitter earthy flavor with a nice mild tartness. Herbal grass finish.

thebaldwizard (1365) - Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Golden brown with a very slight white head. The aroma is sour with light hints of fruit. An even palate and smooth mouthfeel leads to sour flavors with just a hint of funk. There is an interesting sour "burn" in the aftertaste.

Sampled from a bottle at Zmogsala beer festival. OK funky gueuze, medium sourness, bit of fruitiness, ok tart finish, not very intensive.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle. Pours gold with off white head. Aroma is super tangy bleu cheese, oak, tart fruit, pepper. Flavor is very salty, (almost like the first bite of movie popcorn), peppery, tangy funky musty bleu cheese, cheddar cheese, tart fruit, slight vinegar. Good stuff.

fkoolen (1337) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2015
37,5cl bottle at home. Clear copper colour, white foamy head that quickly disappears. Fruity white grapes, muscat-like together with the sweet malts, not too tard or dry; nicely balanced, rounded. Low carbonation, good body.

Flaska från SB. Dimmigt ljusorange med lite vitt skum. Syrlig doft. Sötsur smak med torr munkänsla.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2015
0.375 bottle. Pours a hazy golden barely producing a small white top. Nice aroma of stables, dry hay and a semi tart pungency. Taste is mellow sour with hints of pale malts. Fairly low co2 leves compared to other gueuzes I’ve had. Still a nice lambic.
