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.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2013 Pours a burnt hazy golden color with a white bubbly head. Very bright tart fruit notes on the nose, lots of barnyard funk and grassy, lactic acid, and slightly peppery. Very tart taste, a musty funkiness, lemons, grassy and peppery, and maybe a bit of white grape. Very tart beer with a very dry finish. Quite tasty.

Bule (1916) - California, USA - JAN 14, 2017
750ml bottled Nov 2015. Pours a pale brown color with a little froth on top. Mild carbonation. Some nice gueuze bitumen flavor. But the flavor dies quickly leaving it a little watery.

Unde (947) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 10, 2017
Clear golden yellow beer which looks like whisky with no head at all. Aroma has green apples which are sour, hint of barnyard. Taste is sour with green apples and slight yeast but too mellow for me Nothing stands out here. Medium body and high carbonation. Sadly nothing stands out here.

Quack-Duck (9356) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2016
bottle, thanks to kappldav123! Hazy golden with a fluffy white head. Tart and quite sour start with a vinegary touch. Shy barnyard flavours tune in, woody-dusty hops in the finish.

Olo13 (84) - POLAND - DEC 21, 2016
Pachnie kombinacją mokrego konia i odgrzebanego po 10 latach z piwnicy skrzanego buta, w smaku bije kwasem, to chyba jest ok ;) W smaku podobnie. Generalnie mocne w każdą stronę.

ksiwzos (136) - GREECE - DEC 12, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2016 Light amber color with short white head that dissipates. Smell of horse manure, mold, strawberry, berries, citrus, salinitylactic acid, soap, burnt plastic overtones. Taste is salty, tart, light sweet, earthy-soil notes, citrus, acidity is quite strong. Aftertaste is tart with mainly soap and lemon notes. Low carbonation, medium body. A solid and complex brew but Ive tried better from Hanssen...

yourilevesque (1610) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2016
Une gueuze qui na jouit daucun traitement particulier, qui nest pas rare, qui nest pas cher et aucunement pris. Pourtant une gueuze absolument dlectable! La robe est fonce, trouble, et aucunement mousseuse. Janticipe une barrique qui a donn tout ce quelle avait au liquide. Armes terreux, fruits et poussireux souhait, le tout bien balanc et complexe. Dominantes boise et vanille en bouche allge par une douce effervescence. Corps ample pour le style, longue en bouche et charge de saveurs issues dune flore bactrienne mature et colore. Une grand plaisir dguster!
