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.

Proteus (98) - FINLAND - AUG 20, 2007
75 cl bottle. The head is a bit fading in the end but starts off with at lovely frothy head. A cellary aroma blended with citrus and oak. The flavor is a mixture of different spices with the gueuze tartness, still a bit too dry to leave anything sensational on the palate. Nevertheless a decent gueuze.

mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
From green 37.5 ml bottle, pours bubbly and straw-colored. Aroma of durian fruit with flavor of fermented soy beans, rotten apples and limbuger cheese. Finish is green apple and kimchi. Startling style.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 7, 2009
750ml bottle at Novare Res. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a vanishing white head. Aroma of funk, yogurt, and cheese. Flavor is tart, sour, with a note of yogurt/cheese like flavor. Extemely acidic even by lambic standards. Gave me a sore stomach, i enjoyed it a lot, but the aftermath kind of ruined it.

Bloekie (210) - BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2009
(Big bottle from Pelgrim) Aroma of old cheese. No head but troubled golden color. Really nice raw geuze taste with a refined sour and bitter palate. Overall a nice geuze, but nothing all too special at that.

j12601 (9684) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours an opaque orange with a medium white head that fades down quickly. Light lacing, and little bits of sediment in the glass. Piles of wine cork funk, acid, and hay. Medium bodied and sour from the start hitting the front of the tongue sharply before moving to the sides of the mouth with a nice puckering sourness. Nice crisp acid. Finishes tart and acidic, but very earthy and funky.

tennisjoel (1385) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2009
Deep golden bodied with a thin white head. Barnyard funk aroma. Some sour apple and lemon. Fairly puckering sour, but not overly done. A good example. Ive never been a huge sour fan, but Im starting to find out that I dig the aroma on this style almost more than the flavor itself.

blankboy (7351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2009
My bottle (12.7oz) shared with garthicus, jerc & mabel -- c/o GregClow. Pours a hazy orange with a large diminishing fluffy white head. Nice aroma! Sour, funky and yeasty along with sharp spices and citrus. Flavour of tart citrus, sour fruit, light spices and some funkyness -- it tingles the tongue. Medium bodied. Great stuff!

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Medium cloudy amber, no head. Aroma is weird like sour bandaids but flavor is surprisingly sweeter but still tart. Flavor: sweet hay that horses have walked all over with poopy horse-shoes but weirdly ina very delicious and refreshing way. Crisp mouthfeel and slightly dry finish with an aftertaste like orange juice.

Hazy gold foamy head. Cheese, funk and barnyard. Flavor is extremely sour! Great flavor with nice syrupy mouthfeel.
