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.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2007
Bottle, 37,5 cl. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Funky lambic aroma. Flavour is all the sour fruits you can think of, grape fruit, rhubarb, lemon, unripe apples and so on. A bit too acidic.

vyvvy (6197) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - APR 12, 2007
Pours clear amber / orage with a whispy white head. The aroma has leather, tobacco, barnyard funk, some vinegar and sourness. While the words dont sound good for the aroma, they are. Medium body that is both rich and crisp with some mild carbonation that goes down very smooth. The taste starts with some woodiness and pepper with vinegar and barnyard yeasty fund ~ quite rich and sour. The finish is smooth with some spice and sourness.

Miksu (5046) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - JUL 12, 2007
0.375 l bottle. Bright compper color with some head. Very acidic aroma with grapefruit, pineapple, lemon and sulphur. Acidic and sharp flavor with both vinegar and lactic acid as well as grapefruit and lemon. A bit too sharp for my taste.

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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Golden in color, slight haze, moderate to large foamy white head, clingy lacing.   Sour nose, notes of wheat and oak.   Very minor pale fruit skin, ones that I would say are under ripened because of their sourness.   Has a little funk, barnish, perhaps a little horse blanket.   Certainly tart on the tongue, bordering on sour.   Quite dry, with hints of immature Apple skin, granny smith like.   Minor sweetness, balances out the tart aspect rather well.   Fairly full bodied, moderate mouthfeel.   Finishes very dry.   Very good, albeit somewhat middle of the road.   Tiz very clean too.

sthlm (1289) - Duluth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2007
[Bottle, thanks Brewfiend] Pours very cloudy with white head. Nice sour aroma. Taste is also quite sour with a slight bitterness at the end. Solid beer, but not the best gueuze out there.

kramer (6527) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2007
750 ml bottle, Stateline Liquors. Pours a clear dark gold to light amber under a one finger fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation retains head as a thin covering. Lots of heavy lacing. The nose is dusty, musty cellar funk with some horseblanket, yeast, some light soft cheesy funk, cork, and a little tartness. Wow, huge overpowering vinegary acidity and intense tartness dominates, in a way almost covering up some of the funkiness that I want. It does emerge on the finish as musty cork and brettiness. Mouthfeel is very dry with a shockingly acidic bracing middle. Light to medium bodied with lots of fizzy prickly carbonation. Overall, a little too one-sided with the overwhelming acidity. Middle of the road for Oude Gueuze.

akevitt (97) - Valhalla, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Thanks to brewfiend for sharing! The beer was cloudy yellow-orange with light foam and some sediment. It had a sour earthy aroma and flavor. Mildly acidic finish.

tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 20, 2007
37.5cl green bottle. Poured a dull gold color with a slight white head. Very intense "horse blanket" aroma. A smooth flavor blend of tart and sour. Complex and well done.
