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.

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.

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.

(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.

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.

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.

Flaska från SB. Guldfärgad med liten vit skumkrona. Gröna äpplen, päron, hö, stalltoner, hästfilt, nötig med inslag av sesamkaka, gröna vindruvor, fat, bra syrlighet.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - NOV 8, 2001
Much better than the Oude Kriek, I must say. Still quite tart, but not as overwhelmingly so as the other. I was impressed by the full flavor of this beer, very satisfying. Excellent with dessert.

fraternie (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2002
Very smooth geuze, flavor is sour but has somewhat of a well-water taste. Other than that, a great beer.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2004 very little head on this murky orange monster..filling the air with cheesy foot fungus among us..onslaught of sourness followed by some sweetness surrounded by sweat and barnyard toe cheese..pretty flat..not as good as the beersel gueuze I had last night but..oh well Re-rate: Much better experience.

SLightly hazy orange body with some red but more orange than red. Sour vinegar barnyard aroma. Smells quite strong. The flavor is very nice, not nearly as overpowering as other Gueuzes. Fruity up front then a pleasant sour ending. Fizzy med-ligth body. (Poured from a 1.5L magnum of unknown vintage. Shared with many great RateBeerians)
