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.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle from "Completely Non-Epic Gueze Tasting ’10". Poured a hazy orange-yellow with little head. Aroma was overwhelmingly funky with wet grass, lemon and cheese. Deliciously sour with hints of orange/lemon zest, and a very dry finish. Carbonation complements the flavor wonderfully.

Color dorado, algo turbio, sin espuma. Carbonatación mínima. Aroma ácido, sidroso. Sabor a manzana muy ácida, acidez, acidez (hay más frutas pero no las capto)... Entiendo que a muchos no les guste. Para mí es una pasada.

ComradeK (1158) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2016
750ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium gold, with a small white head, which fades rather quickly, without leaving much lacing. Good sourness, leathery funk and some cut grass and cranberry hints in the aroma. Strongly sour up front, with tart citric notes. A touch of tannin and leathery funkiness in the mid-palate, tart berry notes coming through to the finish. There is a drying, leathery aftertaste. A nice gueuze.

davidezdonz (357) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - NOV 23, 2016
A 375ml corked and caged bottle with a notched bottled on dating of November 2015, poured into a Cantillon gueuze glass. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with an almost two finger white head that dissipated quickly to a thin layer while leaving no lacing. Aromas were sour, tart, funky and oaky with hints of apple and lemon. Tastes sour and tart to start followed by lemon, pear and sour apple fruitiness. The finish has some light funk, a touch of vinegar and nice oakiness. Dry, acidic, medium to light bodied with moderate to high carbonation. Overall one of the more sour Gueuze’s out there, but still very nice and enjoyable.

kapusil (1239) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2016
0.75l bottle. Clear golden body, thin white head. Huge barnyard notes in the aroma escorted by vinegar, lemon zest, salt and earth. Taste of cheese, salt, vinegar, dark sugar and lemon zest. Very sour and the finish is quite bitter (not hoppy, more like when you are chewing on lemon peel). Almost totally flat. Awesome gueuze.
