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.

ricke (476) - Malme, - NOV 23, 2009
Cellared less than a year at the brewery. Slightly hazy orange with a minimal white head. The aroma has a rather "clean" funkiness (perhaps well-defined is a better word considering the circumstances) of barnyard and mud with some pleasant notes of fruits and lemony acidity. The funkiness gets more pronounced after a while. The taste is tart and refreshing with a decent amount of funk. Pleasant notes of sour fruits and berries. Hints of oak and grass. The finish is mildly bitter and nicely dry with a faint hint of minerals. Very good. Moderate body, medium levels of carbonation. A good one. Very refreshing and fairly complex. Serving type: bottle (Copy of old Beer Advocate review)

2010 Vintage. Lambick from Beer Mania - long, long time ago. Seven years and one month in my cellar. 375ml bottle. Piana centymetrowa szybko opada, barwa jasno miedziana mętnawa. Zapach doskonaly wyrazisty, konski pot, stajnia i woda wylana na siano. Smak kwasek cytrynowe, ocet jablkowy, zjelczale migdaly. Doskonale wytrawne kwaśne i dzikie, nieobliczlny lambick. Klasyk mistrzowski

375 ml bottle at Craft Beer Co., Clerkenwell, London, UK. It pours clear amber, with a minimal white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is earth, leaves, lemon, lime, lemon zest. Taste is light sour. Nice sour mouthfeel. Body is light to medium, carbonation is flat. Overall nice!

Absolutely a vinegar. Almost a pure vinegar. Pretty much sour. After a couple of sip it's changing to a sweeter taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Antonio369 (206) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2017
375 ml bottle, served in tumbler. Vintage: 2015. Poured clear golden amber with a small half finger off white head. Lively carbonation in glass. Aroma is stunning: citrus, barnyard, goat, blue cheese, green apples, cloves, basement, spruce, wet earth, oak barrel, leather, herbs. Taste: citrus, very sour, granny smith apples, tart, bitter, oak barrel, sour cherries, blue cheese, dusty basement, herbs, spruce, ginger, vinegar, vinous tannine. Bonkers sour with velvety sweetness. Very refreshing and absolutely delicious. Medium body with a supersour bittersweet finish. Now THIS is what you call a Gueuze, a real piece of art and a wonderful experience.

Vivbeer (21) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2017
La bière à boire comme un cidre. Fruitée, ronde en bouche, fraîche et légère, une des rares bières dont je peux boire la grande bouteille en entier sans sourciller. Plutôt dorée et plate, elle s’ouvre sur une note de fruits frais, et puis une pointe d’acidité pour retourner sur la touche équilibrée de bière vineuse. Outrageusement harmonieuse et riche, un must.

From a 375 ml bottle corked and caged bottle in 2012. Pours a clear copper with a thin off white head. Aroma of barnyard and citrus. Flavors of grapfruit and tart grapes. Mellowed and smooth with bottle age.
