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.

VDuquerroux (268) - Airvault, FRANCE - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle, 37.5 cL. Home. A beautiful orange beer with brown hues, yellow at the bottom of the glass. Fizzy. Medium thin white head. Poor persistence. Smoked aroma with wood, vinegar and apple (when the temperature is getting higher). Heavy sour with a sharp note in the middle. Light sweet. Medium body and texture. Fizzy carbonation. Lasting sour finish. Refreshing. Overall, I really liked this one : smoked sour with a fruity note.

Mora2000 (5666) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottled January 2013. Clear orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some cheesy funk as well as some barnyard notes and biscuit malt. The flavor is not as funky as the aroma led me to believe it would be, but it is still very nice. I get some cherry notes as well as some light barnyard funk, a little bit of brett and some light tartness. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very nice gueuze.

Lemke10 (772) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 2, 2014
This pours a cloudy, golden amber color with a foamy head. The aroma is slightly sweet and yeasty. The taste is sweet with lots of sugar, slightly tart, and leaves a lingering bitter taste. This is very tasty and a decent lambic for the price. With a good full texture this a lambic that delivers.

I thought I was buying an unblended Lambic, but unfortunately it was another Gueze. Nothing good about this style.

Vestergaard (316) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 24, 2014
Pours lovely, slight cloudy orange with a white, lively head. Aroma is fresh and sour, with classic geuze and vinegar notes. The taste is very grape fruity, but has an almost strong sourness to it, that tickles your tongue. A little cheese in the end, that you some times get in old saisons. Very nice geuze, but very standard too.

RasmusOtt (1095) - Aalborg, DENMARK - APR 24, 2014
Pours cloudy amber with a tiny white head. Aroma is fresh and tart. I get notes of green sour apples, freshly squeezed lemon, sour berries, subtle stable notes, wild Brett quality overall. Taste has that same green sour apples along with tons of grapefruit, sour berries, citrus and wild Brett notes overall. Almost has notes of sulfur in it. Also some cheesy notes in the end. Wow - what a surprise this was!

Cory (306) - , California, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle aged 1 year. Clear golden amber color, nice big head, lemon and a little earthyness behind it. After a couple sips the aroma seems closer to strawberry lemonade that is almost immediately overshadowed once the sour and mulch flavors take over. I only know cause I just walked into my wife’s garden and her manure mulch is spot on. This beer is very nice for a warm day in the garden. Cheers

Flaska från systembolaget. Guldfärgad smått grumlig vätska med vitt skum. Fräsch syrlig doft av framförallt citron. I smaken återkommer känslan av färsk och sur citron. Jordkällare, te och äpplekart. Syrligheten balanseras upp av en bra beska.

Osprey87 (1611) - WALES - APR 12, 2014
2012 vintage. Cold bottle, into a tulip. Perfectly clear orange, slightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma - funky lemon. Body - medium, low carbonation for the style (medium-ish), slightly foamy, tooth-coating sugar. Taste - sodawater, sour lemon, finishes tart, some undercooked chicken. Overall - not my favourite style, but a decent example.
