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.

boxofrane (2272) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours translucent orange with a small white head that dissipates rather quickly. The aroma has a bit of vinegar notes, a bit of woodiness / earthiness, a bit of washrag. The taste is quite tart, longer sourish duration, semi-dry. Very solid.

Mad_Ferret (683) - SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2014
U: disig gyllorange två fingrar smutsvitt bubbligt skum knappt någr rester 4 D: sur och rejält funkig med blöt hund urinoar citron bokna äpplen vinäger men tyvärr också nagellack. S: sur och torr med citron äpple lite krusbär vinäger och en lätt ljust brödig ton. Mot slutet känns den plötsligt lite stickig och lite kemisk. Men inte så illa som doften. M: medel till lättare med mjukt frasig/poppig kolsyra och lite oljig sträv textur. T: det började riktigt bra men så hände något framförallt med doften som inte kändes bra. Går inte ens att lukta på. Bad bottle.

vipinvelp (2414) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2014
Aroma is everywhere in the room, strong. Sour green apples for me. Taste is a snap of sour you really have to get used to. Likewise aftertaste, but I like it. (Brussel 201405)

Bottle to glass. Pours a hazy deep golden light amber color with virtually no head. Aroma is dry, slightly tart, fruity, apples. Flavor is mostly tart, slightly sweet, grapes, apples. Lighter in body with a lingering tartness, not much carbonation. Very tasty sour beer.

neuromatt (1218) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
750 mL bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy orange-amber with a small white head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big notes of sour apples, cider, flowers and yeast. The flavour is intensely sour with big apple cider notes, pale malts, yeast and flowers. The finish is long and cidery with yeasty notes. On the palate it is medium in body with an astringent texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent but intensely sour geuze with apple and cider notes. Not as complex as it could be. 2014-05-02

VDuquerroux (421) - 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.
