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.

1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Bottle of non-recorded vintage. The beer was quite tart and leathery. But, for a gueuze pretty balanced. Not overly puckering. A nice carbonated palate with acid, bitterness, and acetic qualities. The beer reminded me of a Cantillon Classic Gueuze I had earlier in the week.

Geuzelambix (243) - Kbenhavn, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
This is how a geuze is supposed to be. An aroma which is nearly bad but at the same time promising, a flavor of heaven with sour, bitter and surprising elements melting together - try this now!

emacgee (4671) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Poured a soft hazy yellow with a creamy white head. The nose is tart, sour, vinous, muscadine, funky, dry. The flavor is also very tart and sour, yeasty and funky, acidic with a light waxyness. Tart and carbonated mouthfeel.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bottle at Spuyten. Hazy light orange with a medium, dissipating off white head. Aroma: funky and sour, with sour apple, citrus, horseblanket, pepper, oak, and cheese. Taste is nice, with alot of sour fruit- apples, citrus, pepper, funky socks, old cheese, damp wood and some vinegar. Very mild sweetness across the palate. This was a nice gueze, enjoyed it.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2008
At Cafe Bar Le Duc s Hertogenbosch (NL). A hazy yellow/golden colored beer, with a nice, small but fast white head. This stays very long. The aroma is woody, sour. Also fruity with some bitter. The taste is sour/biiter, but it fades to gentle sour/sweet. Its a fresh beer. As aftertaste the sour with sweet stays for a while. Another very good geuze

Old review from 2006, need to re-rate this. Poured a cloudy yellow color, leaves a light lacing around the glass. Smell was sour and funky, definate barnyard smell. Taste was sour and reminded me of a horse in a barn eating rotten fruit. Average carbonation and light bodied. I couldn’t drink all of mine, I just didn’t care for it. Additional info: I’m sure this is spot on for the style, but this was my first try at the style. I didn’t seem to care for Oud Bruin’s the first time I tried them, but I love them now. So even though this won’t be given high scores from me, I definately think it’s worth trying and I will be trying it again, hopefully enjoying then.

travita (4970) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Darker orange like color with a foamy white head. Dry and thinner palate. Smell is little grain, fruits, and tart. Taste is super sour, a good fruity tartness, and acidic. Long lasting taste. Good.
