COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As from 2015, they started using the word "Oude" on the labels as well. Beer is nevertheless still the same.
Dekoninck Gueuze lambic is a traditional gueuze from the Pajottenland. By spontaneous fermentation and year-long maturing in oak vessels, the gueuze Dekoninck obtains its specific flavour.

bartlebier (2683) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2015 37,5cl bb09/2034. Bodacious yellow pour, mid-fizzy, thick white head. Worty, malt-infused lemon rind aroma with sturdy barnyard, mild old cider. Taste is straightforward like an old lemon rind cider, just as smooth and sturdy as Boon and Moriau from the same pedigree, with mid-lingering berry notes towards refinement. Manages to do a less spectacular job than Tilquin with less refinement as well in the +6% league, but still very sturdily on-topic, easily drinkable and quenching.

Corked and caged bottle split two ways. Light hazy golden pour with a rather big head (for lambics). Green apples, lemon juice, funk, apple skin, some wheaty notes. Actually pretty good!
