COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Erzengel (4745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2015
37.5 cl, best before 06.10.2031. Fresh and sourish typical nose, hints of horse blanket. Sourish-sharp beginning. Quite intense sour, hints of fruit, very dry. Not too deep. Plank/shelf in a way. Quite strange but nice. Dry sourish horse blanket in the aftertaste. Round, nice, sour.

Bottle at Delirium Café. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy black walnut, oak, vinous notes and stale hops. Flavor is black walnut, vinous notes, farmhouse yeast notes, light malt and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

AbouAli (187) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Jaune claire, mousse reste pas mal, très légère et pas beaucoup de goût de gueuze. Assez facile à boire. Pas très acide, pas très marquée.

jbeatty (1104) - New York, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle, 10/20/2014. Unsure what vintage but more than likely recent. Pours hazy dark orange gold, fluffy white head with great retention, sparkling bubbles apparent for quite some time. Aroma is dusty, musty sour malts, pear, tart green apple, sour funk, damp wood. Taste is tart white fruit and lemon, moderately acidic, somewhat cheesy, grapefruit bitterness and mild funk, sour malty finish a bit sweeter than some other gueuze. Bright, sparkling body.

jgb9348 (4946) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Super hazy orange and copper coloured body with a thin half a centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of super sour grapes, wheat, yeast, coriander seed, funk, pears, apples and more sour notes - this is exactly what you hope for when you have a gueuze. Medium-bodied; Assertive sour grapes up front with a deep yeast and citrus note and a lot of sour funk that shows through very nicely. Aftertaste shows a lot of complexity with a ton of dry notes, some hay, grass and coriander seed, but also a touch of sweetness to accompany the sourness that permeates. Overall, a very nice gueuze with a lot of character and spice, but exactly what I was expecting. Naturally, a tough beer style to go up against, but a very nice representation in my book and I definitely wish I could get this whenever I wanted! I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased from Delices and Caprises in Bruxelles, Belgium on 19-August-2013 for €6,00 sampled at home in Washington on 27-July-2014 on my last day (of two) of unemployment, before starting my next job.

VsXsV (2602) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle at DHVL. 2000 vintage. Clear deep golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of barnyard, cellar, bread and feces. Smell like shit, literally. Tate is light sweet and light sour with notes of barnyard, earth and raw sugar. Medium bodied with no carbonation. Really bad... Probably way too old.

mcberko (8113) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
2000 Vintage. 375mL bottle at DHVL, pours a clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma brings out stale wet wood and light funk. Flavour is exactly the same, with lots of wet wood, cardboard, and light funk. I wonder how this was when it was new - the cardboard comes out a lot, though it doesn’t exactly taste stale. Good stuff, but unexciting gueuze.
