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.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, - JAN 6, 2006
Couleur dorée, apparence claire et filtrée, mousse blanche tachetée de nature plutôt persistante. Vieux chêne mouillé, herbage fané et acide lactique disproportionné tentent de masquer les arômes, moins propres, de vieilles de poche de patate longuement oubliées dans un coin de la chambre froide poussiéreuse. Acidité prononcée sous des saveurs légèrement maltées, boisées, citronnée ainsi que celles des sucres non-fermentés. Finale sèche, carbonatation très active et piquante. Ne semble pas être un produit 100% lambic. Bouteille 37.5 cl, Délirium Café, Décembre 2005.

Lotto L51421, 7% ABV, 37,5 cl. imbottigliata il 22/05/2015, aperta precisamente un anno dopo. Dorata carica, opalescente, schiuma bianca fine mediamente persistente. Aroma di polvere, mela verde, pepe, frumento, note oleose, legnose, di pesca e leggere note di stallatico. Al palato buon equilibrio, acidula, mela verde, leggerissima astringenza, finale equilibrato da frumento, legno e leggero stallatico, note oleose. Corpo medio, molto carbonata, texture leggermente oleosa, Lambic di discreta eleganza, ce ne sono di più complessi, ma tirando le somme risulta decisamente piacevole.

popery (1876) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 18, 2016
375 ml bottle. Much better than expected. The beer is a somewhat dusky gold. Moderate amount of haze is visible. Small to medium white head, fizzles away within a couple minutes. This is a pretty fresh bottle, but the beer smells more like the older vintage gueuze that I’ve tried. Lots of earthy funk with an undercurrent of pale malt sweetness. Solid mineral note. Light candied lemon citrus tang in there. Light but complex sour flavor. Taste is moderately sour. Lots of funk and mineral flavor. Nice and dry. Nice level of astringency. Very enjoyable.

erickok (5095) - Leuven, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2016
Very yellow fruit sourness, cider like even, but very typical geuze. Strong juicy sourness, plucky even, but well developed so I very much dig the appeal. Good brew! (375ml bottle from Dekoninck)
