As from 2015, they started using the word "Oude" on the labels as well. Beer is nevertheless still the same.
Dekoninck Kriek lambic is a beer of spontaneous fermentation, blended from old and young lambic, matured on oak casks. Our quality is guaranteed by the addition of 200 grams of sour cherries pro liter beer. Store in a dark place, lying down. Pour very cold in balloon snifters.

37.5cl bottle courtesy of 77ships @ Belgian RB Gathering of Ultimate Evil. BB 14/09/2013. Ruby/rougeâtre, col léger crémeux rosé foncé. Arôme de cerise noires avec un léger bouquet malté/levure. Palais reste bien fruité avec une pointe d’aigreur de cerise sans avoir au contraire de nombreuses kriek un profile trop doux., retrouve qcq tannins fruités, alterne un profile aigre-doux. Profile boisé et de lambic reste assez atténué et dominé par la cerise, le tout se terminant sur un léger côté grains et bcp de cerise.

hackobock (2181) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2015
July 8, 2015. Bottle at home, best before december 11, 2015.
Clear deep red with a medium sized frothy pinkish head. Aroma is sweet, cherries, like hard cherry candy, yoghurt and light almond. Taste is light to medium sweet up front with sweet cherries and sugar with a light tart note, finish is a bit more tart and dry. Still quite sweet with a cheery candy feel to it. Medium bodied, small bubble carbonation

Maakun (1525) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle. Clear dark red with light pink head. Red wine, quite lactic, musty cherries, yoghurt, some wood and straw. Taste is light sweet with subtle almond bitterness and a light tart touch. Quite fruity, but more in a fruit-yoghurt sweet kind of way. Medium bodied with slight creamy feel and velvety carbonation. Decent stuff.

kraddel (4560) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2015
pours very dark red / bordeaux . Small white ( light pink ) head . Smell is rather sweet cherries . Taste is wet cherries , bit sweet, some mild sour/oaky back . I dont know, I like it ... Why is it rated so low ? Light carbo, yet not flat . I’d even say carbo is perfect in this one , as well as the MF . I am rather sure sugar was used, but not too much of it . Nice one to me !

37,5cl bottle. APPEARANCE: deep dark red beer, small stable off white head. NOSE: very sweet, sweet cherries, syrupy. TASTE: overly sweet, syrup, sweet cherries. Too bad, but just another sweet kriek on the market...

Erzengel (5494) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
The nose is fresh, red or black cherries. The beer is slightly sweetish, not too sour. Fresh but sweetish, a bit artificial, like the cherries in a cherry-yoghurt. More sweet than sour. Smooth and easy to drink. A bit sticky, sweetish, Not like a typical Fruit Lambic, a bit more like a sweetish Radler.
