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.

[email protected] In The Moon, Stockholm. Amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is mild sweet fruits and wood mixed with some tartness. Flavour is equal, rather sweet, but also has some dry tartness and dry wooden notes kicking in. Mellows out and gets a bit more earthier with the yeast poured in. Also gets some slight spicy notes along with the yeast.

jgb9348 (6515) - 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.

Bottled. Hazy deep golden coloured with a rather small fizzy head. Very nicely balanced with notes of barnyard, citrus and vinegar. Kinda smooth.

shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2012
Bottle from Delices and Caprices. The usual gueuze appearance, clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma is sharp and vinous, nice funk, strong grapefruit, bit bread malt. Taste is lovely, grapefruit and lemon and sour at the beginning, goes into touch of fruit, strawberry maybe, and nice flat creamy finish. Very spritzy in the mouth. Very nice.

popery (2231) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (4451) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 2, 2017
Vintage 2017. 375ml Bottle from Belgiuminabox.com. Mala piana, pecherzykowa szybko znika. Brak osadu ale mimo to lambick ten jest zamglony. Jasna oranzadowa barwa. Zapach spoconej ludzkiej skory. W smaku ozezwiajace, kwasek cytrynowy, ocet jablkowy. Wytrawne, choc moglo by byc bardziej. W strone extremy. Lubie to. Moze gdyby polezalo dluzej w mojej piwnicy tak by bylo bo mlody to lambick.
