BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States
lostabbey.com

Style: Gueuze

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
In Belgian brewing there are fantastic wild ales brewed with naturally occurring yeast. These beers develop over time and are ready on their own terms. Duck Duck Gooze is our homage to these effervescent and wonderfully complex sparkling beers.

A blend of young and old barrel aged beers, this has been one of our most sought after beers year after year since it’s original release in 2009.

Alas, it is released in very small quantities only once every three years, so it’s extremely difficult to come by beyond the day we release it. It does, however, turn up on our Tasting Room’s Vintage List from time to time, so don’t despair.

2016 batch drank in a teku on 10/5/2016

A nice refreshing crisp sour/gueuze. Certainly one of the better gueuze that I have had. Lemony tartness is present and balanced. Not too tart. The red wine barrels definitely are prevalent with a little boozy and nice oaky presence. Glad I can finally cross this one off the list! Very tasty and worth pursuing

Outstanding! I'm still not 100% aboard the sour train, but this is definitely a strong push in the right direction. I enjoyed batch 2 over the weekend with a friend and he gave it even higher marks than me. Wish they brewed it a little bit more often though..

Previous review is for the 2009, it was a 4.5. I remember it being very sour, I had it in 2011. anxious to see how it is fresh

looks fantastic and smells great! nice funky and sour up front on the nose.
taste is a bit sour and some nice sweetness. great oak. beer is full bodied for a 7%er.
overall this a good beer, but don't make my mistake. give this a year or 2 to pucker up and get funky like the nose, right now it's a bit too young. I'll bet the 2013 is drinking fantastic right now.
