BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States

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.

Drank the 2013. This is by far the finest beer I've ever had. It was so complex. Smelled so funky, tasted so sour and funky. Made me smile so much drinking this beer, lived way up to the hype for me.

God do I love this beer and I've only had it on tap @ Lost Abbey. So we'll blended and balanced, slightly tart, medium sour, a little grainy sweetness, and a hint of apricot/peach. It truly is one of the best American sours on the market. The price tag hurts the pocket book but that's the Lost Abbey business model. Worth splurging on once before you die.

Bottle pour into a taster glass (2013 vintage). Tart, sour, pear notes that balance nicely with the oak. Excellent beer...would love to try the 2010 vintage sometime down the road.
