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.

Batch 2.

Second bottle that I have opened that smells like green apples and nail polish. Something has to be going on with the latest batch, this can't be just me. I love this beer but something just isn't right.

2009 bottle drank today. Nice golden color with a little bit of head/carbonation. Little bit of funk. Lot of acidity. A definite lemony presence on the palate. Very good overall. Solid, well-crafted beer with no major flaws as far as I can tell.
