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 Vintage poured into a teku:

Cloudy straw-yellow slightly orange pour with small head and constant champagne like carb bubbles rising
Smells a bit like vermouth, some sour/acetic tones, grape, flowery, herbally
WOW, the flavors are incredibly complex floral tones that fade into sour, horse blanket body and finishes like a dry wine
I have to give the feel some love here, the carb is perfect for the style and definitely helps to highlight some of the subtleties
