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.

Bottle pour at 2016 O’Brien’s SDBW Lost Abbey Beer Dinner.

A: Pours pale straw colored with a half inch of foamy head.

S: Off dry, light brett character (horseblanket, earth), soft fruit (pineapple, orange, candied tangerine), some supporting vanilla and oak. Balance is towards the brett.

T: Follows the nose, with light but firm tartness and moderate creaminess.

M: Medium-light body and carbonation.

O: Tasty, elegant, and well constructed, though the flavors were a bit more muted than expected. Overall, I liked the Veritas 017 and 018 a bit better.
