Lost Abbey gets 2 on Wine Enthusiasts’ Top 25 beers for 2009
Wine Enthusiast Magazine has published its list of the top 25 beers of 2009. We’re please to find two Lost Abbey beers — Cuvee de Tomme and Duck Duck Gooze — made the list, both with excellent ratings of 93 out of 100. Along with our neighbor and good friend Stone Brewing, we’re the only breweries to have two beers on the list (the Stone-Nonge-Jolly Pumpkin collaboration, Special Winter Ale, and Vertical Epic 09.09.09 both scored very solid 92’s).
Here’s a selection from the Cuvee review in the article:
…A ton of things going on in the mouth: flavors of bourbon, sour cherry, coffe cream, walnut and more balanced by appropriate acidityto counter the weight and heft of the flavor profile. An infinite finish with minimal carbonation and high abv makes this an ecellent sipper to be shared among good friends or stored in the cellar for years to come.
