Gueuze and Oysters

Yeah, weird pairing right? But this pairing is absolutely genius! I’m going to have to do this on my own in the future. Oysters…good….gueuze…good…..add them together and you could break the space-time continuum.

It was from this moment that I knew I wasn’t going to leave that house sober….

IMAG2702

Cantillon Lou Pepe Gueuze 2008: First time having LP Gueuze, and it’s really, really good. Turns out it’d be one of the best beers of the night! A+

IMAG2703

Armand ‘4 Herfst: Looks like this beer gets to make another appearance, and it’s still just as good as I remember. Might be the best beer of the night. A+

IMAG2704

Block 15 Golden Canary 2011: Really tasty, but doesn’t quite hold up against the competition so far. It’s sweeter than I remember, but I don’t think I’ve had the 2011 batch before. A-

IMAG2705

Commons Maybelle: Solid, but this time it just tasted like water. The other beers were far to aggressively sour and funky.

IMAG2706

Lost Abbey Duck Duck Gooze: One of my biggest wants, and I finally got to try it. This beer is SOUR. Just smelling it makes me involuntarily pucker up. Not so much funk, but I can’t really tell because I’m still crying from the sourness. Awesome beer. A+

and after.

IMAG2720

Drie Fonteinen Golden Blend: Really, really good. I guess the last bottle I had was kind of off? A+

IMAG2721

Breakside Postmodern Lambic: Don’t remember much about this one…

IMAG2722

Whales….very few bottles made of this beer. Apparently it came from France and was made with Cantillon yeast?

IMAG2724

Block 15 Super Nebula: Stupid good. A+

Don’t remember this one in detail either! Woooo!

IMAG2712

Hill Farmstead Florence: Good, but HF can do soo  much better. B+

IMAG2713

We also did a blind tasting between 2 boons, beatification, oude gueze, classic gueuze, and tilquin. My ranking was in order of best to worst: Beatification, oude gueze, tilquin, classic gueuze, and then the two boons.

Total rankings were: Beatification, tilquin, oude gueze, classic gueuze, and then the two boons.

IMAG2714

Alpine Pure Hoppiness: Stupid good. The hoppiness was a fantastic break from the sour onslaught. A-

IMAG2715

Armand 4′ Winter: Another repeat, and just as delicious. Another top beer emerges! A+

IMAG2716

Cantillon Cuvee des Champions: Haven’t gotten to tick this one before, and it’s good! A

IMAG2717

Cantillon Iris: It’s been two years since I last had this beer, and it’s really different than I remember. Still good though. A

IMAG2718

Bleh bleh blehgh blend!
