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 we expect this to be one of our most sought after beers year after year as it will be released in very small quantities. Available in 375 and 750ml bottles.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2010
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris Oís Kook Fest tasting.
Yellow colour with a deep haze and a thin white head. Yet another highly rated U.S. sour that I find not quite worthy of the hype. Donít get me wrong though, itís certainly a very tasty brew. Very pleasing on the palate, yet strangely thick. Very juicy and citric with bags of orangey character. Brimming with sharp bretty goodness and erm... thatís about it. Very one dimensional and generally too orangey for crows. I have another bottle so letís see how that goes.

kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Bottle courtesy of TampaBrew. Pours a hazy golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is grain, yeast, vinegar, overripe cherries, smoke, hints of wood and sweet fruits. Flavor is overripe fruit, funk, sour cherries, vinegar, some hints of floral esters. Medium body with a sour fruit finish. Interesting ale.

blklab2007 (2080) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 17, 2010
bottle through trade rating number 1000! color is a bright golden with a thin white froth at the surface and a fizzy carbonation cracking at the surface. aroma has medium acid, sweet white grape, light barrel wood, citrus rind, a little yeasty funk, and some almost fruity hits. absolutely wonderful and a rival to the best cuvee castleton bottles i have tried. mouth feel is light and crisp with just the right carbonation . flavor is firmly tart but there is a countering sweetness, dry white grapes, citrus, yeasty funk, peach skin, and a lingering dry finish. makes the mouth water and the sweet and acid play well with one another. this will be one I will remember for a while!

HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Bottle, courtesy of TampaBrew. Poured a hazy golden color with a fizzy white head. The nose is lemon peel, yeast, lacto, and funky brett. . Medium body with ample carbonation. Flavor is sour lemon, horse blanket, light pineapple esters, and some phenols. Fairly clean finishes sour.

vtafro (4501) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Yellow golden pour with light head. Well this is a nice sour, although would like to see LA actually try a true gueuze. Nice brett, tartness in the aroma and flavor, floral and citrus notes. After taste is overly astringent.

Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2010
C&C 750 mL bottle courtesy of bankhead. Thanks! Pours a pale hazy lemon yellow color with a medium creamy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Nice tart aroma with citrus, cherry and light funky notes. Taste is very tart with mild funk, cherries, green apple, citrus, caramel. Nicely carbonated, nicely balanced. Medium bodied.

trevor211 (1402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 1, 2010
Pours a hazy light orange with a thin film on top. Lemon meringue pie, grapefruit, and a ciderey vinegar on the nose. Flavor is great, but a little one-dimensional. I really wish this had a bit more depth to it. Itís sufficiently tart, but doesnít have the real barnyard funk Iíd expect from a gueuze, or anything with brett, for that matter. Nowhere near Isabelle, and a bit thin. That said, this is still really tasty - a good blend of citrus notes in the flavor profile, and itís certainly refreshing.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2010
courtesy of BA trader. pours golden hazy, thin fizzy white head. aroma mild tartness and notes of oak wood, mostly tart fruits and lactic with mellow grainy nose; wheat. flavor, just the right blend of sour/tart, leaving a mild acidic/funky character and tingly spicy oak on the palate. Some fruit elements of white grape, citrus fruits; mostly grapefruit/blood orange sourness. Not sure what the funk was, leaning on champagne yeast, but it appeared more of lactobacillus acidity giving a nice dry finish. Great finish and med-high carbonation.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - DEC 31, 2009
750mL bottle. Pours a hazy, honey-golden color; creamy white head with good retention and fine-bubbled lacing; very nice-looking pour. Pleasantly complex, funky, cobwebby aroma here: lots of tart citrus, gueuze-like notes of brett and aceto and mildly husky wheatiness; the complexity of the nose is much more significant than in mouth, certainly: generous funk and sourness and lemony notes; really lovely, and reminiscent of Isabelle. I was heavily concerned by some peopleís notes regarding the complexity of this beer: it really is lacking the intricacy and subtle malt and funk complexity at the core of many great lambics, but itís not like this is claiming to be anything other than an off-key homage to those beers (and it shouldnít matter anyway): this is delicious. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: lots of lemony and citrus tartness, cobwebs and a light woodiness, alongside some husky wheat character (a good sign) and plenty of well-developed funk; mouthwatering, medium-to-high acidity, and lots of funk; the sourness and acidity here really builds halfway into the glass: while this doesnít have the complexity of something like Blauw or Isabelle, it is gorgeous and nicely done, with some white wine vinous notes appearing, soft vanilla barrel character, and plenty of citrus through everything; a really nice, well-developed and heavily soured ale. Lasting finish of funk, citrus, brett and aceto and scraping wheat notes; very nicely dry and long-lasting funk. A very delightful, gueuze-like sour ale.

Ibrew2or3 (7361) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Pourd dark modestly opaque grapefruit juice with off white head. The aroma is lemon, acidity and little else. The taste is sharp with acidity and mild sourness. I really donít sense anything else going on in here and therefore lacks much interest or depth.
