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.

Bottle. Aroma of pineapple, lemon, grass, hay, horseblanket, herbs. Flavor continues to be funky, tart from many different angles, complex, tangy, sweet-sour notes to go with the straight sour. A joy.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2009
750 ml bottle- I think shared by Yobdoog at BCTC. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a fizzy somewhat lasting white head. Aroma is lemon-tart candies, lactic acid, funky brett, barnyard, somewhat gueuze-like with surprisingly slight acetic vinegar like quality found in funky duck. Flavor is nicely sour- almost mouth puckering with sour lemon, slight sour peach, sour warhead candy, yeasty and phenolic, with some strange esters and acids, yet stays fairly clean throughout with a nice sour finish. Really nice.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 Bottle thanks to Smokepot (thanks Joe!). Rating #1500!! Pours a cloudy yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma is quite sour-- some barnyard, some sour candies. Flavor of much of the same -- lots of tart candies and mild barnyard. Sour but not acidic. Very pleasant and easy to drink for a sour ale. Excellent! 8/4/8/4/16 [4.0/5]

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2009
hazed glowing yellow body, small white head. intensely strong nose of sulfuric and fatty lacto, strongly and excessively caustic. what seems like caproic and isobutryic acid are both far too strong, giving it that sweaty, fatty and rancid scent that tends to play nice when itís produced at a level low enough that the malt and wheat and especially the brettanomyces can play a little more. instead itís overtly lactic and reminds me of moldy pineapple and rubber. not to say itís bad, it just fits so perfectly into this new world lambic/sour paradigm that US brewers seem to like - make the beer more accessible to american palates by forgoing nauce and complexity and wow the audience with bigger, bolder, more acidic brute force. itís overly acidic and overly citrus-like without the roundness and delicateness of a true belgian lambic. itís a clever trick, really, and kudos for them for knowing their customers and knowing what will grab their attention. for the rest of us, this beers comes across as an adolescent grasp for attention, a loud and ugly display of beefy, fatty sourness with subtlety, nuance and most-importantly flavor all suffering. the characteristic lost abbey filmy and waxy texture of their yeast is noticeable, though thankfully itís less of a nuisance than in beers such as proximus, vertias 4 and red poppy. still it tends to muddle this beer and mask what may be a more interesting beer were it not so turbid (and this after being extremely careful with the pour, knowing how easily lost abbey yeast can neutralize the beer). overall an interesting beer that falls short of what I would consider good, but at this point I know that Iím not the intended audience.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle. Not bad, by any stretch, but lacking the finesse i like in my sours. Very down the middle sourness, with some messy edges to it. Tart, sour, apple and lemon acidity, with a good amount of funk. Sweet and sour in flavour, lots of acidity.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2009
Bottle at chris_oís "smash Kookís granny tasting". Alround rating: Sour acidic yeasty chatacter, a bit woody, citrusy lemon(subtle), carbonation is lacking a bit which is strange for someone who donesnt like carbonation. But alround i was soo looking forward to this beer and was massivly disapointed by it, just lacks the complexity and cleanness needed in a sour.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2009
FoBAB 2009. This poured a slightly hazed straw body with a small frothy head. The aroma was lemony and funky with an acidic tartness. The flavor had the addition of tart nectarines, oak, wet hay, and citrus rinds. Very sooth and refreshing, wild but not crazy.
