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.

Got to try some of this thanks to, "hannont". Colour... light golden-straw with no head. Nose... acetic and citric with a slightly astringent quality. Palate... PUCKER FACTOR!! I think my sphincter just puckered-up, too! Geez, my salivary glands are on overload! Gobs of apple cider vinegar, lemon, quince, kiwi skin, alum and one incredibly long, tart finish! Woo!!

DietPepsican (1526) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JAN 27, 2010
light, murky amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is heavily oaked with lemons and funk. Flavor is lemons, oak, orange citrus, a touch of nail polish remover. Finishes very clean for the style, minimal funk. Minimal carbonation kind of brings this one down a tad.

emacgee (4377) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2010
Thanks smokepot23. Pours a bright cloudy peach amber with a one finger frothy white head. Nose is estery and fruity, peachy, some fingernail polish, phenolic. Flavor is tart and acidic, phenolic, fingernail polish remover, yeasty. Palate is one dimensional and tart. Very nice upfront but quickly sinks into a single dimension wraught with phenols.

thirdeye11 (5780) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 23, 2010
( 750ml bottle thanks to mar) Pours murky orange with creamy head and nice lacing. Nose is funky, Belgian yeast, spices, and sour cherries. Taste is very tart (puckeringly so), cherries and cranberries with some light funk. Palette is nicely carbonated, tart, and refreshing/creamy.

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 (2092) - 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!

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 (4836) - 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.

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.
