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.

Batch 3 available on tap January 2016.

Travlr (21441) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle courtesy of tarheels86 - thanks GT! Cloudy golden with very thin white head. Aroma of seawater and hay. Flavor begins with sweetish lemon and progresses to a salty, vinegar type of funk. Interesting and complex, but slightly thin. Good, but not outstanding.

750mL Shared by Glenn at a little local tasting. Had this side by side with Cuvee de Tomme. This poured a light grain yellow with little head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of citric, grain, yeast, and slight astringent. Flavor was pretty sour, but not in the league of la folie or beatification. Smooth and tasty. I was glad I got to taste this. And this is definitely my favorite beer bottle of all time.

TURDFERGUSON (4046) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Had this back in July and again earlier this week shared by Glenn. This is a solid American sour, but it’s just very messy. Acetic, nail polish remover, vinegar torture the palate which seems much too heavy for the "style."

MeadMe (1602) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2010
My favorite label of all time. A: Light straw yellow hue with a nice white head. Light retention with some mild lace. S: Lots of citrus, mild funky cheesy notes, with hints of earth and hay. T: Citrus forward in flavor as well. Nice zippy lemony tartness leads the way. Lactic acid, peaches, apricots, and light oak notes. M: On the lighter side of medium. Nice light tingly carbonation. D: Darn tasty.

neepsntatties (1763) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 27, 2010
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 (1586) - @ $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 (4611) - 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 (6064) - 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 O’s 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. Don’t get me wrong though, it’s 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... that’s about it. Very one dimensional and generally too orangey for crows. I have another bottle so let’s 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.
