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.

Special day, special beer. Big thanks to hapjydeuce for that bottle. Looks great, as well as the beer in the glass. Very sourish aroma. Starts quite mild with fruity notes of lemon and sour apple. The sourish notes become more and more aggressive. Finish sourish-woody, very intense. Warming aftertaste, prickly and scratchy. Very good beer!

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Holy crap I’m in Love w/ this beer. A cloudy off amber colored pour w/ a small head. Smells greatly funky but like a funked lemonade (lots of lemon zest). Palate was full and well puckering. The flavor was just phenomonal. Very complex pieces of many spices (clove/corriander/??) hints of lemon zest, peaches, and other fruits. all w/ a great sour component. Fantastic.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Sampled during MN Gathering 2.5 from 750 ml bottle and shared by tytoanderso. Pours a hazy golden straw colored brew with a decent white head that sticks around. Aroma of fresh horse blanket, a hint of manure, yeast, some lemon and enough funk to confuse any first time beer drinker. Taste is medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of tart citrus, some apricot, unripe pineapple, some peach and more yeast funk. Finish is tart as they come. some sour citrus, yeast, a hint of clove and some grapefruit. Happy to have tried this winner.

Nate (3553) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Sampled at the ’09 RBPTE, courtesy of Beerman6686. Heavy funky nose, sour with barnyard and horse blanket and just a great bouquet of Brett. Light hops and straw. Light amber murky-cloudy body with and off-white lacing head. Medium-thin body with lively carbonation. So funky and sour in the mouth, puckering. Acidic and delightful. Terrific sour ale and quite a treat on a hot day.

DalzAle (1904) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle. Appearance of hazy fresh lemonade and a great and super sour aroma. Flavor is tart lemon citrus and finished with some good funk last lasted on and on after swallowing. One worth getting if you like sours.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2009
750ml bottle shared by BOLTZ7555 – thanks Jason! Pours cloudy orangish gold with athin off-white head. The nose is sour citrus, light vinegar and aspirin. The taste is unripe apricot, citrus, malt vinegar and sour peaches. Medium prickly mouthfeel. Not much barrel presence but that’s ok – it’s really good anyway. Thanks again for sharing Jason!

beerguy101 (5267) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Sampled during RBSG 7/11/2009 at the Grand Tasting. This sour ale pours a medium orange gold color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is tart and funky. A medium to full bodied sour ale. The malts are fruity and sour, tart and funky. Lots of orange and orange peel flavors. Nicely funky. There is nothing wrong with the carbonation on this bottle. The lively carbonation adds to the sweet, sour, funky flavors. Nice balance. The finish si very nice; tart, dry and funky. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is tart and funky.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Pours dirty gold with a small bubbly white head that fades somewhat fast to a very small ring of foam. Aroma has all sorts of things going on: Sour lemons, oak, mustard, vinegar, dust, biscuits. Nice to see the extreme sour qualities mix with hints of a malt presence. Tastes bracingly tart at first with lemon and oak shining through, dust, mustard, toast, and earth. Finishes with an acidic sensation on the throat and flavors of toast, oak and old library books. Medium to light bodied ample carbonation, and very slick mouthfeel. Not a creamy beer, but I imagine that’s to style. Good stuff!

[Bottle] shared by tytoanderso. Pours cloudy gold with a small effervescent ring of foam. Aroma has sharp hints of acidity and tartness, funk, lemon, a touch of medicine, and gravel. Very tart and sour front, slick mouthfeel, some brett funk, lots of lemon, grapefruit, and a touch of bitterness. Overall a nice solid geuze and very refreshing.
