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.

Cornfield (5570) - 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.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2009
FOBAB 2009. Poured a cloudy yellow color. Aroma was fresh lemon juice, acidic, and earthy funk. Taste was much the same, more lemon, hay, grapefruit citrus, with a very dry and crisp finish. Nothing crazy complex, but very well put together and a nice refreshing sour for sure. Bright flavors throughout that are lively in the mouth. Fun to drink.

hombrepalo (1929) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2009
FoBAB 2009. My fave of the event. Cloudy yellowish golden with a wispy white film. Nice bretty aroma with bright lemony acidity, as well as acetic acidity with rustic leathery character also. Slick acidic body. Some mild acetone in the flavor with vinegary and lemony tartness. Underlying bretty earthy flavors of cherry pit and leather. It’s good minus the acetone/chemicalish characters. Loved it!

TheAlum (6193) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Sampled at FoBAB 2009. Pours a golden livey hue, nice light haze, decent whitish bubbly head that laces a bit. Aromas are sour, grapefruit and lemons, a nice bretty funk, wet wood and vanilla, but largely citrus acids. Light hay, graininess. The initial is light bodied with a powerful tartness that washes the palate. Lemon, grapefruit, zest, meld with lactic acid, hay and brettanomyces, a nice tart palate sticker with deep woody and barrel notes coming through. Tart, a bit spicy, vinegar-esque. I really enjoyed this, and can see age being kind to it overall.

HonkeyBra (3704) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 09. Knew this was going to be limited and I was pretty excited. Golden, cloudy pour with white head. Funky, citrusy and earthy aroma. Definitely strong sour flavor with citrus and funk. Really nice palate. This lives up to the hype: it was pretty amazing.

beernbourbon (1379) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB. Sample from bottle. Pour is cloudy yellow with medium white head. Aroma is funky, acidic, earthy, lemon, and barnyard. Flavor is sour up front with a subtle fruity sweetness. Finish is all funk. The most impressive part for me was how full the body was. A nice round flavor even with all the strong components. So good.

SrSilliGose (3309) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 8, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2009 FOBAB 09 - first beer of the day. poured from a bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. notes of lemony tartness, brett, barnyard, bread, earth, cobwebs. Dry, crisp, and refreshing, but i could go for more dryness (but that probably is unrealistic since this isn’t really a gueuze.) very well balanced. Great beer!

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 09. Pour bright clean golden with a white head. Lots of cheesy tart and light oak character all through this . Yummy stuff.

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB ’09, poured from a bomber. Sample was hazy straw with a moderate white, lightly lacing head. Substantial citrus aromas augmented by da funk - musty, cheesy and straw. Flavor is acidic with strong lemony and brett notes. Dry finish and light body. My God, I could drink this perfectly balanced beast all day.

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 09 (bottle). I’m sure its been said before, but great name. Pours a hazed milky orange with a white head. Interesting aroma funky, hay, earthy, sweaty, with the sweet citrus and caramel malts. Wow super acidic flavors. citrussy grapefruit bile (not in a bad way), oaky, tarty, and fizzy on the back of my tongue. I didn’t love this beer, but it developed well as the temperature rose. The acidity was a little much, but decent beer.
