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, thanks to danielcurtis81 for sharing the day after his wedding (don’t you have a honeymoon to be on bud?). Pours cloudy/hazy yellow/brown with lots of bubbles and faint white head. Nose is strong sour, wild yeast, vinegar, funk. Taste is sharp and dry sour, with hints of apples and vinegar. Very tart and slightly citrus as well. Almost a little spicy at times...a very solid sour style.

GABF2009 - man, this beer is acetic as hell - the nose is all funky, earthy, leathery, oaky goodness - but the acetone kind of takes over in the flavor, washing out a lot of the cheesy funk, melon rind, lemony tartness, tangy wheat, oak - all of that stuff is there, and it’s delicious, but the acetic/vinegar qualities are a bit too much, keeping them from shining through - still a wonderful experience, though.

On tap at Stone Sourfest 09. Hazy orange pour. Aroma is funky, bleu cheese, barnyard, and very tart. Nice carbonation with a good mouthfeel

Sampled at GABF 2009. Pale yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma of sour lemon, vinegar, and funk. Flavors are sour tart lemon and bready yeast. An awesome beer.

badgerben (4575) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Skyview Tasting 2.5. Courtesy of Tyler. Cloudy yellow color with no head. Very tart, barnyardy aroma. Strong, tart lemon and wheat flavor. A little more oak than I’m used to in lambics, which is not a bad thing at all. A bit of graininess comes through. Yum.

Incredible nose. Tart cherry, sour apple, barnyard funk. Wood notes. Thanks to whoever brought this to Skyview’s tasting. I’m not a sour freak but this was quite solid!

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate lemon, orange, peach, and sour apple. It pours a cloudy dull orangish-yellow with a small white head that fades to a thin ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts with tart lemons with a hint of citrus. The finish has light sour apple and some faint oak notes. Medium bodied with mild carbonation

kappldav123 (5368) - GERMANY - SEP 25, 2009
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 (2569) - 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 (5283) - 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.
