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.

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 thatís 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.

Pours a hazy, dark deep golden yellow color with lighter golden ripe banana hues when held to a light source and a 1.5 finger frothy white head tat slowly fades into a lasting cap. Earthy funk aroma with lots of awesome horseblanket barnyard notes. Slightly lactic with a nice light fruit presence. Iím picking up some light strawberry notes along with some vinegar and earthy oak. Tart and very puckering with some strong acidity. Lots of barnyard horseblanket funk with some nice golden fruit notes. Apple, pear, white grape and some strawberry and cream. Extremely dry and sour and very refreshing. Nice earthy oak presence with subtle vanilla characteristic. Pretty well balanced with pleasant light fruit nuances that counter the extremely sour funky notes. Bone dry sour puckering finish. Actually pretty drinkable after the initial palate shock. Probably not worth the $30 price tag but still very good. Recommended.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Really amazing beer...without doubt, one of the best, most drinkable and complex sours Iíve tried (and Iíve had my share). Cloudy honey pour with an amazing amount of carbonation for the style producing a 1/4 inch ivory head that diminishes to a ring. Aroma of peaches, balsamic, citrus rind, and grapes. Flavor doesnít show the typical "barnyard" qualities...instead combining tart, sweet, and fruitiness. Green apple Jolly Ranchers, lemongrass, apricot, and grapefruit...balanced and incredible.

Bottle Ė Shared by ygtbsm94 . Thanks Brad! Bright hazed golden yellow, thick white creamy head. Funked wood and sour citrus aromas ride a soft undercurrent of hay and vinegar. Deep citric acidity is well textured on lightly soured layers of barnyard and oak. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, mouth puckering acidic finish. Really enjoyable...

marcus (6578) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 14, 2009
This dark golden beer poured with a thin off-white head and sour fruit aroma. Now this really tastes like a lambic gueuze. Itís fruity and sour with a long dry finish that features a nice yeasty feeling.

This was fantastic - especially after an exhausting week. Hazy ORange body with a thin head. The aroma was pure tart citrus with some barnyard in there. A similar body with a fantastic sour character. Excellent, but no proximus.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Bottle shared at Duck Duck Fuck Party. Pours an orange body with a thin white lacing into my solo cup. Tart soured peach and citrus. Funky oak and light vinegar with a nice puckering finish. To bad i was real drunk when i had this. Cheers to the re-rate coming soon. 4.0 Bottle. Hazy golden body with a white head. Funky, citrus, peach, and grapefruit. Funky floral brett, and lemon pucker. Vinous and cab like to some extent. Mild acidity with a mouthwatering effervescent aroma. Nice. 4.1
