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 graciously shared by Trevor on the first night of BCTC. Had this sitting around a campfire surrounded by great people, which is often enough to make any beer good, but this one was rather fantastic all on itís own, living up to itís hype in my eyes. Pours a hazy light brown amber with a thin white head. Funky, sour lemons, hay, leather, and bright acid. Remarkably complex. Large acid and vinegar, not as hefty as some Cantillons, but certainly up there. Delicious, but does finish with a little bit of nail polish remover.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle at BCTC 2009: 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. Itís good minus the acetone/chemicalish character.

Death Metal Sour Fest. Thanks Naven. Sparkling clear like Martinelliís cider. And, what is this? Carbonation! Nice moves, Lost Abbey! A lot easier drinking than I had anticipated, which isnít a bad thing. Sour, a tiny bit sweet and provides instant heartburn (a good sign, relax).

Bomber. Pours a lovely, bubbly, orange-brown-yellow, with about two fingers of fast-dissolving head, and a kickiní sour aroma that I can feel from 10 - 12 inches away. As I get my nose closer, itís a sour bouquet of oranges, hyacinth, and overall sweetness. I have to admit, Iím psyched to have this beer as rating #100. Wow, my first taste is powerful. Itís starts out a little sour, and then goes straight green apple tart on me... lovely. Not really picking up the oak finish, but it doesnít matter, this is delightful. I agree with the prior rating about the pixie stix sweetness and explosion through the middle and end of the palate.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2009 Thanks to AlohaC for this one! Pours dark foggy golden with a thin white head. Tart citrus and sweet malt in the nose and flavor. Almost a pixie stix type of sweetness with a decent oak finish.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2009 re-rate, score bumps up a couple notches, with a couple more down the road, more funk and complexity with a better texture and finish from my 1st try of this on release. re-try at dasilky tasting dec 13 2009 Tons of upside. The oak and oak tannin are strong as they were on release for Issy. Sourness is just right with a light bit of funk. Should develope into a really nice brew over the next 9-12 months and last 10+ years. Preferred the phunky duck, a component, better but this is build to age. on draft at the x-mas in july release.

joet (2156) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUL 27, 2009
golden bordering on orange, citrus in the grapefruit range, excellent chilled - crisp and snappy, probably amazing with light acidic foods, never mind "complexity" - this is excellent straightforward sour, outstanding on its own but begging for food complement. a standout at RBSG 09.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JUL 27, 2009
On tap at the brewery during the July party. Hazy golden color with some white head. Great aromas of lemon and tartness. Solid but not overpowering sour qualities. Very tasty fruitiness of grapefruit and citrus. Great long finish and easy to drink. Excellent beer.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUL 27, 2009
Taster at the brewery. Slightly hazy gold color. Nice tart aroma, very similar to Phuncky Duck. Flavor had a very smooth tartness as well, not too puckering, I could easily drink alot of this, good stuff.

75 cl bottle, courtesy of AlohaC. Pours almost clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Shivering sourness. Crisp brett and fruity flavoured. Very vibrant. Dry and sour flavoured. Solid acetone dry finish. Lovely.
