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.

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.

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 (2879) - 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.

On tap at lost abbey christmas in july. This is a really tasty sour. Pous is a cloudy golden orange, with frothy white head. Citrus, grass, leather, sourness, tart apple, and some oak and grape.

Naven (1000) - Poway, California, USA - JUL 25, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2009 On tap. Much lighter in color and aroma than I expected. Flavor is predictably sour, with lots of vinegar, salt and a touch of white wine. Aroma was nasty. You call it funky, I call it diaper. This was better than other sours I have had, but a couple ounces and I moved on.

Fantastic. Light sour beers are by far my favorite beer today. Lots of flavor and yet still easy to drink. DDG has a fairly high acidity, consisting of mostly lactic acid, but with a wonderful level of acetic acid, much like cider vinegar. No floor cleaner ethyl acetate that I don’t like, which I’m now thinking is only present in high ABV sours. A bit of lemon. Some throat burn like grapefruit juice. Another LA hit along the lines of CC, Isabelle, and YB. I could easily be fooled into thinking I was drinking one of these. Excellent formula for success.

On tap; poured a hazy gold color with a smallish white head, that did last a while. Aroma wasn’t overly assertive with some funk, yeast, lemon and perhaps some citrus snuck in there. Flavor was very solid, if not amazing. Funky and lemon, with not a huge amount of sourness (or maybe I am getting more used to sour beers). Very nice beer.

1 pint glass at the brewery. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma is mild with citrus, pineapple, melons and some funk. The flavor is overtly sour with citrus(lemon and grapefruit), melons, walnuts and sour grapes. The mouthfeel is silky smooth with lively carbonation. The finish is long with lingering sour lemons. Overall: It does not blow you away, its not a big beer, but still it captivates your interest and you want to keep coming back for more.
