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.

My Bottom Line:
Citrus fruit and white wine barrels are awash in acetic and citric acid, while chewy wheat succeeds in providing diversity.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy blond.
-The nose on this one is as intense as a Hanssens Oude Gueuze, to give you an idea. Maybe not as complex, but thatís quite the aromatic wallop nonetheless!
-The soft, natural carbonation helps the mouthfeel greatly.
-Drinkability is quite low because of the acetic intensity.
-The finish lasts as long as their Framboiseís (which is very intense).

Bottle.

Bottle sent to me by Thome50, also sampled some of this at RBSG thanks to Brokensail. Appearance is yellow with lively white head. Aroma is very lactic, with lemon, peach, pineapple, and barnyard funk. Taste is a burst of lactic sourness, followed by some dry funk. Medium mouthfeel, lively carb, and a crisp tart finish. This is excellent, quite sour but also bursting with tart fruit flavour.

Waited in line a while ago to get this forty back a bottle brew. Really tart and peachy with some slight salt.mtge salt was not distracting more of an added dimension. Really nice sour gueze characteristics. Tart lactic oak and funk.

Bottle to glass. Thanks Jazz! Aroma is citrus, tart, fleshy fruits. Flavor packs a wonderful tart fleshy fruits, citrus. Super sour body lingering long into the finish. Definitely one of the best sours around.

Salmoniform (1179) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Orange hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is lactic, peach, straw, lemon. Mouthfeel is great with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweet followed by a tart sourness throughout. Overall this is a fantastic brew!

Steasy66 (1021) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2014
At Good, Bad, Ugly tasting 2014. Minimal aroma, hints of tart lemon. Flavor is tart, lemony, overly sweet if we are trying to call this a Geuze. Hints of funk but not overly complex. There is just something I donít get with LA sours. Drank a fresh 3F OG next to this and there is no comparison.

bursprak (931) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2014
750 ml bottle split 4 ways. Pour is darkish golden with a tiny head that leaves beautiful lacings on top. Nose has some vanilla, loads of funk, citrus and some earthy notes. Taste is just wonderful with an epic balance between the funky and sweet notes. Lots barrel character, vanilla, tannins and leather. Awesome sour which lives up to itís reputation!

RasmusOtt (1353) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Matt Preis. Thanks! Pours hazy amber with a quick disappearing fizzy head. Aroma has lots of juicy citrusy notes along with some vinegar, funky barnyard, deep and rather moldy oak and some grapes (both green and some red). I also get a tiny hint of vanilla which is attached to the oak. Very refreshing and inviting aroma. The taste is tart and rather dry with notes of sour vinegar, sour citrus fruits, vanilla, deep oak grapes, dry funk and a very juicy feel to it. Almost some tropical fruits in here as well. Really really refreshing and drinkable american sour! Glad to have tried this!

2013, 75 cl bottle. Pours hazy yellow-amber with a Tiny, White head. Aroma has fresh, dry wood, slight vanilla, tart grapes, slight hops, tannins, vinegar. Taste is Nice both sour and bitter, tart, some vanilla sweetness, oak dryness. Fizzy, crisp carb despite no head. Fresh but still really tasty! Yummi! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
