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.

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.

Shared with a friend who waited in line a few months back. Perfect example. Sour earthy hay barnyard, green apple sour dough great carbonation. An absolute dream.

Bottle@Gothenburg-tasting. Apperance: Yellow with a white head. Aroma: Citric notes, Funk, Brett, Hay. Taste: Citric notes, White bread, Hay, Wheat. Palate: High carbonation and some tartness. Goes down easy! A really good american-sour but not worth the chase for us europeans with easy access to 3F and Cantillon.

Bottle from 2013. Aroma of fruity jam with some acidity. Fruity, sour taste. Really balanced. Tasty. Tastes better than I thought it would.

Very happy I finally got to try this beer. 2013 vintage. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are both awesome. In the aroma I get some lemon and biscuit malt notes as well as some light tartness. The flavor is also great but is more complex. I get some acidic lemon notes at first but things then get interesting. I get a little bit of light funk as well as some light cheesy notes, some alcohol, pepper and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. An awesome sour beer.

An absolutely phenomenal beer. One of those beer experiences that sticks with you. Aromas are intense sour lemon and other citrus. Flavors are lemon juice and just sour goodness. Smooth palate. You can taste the love this was made with.

Bottle, thanks to Nick, tasted on 01/31/2014. Pours dark golden orange, clear, light haze on the surface, thin ring of lacing. Aroma is tart lemon, apricots, sweet hay, vanilla, moderate barnyard funk, touch acetic, wood. Taste is bracing tart lemon, very acetic, vinegar, slick citrus overtones, vanilla, wood, sharp funk. Light body, dry. Not my favorite, but decent American sour.

czar (3805) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
bottle shared by tom10101, many thanks dude. pours hazy light yellow with a small whtie cap, some retention and lacing. moderate funk, white grapes, slightly buttery, nice fruitiness - pears and peaches, grass, herbs, wood - hint of vanilla, hint of sweetness - candi-like, medium acidity - lactic, acetic and citric - almost puckering. average to moderate carbonation, light body - oily, silky mouthfeel, dry and tart grassy-herbal-citrusy finish. nice interpretation. just a little something missing, perhaps funk, or some almost overwhelming components like acetic acid and diacetyls, for it to be worldclass. still.. it is tasty and good.

Huge thanks to tom10101 for sharing this one, thanks again Tommy! This rating is for a bottle from batch 2. Pours a nice golden with a small white rim that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity and acidic, a bit of acetic acid but mostly just lactic. It feels like a genuine gueuze and begs for a taste. Taste is indeed tart and puckering, full of peaches and apricots. There is some slightly distracting acetic acid but other than that it is really enjoyable. Body is light, carbonation medium. Really nice and definitely a top-10 american sour.
