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.

Batch 3 available on tap January 2016.

DDG pours a hazy golden color. It honestly looks like apple juice. No head is poured and no lacing. There are bubbles that shoot from the bottom of the glass to the top. Of course as you get deeper and deeper into the bottle that clearness goes away and becomes cloudy. Smell is all the way tart apples. It’s the number one thing I noticed. Tartness and sourness mixed together wonderfully. I also picked up some lemon, grass, citrus, and oak. The taste is more sour than I remember. It could be because of some of the age. This time around while my girlfriend liked it she didn’t quite love it. I ended up finishing almost the whole bottle by myself. I never have issues really finishing a whole bottle but when there is a sour ale involved it eventually gets pretty damn puckering. The sour and tart apples once again take front stage followed by barnyard funk, lemon, citrus, and a oaky finish. If I could describe this beer to someone I would say it’s Acidic, tart, funky, sour apple juice mixed in with wine like qualities. Mouthfeel is dry, mouth puckering, medium bodied, and acidic. Good carbonation.

Sampled from bottle (2013) @ "Het is allemaal de schuld van Koen" tasting. Hazy light orange color, small white head. Aroma is superb: very nice peach, sweet-sourish. Taste sourish, sour yellow fruits, unripe peach. Sour, slightly sharp finish. Suitable body and carbonation.

bytemesis (6589) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Sample at RateBeer best 2015. Pours hazy golden with a medium creamy white head that dissipates slowly with good lacing. Aroma is oaky, vinous, white wine, stonefruit, basement and horseblanket, dust. Flavor is medium tart, light plus funky. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. I have heard much dissing of this beer among the "bros" lately, but I found it to be delicate and lovely. Kudos.

tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2016
Bottle, many thanks to DJ Reakt, through the brewers’ network! First batch. Flat fairly lifeless carbonation. Is it Louis Roederer? Aroma is barnyard funk, wood, oak, red wine barrels. Taste is bone dry ala Frank Boon, soft malts. Absolutely bloody mesmerising.
