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.

Batch 3 available on tap January 2016.

ClarkVV (6296) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Draught at EBF Pre-Fest party at Eataly, 2/2/17.
Lightly to minimally hazy, bright goldenrod-brass body is topped by a good-sized white head that slowly fades to cover.
Brett adds plentiful lime, light band aid and lots of sweat in the nose, as the funk slowly deepens as it breathes. Lactic and very light acetic acids provide a "lambic-y" character, though it still smells a bit more like an American Wild ale than true lambic. Lots of oak, though its not overdone, with vanilla, light wood and plentiful malt behind it. No alcohol or flaw.
In the mouth, Im immediately surprised at how malty it is. Not too sweet, but definitely one of the sweeter wild ales Ive had in a while. Tons of rich honey mixes with moderate oak, Brett-derived citrus and tropical fruits and a bit stronger lactic-acetic acidity on the finish. Soft, malty texture with tight carbonation and no alcohol or flaw. Rating is against a "American Sour/Wild" not a Belgian Lambic.

On tap @ FoBAB 2016. Pour is hazy golden yellow with a small white head that fades quickly. Notes of big sour funk, honey, leather, oak, white grapes, and a bit of vinegar. Finish has some light fruit and big sour mash.

mariuspoenari (2082) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle shared by some guys at Cantillon. Hazy orange pour, with a white head. Notes of dank cellar, cobwebs, peaches, wild funk, light cognac, whiskey barrel, a bit of vanilla. Quite a bit different than lambic beer, but really good.

TimE (5528) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2017
tons of horse blanket, muscat and funky sourness. Low carbonation, dry lots of horse blanket. Super smooth and Sour. wow. Just big and funky. Super well put together that it was almost too refined for the style. It would be like if the Germans decided to make a geueze this is what it would be like.

Hoprider (552) - DENMARK - JAN 2, 2017
2016 bottle. Pours an almost clear orangy yellow with almost no head. The nose has vinegar apricot and lemon juice, barrel notes especially to begin with. The taste has the same fruity vinegary qualities and a juicy aftertaste. Solid first beer of the year.

Bottle 2013 shared thanks to kermis! Hazy darker golden with small white head. Quite some lactic notes up front, light apricot, dry yoghurt, light white wine, gooseberries, dry herbs. Light lactic sweetness with slight vinegar sourness thats slightly sharp. Medium bodied. Good beer, but quite far from a decent gueuze.

From notes. Enjoyed this during the 2nd Annual Kellys Island Bottle Share on September 18. 750 mL bottle. Batch 3. The pour is a nice clear darker golden yellow with a thick, bright white head that falls down quickly. The aroma is really nice. There is a great citrus, apple skin, and funk right up front. There is a lighter dusty barnyard and a hint of horse blanket that rolls in on the finish. Its just a little too acidic. The flavor is awesome. The white wine is light and crisp with a lovely citrus sourness. There is a lightly acidic gueuze that lasts for days. The funk and apple skins are really good, and the dustiness swells a little more than Id like. The mouth feel is light and crisp with a great carbonation and a lingeringly tart and funky finish. This is really good, but I wish it were more citrus based on the sour.

Alengrin (4999) - BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2016
Lost Abbeys famed sour ale, a coupage of young and old beer, only released for a couple of times and a tribute to Belgian lambic culture. Shared by 77ships at Hopishops B.U.M.B., thanks! Lightly lacing, medium sized, egg-white head quickly thinning, hazy golden blonde robe. Beautiful aroma of sour cream, unripe gooseberry, wild apples, unsugared yoghurt, limoncello, damp hay, pickled apricots, dry white wine, stale sweat, wet wood. Lemony sourness in the onset, lots of green berries and unripe stonefruit, green apple, even red wine vinegar-like, very light salty touch somewhere, lightly bready, pleasantly fluffy middle, a tad soapy, smooth and perfectly dried by the ongoing sourness which becomes softer and more lactic and yoghurty towards the end, where it meets drying wood tannins and a spicy phenolic accent. Its easy to see the hype here, this is among the most gracious, elegant and rich examples of new Anglo-Saxon sour ale I had so far - but it clearly is not a lambic.

Shared at Hopishop 2016, thank you! Aroma of tart, horseblanket, hay and funk. Taste has nice tart, mild sourness, horseblanket, funk, soft oaky vanilla, barnyard and a long finish. Really good.
