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.

TheAlum (7051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Sampled at FoBAB 2009. Pours a golden livey hue, nice light haze, decent whitish bubbly head that laces a bit. Aromas are sour, grapefruit and lemons, a nice bretty funk, wet wood and vanilla, but largely citrus acids. Light hay, graininess. The initial is light bodied with a powerful tartness that washes the palate. Lemon, grapefruit, zest, meld with lactic acid, hay and brettanomyces, a nice tart palate sticker with deep woody and barrel notes coming through. Tart, a bit spicy, vinegar-esque. I really enjoyed this, and can see age being kind to it overall.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 09. Knew this was going to be limited and I was pretty excited. Golden, cloudy pour with white head. Funky, citrusy and earthy aroma. Definitely strong sour flavor with citrus and funk. Really nice palate. This lives up to the hype: it was pretty amazing.

beernbourbon (1576) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB. Sample from bottle. Pour is cloudy yellow with medium white head. Aroma is funky, acidic, earthy, lemon, and barnyard. Flavor is sour up front with a subtle fruity sweetness. Finish is all funk. The most impressive part for me was how full the body was. A nice round flavor even with all the strong components. So good.

SrSilliGose (3328) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - NOV 8, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2009 FOBAB 09 - first beer of the day. poured from a bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. notes of lemony tartness, brett, barnyard, bread, earth, cobwebs. Dry, crisp, and refreshing, but i could go for more dryness (but that probably is unrealistic since this isnt really a gueuze.) very well balanced. Great beer!

sleestak (226) - Williamston, Michigan, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 09, poured from a bomber. Sample was hazy straw with a moderate white, lightly lacing head. Substantial citrus aromas augmented by da funk - musty, cheesy and straw. Flavor is acidic with strong lemony and brett notes. Dry finish and light body. My God, I could drink this perfectly balanced beast all day.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 09 (bottle). Im sure its been said before, but great name. Pours a hazed milky orange with a white head. Interesting aroma funky, hay, earthy, sweaty, with the sweet citrus and caramel malts. Wow super acidic flavors. citrussy grapefruit bile (not in a bad way), oaky, tarty, and fizzy on the back of my tongue. I didnt love this beer, but it developed well as the temperature rose. The acidity was a little much, but decent beer.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 8, 2009
FoBAB 2009 (bottle): 2nd beer of the day. Golden hue with a lively small frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of acidic lactic acid, light funk, sour lemons and pitty peaches, band-aid, oak, and some herbal spice. The taste is surprisingly smooth with moderate tartness and light funk, minerally and oaky finish. Some fruity components and quick dashes of herbs. The mouth feel is lively and quite refreshing, very mouth watering. Too bad this is not more closer to 4-5% ABV then I would say it is highly sessionable. All in all a great brew and I want more. Kudos Tomme and thanks for sending this our way!!!

bleeng (1668) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2009
Bottle thanks to me shared at the Oct Houston RB tasting. Pale yellow and clear. Nose is citrusy, tart, spicy and yeasty. Taste is very dry, puckery, very tart, grapefruity, spicy, complex. Light body and eminently drinkable. Delicious.

BuckeyeBoy (6545) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 29, 2009
2009 GABF Tasters and from a bottle late that week. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a small head. Aroma was citrus orange and lemon. Along with plenty funk and some light yeast. Taste was more of the citrus lemon and orange. Not the normal hop citrus. A good sour fruit pucker. I cant wait to try this one again.
