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.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2010 GABF 2009 and again in bottle in October 2010. Pours hazy yellow with a small, fizzy white head, somewhat diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, hay, straw), average hop (flowers, herbs), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard, earth) with notes of grape, wine, and wood. Medium bodied, mineral texture, lively carbonation, and a sour finish. Long duration, light sweetness, heavy acidity and sourness.

Big thanks to beachbum1975 for sharing this gem. 750ml corked and caged brown bottle poured into a GLBC snifter. A: Pours a cloudy but bright grapefruit skin color. Decent sized pearly white head with good retention. Decent lacing. S: Funky and sour notes, acidic. Old sweaty gym socks and hockey locker room, lol. Not much cheese but some on the back end. T/M: Not a ton of sour and tartness, more subtle in the back. Nice subtle, yet complex funkiness. Not as big of the gym sock aroma but still there. Some light colored fruits in the base that lend some great flavors and a bit of acidity. Body is medium to medium light with good carbonation. Some barrel flavors with mostly a leathery taste. D: Drink pretty damn easy.

750 ml corked and caged bottle purchased mail order from Geoi at South Bay in Imperial Beach, California. Cork opens with a soft pop. Served out of the wine fridge at approximately 55 degrees in my Boulevard Saison tulip. Pour is mostly clear golden with a one inch white head that falls quickly. There is visible fine carbonation bubbles descending in a column from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is soft tart lemons, bright acidity, gentle oak vanilla and a nice funkiness layered on top of all of that. Soft, tart, complex, inviting nose. Taste is leathery funkiness, followed closely by the tart lemon, there is a sweetness to the taste that is reminiscent of lemon sugar. In the back, the oak wood vannilla taste is pretty bright, and transitions smoothly from the funk and tart at the front. As with the nose, the taste is soft and quite well integrated. Palate has active carbonation, sharp acidity, and drying in the finish. Mouth watering tartness - makes another sip a requirement. Really nicely done. I picked up on the oak more this time around, otherwise similar to how I remember. (8,4,9,4,18 - 4.3)

750 ml bottle courtesy of mreusch. Pour is orange copper ruby, hazed with a smallish white head that falls fast. Aroma of sour lemon, earth and wood barrel. Nicely integrated, soft nose. Taste is lemon citric sour, followed by earthiness all framed in by a mild oak barrel woodiness. Soft, gentle really nicely sour and complex. Palate is soft, very fine carbonation, really gentle mellow gradual finish. Wow, nice. Thanks Matt. (8,4,9,5,17 - 4.3)

750ml bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden yellow with a nice bright white cap. Aroma is lovely, with a nice blend of sour and acid notes, citrus, funk, yada, yada. All wonderfully in harmony. Flavor is also tasty, with more sour, acid and funk, some citrus peel and grape skin. Another nice one, and oh so close to Isabelle but misses it by a hair. Excellent stuff!

JK (6090) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2010 Cloudy orange. Lots of yeast, and immediately recognizable as a lambic. Sour and acidic. Very low carbonation. While the flavor, yeast, and sourness are right, it really isnt sour enough and for the prices they charge, this still isnt as good as Cantillon. But it is still a very good, sour beer.

9/26/09 notes: on tap, GABF. Id still love to get hold of a bottle of this, but for now this review will do. Nose is funky, with mixed underripe green and fuji apple. Flavor has nice residing sourness, an appley sourness that is bolstered by horsey flavors, a touch of wood (but not musty), and acetic acid. Very, very enjoyable, and glad to see this beer live up to the hype surrounding it.
