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.

This was fantastic - especially after an exhausting week. Hazy ORange body with a thin head. The aroma was pure tart citrus with some barnyard in there. A similar body with a fantastic sour character. Excellent, but no proximus.

UPDATED: NOV 6, 2009 Bottle shared at Duck Duck Fuck Party. Pours an orange body with a thin white lacing into my solo cup. Tart soured peach and citrus. Funky oak and light vinegar with a nice puckering finish. To bad i was real drunk when i had this. Cheers to the re-rate coming soon. 4.0 Bottle. Hazy golden body with a white head. Funky, citrus, peach, and grapefruit. Funky floral brett, and lemon pucker. Vinous and cab like to some extent. Mild acidity with a mouthwatering effervescent aroma. Nice. 4.1

Young 750ml bottle, courtesy Morgan Fishback. Each pour yields a progressively more hazy, golden-orange hue to the body. A small, foamy, snow white head rests at the surface. Lacing fails to harden, a soap wash quickly rejoining the pool below after each sip. The aroma is just what I was hoping for, a very lambic-like profile of fruity, citric acidity and funky barrel notes. Soured apricot and nectarine are prominent, as are tart grape skins, kumquat, soft oak, and something I can only describe as "clean barnyard" air. Having alot to live up to, the flavor does not disappoint. Big apricot and juicy grapefruit acidity are massaged by soft, supple oak, with a musty yeast profile that mirrors that of some of the Payottenlands finest. Simply stated, the palate is perfect. Deliciously dry, with puckering citrus acidity, theres just a hint of residual sugar that serves to lend a bit of welcomed heft. Carbonation is soft, yet persistent, steadily pushing the tartness towards the back of the tongue. This stuff is ridiculously good at a young age, and is sure to improve to near perfection after a year or two. A simply masterful creation.

Amazing aroma. Sour. Brett. Oak. My goodness. This beer is blowing me away. All the people down on Lost Abby these days over the stupid issue of carbonation...you must drink this. Just smell it in the glass. Fantastic.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2009
Bottle from suprisingly carbonated tomme. Straw colored with abnormally good carbonation for a tomme brew. Like a wheat brew with brett. Dont know what all the hypes about. Average.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2009
750ml bottle... Semi-hazy lemony orange brown with a soapy thin white head... Solid aroma and very gueuze like with sharp vinegar, hay, and lemony goodness. Completely drinkable with a sharp acidic bite to the finish. Tremendously solid and completely palatable.

Where the Wild Beers Are @ The Gate 8/30/09. Pale yellow with ring. Barn hay horseballs grapefruit aroma. Grapfruit horseballs hay melon with very dry finish. Very nice effervescence. Friggin incredible. Thanks Dennis, whoever you are.

tokyogoat (1503) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Poured a slightly hazy, but bright yellow. Nose was bright with fruit, peach, lemon, orange zest. Taste was fairly sour, nice citrus tart up front, funky and bretty in the middle, and finishes with a warming hint of vinegar.

From a bottle, thanks to radhoesbro. Pours a faintly hazt apricot with a meager head. Nose is a bit salty, with some very distinguishable round, fruit tones I find in most Lost Abbey sours. Nice, but nothing explosive. Kind of a peachy, apricot aroma. Flavor is initially quite salty, which is my overall complaint with Vereitas 004, but it quickly melds into a very nice progression into a full peachy note. Very sour and tart, and a very well-intregrated funky brett. I like this quite a bit. I disagree that it cant stand up to classic Belgian lambics, as it is more robust and full in my opinion. Carbonation is medium and is perfect for the style. Very nice, maybe the best from Lost Abbey Ive had.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle at WTWBA. One of the better American sour examples, but even this could not stand up to the Belgian classic lambics. When is Tomme going to make a real gueuze?

This one is funky, dry, sour, with mild chocolate in the aroma and a touch of wheat for body. Very sour, vinegary, and nutty, much like a lot of Captain Lawrence stuff. Fairly light, chewy, and mild. Actually rather (real) gueuze like, with a fresh, young effervescence joined with a old, seasoned funkiness; it just doesnt have the vitality and sparkle to stand up to the big boys.
