750 ml bottle sharred with 4 other BA's, Big thanks to Kevin for bringing this beer.
A- Pours a Brown golden straw color, absolutely no carbonation at all, really hazy.
S- Really mellow aroma, cardboard, slight notes of fruit, peach, apricot, lemon, nothing really comes out in the aroma overall, slight acidic notes, sour, the nose was a little disappointing.
T- The taste was the complete opposite, really acidic, love the strong sour notes that come out, really puckering, apricot, vinegar, sour grape skin, nice taste.
M- Really dry, medium mouth feel, no carbonation, nice puckering taste.
O- Very impressed with this beer, this has been on my top wants for some time, love the acidity, and the fruity notes that come out, would love to have another opportunity to drink this beer.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into my Night Shift teku glass. 2013 vintage. Huge thanks to Tomme for sending this to me, I'm beyond honored.
Pours a deep golden-orange with a frothy, roughly one-inch off-white head. Decent head retention, no lacing to speak of.
In the nose, a massive dose of wet, yogurty lactobacillus funk dominates the initial whiff, as well as notes of white grapes, oak, dry yeast, crabapple, and a subtle hit of vinegar. Not getting the red wine barrels so much--there's definitely a vinous quality, but it doesn't remind me of any red I've ever had.
The taste is where Duck Duck Gooze really flexes its muscles. Yogurty funk, vinous white grape, lemon juice, dry bready yeast, white oak, crabapple, and tart Granny Smith apples. Again, a small hit of vinegar towards the back. Most excellent.
On the tongue, fairly dry and medium-bodied. Sprightly carbonation enlivens the palate but falls a bit flat towards the back. A lingering coat of yogurty lactic sourness clings to the back of the throat.
On the whole, what truly impressed me about DDG was its ability to present a bevy of delicious flavor profiles that managed to be at once distinct unto themselves as well as graceful partners to the other notes present in the beer. A fantastic beer, and one that I'm incredibly grateful to have gotten to try.
