Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: illidurit on 07-13-2009

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, this has been one of our most sought after beers year after year since it’s original release in 2009.

Alas, it is released in very small quantities only once every three years, so it’s extremely difficult to come by beyond the day we release it. It does, however, turn up on our Tasting Room’s Vintage List from time to time, so don’t despair.

Pours a transparent golden color, bubbles floating to the top, thin limited white head. The nose has a fair bit of sourness and acidity, light leathery brett, an earthy funk, touch of tangerine and tangy peach. The earthy funk is there with some barrel presence, hints of vanilla, the peach is sour, extremely high acidity and burns the throat. The feel is full bodied and heavy, grainy on the throat, dry, under carbonated.

Bottle (2009)

Thanks for this one, Jerz and ZX6Chris!

(Aged for 2 years)

Clear golden with lots of visible, active carbonation and a thin near-white head. Spots of lace are left down the glass.

A hugely aromatic sour consisting of bright, vibrant juicy lemons and a tart, biting, strong sour tartness. As the beer warms, more barnyard funk aromas present complementing the strong citrus (lemon) and sourness.

The flavor follows the aroma very similarly. The dominant flavor is of funky yeast and strong lemons, complemented by a high level of sourness throughout. Complete, and while aggressive, very drinkable.

Thin to medium bodied with high carbonation. Incredibly easy to drink. Light and airy.

An absolute joy. I wish I had this on unlimited supply at home (one can wish!).
