Notes/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, 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.

Review #900!

750ml C&C bottle; vintage 2013.

consumed on 9/21/2014 and at 4 Elves party this past winter; both times were the 2013 vintage was sampled.

poured into tulip glass.

Appearance: yellow bodied beer with thin white cap.

Smell: white wine barrels and some light tartness. Not much going in the nose. Light musty funk.

Taste: Light tartness and a buttery richness. Lemon and green apples. Getting some hints of oak as well. Minimal amount of funkiness that is a combination of plastic and mustiness.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with low carbonation. Feels slick and buttery. Almost flat carbonation this beer needs some life put into it.

Overall: This must be a beer that gets better as it develops in the bottle. As of how 2013 DDG is drinking, I just don't understand all the fanfare surrounding this Lost Abbey sour. Not much complexity and it doesn't really impress me all that much.
