I was warned this beer had fallen off a bit. I can assure you it was the shocker of the night. For the people that have had it already, it was unanimous that this was the best bottle of DDG they have ever had. For me the amazing balance of sour/funk/lemon zest was amazing. Ain't over the hill yet son.

Reviewing the 2009 vintage of the infamous Duck Duck Gooze from The Lost Abbey out of San Marcos, California. Shout out to Jonathan Feldman for bringing this bottle!
2009 vintage bottle served in an hard plastic wine chalice and enjoyed on 05/18/13 side-by-side with a bottle of 2012 Cable Car as part of our Chicago Craft Beer Week whales tasting. Review is from iPhone notes.
Appearance: Similar color to, but a little lighter and more "bright" than, the Cable Car (orangey-golden in color). Only a thin ring of head around glass off the pour. Surprisingly good lacing and retention (Cable Car absolutely lacked both). 5/5
Smell: Tart apples, pear, hint of mango. Super sour nose. 5
Taste: Incredibly tart peach, apple, mango, lemon and some vinegar. Lacto too, but not in a funky way. A light amount of pine as well. 5/5
Mouthfeel: A little more body than Cable Car (which was light-medium bodied) with a perfect level of carbonation as well. More tart than Cable Car too, with a tongue tingling zestiness that was like drinking liquid warhead candy. Just as dry as Cable Car on the finish. 5/5
Overall: Even better than Cable Car. This is one I wish I had a case (or ten) of. I love how "clean" and sour this was, without being heavy on the funk. This is one of the best beers I have had the opportunity to sample. Prost!
Cost: $40 for a 750 ml bottle.

750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.
Appearance - Hazy orange. Small white head with a thin collar.
Smell - Orangey citrus acid aroma. A hint of vinegar creeping up in the back.
Taste - Bright citrusy sour. Orange sourness. Vinegar is less intense, but still faint in the back. Very intense sour finish.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Very sour.
Overall - Extremely sour and it probably covers up any complexity. Thankfully the flavors it has are quite good.
