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.

Bottle thanks to islandboi8204, served in a Hill Farmstead stem.

Pour: Hazy yellow orange, with a half finger of white head that recedes to a rim. No lacing. Body has a nice glow to it.

Smell: Big tart lemons and funk up front. Lots of oak as well. Some pear skins and green apples. A strong lactic character is even sour on the nose.

Taste: Big sour lemons up front, followed by a deep clean funk. Lots of tart pears and more lemon. A hefty amount of oak dries everything out continually. Some light bready sweetness, but only just. Finishes with funk and oak.

Mouthfeel: Very sour, but never puckering or cloying. Very, very dry, which I enjoy immensely.

Overall: This beer exceeded my high expectations. It is clear why it has the acclaim it carries. I hope to have it again.

Bottle generously shared by Grumpyoldtroll, at our pre thanksgiving tasting...Thanks Mike!

I have been wanting to try this one for a while!

Poured a hazy apricot like color with minimal head. The nose on this one was amazingly tart, slight funk mixed with lemon juice.

Taste follows suit on the tartness. hint of lemon rhind mixed with sour berries. This was surprisingly dry on the palate. Smooth from sip to finish. Overall this is an amazing geuze
