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.

A - Golden in color with slick lacing that slides down the side of the glass once swirled. Leaves a white crown around the top of the glass. Translucent, showing off thin streams of carbonation racing to the top.

S - A gorgeous citrus aroma with the likes of lemons, oranges and persimmons. Citrus galore! I'm getting a little bit of pineapple as well. It doesn't quite have the funk that the Classic Cantillon Gueuze offers (drinking side by side). The aroma is complex and concentrated where I could just sit here and smell it all day.

T - The taste is very similar to the aroma. Citrus with some funk. Very complex and very refreshing!

M - Wonderful acidic feel and mouth coating. Very sour presence on the back edges of your tongue.

O - This beer is awesome! I don't think that it's worth the fuss, but well worth seeking out and trying. Thanks again, Mike!
