On-tap at Lost Abbey.
A: Pours a murky orange color with no head.
S: Just an overall unpleasant aroma. Smells like a 6 month old homebrew sour. Cereal/cherrios on the nose with damp sawdust and a weird salty and umami character.
T: The flavor isn't much better. Very lightly tart with some sweet candy and melon flavors. It's still salty and heavy on the sawdust, though. Intensely musty, too.
M: Light to medium in body with very minimal carbonation.
O: This needs a lot of time or just to be thrown away.
Serving type: on-tap

5th Annual Barrel Night
The Lost Abbey
San Marcos, CA
Hazy dull orange with a very thin off-white head with very little visible carbonation. This doesn't leave much to any stick on the glass.
A very mild aroma consisting of some citrus and a mild oak character, but everything is still very young and mild.
The flavor too is very mild with a hint of citrus and oak and a very, very mild sour character.
Light to medium bodied with low carbonation.
An interesting insight into the creation of the next iteration of Duck-Duck, but not a special beer on its own.

Served at Lost Abbey's 2011 Barrel Night. "Project X is our spontaneous fermentation program. Many of these barrels will make their way into the 2012 release of Duck Duck Gooze."
A: Hazy orange with a small mass of bubbles.
S: Slightly salty, with notes of plastic and kelp. Light savory characteristics. Hint of citrus with oak.
T: The taste is better than the aroma. Brackish with a light citric acidity. I get faint citrus and a moderate lactic note. The beer is lightly tart.
M: Lower medium body with low carbonation.
Overall: Young, but shows promise. Interesting to try the single barrel but I wasn't eager to finish my pour.
Serving type: growler
