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.

2019 vintage

Appearance: Pours a cloudy apricot with a one finger head that leaves some streaky lacing as it reduces to a film

Smell: Tart lemon, green apple, white wine grape and oak, layered with some barnyard funk

Taste: Tart lemon forward with white wine grape and green apple rounding out the lactic parade; oak and barnyard funk, through the middle, with a sour yogurt finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; puckery

Overall: Long time want and glad to finally get a chance to taste this; lives up to its billing

At long last! It was always scandalous to me that the top rated gueuze on this site was from outside belgium, and while I still feel this is not the best gueuze I have ever had, I can now see why it is in that echelon of the style. Cloudy yellow pour, finger of sudsy white foam, good mix of spotted and splotchy lacing. Lemon, sliced tart apple, lacto, barnyard funk, white grape, flowers, hay and earthy oak in the potent nose. Taste is just as potent, but not as complex as the sour notes lead more than the barnyard funk, oak backs the sour fruits well, slight earth, yogurt funk, and decent hay round out. A more sunny disposition for the style, leans sour more than funky but both present in spades, but the body is light and nuanced despite the potency. I would love to age a bottle of this as I think it would age really nicely!

2022 Vintage. Side-by-side with Mother of All Gooze Anniversary Blend.

Hazy golden yellow coloration. Gusher on the pop, frothy white carb.

Nose is sweet, tart, funky. Notes of underripe peach, lemon zest, and bright, musty funk.

Palate tart and full of stone fruit flavors. Medium acid and a touch of minerality. You can tell the youth on this, whereas on MOAG you really can tell the age on the blend.

Received from @dimidiata. Pours a bright golden color with a small amount of short-lived white head that receded to a thin ring. Fully translucent, almost clear. Aroma has tons of funk, well complemented by complex wine and barrel noted. along with lemon & dandelion. Overall a wonderful smelling beer.

Taste picks up right where the nose left off. I get apricots, wine barrel, apple vinegar, lemon, hay and general barnyard funk. Acidity is spot on. Tart, but it doesn't beat you over the head, allowing all the other wonderful flavors their time in the spotlight. Light bodied, bright, crisp and clean.

Overall, an absolutely wonderful beer.
