BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Lost Abbey
California, United States

Style: Gueuze

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - golden blonde with a tiny film of white head that eventually just recedes to a thin ring. Looks inviting.

S - Sour green apples, lemon citrus, orange fruity esters are big. Huge aroma that hangs around.

T - Sharp lemon, grass, vinegar with plenty of those fruity esters found in the aroma. Begins with lots of dry citrus, then is met in the m iddle with sweet apple and finishes dry with some more tart fruit and vinegar. Lovely balance of fruit and sour.

M - Medium bodied with a great carbonation pop which feels very effervescent on the tongue but not overwhelming whatsoever.

D - The hanging citrus & vinegar is going to fade my palate quickly as my throat is already filled with super tart lemony vinegar.

Really enjoyed this one. Pours a nice golden color, quite clear and bubbly. Quality head. Super citrusy sour with a nice funk and malt presence. Strong work Arthur, right up there with 3F and Cantillon.... Could enjoy this beer anytime. Near perfect.

I was looking forward to trying this for a while -thanks to Maltzilla for the trade. Poured cooler than cellar temp from the 750ml into a cervoise.

The color is clear golden with thick bone white cap with a very tight formation of beading to make up the head - the clarity is good enough to see carbonation rising steadily and the lace sticks to the glass - the head settles to a ring of about 1/4 inch high. The aroma of fruit emanates from the glass with a very vinous odor -white grape and mild honeydew with a slight hint of golden delicious apple brings out the sweet notes from the malt along with the tart qualities of the wild yeast - some mild wood and light sour fragrance comes forward with mild lemony aspect -but a tropical nose emerges and seems to add more floral and light herbal notes to the nose. The feel is great -exeptional and has a moderately strong sour element with assertive but not bitter quality-mildly dry with citrus juiciness and lots of puckering tinges but not over the top or harsh, a very gentle sweetness cushions the tanginess and sour elements well.

The flavors are citrusy with orange and lemonade puckering taste yet there is a light dry taste w/ mild wood and gentle lactic accents. The taste of the wood gives a dry flavor with light lemony acidity following and subtle oak w/ hints of white grape combine to give a mild astringent edge to the smooth malt and fruit from the yeast- the green grape and hints of bitter citrus blend with the tannic flavor from the wood as it finishes. There is an almost peachy floral and tropical sweetness in the background which is very pleasant and adds to the complexity of the barrel to offset some of the dry elements in the taste. Duck Duck Gooze is as good as I remember from having it at Extreme Beer Fest 2 years ago -it may even be better - the beer has a lot of complexity and wonderful flavors for a 5% wild ale- this was very memorable and well worth the effort to acquire - I wood seek this out again.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks to Kyle for sharing the wealth!

(A)- Pours a clear orange/yellow color that produced a white head that dissipated after awhile. (4.0)

(S)- Some great tart fruits and sour; almost lactic background. Lightly earthy of hay, but mostly the sour wine-like fruits dominated the aroma. (4.5)

(T)- Rather sour, but a great sour profile at that. Some light earthy hay from the smell, but again, the lemon and white grape-like fruits take center stage.(5.0)

(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. A potent sour/acidic level, but supplemented well by light earth and fruits. It finishes rather clean despite its potency.(4.5)

(D)- This is really a great Wild worth getting your hands on some. Has a great profile and balance with just the right amount of each aspect. Great stuff.(5.0)

(original review: A+ / 4.65)

**Updated review**
750mL corked and caged bottle poured into a stemmed glass. 2009 Vintage.

(A)- Pours a semi cloudy golden apricot yellow/orange color. Produced a decent white head that dissipated down to foam. Minimal lacing. It really does have a beautiful looking color.

(S)- Dry, yet a wonderful acidic sourness. Great tart lemon rind, white grape, and an almost lime or peach fruits. Not a ton of funk, but just enough hay and vinegar-like earth to mesh really well together with the sour fruits.

(T)- Very similar to the smell in every way. A really nice dry, acidic lemon tart and white grape sourness. Minimal dry earthy hay funk on the finish with even more almost juicy, yet tart lemon and maybe peach on the finish.

(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. It really has a beautifully balanced profile of tart acidic fruits and mellow dry earth. Its so smooth despite its sourness.

(D)- Just an absolute wonderful wild ale. It really is even better than what I remember from my first time trying it! With a much larger amount to critique and a more quiet setting to enjoy it in, I felt that this deserves an even better rating than I originally gave it. Just a wonderfully easy drinking; balanced and dynamic beer. Lost Abbey has been hit or miss for me, but I really think this is hands down their best offering. I really do not see how it can get any better than this for the style

I can't thank sweemzander enough for scoring this bottle for our tasting crew. I had a tiny sample of this a Darkness day and it haunted my dreams from that day forward. Poured from a bottle into a tulip.

A: Cloudy orange gold hue. Small amount of bright white head. Tiny lace ring.

S: Wonderful aroma. Citrus, grape skins, light funk, lactic sour, dusty wood, basement. Nothing in your face. Just a perfect balance of sweet and sour.

T: Just like the aroma the flavor is spectacular. Perfect balance of sweet juicy citrus fruits and sour lactic bite. Mild funk that plays off the other components so well. Lemons, white grapes, wet hay, dusty wood, damp basement. So delicious.

M: Medium body. Very creamy yet carbonated perfect.

D: Overall a true master piece of a wild ale. Thanks again sweem for the chance to sample a healthy serving of this epic brew.

A huge thanks to John for hosting such an amazing tasting

This beer pours a beautiful yellow color and is surprisingly clear, only a very slight haze to it. the head is white and laces the glass. the smell is sour, with hints of fruit like green apple, also detect some oak. the taste is pretty close to the smell, it has that lactic sour, with hints of fruit, a little funk to it. the mouthfeel is on the light to medium side with good carbonation. this beer is sour and very drinkable.

750 ml bottle split and poured into a tulip. 7.0% ABV, no date.

Big thanks to "King of Beers" sweemzander for busting this, among quite a few others to come, out for a night of epic proportions!

A - Beautiful lightly hazy goldenrod color with a low but persistent off-white head. Good retention and some patchy lace left over.

S - Sharp, crisp funk all over the place, Brett and barnyard aroma adds some awesome damp hay, horse-blanket, and tartness to the nose. Lemon citrus and bugs make it mouth-puckering before I even taste it. Lots of lactic-ness here.

T - Notes of raw honey and pale malt drizzled with caramel lightly sweeten the huge lactic sour flavor. Massive Brett barnyard funk with a sharp finish. This is wild!

M - Light-bodied and heavily sour with a big funk, Duck Duck has a sharp finish that's nicely carbonated and mouth-puckering.

D - This is hard to not demolish before finishing the review, it's very very easy drinking for as sour as it is. It goes down so well, I'd be willing to wager Sweem regretted sharing it.

Thanks to Loki83 for this Gem.

A - pours a bright yellow. White head, light lacing.

S - Not that strong. I smell some funk right out the gate, with some slight hints of lemon peel.

T - wow, begins with a strong acidic and lemon taste right at the start. Some funk follows, with a slight sweet and dry finish.

M - perfect. Level of carbonation is high, and I love that with my sours. The beer flavor lingers.

D - very high. The beer is very sour, but not off-putting at all. The lemon notes keep me interested.

O - another great beer I just had tonight. Well worth it.

Big thanks to Mike for sharing this. No matter how mad you are, you can always keep your beer at my place.

Appearance -- Pours a hazy peach hue with no head to speak of. Great color, though.

Smell -- Bright acetic tartness akin to red wine vingar, Granny Smith, lactic tartness, wet oak, and gentle malt sweetness.

Taste -- Begins with a lack of subtlety: sharp acetic tartness coupled with no small amount of sourness. After a few sips the palate becomes accustomed to the acetic/lacto character and the underlying malt sweetness becomes apparent. Interestingly the brett character is pretty mild: a bit of lemon and faint horsiness, but little else. Wood tannin and and wet lumber flavors have strong footing. A proper lambic-styled American ale

Mouthfeel -- medium-bodied with ample carbonation. Finish is nicely drying.

Drinkability -- Quite good, though more in line with a younger, unblended lambic with the malt sweetness and gentler brett character. This has to be the most labic-like of any American wild I've had to date. That said I wouldn't say that this is any better than Cantillon or Girardin gueuzes, both of which being far more accessible.

Shared generously by Chico1985. Notes from Friday. First of three gueuzes on the night.

A- Murky golden-orange that reminds me of a dried apricot or something. A small white head forms for a bit and a ring leaves just a bit of lace.

S- A big bomb of funk and fruit. Funk lends a barnyard and horse pasture type feel. The fruit balances that out with notes of almost anything I can think of, mainly white wine grapes, apples and some vinous hints. Oak rounds it all out.

T- Probably the smoothest flavor in a sour I have experienced thus far. Just like the nose the fruit is huge. Apples, white grapes, slight peach and tons of lemon/citrus sour fruits. Oak works nicely with the funky barnyard wild yeast. A nice level of sour.

MF- Light body with lower end carbonation suiting the flavor. Gets very sour as it warms more but still at a level I enjoy.

DB- A very smooth and balanced flavor compared to most sours I have had before. The microbes in the beer lend so many nice flavors and the brewing skill put into this helps balance it into a great beer.

I remember reading this was released in 2009 sometime, so I assume this is between 1-2 years old. First beer in a very gueuzy tasting, my guts are hating me right now. I've been very excited to try this, definitely one of my most sought after beers since I began "the hunt." Got this in a trade from nerd, thanks!

Poured hazy peach color, excellent color. Thin white head eventually turns to a thick ring leaving some lacing.

Great sour scent. Big oak+brett, sour light fruits. Improves as it warms. Slight banana? It's enticing.

Taste has got lemons, peach, citrus, oak, brett, chardonnay, some green apple. Surprisingly not too sour and extremely tasty and drinkable.

Mouthfeel is perfect, I couldn't ask for a better feeling sour. Just feels perfect, flavorful, and balanced.

One of the best and most drinkable sours I've had so far. A great balance of fruit and funk tastes. Let's hope it gets released again!

Huge huge thanks to ipa247 for cracking this one open for a few of us beer lovers.

A: Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden with a thin white head that faded to a collar that left a few wisps of lacing down the glass.
S: I mostly get tart lemon zest and citrus but there are some funky notes, brett and peach in the mix.
T: Very funky but the sour/tartness is very well integrated and under control. Notes of lemon and brett, a slight attic must, and a few hints of nail polish acetone. Aftertaste linges for a while.
M: Medium body, clean and refreshing mouthfeel, low but tingly carbonation, and a moderate fruit tartness.
D: My second favorite LA beer I've had to date (behind Cable Car). A very very good beer, and one I've been wanting to try for a long time. Thanks again Jeff!

Thanks to Jerz for opening this bottle.

A - This reminds me a lot of Isabelle Proximus..which I had a few minutes before enjoying this one. Clear, light orange, light head, and nice lacing.

S - It's got a lot of IP characteristics, but it's a little less funky. Lemons, zest, spice...there's some more horse blanket (slightly different from funky), and a little less fruit. Maybe pear and citrus on the finish?

T - Lemons and spices seem to come out most as far as discernible flavors aside from funky. More acidic than IP, with light funkiness.

M - Light body, sour taste...light carbonation. Definitely smacking my lips after each sip.

D - Oh yeah, definitely drinkable. I was at the release, and should have bought it instead of the flat Santa's Little Helper and Older Viscosity. But I wasn't into sours then...so what did I know!?

750ml into Bells tulip.

A- Nice ivory head - very active. About 1cm tall. Settles quickly on a base that's anywhere from goldenrod to orange with amber highlights depending on how you look at it. Great color.

S- Fruity, floral. Not much in the way of 'funk'. Maybe a little brett.

T- Lemon tartness, a bit of saltiness and a wash of acidity. White wine in parts, green apples.. a bit peppery. Not terribly funky. Dregs blended with the final glass- Substantially more cheesy horse blanket notes.

M- Great carbonation, mild. Light on the tongue, finish is moderately dry.

D- Very high. This is a fantastic beer. Easy to drink, great flavors, hope to see this one again.

Bottle shared by Joe - much obliged!

Pours a hazy yellowish-golden color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving decent lacing.

Smells of large amounts of funk - wet hay and leather - with good amounts of light malts and wheat twang. Also present are moderate amounts of tart light citrus aromas and very faint vanilla from the oak.

Tastes very similar to how it smells. Light malt and wheat twang flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by large amounts of funk. Midway through the sip moderately tart light citrus flavors with hints of lemon pith work their way into things. The funk come backs in full force to carry through to a crisp and mildly tart ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with active carbonation.

Drinkability is very good. I finished my glass quickly and could easily have a few more.

Overall this is a phenomenal beer that could be confused with the real thing from Belgium. Well worth a shot if you can get your hands on it.

Big thanks to Terry for breaking this one out at the Bullfrog Pub Club Holiday Party 2010.

A-Lightly hazed, brilliant golden yellow with a thin white that held on strong throughout and left fine flecks of lace behind.

S-Musty lemon zest, Granny Smith apple and a strong presence of apple cider vinegar. Becomes more musty as it warms.

T-Amazing similarity to a Sweet-tart candy on the palate. Sweetness up front with a moderating and inviting lemon zest and vinegar tartness in the finish.

M-Light bodied, sharp and crisp with a very nice drying finish. Long lingering lemon zest flavour and astringency is quite pleasing.

D-Damn nice stuff. Not overly tart, as the initial sweetness balances this, but enough to make itself known. Overall this is very approachable, inviting and solid sour. One I am certainly glad to have had an opportunity to try,

tons of green apple and white grape. light hints of concord grape. nice light oak through out. faint hints of vinegar

nice and sour. appears most of the sourness comes in the form of sour green apple and a slightly lighter white grape. a nice sweetness with a touch of concord grape beneath. funk in the back. mostly fruit here.

slightly sweet and moderately carbonated. nice dryness in the end.

this is great, very well blended and very refreshing. not overly sour but quite sour in general.

Rating from last summer, I've heard this may have turned the corner but I don't know that first hand so I'm sticking with my original rating.

From a bottle, thanks to radhoesbro. Pours a faintly hazy apricot with a meager head. Nose is a bit salty, with some very distinguishable round, fruit tones I find in most Lost Abbey sours. Nice, but nothing explosive. Kind of a peachy, apricot aroma. Flavor is initially quite salty, which is my overall complaint with Veritas 004, but it quickly melds into a nice progression into a full peachy note. Quite sour and tart with that integrated, round yeast I find in their light sours time and again. Carbonation is medium and is good for the style. Nice, one of the best from Lost Abbey I've had.

EDIT - This beer is a mess as of April, 2011. I think I was overrating it to begin with. Compared to some better peaches it's completely one-dimensional and has a really flat flavor profile. Acidity has taken over, as it does with most Lost Abbey light sours.

Thanks to Dunt for breaking out this bottle at his birthday tasting.

Aroma:Sour aroma, fruit, some sweetness.

Appearance:Murky yellow orange. Low head, fair lacing.

Taste:Huge sour bite right on the foretaste. Tons of lemon flavor. The aftertaste has some white grape skin sour flavors. Also, some sweet notes linger on pleasantly.

Mouthfeel:Light to medium body, with medium to heavy astringency on the throat.

Drinkability:Amazingly drinkable sour beer. Not as sour as some beers, it's really drinkable.

Thanks to Devin for the bottle! I've been wanting to try this for quite some time.

Duck Duck Gooze pours a clear, light-orange with a thin white head on top. Good lacing left behind. Looks great for an American Wild.

Lots of sour mustiness on the nose. Hay and acidity with a faint hint of ethanol. Peaches and light fruits. Touch of vinegar and white grape. Strong and enjoyable. One the best wild ale aromas I've had the pleasure of nosing.

Peach, pear and apple enveloped in a wave of nice sourness on the tongue. A decent vinegar burn lingers on the finish. Very juicy and acidic, mixed with sweet malts. The flavor profile is great. The balance between fruitiness and sourness is very good. I feel like this going to get pretty acidic in another year or so, but at the moment it's like sour liquid candy.

Mouthfeel has a really nice sour kick to it. Smooth long burn on the finish. Perfect carbonation. Very smooth, almost slippery. Well done.

This is a very drinkable wild. The sourness is starting to become more intense, which makes this more of a sipper, but a sipper that is full of complexity and great flavor. This is most definitely one of the best sour beers I have ever had, especially from an American brewery. Really a must for all sour heads. I can't wait for the next release. Great job Lost Abbey.

Bottle. Pours an opaque amber orange color with a nice white head. Strong sour notes and tart fruit in the nose. Some acetone notes as well but very minimal. LIght mouthfeel with a really nice blend of flavors. Fairly sour but not so much that it leaves you puckering. Lemon and straw notes. The acetone notes in the aroma are there in the taste as well but again, very minimal. Finishes dry and clean. Good lace left behind of the glass. A very solid beer that lives up to the hype. Some wine like characteristics. Not sure how this beer really gets any better.

Well this is a significant personal review for me. After a long time of not appreciating "sour" beers is was Duck Duck Gooze that caused my epiphany. I fell in love immediately. Later I was able to secure a bottle from Avalon68.. A great trading partner. Thanks!
It's time to enjoy that bottle and post my review.

Pours into my snifter with a small white head that faded almost immediately to a ring of foam around the glass. The beer is a bright brass color with perfect clarity. Some slowly rising bubbles can be seen.

Aroma is certainly tart with green apple and green grape notes.

Taste is as wonderful as I remember. White wine, tart green grapes, peaches, oak and behind the tartness a bready tone. Later I detected some light lemon as well. While there is certainly a vinegar like tartness the character and complexity make this a special beer.

Delicate mouth feel with the slightest carbonation. Sparkles brightly on the tongue.

Wonderful drinkability and a great bottle to savor for quite a while...

Great beer. Sadly, I'll probably never taste it again...

Second time having it and was more amazed by it this time.... it deserves to be in the top 100 so here it goes, review #2

A: Golden color with a slight orangey tinge... Light layer of slightly tan head with bits of it clinging onto the edge of the glass. (I am color blind as hell so my colors might be off) it still looks great though.

S: A light sweetness followed to a tart bite that you can feel in the back of your noses.

T: Overly tart apples, with a light sweet funk at the end... Slight traces of lemons/tart citrus through out. I feel the apple shows up more though

M: Lightly carbonated just enough so that you know that it it's there.

D: This is the most drinkable wild ale I have ever had. I split my bomber with a friend and I am kind of sad that I didn't just drink the whole bottle.

5 oz. pour. HUGE thanks to BMan1113VR for bringing this to my tasting last night. Review from notes.

Murky straw golden color. Finger of fluffy white head that dies down to a layer of foam. No lace.

Smells quite sour. Horse blanket. Sour white grapes.

Tastes of white wine, horse blanket, peaches, apricots, and sour grapes. Refreshing and bright.

Mouthfeel is pretty puckering, light bodied, and light carbonation.

Pretty insanely drinkable. Great to try this one. Would be awesome on a hot summer day.
