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.

Duck duck gooze batch 2

Pours a hazy amber-yellow color with a small, fizzy white head, which leaves back no trace.

Smell is old potatoes, glue, blue cheese, bright and crisp citrus peel with a soft, flowery note to it and a slightly acetic tartness. Very well balanced, not pungently sour, while producing a nice, funky blend. Got some wet hay on top of its aroma foundation with dried tomatoe bush, adding a light herbal complexity to the nose.

Has a lower to medium carbonation, complimenting perfectly to the refreshing, tart, yet complex and balanced beer.

Tastes of fresh squeezed lemon juice, accompanied by a funky mushroom quality and a soft mineral aspect. Its mid palate produces a wood bark covered acetic sourness with a hint of white grape skin to it. This results from a sugary malt sweetness, which becomes recognizable only as a minor note against the omnipresent sourness, while being able to cut through it. Finishes utmost soft, very silk with a pungent, dry acetic tone among lemon zest, and leathery, matured oak, still carrying its subtle grape flavor.

Wow, this is pushing AWAs to a new level for me. This is balanced and complex like no other American sour I've had so far. It got the typical vinegar sourness, which is dominating in many examples of american sours. This is different though, its acetic flavor is setting the balance in this, which to me is remarkable by itself, since it allows a pungent, refreshing lemon sourness to open up the palate to many flavor layers, creating an intriguing complexity which at no point gets boring.

2013 vintage. a beer thats been high on my list (and everyone elses) for what seems like forever. hazy pale yellow in color it definitely looks the part under a fizzy pure white head that dies down right away. the nose on this is just incredible. its so so sour. citric lemon acidity at first, followed by a relaxed bacterial farmhouse saison mustiness and a mellowing oak aspect. white wheat malt is not sufficient to balance the sour, and its not really supposed to be. tartness all the way in the smell and my eyes almost water from the intensity of it all. the taste starts out just like the nose with more of a lemon than a bacterial vibe, but the drying sourness comes in hot, and aided by the carbonation, almost hurts the palate, certainly the jawline. the oak is big here, and it needs to be. it gives more depth and body than the malt does seemingly. my one critique of this is in the feel. while it has awesome carbonation, it does have some residual sugar that keeps this drinking a little heavier, and far less dry and clean than the classic gueuzes of belgium. maybe this is to do with the blending, maybe it needs more time, im not sure, but the finish in terms of feel is off. more vinegary sourness than lactic, i like it a lot, and i am stoked to have finally tried it, but im not sure i would put it in the top 25 beers in the world as others have.

750mL bottle into a Teku
Vintage 2013

A big thanks to joshwith for sending this long time want over in a trade!

A: Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a very small fizzy white head that dissipates almost immediately. Lots of carbonation bubbles can be seen rising to the top of the glass. Leaves essentially zero lacing. 4.25

S: Lots of sour characters, lactic acidity tartness, oak, citrus, some funky plastic like aromas. Everything comes together quite nicely. 4.25

T: A delicious puckering tartness, sour apple and citrus, some sweeter fruit notes, vinous notes that are reminiscent of sweet wine. Lots of oak and vanilla characters on the finish. The sourness builds throughout the drink. Excellent. 4.5

M/D: Medium body, carbonation on the lighter end for the style but alright, drinkability is excellent. 4.25

O: Excellent beer, well worth seeking out. Thanks again Josh! 4.5

750 ml bottle sharred with 4 other BA's, Big thanks to Kevin for bringing this beer.

2009 vintage.

A- Pours a Brown golden straw color, absolutely no carbonation at all, really hazy.
S- Really mellow aroma, cardboard, slight notes of fruit, peach, apricot, lemon, nothing really comes out in the aroma overall, slight acidic notes, sour, the nose was a little disappointing.
T- The taste was the complete opposite, really acidic, love the strong sour notes that come out, really puckering, apricot, vinegar, sour grape skin, nice taste.
M- Really dry, medium mouth feel, no carbonation, nice puckering taste.
O- Very impressed with this beer, this has been on my top wants for some time, love the acidity, and the fruity notes that come out, would love to have another opportunity to drink this beer.

Thanks to Josh for bringing this one! Gotta say I *love* the name and artwork on DDG. Cute, clever, and appropriate.

Peach-colored body brings with it some white head. The fizz emits a pleasantly lemony aroma, layered with sour yeast and oak. Love the nose's intensity; hopefully this tastes as good as it smells.

Liquid meets tongue, taste buds rejoice. Tart lemons, oak, sharply acetic, mildly barnyard-esque, plus a unique kiss of sweetness to shake things up. Lemon meringue pie in a glass.

Reminds me of Cable Car, though I prefer the blend of flavors here. An excellent American sour.

Thanks Roger!
A palette cleanser for our wooden hell tasting.

Pours a beautiful hazy yellowed orange with a nice touch of white head. Got the dregs sort of of the bottle. Smells tart and sour. Very nicely funky. It's very sour but also very funky. Not like any beer ive ever had. The mouthfeel is nice and well carbonated. The sourness is pretty harsh but enjoyable. Definitely a very solid beer somewhere between a gueuze and a wild

Night of the Funk

A-Pours an opaque peach juice hue. Thin layer of white foam.

S-Funky and musty. Oak and sour lemon juice. Light sweetness and a grassy component.

T-Starts off firmly tart. Lemon rind and wet woodiness. Grass and lingering, zesty sourness. Hints of malt sweetness. High acidity. Quite complex.

M-Has some body to it. Dry. Softer carbonation.

O/D-A huge treat to be able to try this beer. I was not blown away but it is clearly a great Wild Ale. This one is a bit over hyped. Still, not much else to complain about.

We'll, finally I'm at 500 reviews! I had thought about what I would rate for my 500th review and I love the Lost Abbey sours so it was nice that this highly anticipated beer came out just around the time I was close to 500 reviews.

I got to try this beer on tap at the Stone Sour Fest 09. This was the only beer I actually went back for a 2nd time.

The duck is a pale, hazy, yellow color with a good inch of foam. Good head retention and soapy lacing on the sides of the glass.

Light cheese and funk on the nose, a bit oak buttery and popcorn aroma, lemon and tart citrus fruits. Not as funky or sour as I was hoping for but still nice.

Now, the taste is a bit better than the aroma, more of what I expected. Cheese upfront, brett, lemon, leather, and hay. Medium acidity with some vinegar on the finish. Semi-dry with still a touch of malt sweetness. More leathery flavors with each sip, oak and vanilla, more fruity as well. To me this tastes more like a 2 year old lambic, it's not a traditional gueuze in that it's a 1, 2, and 3 year old blend of the same beer. I heard this beer has some 1, 2, not sure on 3 year old beer but supposedly there is a beer blended in here that is older than three years. Good carbonation and creamy on the palate with some body from the sweetness. Nice dry finish.

I think this one will age very well and get drier and funkier as the years go by. Looking forward to having a pint and buying some bottles of this at the upcoming release.

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...

served in a Lost Abbey stemmed glass

pours a slightly tinted orange and dull yellow. not much head on this but a nice fizzy head that stops and hangs on for a bit

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.

Opened at TN whales tasting 3/16/2013. Thanks to myself for finally opening this.

Pours a hazy orange without much head.

This is hard to review for me because it's actually pretty one dimensional. Very sour/acidic, bright dry apple/grape, delicious but not super complex. Very dry and acidic going down.

Excellent for what it is but not as good as a top Belgian gueuze and not as good as Izzy or some of the other best CA sours.

Big thanks to beachbum1975 for sharing this gem.

750ml corked and caged brown bottle poured into a GLBC snifter.

A: Pours a cloudy but bright grapefruit skin color. Decent sized pearly white head with good retention. Decent lacing.

S: Funky and sour notes, acidic. Old sweaty gym socks and hockey locker room, lol. Not much cheese but some on the back end.

T/M: Not a ton of sour and tartness, more subtle in the back. Nice subtle, yet complex funkiness. Not as big of the gym sock aroma but still there. Some light colored fruits in the base that lend some great flavors and a bit of acidity. Body is medium to medium light with good carbonation. Some barrel flavors with mostly a leathery taste.

D: Drink pretty damn easy.

Golden with a slight haze. Two fingers of head rises from vigorous pouring and retains fairly well, ultimately settling to a thick disc around the rim of the glass. The nose is complex but balanced, barnyard funk backed by lemon and orange-like acidity, lactic sourness, acetic acid, and a unique tropical fruit sweetness that really makes the beer. Opens on the palate with sharp lactic acidity and well-expressed tannins. Fruit flavors of pineapple, orange and lemon add interesting complexity. Moderate acetic presence mid-palate, woody and lightly astringent, with the malt coming out a bit more, lending a light sweetness that leads into a dry, sharp and tannic finish. The noticeable acetic quality is a slight detraction, but I love the strong tropical fruit character. Another winner for Lost Abbey; they should really concentrate on these barrel-aged sour beers, they're often excellent.

This beer has an orange/yellow pour with a medium white head. It is a fruity beer with a slight acidity to it. Aromas of this beer include lemon and citrus. Flavors of lemons and citrus come through when tasting. Sour aftertaste with a light body. Not my favorite!

On-tap at Beachwood BBQ,

A: Pours a lightly hazy yellow, with a firm white head, nice bubbles, not unlike champagne.

S: Sour apples, mild vinegar, malt.

T: Sour yellow apples, cidery, very gueuze like. White wine grapes and hint of sugar as well.

M: Smoothly acidic, not going to pull the enamel off your teeth, medium-bodied crisp.

D: Well worth the wait, this is fantastic gueuze/wild ale, I wish I could drink more of it.

Sampled at hoppymcgee's tasting 1/16. 4oz. pour into an 8oz. pint glass. Been waiting a long time to review this one. Done from notes.

A: Pours no head, no lacing... I think there might be something wrong with my glassware? Beer is a cloudy lemon color.

S: Woody, skunky, barnyard, band-aid, sour fresh apples, lemon, vinegar. Very appropriate.

T: Opens intensely tart and it shocks my palate the first time around. Promising. A second sip tempers the sourness and reveals a slightly sweet middle. Lemon and granny smith apples. Finish is a bit sour but very balanced.

M: Light bodied, coarse, carbonated though you wouldn't think so from the appearance. Very dry with a slightly sour finish.

D: I think this has gotta be the poster child of sours... It doesn't do anything outrageous but it doesn't fail at doing anything either. Very balanced, appropriate smell, taste, and feel. I'd no doubt have this one again but it didn't blow me away like some other sours I've come across.

Review #875

The beer poured a slightly hazed, straw yellow color with a subtle amber tinge. A one-finger tall, frothy, bone white head topped the liquid and quickly faded to a ring of bubbles. Spotty drops of lacing tricked down the glass.

Lots of interesting stuff happening in the aroma. Crisp, dry, powdery yeast notes came through initially but were soon washed away by a moderate tartness. Good dose of brett. Strong wheaty notes. There was a subtle, grape-y/wine-y presence as well. Even though this beer was aged in red wine barrels, I seemed to pick up white grape notes. The dry, tart qualities were balanced by a subtle, bready malt sweetness.

The flavor profile was quite similar to the aroma. Like the nose, it too was crisp and tart. Quite wheaty. Grape-y with strong notes of white wine. Again, considering the barrel aging method, this was a bit surprising. The beer was anchored by a crackery malt base. Touch of sweetness. Some moderately acidic, candy coated lemon notes were apparent as well. I can definitely see why some people have mentioned Sweet Tarts when describing this beer in their reviews. The beer finished with lots of bretty tartness, lemon and hints of vinegar. The lemon-like notes lingered on my palate long after every sip. All in all, very balanced and drinkable, especially for the style.

The mouthfeel was creamy and smooth. Medium bodied for the style. A fine, zippy effervescence gave the beer a light, supple, fluffiness.

Given the hype surrounding this beer, I was expecting it to be a bit more unique and complex. Nevertheless, this is a very tasty and well crafted American wild ale that I am grateful to have had the opportunity to sample. Big thanks again to my friend Sean for sharing this.

Previous review is for the 2009, it was a 4.5. I remember it being very sour, I had it in 2011. anxious to see how it is fresh

looks fantastic and smells great! nice funky and sour up front on the nose.
taste is a bit sour and some nice sweetness. great oak. beer is full bodied for a 7%er.
overall this a good beer, but don't make my mistake. give this a year or 2 to pucker up and get funky like the nose, right now it's a bit too young. I'll bet the 2013 is drinking fantastic right now.

From a bottle into a snifter @ the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens on 11/9/09 during the "Tomme Arthur Experience" event.

Pours a hazy golden tangarine color, with a thin filmy covering of brite-white head. This stays rich looking on the edges, coating the sides of the glass with white froth. The aroma is tart citrus right off the bat, probably being most akin to the smell of grapefruit juice, along with some mustiness and woody oak character. Going deeper reveals some cider-like vinegar notes and more pronounced vanilla and char. I like the fact that the more pleasant fruity tartness sits on top, while the more meat & potatoes character of the souring and tannic presence sit underneath with a much slicker feel. Good stuff here.

The taste is a bit more acidic and vinegar feeling at first, but those same brash citric flavors of lemon, peach, and grapefruit just about keep even pace. Esters and funk permeate the whole profile, along with notes of tannic oak and vanilla. These blend in with some sweeter accents of sugar and honey, which thankfully are constant throughout the taste but not constantly overridden by the tartness, sourness, and funk. Wow, oak and vinegar really just sticks to the roof of the mouth in the finish and it is a bit hard to shake. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a mild softness that sits on top of the tongue but then gives way to a lower carbonated and slick feel that falls right in line with the barrel character and ABV of this. Once I got past the initial shock of the flavors, my palate adapted pretty readily to this, making for a most favorable experience.

This was, all in all, pretty intense at times for me but in the end, I couldn't ignore the beautiful balance between the tartness, sourness, funk, sweetness, and barrel flavors. Just a fantastic Wild Ale blend here. A beer to be proud of for sure.

Had this on tap at Toronado during Sf Beer week.
Duck Duck Gooze by Lost Abbey is an American Wild Ale, 7% and hard to get a hold of since they brew it in very small quantities. It's a blend of their young and old barrel aged beers. It poured a hazy straw yellow with a hint of white head and lacing. It smelled of tart citrus, sour green apples, oak, and some leather notes. It tasted sharp and tart at first with some lemon peel and wood. Then it finished a bit sour and dry but very well balanced.

Bought this for myself as a present for finishing 2L. Been eyeing this one at the Goat for awhile.

Appearance- First pour is a beautiful clear golden color. Half inch of sparkling white head disappears in a moment. Second pour is much cloudier. I guess there was a lot of sediment left in there.

Smell- Some funkiness. A real dank sweat sock quality. Grapes and white wine. Apple, like barrel of fermenting, rotting apples. Vinous. Downright pungent towards the bottom of the second pour.

Taste- Wow. Delicious. Sour and more sour. Vinous. Just a ton of vinegar. As it warms it literally crawls up the tongue. Seriously, it's like light apple cider vinegar. Wow. Just a hint of grain in the finish. It's delicious, in case I wasn't clear. It's got a really nice young white wine quality. Dries out the mouth, just saliva-inducing.

Mouth- I want this to have a little more bubbly. It's fine for the style, but I'd like a touch more carbonation, especially since it's so dry. The acid tingles nicely.

Drinkability- Want more. More. As it warms, and as the dryness catches up, I also want a giant glass of water. Somewhat glad I split the bottle, somewhat wanted it all for myself.

A really delicious beer. I'm as harsh as anyone on LA, but this beer is fantastic. Wish I had more of it.

Batch 1

A - Dark golden color with no head

S - Tart lemons, light sweet tarts, lactic acid, light oak, some orange 4.25

T -Tart lemon, musty oak, orange, and lactic acid. There is really a strong tartness to it but despite that the oak adds enough funk to give the beer a complexity beyond being just a straight tart bomb.

M - Had a lot of carbonation yet was rather smooth. However, when it's as tart as this beer was, it definitely felt sharp on the tongue and had a dry finish

O - This is a solid American wild ale that goes up there with some of the Belgians I've had. It definitely was one of the most sour beers I've had as it was rather tart with just enough funk and complexity to keep it grounded and interesting

Shared by Roger. Thanks man.
Pours similar to carbonated apple juice, with not quite the clarity and a nice cap of white head. The nose is lightly sour with lemon rind and cider vinegar. The taste is sweeter than expected - a lemon apple acidity presents in a somewhat reserved way. This beer is shockingly drinkable and not particularly sour (more funky than sour). One of my preferred wilds. The mouthfeel is nice with good, strong carbonation and a heavier than expected body. Overall, this is one of my favorite wilds that I have had from the nebulous AWA style.

A: Pastel yellow in color. Slightly cloudy. Forms a bubbly off-white head that slowly dissipates to a stable surface coating and a thick ring around the edge.

S: Pungent and funky. Rather tart green apples. Notes of cider vinegar.

T: Again, quite tart, but with a light sweetness to it, makes it quite drinkable. Lemon, lemon zest, green apple, cider vinegar. Finishes quick and clean.

M: Rather acidic, bright, crisp, and sour, but not crazy sour. This one punches you real good at first, but then backs off quickly.

O: A very good wild ale with a good degree of tartness, but not enough that it becomes undrinkable. Best way I can describe it is as a very "clean-tasting" sour.

Appearance: Big nice off-white head. Beer itself is a sun-golden-yellow with a bit of haze.

Smell: Lots of lemon and vinegar, reminds me of New Belgium's Bottleworks X. Also tropical fruit like pineapple and star fruit, along with some musty funk and leather, more brett than typical for lost abbey.

Taste: More sour than usual for Lost Abbey. Lemon, vinegar, tropical fruits (pineapple, etc), bret, funk, wee bit of leather, and french oak. Perhaps some honey. A bit lacking in complexity as compared to Isabelle Proximus, and the score for taste reflects this.

Mouthfeel: Was glad to find that this one is carbonated. Very dry.

Drinkability: Incredibly high, very sour and flavorful, but still drinkable.

NB: I enjoyed this one, highly drinkable and tasty. But it simply is not as good as cable car, isabelle proximus, or any of the Veritas line.
