“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.”

2016 B3 poured from a 750mL bottle into a Lost Abbey DDG Teku glass.
Pours a golden orange, slightly hazy body with a white head that reduces slowly, leaving spotty lacing.
Aromas are tart and lactic, with a solid amount of oak, funky yeast, citrus, grassy. Oak/wine barrel is the dominating aroma here.
On the tongue is a delicious tartness, interesting oak character, grassy, white wine, hay, barnyard, fruity yeast, super dry with a crisp funky aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation, very dry and crisp.
Lived up to the hype! This beer is amazing. Delicate and balanced.
