This beer comes from a single barrel from the upcoming blend of Duck Duck Gooze.

To my surprise this was available on tap at Lost Abbey during the Red Poppy release. Had two tasters of this, it was the first beer I had as soon as I got there and the last one before I left.

The beer is a vibrant, clear, golden color with very little foam, only a tiny ring. An amber hue on the sides.

The aroma was amazing, lots of pineapple, green apples, cheese, pears, and hints of caramel and toasted sweetness. Lemon peels began to show up as it warmed up as well as a butterscotch aroma in the background. Oak, vinous, and vinegar aromas in the back as well.

Acidic upfront with flavors of lemon, pineapple, green apple, un-ripe cantaloupe, and a bit of lemony vinegar in the finish. Dry, tart, and refreshing finish. A bit of caramel sweetness upfront, not as sour as the aroma led me to believe, it’s more acetic and tart with loads of apple and pear flavors.

Very low carbonation and a tad syrupy in the finish, but still very easy to drink. Wish there was just a tad more carbonation and it would really make this one shine, but spot on for the style.

Served In: Flute Glass
