COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una tira l’altra.
Chiamata così dal nome botanico del frutto – Prunus Avium o Cerasus in base alla varietà – la Prunus è stata ottenuta aggiungendo in infusione a fine fermentazione alla Duchessa circa il 20 per cento di ciliegie fresche con tutto il nocciolo. Diversamente dalle classiche kriek di scuola belga, è una birra non eccessivamente acida – mantenendo una certa morbidezza caratteristica della birra base – e per nulla stucchevole, visto che ad un ingresso dolce-acido segue un retrogusto amaro molto bilanciato.

Duchessa with fresh cherries infused. February release.

davidezdonz (287) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 16, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a best before date of September 2017 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a hazy orange golden colour with a thin white head that doesn’t stick around and only leaves some light lacing. Aromas were tart, sour, cherry, apple vinegar and light funkiness. Taste was like the aroma with tart, sour cherry, sour apple and lemon. Dry, crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall nice and easy to drink, but I preferred Rubus slightly more.

Pours a nice reddish orange color. Aroma is full of dark fruit, yeasty and malts. Big almost grape like flavor with hints of something chocolate like. A real good beer.

Marko (4854) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 2, 2016
From bottle at the Craft Beer Festival in Zagreb, Croatia. Orange-golden body with a small whtie head. Sourish cherry aroma with solid tartness mixing with honeyish notes, slightly funky. Cherry taste, lowery, pollen, slightly tart (the tartness comes from cherries, not from the yeast, and it’s quite well integrated). Nice, pleasant tart fruit beer, balanced for what it is, glad to have tried it!
