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.

Copper/ruby, thin beige head. Smell of funk, caramel, tart berries. Light to moderate sweet, funky, tart moderate sour, berries and oak. Quite complex

Heather_B (245) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Smells good - very cherry and fruit forward. That’s where the positivity ends. Tastes like moldy cherries and has a bitter aftertaste. Looks like sewer water. Never again.

AdamChandler (4189) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Small bottle split two ways at fridge temp. Dark red appearance. Smells nice. Taste is very sugary and fake cherry. Not going to finish. There is a little tartness at the finish

drowland (7713) - Georgia, USA - JAN 24, 2015
1/24/15. Sour Beer Day hanging out with Mrs. Owl between two trips! 375mL bottle from Chan’s, Destin. Hazed neon red pour with a very small pink khaki head that fades to nothing and doesn’t lace at all. Funky aroma, wood, something that reminds me of a spirit barrel, lots of cherry, cherry pie spice, a bit of tartness. I dig the flavor, though, a little funky, vanilla, oak, lots of cherry/cherry pie, a bit of a lingering metallic chalkiness. Otherwise tasty!

scooterbub (955) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - JAN 1, 2015
11.1 ounce bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head that fades. Taste is of tart cherries, wood, grass, malt and spice. Tart cherry aroma. Has a nice body with a dry and bitter finish. Has a nice sourness to it.

fiulijn (17990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Handpump at Lambic Zoon, Milan
Hazy red-amber color with frothy head. Delicate fruity/cherry aroma. Dry but soft mouthfeel, lowly carbonated; delicate flavor with nice fruity touch; low bitterness; mild astringency in the final.
Elegant beer; the handpump reduces the carbonation and boosts the flavors; excellent.

JStax (4536) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle thanks to lukaduke. Small format bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear red with a light pink head of foam. The aroma has fruity acidity, cherry pie filling, and a bit of oxidation. Taste has papery dry fruit. Not much fruit presence, though. Medium body and medium carbonation.

obguthr (5243) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Currants, subtle oak and cheese underneath. Clear maroon, medium pink head. Currant, sour cherries at midpalate, plum finish. Cask-like carbonation, light body, pleasantly tart. Expensive, but I don’t exactly feel cheated either.
