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.

Huge tart acidic aromas rains and plums come to mind. Hazy orange thin ring of head. So smooth dried prune full body slides slowly to a mild acidic sour finish. I have never liked prunes so much.

Sarlacc83 (1769) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle shared by Justin. Thanks! A: Mostly clear orange color with a thin dying white head. N: Vinegar, cherry, acetone, some cracker, a bit of funk. T: Very, very tart, light citrus. M: Light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol. O: A well balanced and tart beer. Not an American Wild vinegar bomb, for which it deserves gratitude. I would give this another chance.

Meravigliosa all’olfatto, purtroppo deludente al palato. Leggermente acida lascia la sensazione di frutta da estratto o aromi.

Bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A big funky fruity nose. The flavor is big sweet funky cherry skins. Very complex.

nimbleprop (7096) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle at Centrolina DC pours a clear amber with some creamy, white head. Nose has some dried cherry, some cherry juice too, a little raisin, a little funk, some malt. Flavor follows, light malt, a little brown sugar, raisins, cherries, prunes, light vinegar. Dry finish. Another well done.

Travlr (20269) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle sample at Iron Gate. Clear bright amber red color, white head with delicate lacing. Aroma of very dusty attic corners, cherries, dates. Taste is sweet and sour cherry with light tannin and light citrus. Very tasty.

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 (246) - 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 (4265) - 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

Deutlich saurer Fruchtantrunk. Marmelade, würzig, erfrischend, konstant saurer. Vollmundig, gut. 10/11/11/12//11
