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.

On tap at Bir & Fud. Slightly hazy amber red brown beer, tidy pale pink head. Light palate, soft edges. Nice light cherries, not super sweet or super sour like so many cherry beers. Just nice cherry! Neutral finish. Very drinkable.

fiulijn (19369) - 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.

Flower petals in the nose, light berries. Light to medium sweet flavor with hints of metal, jammy and tangy berries. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, tangy finish with further tangy berry character. Novel stuff.

Rune (11365) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 7, 2012
From tap, 100ml at Bir&Fud. Red-amber body, low pink coloured body. Aroma of sweet fruits. Tart and sweet flavour of cherries. Dry ending. Very much on the sweet side. Ok, far from being a favourite drink, though (Roma, 30.03.2012).
