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.

krumbum (964) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 20, 2016
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.

abemorsten (3565) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2016
33 cl flaske delt på RBHD-treff på Fjøløy. Disig oransjegyllen kropp med antydning til en lys film. I starten er aromaen preget av neglelakkfjerner, men når denne får luftet seg litt er lukten meget innbydende med deilige oksiderte, fruktige og syrlige dufter. Deilig syrlig, fruktig og oksidert. Nydelig!

teorn88 (6473) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2013
75cl bottle shared by Colin at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a slightly hazy deep ruby/amber color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is fruity with loads of tart cherry notes and some citrus. Taste is well balanced, gently sweet and acidic with notes of cherries and light dust and citrus. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated. Very good and certainly better than the Rubus.

Lukaduke (3016) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Pours a rosey copper color with a finger of fizzy foam that settles out quickly. Nice soft rustic beer with a dusty field grain backbone that is enhanced by tart cherry skin, wet earth stem and pits, lingering vinous acidity and elegant balance between fruit and grain. Crushable and unique.

Davros (2782) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 12, 2013
Pours ruby-tinged amber with a quickly fading head. Nose shows cherry, brett, soft light malt and lemon. There’s a bit of the cherry as a flavour too but it’s pretty restrained. Some acidity makes things refreshing before some light malt, brett and a soft bitterness roll through. Carbonation is suitably high, while the body is light, working perfectly.

tomer (2906) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - MAR 5, 2014
Draught, small stable pinkish creamy head, clear beautifull deep red colour, aroma of plums, cherries, and leather with a woody hint, flavour of plums, cherries and olives, light mellow fruity sourness, light bodied, long light sour olive aftertaste. Sinfully drinkable.

bdunhill (255) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2014
This Italian Kriek is a great blend of sweetness without much of the sour tones of its Belgian counterparts. With little aroma but a rich full bodied appearance. It tastes sweet on the tongue and doesn’t linger for long. Great pairing with spicy foods.
