33 cL bottle, from fonefan. Pours clear and golden brown with a lacing tan head. Sour lacto aroma with reminisence of yogurt. Flavour is sweet sugarish and sour. Light citric note following. Ends with a lingering brown sugarish note. Light off note too.

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2003
A deep red beer with an fine head. The aroma is sharp, fruity and sweet - probably stemming from a mixture of wild- and controlled fermentation. The flavor is sweet in the beginning, then sharp - which lingers a long time, and the aftertaste is sharp and sour. A good beer, but not as good as I had expected after trying The Duchesse.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark brown, filtered and clear with a creamy head. Sweet at first, but then some dry metallic notes take over with a tart finish. Lovely. 040899

oh6gdx (20308) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2006

omhper (19365) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2007
Bottled (1998 vintage) at Man in the Moon, Stockholm. Clear dark ruby, minimal head. Lightly acidic cherry aroma. Fairly sweet with rounded gentle mouthfeel. Balsamic mouthfilling cherry flavour with some freshening acidity. Mild and creamy despite fairly light body and concentrated flavour. Superb! If it would lose some sweetness it would reach heaven!

anders37 (16691) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 29, 2006
Bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a tan head. Weak acid aroma. Sweet sour flavor. A little thin, leaving you with a sweet aftertaste.

Sharp sour brown beer in the Duchesse du Bourgogne mode. This beer is sweeter and with a herby medicinal note in the finish. Very nice.

Beautiful color, dark mahogany with red sparkles; small creamy head. The aroma is fruity, moderately sour, creamy, and there is some vinous wood too. Good mouthfeel quite round, as it still has some pleasant sweetness; malt flavor corrected by the typical Verhaeghe winey sour and fruity touch. The bitterness is quite low, and the final medium short. Complex and beautifully aged.

Clean dark amber color; creamy head. Original aroma: malt, sourness, cherries, toffee, caramel, cookies… Smooth, sweet and lightly sour, very similar to Duchesse de Bourgogne (therefore good!). Dangerously drinkable!
