Pours ruby with small tan head. Nose is dusty, woody, tannic, with cherry and plum. Flavor initially of sour cherry, slight maltiness, plum and apple and grape. Nice, dry finish. Slightly chalky mouthfeel. So very good.

750 ml bottle. Aroma has a mild fruit and stonger wood aroma on the nose. Red body with beige head that disipates with each pour from bottle. Cherry fruit flavors along with sour presence that was overpowering as some sours can be. Mild acidity and smooth sipping beer on the palate.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle sampled. red with a brownish hue, and an off-white head. Aroma of sweetness, fermented cherries, and oak. The flavor is sweet upfront, fermented cherries, oak, and finishes moderately tart. Decent body. Good brew.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2007
Shared by Retro42, pours a dark amber brew with a fizzy light tan head. Aroma of dark caramel malt, sour cherries, and some dark berries. Taste is highly carbonated, sour fruity, and a touch of oak. Finish is dry and light sour that ends quickly.

Lovely reddish-brown beer with an abundant light tan head. There is a sharp vinegar aroma but subtle fruit lies underneath. The taste is acidic, then notes of strawberries and raspberries emerge. Watery mouthfeel.

250 ml brown bottle.
Best before Sept. 9 07
Reddish brown with no real head to speak of, just a thin cap of tight bubbles.

Aroma is Balsamic vinegar and oak and sour cherries.

Flavor is sweet and sour cherries with a touch of balsamic acidity on the finish.

Body is a touch thin, but it is still a good beer.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 9, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2007 [bottle at Publick House in Brookline] Excellent aroma, slightly sour, with plenty of cherry fruit. Reddish brown in color. Sweet flavors of cherry and slight maltiness blend well with a sour background. Medium to light bodied, with a dry finish. Sourness builds over time-- really nice.

JK (5732) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Flavor is standard, sour with some balsamic vinegar and just a little fruit sweetness, raspberry maybe. Flavor is lightly sour, not as sour as the grand cru. Sadly the palate is very thin, this beer is just too light in body. Joewbrew knows the Duchesse de Bourgogne is better but he won’t admit it.

Thanks to Retro42 for sharing. Dark amber color with an excellent sour cherry nose. Sour body with earthy characteristics. The Dudchess on steroids.
