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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2007 Had a slight argument with my wife on where to eat for lunch in Brugge. I’m glad she won because The Four Winds had Rodenbach. This beer improved my thirst and my mood. I had another to sure. A mildly sour beer with a touch of cherry. It just isn’t what I am used to, but I really enjoyed it. A great thirst quenching quality in a sour beer - not expected.

Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice quickely diminishing light tan head. Nice dark earthy sour cherry nose. Good carbonation and a nice sour kick up front. Great earthy barnyard flavor as well as ripe and sour cherries. The palate is kinda fleeting and is probably my only knock on this beer. Very nice and I am so happy it is now back in MN.

Aroma is sour, not too much though. Pours a nice reddish with a small white head and nice lacing. Flavor is not overly sour, and finishes bitter. Lots of carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good, not great, but a nice mellow version of the style.

On tap at My Place, Newtown, CT. This beer arrived at the table a clear deep ruby color with a moderate, almost creamy, off-white head. Heavy aroma reminded me more of a cabernet than a beer with lots of grape and oakiness. The flavor is more cherry than grape, with the oak much more subdued than the aroma. A bit sour, but by no means puckering. Also, a bit thin in the mouthfeel. At $6 a glass (8 oz glass at that) it was a bit expensive.
