Zapach z butelki: Słodowo-owocowy. Wiśnie, winogrona, stajnia i nuty octowe. Piana: Orzechowa, głośno syczy i opada formując średniopęcherzykowy pierścień. Trochę oblepia szkło. Kolor: Orzechowy, rubinowo-koniakowy. Zapach: Likierowo-winny. Nuty stajenne wymieszane z pralinkami. Wiśnie, czerwone owoce. Nuty czekolady mlecznej. Smak: Zdecydowanie kwaśne, do tego duża karmelowość, w tle czekolada. Dużo cytrusów, nut szampańskich. Dochodzą do głosu także nuty orzecha włoskiego. Tekstura: Kleiste i winne. Pozostawia ściągający osad. Nasycenie Wysokie. Goryczka: Niska. Pijalność: Średnio-wysoka. To kwaśne piwo okazało się zaskakująco pijalne. W przeciwieństwie do wcześniej degustowanego faro z Lindemansa dzikie nuty w tym piwie nie szokują musztardowo-wymiocinowym charakterem, tylko dają się okiełznać i złagodzić karmelowo-owocowej kontrze. Łącznie daje to naprawdę przyjemny efekt, pijąc Duchesse De Bourgogne miałem poczucie obcowania z naprawdę wyjątkowym i nieprzeciętnym napitkiem. Naprawdę wyborne - gorąco polecam każdemu, kto nie próbował jeszcze kwaśnych piw, zacząć właśnie od tego. Nabyłem w jednym z marketów Carrefour za ok. 9 zł.

Malty, yeasty aroma. Clear brown, amber colour. Very fruity and sparkly. Getting some cranberrry taste, and some other red berries. Maybe some boysenberry as well. Very mild sour taste and medium bodied.

Aroma acido con un toque avinagrado, madera y caramelo y frambuesa. Sabor dulce residual con final acido!

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2013 Nice dark amber pour, with a quick acerbic palate. Taste is immediately sour, almost like an apple wine.

Bouteille 33cl au Wine More Time, Bordeaux. Un bel exemple de oud bruin flamande, arome et goût de vinaigre, un superbe équilibre entre acidité et amertume. Un délice!

large bottle 12/19/05. This is my first flemish sour and it was not at all what I expected. Extremely vinagar like in taste and smell. Very acidic. Reminded me of beer mixed with carbonated apple cider. Poured a cherry wood color with a decent head. I am going to have to try some others in this style but my first impressions are no better than average.

luvcasks (178) - USA - APR 16, 2006
Aroma: Some brett and lactic acid funk... with some sweet notes blended in Appearance: Clean, Dark Brown with reddish highlights pours with off white head which does not last too long Flavor: Starts off intriguingly tart and funky but is replaced with a flavor of cherries and some sweetness (Would be a nice after dinner drink) Palate: Complex flavors with dark fruit and cherries flooded over with some sour notes which finish slightly sweet on the tongue Overall: For a Flander’s red seems to be dumbed down a bit.. the sourness and funk is very restrained almost to it coming off a little too sweet. If it s possible this would be a gateway Sour beer (Better ones are Goudenband and Rodenbach)

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2010 This one has a very good-looking label! Remind me the MacCallahan advertisement on TV at least ten years ago... Colour is dark red; smells woody (probably the oak where the ale age), rotten strawberries. Sour flavour, between vinegar and wine, and the aroma too, except a touch of cherry. A very good flemish sour red ale.

Darker red pour with a beige head which disappated quickly. Aromas are sour cherry and candies sugar and slight malts as well. Candied sugar on first taste, followed by the sourness and cherries, and ends almost balsamic vinegarish. Not too sour and a Great beer.
