3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a brownish color, with a nice head and good lacing. Sour aroma, very wine-like. Looks and tastes like a red wine. Vinegary, tart flavor. Can't really detect any hops here. Good, interesting, but not my favorite style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity, berry and brown sugar aroma. Dark red clear liquid, white-brown head. Well balanced high sweetness and sourness. Bitter-sweet finish, soft carbonation. One of the best in its style!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle from SAQ. into tulip glass, pours a clear dark red, almost brown. nice thick creamy off white head. lots going on in the aroma. incredible. lots of fruit; raisin, plum, apricot, cherry. almost like a red wine. the taste is mostly sour, but a little sweet at the same time. finish is dry, and leaves a taste of oak barrel in the mouth. the flavours really combine well in this beer. very complex and delicious.

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 Tap at Dilly Delli in Cincinnati. I have recently updated my rating on the Duchesse. I found the first sample to be off-putting but I have since acquired a taste for this odd brew. A very cindery, vinegar flavor which you might think is bad but quite the contrary. After a few sips you’ll be coming back. Give this a try - twice.

330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny off-white head which vanishes almost immediately. Dark red body. Aroma of vinegar and apple cider. Quite sour, and also sweet at the same time. Dry down the throat, which suits the style well.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark beer with a small head, strong sour aromas from the beginning almost like a wine, the flavor is quite strong and bitter, with a mild malt flavor, but a strong bitter aftertaste.
