4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells like vinegar, tastes a lot like a top notch cider, and really quite good. I love this style, and this is a nice example.

Whoa, pretty complex stuff. Bottle, poured a deep red, just about maroon, clear. Light tan head, little lace. Ok, where to start. Aroma is almost wine like. Taste is vinegary, though multiple fruits seem present. I’m talking about grapes, prunes, raisens, and apples. I can invision all these things when I take a sip. Lightly sweetend finish. Not a bad brew, evern for someone who enjoys the more bitter beers.

Highly recommendable. Has a bit of a white wine character and esteurs resemble somewhat of a mix between brettanomyces, vinegar and malt. Everything well balanced in a superbly brewed beer.

Wet oaky aroma like the one you would expect from a cellar, also hints of cherry. The taste is like currant and other sour berries. It has a fresh short bitterness similar to sour grapes.

Duchesse was one of the first sour beers that I ever tried and I love it. Beautiful blend of sweet and sour.

tap. Dark color, short head. Aroma is fruity. Flavour is fruity too, very acid. Full body over the palate.

A well balanced top fermented Belgian ale. The blending of 8 and 18 mouth aged ale shows in the sweet flowery aroma . The taste of this beauty is equally refined. Sweets Fruits and spices seam to great the taste buds before wine like characteristics take over. The ale finishes well, and has a pleasant aftertaste of fresh spices. As a wine lover, I feel this is ale is the perfect gateway into the world of beers /ales for the uninitiated. Possibly my favorite Belgian

Bottle. Red brown with light head. Hint of vinegar and apple aroma. Slight sour and then almost a sweet cider flavor appears. Extremely enjoyable. (Had a tasting at Beer Church, bought a few more bottles to enjoy at home.)

25cl bottle, rubybrown with head that disappears quick, aroma is sour and fruity, taste is more sweet than sour, oaky.., aftertaste dry and sweet. A woman’s beer as we would say..cfr. the label :-)
this a surprising beer doesnt taste like it smells, as i told a customer that just smelled and didnt want it. He didnt get home sober.. ;-)
very good beer!
