UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014
Look: Very light white head which quickly disappears; dark amber/reddish, brown - almost cola like.
Smell: Very nice balance of sour and sweetish notes; cherry, grape and a little brandy/rum notes, all in all very fresh and inviting .
Taste: The sour, tart notes increased compared to smell, still reminds me of berries with some citrus notes, but still some sweetness to be found with some spice. all this gives the beer a nice fresh, light kick.
Mouthfeel: Nice to sip, medium body, good balanced fizzy carbonation with fruity taste which leads to a nice finish. sip leaves medium sour notes to play with long after.
Overall: Excellent sour ale with strong fruity feel, fresh and enjoyable to drink.

Dark liquid, small head. Strange winelike aroma. Medium body, no carbonation. Taste is sweet and bitter.

Draft - looks like brown sugar with a hint of this dark red wine color. Tart, hints of oak, red grapes, and cherry. With all the oak aging it tastes more like a wine then a beer.

Tap. I’m not usually a fan of sour beers, and while this one smells a little too sour, it’s pretty tasty. Hints of apple and cherry. A little too much apple cider vinegar taste. Would drink again.

Notes of sour mash mixed with vanilla rise from the deep mahogany body topped with a light caramel head. Tastes rich and sour, light on the tongue but heavy on the heart as if the duchesse herself had taken time away from her birds to impart some piece of weighty knowledge on your soul. Overall one of my favorite beers.

Notes of candy and fruit, dark reddish-brown colour. Initial taste is very strange, almost like a plum wine sans the alcohol bite of a stronger beer. Sour fruit lingers with after-taste.

Nice, balanced red ale. Not as piquant as Rodenbach Grand Cru. Full tasting. Nice level of light malty sequence.

bottle. Pours deep brownish red with a small off white head. The nose is caramel, plum, and raisin. Def. sour taste. Carbonation is nice and stron on the tounge. Easy to drink but not my cup of tea. Im sure those that enjoy ciders would also enjoy this.

Light, light sourness, wood, apple, tiny bit of cardboard, easy to drink. I’ve had this lots of times, never difficult to finish off a 75cl bottle.
