Bottle shared by EDA. Poured amber with a lot of beige head. Aroma is buttery with a little bit of sourness/tartness. The flavor is very fruity (mostly cherries) and also buttery. Very smooth palate.

Pours a thick off-white head. Red, clear and has light carbonation. Sour cherries, a tad floral. Caramel. Sweet, sweet, sweet! Cherries, pomegranate. Light and oily. No fizz... Finish is quite fast, though it lingers a tiny bit. Excellent!

Nose is heavy red berries with acidic notes, some hay, barn yard, feel is medium, carb is quite heavy, taste follows nose with more sweet, fruity notes, red apple acids, lemon, balanced alcohol note.

I truly enjoyed this Belgium. VERY SWEET. I warn you that it is very sweet. So be prepared and judge it on the aroma, appearance, and taste(expect a sour/vinegar taste).

A beer with a very bizarre taste. I can’t say that i’ve tried anything like this before although whether thats a good thing or not...

Ambassador (14) - Nørrebro Bryghus, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
Pure balsamico - and a quality one too - in the nose. Flavor is sour of course with strong cherry flavors to balance. I’ve had it with foie gras and that’s a match made in heaven. This might be my favourite beer.

TheQuaffer (14) - Epsom, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle from Ghent. Pours a reddish brown colour with a thin head. A fruity & sweet smelling aroma. Has a well balanced sour taste. Give me a Duchesse over a Rody every time!
