COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una tira l’altra.
Chiamata così dal nome botanico del frutto – Prunus Avium o Cerasus in base alla varietà – la Prunus è stata ottenuta aggiungendo in infusione a fine fermentazione alla Duchessa circa il 20 per cento di ciliegie fresche con tutto il nocciolo. Diversamente dalle classiche kriek di scuola belga, è una birra non eccessivamente acida – mantenendo una certa morbidezza caratteristica della birra base – e per nulla stucchevole, visto che ad un ingresso dolce-acido segue un retrogusto amaro molto bilanciato.

Duchessa with fresh cherries infused. February release.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Bottle shared with friend. Beautiful blood orange color, non existing head. Aroma is yeast, fruits, cherries. Taste is pretty tart, almost vinegary, lots of funk, lots of cherry and some metallic taste. Sweetness comes along nicely. Long lasting after taste. Very nice attempt at a kriek.

herrklemann (386) - Graz, AUSTRIA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle. Rating by my girlfriend, I was only allowed a sip. Leather, sour cherries, plums, a bit yeasty, quite funky and very clean. Taste is dominated by tart notes of cherries, lightly sweet with nice bitter notes and a tarty slightly funky finish. Creamy, medium body, with soft carbonation. Very good.

kaserov (887) - Oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 29, 2017
Color dorado, ligeramente turbio, con capa de espuma blanca de dos dedos de grosor (rápida formación, burbujas amplias y poca retención). Carbonatación suave. Textura acuosa y ligeramente chispeante. Violento aroma, muy ácido, casi vinagre por completo, se nota la madera, y tiene toques como de sulfuro. En boca, todo acidez. Cerezas por un tubo, madera. Recuerdos de sidra (aunque la acidez es casi más elevada). Postgusto ácido mínimo (se puede paladear la madera largo rato). Nada elegante, aunque tampoco creo que estuviera pensada para serlo.

colui72 (1071) - HONG KONG - JUN 25, 2017
Pours reddish amber, fizzy with a quite a small white head and good lacing. Very sour to the nose, with strong cherry. Tastes quite sour, in a pleasant way, with strong notes of cherry. Medium sweet to balance, little bitterness to finish. Light bodied ale, thin feel, lively carbonated, astringent finish with some bitter after taste. Enjoyable fruit beer, properly made.

tfredvik (2017) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2017
Cloudy, deep orange body with a small, frothy, short-lived, off-white head that leaves some lacing. Very strong aroma of barnyard, manure, horse blanket, leather, tart berries, vinegar and solvent. Very strong flavour of barnyard and other funky stuff, leather, fermented and rotten fruits, with cherry pits and caramel in the back. Very little sweetness, moderate sour and acidic. Mid-bodied, dry, moderate carbonation. I guess this is what you grownups like, but this is too special and violent for me.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Vinmonpolet Online]
