COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Una tira laltra.
Chiamata cos dal nome botanico del frutto Prunus Avium o Cerasus in base alla variet la Prunus 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, 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.

On tap at Whats Brewing 2015, day 1. Copper body with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity with vinegar and cherries. Taste is sweet and sour, malty, mild alcohol notes, red berries. Quite strong berry taste. Fullbodied fruity aftertaste with a vinous note.

davidezdonz (391) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - MAY 16, 2016
A 330ml bottle with a best before date of September 2017 and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. It poured a hazy orange golden colour with a thin white head that doesnt stick around and only leaves some light lacing. Aromas were tart, sour, cherry, apple vinegar and light funkiness. Taste was like the aroma with tart, sour cherry, sour apple and lemon. Dry, crisp, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall nice and easy to drink, but I preferred Rubus slightly more.

Pours a nice reddish orange color. Aroma is full of dark fruit, yeasty and malts. Big almost grape like flavor with hints of something chocolate like. A real good beer.

Marko (5236) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 2, 2016
From bottle at the Craft Beer Festival in Zagreb, Croatia. Orange-golden body with a small whtie head. Sourish cherry aroma with solid tartness mixing with honeyish notes, slightly funky. Cherry taste, lowery, pollen, slightly tart (the tartness comes from cherries, not from the yeast, and its quite well integrated). Nice, pleasant tart fruit beer, balanced for what it is, glad to have tried it!

martin00sr (3069) - Haderslev, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2016
Tap @Bir&Fud, Roma. Cloudy amber, small white head. Sour berry aroma. Sour, acetic flavour. Tart and slightly woody. Has some sugary sweetness hidden behind the vinegar. No prunes for me but still quite nice.

krumbum (1073) - truckee, California, USA - MAR 20, 2016
Huge tart acidic aromas rains and plums come to mind. Hazy orange thin ring of head. So smooth dried prune full body slides slowly to a mild acidic sour finish. I have never liked prunes so much.

Sarlacc83 (2091) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle shared by Justin. Thanks! A: Mostly clear orange color with a thin dying white head. N: Vinegar, cherry, acetone, some cracker, a bit of funk. T: Very, very tart, light citrus. M: Light body, crisp carbonation, no alcohol. O: A well balanced and tart beer. Not an American Wild vinegar bomb, for which it deserves gratitude. I would give this another chance.

Meravigliosa allolfatto, purtroppo deludente al palato. Leggermente acida lascia la sensazione di frutta da estratto o aromi.
