An intersting flemish red. malty and dark but still has a nice tart cherry finish. great mouthfeel, very creamy texture. similar to the rodenbach but not as fruit-like. well worth sampling.

tart, invigorating. constantly surprising with many fruits emerging towards the bottom of the glass. looks a treat

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2008 An effervescent six percenter that’s light, citric and cidery with a distinct musk odor that’s absolutely truffles. Would probably go great in Autumn as a better complement than a dry, crisp and fruity white wine, to mild cheeses, artisan bread and fruit.

A favorite of a friend of mine and I also think it's a real good red beer...

UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 Dark ruby-brown. Big and fruity, vinous nose. Extremely sweet with big cherry and apple candy notes. A little too syrupy on the palate. Some sourness tries to tame the sweetness, but there’s not nearly enough of it. Only a slight yeastiness contributes to the flavor profile. Only a hint of alcohol is noticeable. Bit of metallic and band-aid flavors. Very, very mild hop flavors. Overall, not complex enough and much too sweet for my buds. Finish is bland and uneventful.

Not as lean and assertive as Rodenbach Grand Cru, the Duchesse has a fatter malt backbone and more rounded flavors. The iron, passion fruit flavors are there in spades. Connessieurs of fine beer will rejoice when they taste this one. One the best in the world.
