Duchesse de Bourgogne(Księżna Burgundii) ma barwę ciemno czerwoną, wygląda niczym czerwone wino. Piana skromna, utrzymuje się na powierzchni piwa, próbując pozostawiać po sobie lacing. Oj dzieje się w aromacie, na pierwszy plan wysuwa się extra dzikość, czuć stajnie, końską derkę, trochę skóry, następnie wchodzą kwaśne,cierpkie wiśnie, pierwsze skojarzenie padło na czerwone wino, które daje winnych aromatów, na dalszym planie zaznaczają się także subtelna wanilia, drewno oraz ocet(z kategorii nienachalnych). Smak to już w ogóle poezja, jest kwaśno nie za mocno, nie jest przegięte, ale jest wysoka kwaśność, dziko(w kierunku skóry, stajni, końskiej derki, nawet lekko wpadające w migdał), dalej zaznaczają się cierpkie wiśnie, nutka drewna, a całość wywodzi konkluzje kojarzące się z czerwonym winem. Wysycenie wysokie, nie przeszkadza w żaden sposób. Pijalność wysoka, choć dzikość i kwaśność poniekąd zmusza aby dłużej delektować się tym przepysznym trunkiem.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 Birra dal colore ramato scuro. Schiuma fine e persistente. All’olfatto sentori di aceto, legno marcio e mela. Al palato corpo ben strutturato, si ripropongono le note giŕ percepite all’olfatto, aceto, legno e mela asprissima. Per gli estimatori tale birra deve essere eccezionale ma purtroppo non amo le Lambic e tutte le birre acide. Devo ammettere perň che sono birre dal forte carattere, particolari e molto lavorate. La duchesse poi č eccellente.

Aromat wyraźnie estrowy. Banan, melon, trochę zmywacz do paznokci. W smaku zaskakująco słodkie, ale kwaśność też jest wyraźna, dochodzą wiśnie. Bardzo dobre

Bottle. Dark, very dark, red with some brown glimmers, clear, with small, white and very solid head and good lacing. Aroma is full of cherry with some fresh acidic and vinegar notes. Light to medium body, sweet start smoothly becoming a light sour finish and oily and sticky mouth feel. Very good. I can become a fan of sour styles with more stuff like this :-)

Bottle at Herman - Dark red color with small off-white head. Taste is heavy on balsamico vinegar, dark wood, port wine, apples. Strongly acidic. Liked it but is maybe a bit too much vinegar, actually.

shared a 750 of this with a dear friend. Wow super surprising at how much like a light wine this one is. Definitely some tart berry in its finish. Taste beer would drink again

250ml bottle at OnlYou, Jimei. Pours red brown with a minimal head. Sour aroma of berries. Sour finish but some underlying sweetness. A nice beer.

Cybion (186) - Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Bottle, 330ml. Pours clear VERY dark red with minimal soapy off-white head. Small amount of large carb bubbles visible. No lacing. Aroma is very vinous and sour, with strong notes of cherry, rich, spicy fruitcake, muscavado sugar, brandy, liquorice balsamic vinegar in the back. Somewhat musty, woody, also something lactic; strong cheese maybe, as an undercurrent. Acetone also present. Very mildly sweet sometimes. Taste is much sweeter and fruitier with some blackcurrent and maybe even raspberry coming through with the sour cherry and vinous stuff at the forefront. This is followed up by a dry, mild, lactic sourness with some lingering light, sticky cereal malt. Balsamic vinegar is a constant presence. Comes across as quite syrupy in flavour but the body is light and the texture is smooth, with some moderate carbonation lending more weight to the sour attack. Like it but I’d prefer if it were little bit less syrupy and vinegar-y.
