Duchesse De Bourgogne is a fruit beer. Not many people would love this kind of beer but it is excellent. The aroma is strong and you can really smell the different kinds of fruit in this beer. Good head and nose. As a traditional beer its not a great beer but for wine lovers this is a wonderful choice to drink. I think it pairs very well with Miss Vickies BBQ kettled potato chips.

Poured from an 11 OZ bottle into a tulip glass. The appearance is a nice burgundy color with a small white head. Has a very strong wine aroma. Excellent beer.

Aroma licht zurig met vleugje vanille. Weinig schuim, prachtige, heldere roodbruine kleur. Smaak heerlijk zurig, licht fruitig. nauwelijks zoet, eerder moutig. Mag naar mijn gevoel wel iets minder koolzuur hebben. Hoedanook een van de betere vertegenwoordigers van het genre en een echte aanrader.

Testad på Mellbygatans ölskola. Djupt röd färg, fin att bara titta på. En doft som överraskar med vinäger och Karlssons klister, skumt. Smaken är djup och speciell med vinäger och röda bär ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 25 cl. Je nai pas trop lhabitude de cette sorte de bire mais je dois dire que lexprience est concluante. Fort belle couleur rouge fonc. Nez de fruits genre cerise et dj laigre, le vinaigre (balsamique). En bouche, mme dominants et un quilibre entre laigreur et le sucre en font une bire trs agrable.

A 750ml corked and caged bottle with an expiry date of December 2016, poured into a Cantillon ballon glass. It poured a clear reddish brown colour with a red hue and a one finger khaki head that has decent retention and leaves lots of nice lacing. Aromas are sour, tart, cherry, red wine, oak and sweet vinegar. Tastes sweet and sour but leaning a bit more towards sweet. Cherry, grape, cranberry and oak with a hint of balsamic vinegar. Light to medium bodied with moderate prickly carbonation. Overall, I am a huge fan of sour beers and this was a little on the sweet side for me. However, it was a still a good beer and easy to drink.

Strong sour apple smell with some funk. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thick persistent buff head with tight bubbles. Big sour flavors of turpentine, floral notes with some balancing sweetness. A lingering finish, medium carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Really interesting.

Aromat mocno beczkowy i piwniczny, jest ocet ale i wiśnie. Smak cukrowo słodki, lajtowo kwaśny z odrobiną octu winnego. W smaku wiśnie, wino, dębina. Posmak cukrowo karmelowy. Średnio w kierunku słabo.

Flaska frn belgoldan. Disig rdbrun vtska. Doft av syrliga krsbr, tr, stall och jordkllare. I smak:syrliga rda br. Jst, h, torkad frukt och stall. Ganska st men blir en ganska trevlig balans mot syran. Frenklat s kan man likna den vid en syrlig cherry coke
