On tap at Town Hall Brewery. Aroma of sweet and sour apples, cranberries, and dark fruits. Deep red-brown body with white head. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel. Great fruit taste to this ale - it’s initially sweet with apple and vanilla, then finishes with a nice tartness of sour apple. Clean aftertaste.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 Pours a dark red colour with little to no head. Aroma of cherries and something sour. Flavour is cherries, wood, barnyard and some sitrus in the aftertaste. Sweet aftertaste. A fine beer that i often drink.

RiverHorse (457) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 16, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 Pours a really pretty amber color into the fluted glass. There was a nice off-white head and flickers of lacing. The scent was very sour with hints of cherries, vingegar, spices and some barnyard funkiness. A quick sweetness on the front of the tongue gives way quickly to a puckering sour flavor. A slight reminder of a sweet red wine. The finish is very clean with some sour notes. I was very fond of this beer, as I am finally warming to the sour ale stlye.

Thanks to OldRaspy! Pours a burnt, rusty brown with a decent tan head and good lacing. Nose of apple cider but is subdued. Flavor is sour, tart, sweet with some dark fruits. Bubbly on the palate.

Edited. Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Dark mahogany brown with a small tan head. Aroma is heavy on vinegary tartness, caramel, perfume, candy, some strawberry, Taste is quite thick and sweet with a lot of cane sugar and bready stuff. The trademark Duchesse vinegary sour finish is delicious and well rounded with a nice oaky undertone. Good staying power and a thick mouthfeel.

ChtiBreizh (456) - Rennes, FRANCE - JUL 14, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2016 A brown/reddish beer with almost no head, leaving little lacing. Aroma of sour apples, cherries, prunes, balsamic vinegar, acetone. Medium to high sweetness and sourness. Average carbonation, medium body, slick to oily mouthfeel. Good but it would benefit from losing a bit of sweetness in my opinion.

Very nice, although not up to the standards of Rodenbach. Sweet and sour without leaving beer territory.
