Fantastic growing, now billowing flesh-colored head, ruby/amber body and effervescent carbonation. Definite tart cherry aroma, but accompanied by other dark fruit, light cocoa, and a waning acidity. Starts out nice and sharp, followed by a curious, steak flavor...not really bad, but unexpected. Cherries and berries abound. If was a bit more sour, and a little less acidic, it would be excellent.

11.2 oz bottle: pours rich ruby mahogany color with a light tan head. the aroma is slightly sweet but mostly sours cherry with some grape notes. the taste is unlike anything i have tasted before. the flavor is sweet and sour at the same time. reminds me of balsomic vinegar. very fruity and wine like. cherry, and apple with some grape flavors. the finish is long. nice slightly sour malty fruity nutty taste. unbeleiveable.

Zapach z butelki: Słodowo-owocowy. Wiśnie, winogrona, stajnia i nuty octowe. Piana: Orzechowa, głośno syczy i opada formując średniopęcherzykowy pierścień. Trochę oblepia szkło. Kolor: Orzechowy, rubinowo-koniakowy. Zapach: Likierowo-winny. Nuty stajenne wymieszane z pralinkami. Wiśnie, czerwone owoce. Nuty czekolady mlecznej. Smak: Zdecydowanie kwaśne, do tego duża karmelowość, w tle czekolada. Dużo cytrusów, nut szampańskich. Dochodzą do głosu także nuty orzecha włoskiego. Tekstura: Kleiste i winne. Pozostawia ściągający osad. Nasycenie Wysokie. Goryczka: Niska. Pijalność: Średnio-wysoka. To kwaśne piwo okazało się zaskakująco pijalne. W przeciwieństwie do wcześniej degustowanego faro z Lindemansa dzikie nuty w tym piwie nie szokują musztardowo-wymiocinowym charakterem, tylko dają się okiełznać i złagodzić karmelowo-owocowej kontrze. Łącznie daje to naprawdę przyjemny efekt, pijąc Duchesse De Bourgogne miałem poczucie obcowania z naprawdę wyjątkowym i nieprzeciętnym napitkiem. Naprawdę wyborne - gorąco polecam każdemu, kto nie próbował jeszcze kwaśnych piw, zacząć właśnie od tego. Nabyłem w jednym z marketów Carrefour za ok. 9 zł.

bottiglia da 0.75, colore ambrato scuro quasi nero, con una schiuma fine e persistente, all’odero risalta la frutta mentre al palato si sentono ciliegie per finire con una nota acida, buonissima

Precioso color rubí oscuro y espuma efímera. El aroma es ácido, avinagrado, y el sabor agridulce y complejo. Es una cerveza muy personal, a mí no me gusta, me recuerda a las lambic azucaradas, estilo que detesto. Quizás con un buen maridaje.

the aroma is wonderful and reminds me of fresh fruits with a crisp bite. The appearance is dark and somewhat red. The taste is good with a sour initial flavor followed by the flavor of a belgian ale that fades away quickly to that of funky fruit. Decent beer overall, but based on the aging this beer has gone through I expected more. Not even close to the top of my list for a sour/wild ale

bottle from Pivoljub. Aroma: tart, gentle citrusy, woody,low molasses, leather, horseblanket, some vanilla, chocolate and red currant. deep red-brown, with nice reddish tint, off white head with good retention, clear. light sweetness, medium bitterness, similar to aroma. bit more of acidic, winous feel, some gentle alcohol warmth, otherwise it hides its alcohol great. medium body, slick feel, creamy, fluffy, long finish that is slightly acidic and slightly sweet with some chocolate notes as well. lively, Overall: pleasant, complex, wished there were more in the bottle.

25cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Pours dark cherry red with a one finger light brown head. Aromas of balsamic vinegar, cherries, dates, oak. Taste: WOW! A continuation of the aromas, with notes of balsamic vinegar, cherries, oakiness pervades strong here, dark fruit, olives, dates. Medium body with a sweet acidic finish. Overall a very fine combination between the sour vinegar and the sweet cherry taste. Awesome sour flemish red which would be a good combination with Prosciutto and a Caprese salad or with a pasta dish...

On tap at Belgie in Utrecht. A bit too sweet for my taste, almost comparable to some Kriek beers. Nice head and beautiful glass.
