Low graduation, red brown, bubble continues throughout the beer and taste bitter but fruity flavor.

330 ml bottle. Pours a tawny mahogany brown color with reddish hue. Brief creamy beige head. Intensely aromatic nose has notes of sour cherries, nail polish remover, oak and alcohol. First sip is intensely tart and acidic, like balsamic vinegar. Earthy and funky with Sour Cherry notes. Quite unique. A real taste experience. Definitely worth seeking out.

Bottle at Horse, Berlin. [I have only a rating for this beer but no review, because I couldnt write a review when I tried this one. I am going to drink it again soon and write a proper review.]

Always a treat to find the Duchesse on tap. Near pitch-perfect Flanders red, with a huge acidic sourness followed by a sweet, friendly middle and a tart, oak-vanilla tinged finish. A little goes a long way, but damn is it tasty.

tap/strefa piwa. miedziane z białą, drobnopęcherzykową pianą, ktra szybko redukuje się do zera. w aromacie woda po ogrkach kiszonych, przejrzałe winogrona, po ogrzaniu zmywacz do paznokci. w smaku początkowo kwaśne, na finiszu wyraźnie słodkie. niestety w posmaku rwnież aceton. trudno się pije nawet 0,3ml

Vackert rubinrd. Syrlig doft med vingertoner och rda syrliga krsbr. En ljuvlig stsur smak med en massa rda syrliga br, frmst krsbr, och lite jst plus ett gng underbara svrdefinierade smaknyanser, en liten fin fruktstma balanserar syrligheten, mycket fyllig med en behaglig eftersmak plus en speciell krvhet som ligger kvar lnge i lngt bak i munnen.

datrael (295) - Krakw, POLAND - NOV 21, 2016
Aromat bardzo winny, ale bardziej w stylu wina domowego, kwaśny, drożdżowy, nuty przejrzałych owocw. W wyglądzie ciemna czerwień wpadająca w brąz, nad nią lekka beżowa piana. W smaku słodkie z kwaskowatą kontrą, bardzo owocowe-dominują wiśnie, do tego porzeczki, maliny, agrest, ponadto nuty domowego wina, nieco brettw. W ustach całkiem bogate, ciało średnie, całość dość słodka z lekką kwasowością, smaczne, choć z czasem człowiek chciałby do tej słodyczy dodać więcej kwasu dla rwnowagi. Ale i tak dobre piwo

Zeer lekker gefermenteerd bier. Mooie roodbruine kleur en een krachtig zoet-zuur aroma. Ook het bier is zoet-zuur. Tonen van rozenbottel, azijn, wijn, framboos, stoofpeer.

Lovely aroma of candy cherries. The acidity is strong, but balanced by its sweetness. Concentrated cherries. Amazing beer.

BottleBest before 1.5 years. Im traditionally not fond of sours but this did it for me. Aroma: Earthy, fruity vinegar notes made me wonder if Id like this. Appearance: Dark, slightly cloudy with a nice light tan, creamy head. poured with vigor which faded fairly quick but retained lacing. Taste: Starts with a big sweet/sour fruity fig and cherry champaign-like quality and follows up with a bite of ginger and raison and finishes with a dry woody vinegar/soy and spice. Quite a journey. Palate: very lively and full bodied with a bit of the sour pucker. This may be my gateway to sours.
