750 ml bottle. Champagne-like fizz. Deep, dark ruby colour. About 3mm of creamy foam. It starts with an interesting sour tasting with hints of vinegar, green apples and woodiness but ends in a still sweet kind of way. Comparison with wine are completely understandable. From all sour beers I have tasted this would be the one I would recommend first.

motthes (165) - Bamberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - APR 30, 2017
Das Duchesse de Bourgogne der Brouwerij Verhaeghe Vichte aus Belgien. 0,33L Flasche mit Gemlde als Etikett. Dunkelbraun im Glas mit Schaumrand. Fruchtig suerlicher Antrunk, eine Mischung aus Rotwein, Sekt und Champagner, dazu kommt noch der Geruch von Balsamicoessig. Am Anfang sehr gewhnungsbedrftig, aber dann wirds immer besser, man sollte hier nur kein Bier erwarten, so wie Ich. Eine wahre Geschmacksexplosion, schwierig zu trinken und schwierig zu bewerten!

Beergaard (335) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 25, 2017
Lovely Flemish sour ale. Sweeter than the average Flemish red/brown but still with a pungent kick of tart cherries and some herbal sensation.

kwas co sie zowie. w aromacie i smaku drewno, ocet winny, wiśnie, kompot wiśniowy. Slodkie po chwili mocno kwasne, orzezwiajace- zdecydowanie moje klimaty, wyraziste i robiace na mnie lepsze wrazenie niz nowy artrezan chateu.

Wiśnie, delikatna kwasność, trochę za duża słodycz, ciemne owoce. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

This may change my mind on Sours. Most complex beer Ive ever had the pleasure of trying. How many different sensations can you get out of one beer! Fantastic!

Niet mijn ding. Proeft naar geuze. Veel te zuur naar mijn smaak. Flesje weggegoten. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: APR 15, 2017 Birra flamish a mio parere spettacolare. Aroma dolciastro con spunti di acidulo. S, ma un acetato leggero e di classe. Mai invadente. Schiuma pi che cremosa aspetto piuttosto limpido, con ampi spazi di luce passanti. Gli aromi variano dai frutti a bacca rossa specie amarene sciroppate, a tratti mele verdi, e uva sultanina. Mix di sensazioni gradevoli fruttate al palato e bollicine di risalita nella norma. Gusto rotondo con chiare percezioni di dolce, vanigliato a tratti, e acidulo nel finale. Amaro praticamente nullo e persistenza gusto-olfattiva breve (5/6 secondi). Birra pi che piacevole. Abbinata a sapori forti (gorgonzola, nduja calabrese, lupini locali) da un mix di gusti di notevole rilevanza. Unaltra please!
