Zlotta (4135) - Hagen, GERMANY - AUG 12, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2016 0.25 l bottle from ’Wines & More’ (Leiden). Deep brownish red with a beige head. Sweetish-sourish, fruity aroma of vinegar, sour cherries, a touch of red grapes and oak. Quite sweet, a bit sourish and fruity taste of vinegar, brown sugar, red wine, sour cherries and oak, followed by a short, moderately tart and a little dry finish. Medium body, quite effervescent and a little astringent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Very good beer, not not as good as I tasted it for the first time, but that’s probably due to the development of my taste rather than the beer itself.

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.

(Tap) I like this. It’s not too sour and has a really nice malt flavor. Maybe it’s got a little too much "vinegar" flavor in it.

Bottle. Aroma is of apple cider, pear, light lemon, and unripe blackberries. Sweet taste up front with a solid sour backbone. Flovor is a nice blackberry and sour apple finish. Clean and short finish.

12 oz bottle at home. In a word, interesting. Or maybe complex. Pours a really appealing warm reddish brown with a nice tight tan head. Smells like a Belgian with some cherries. Taste is sweet upfront- notes of dried fruit (raisins), cherries, sweet malt. Tartness comes later- reminiscent of an ascetic apple cider. Somewhat vinegary and slightly spicy. Bit of a short, dry finish. Nice and tart, but somehow I am left with impression it is overly sweet. Great, but not amazing.

12oz bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep mahogany with a velvety, lasting tan head. Nose of pear and dried fruits more akin to wine, trying to remember "it’s a sour, it’s a sour". Complex flavour, with a mix-bag of sweet and tart, with apple and cherry being predominant. Sweet, smooth finish. Lots of carbonation on the tongue initially. Different and tasty.

McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 18, 2015
Deep brown-red in colour with a fine fading dark white head. Aromas of quality balsamico vinegar, dark cherry and wood develop with notes of earthyness and dark olives. Rather complex! Some fruity-wood sweetness hits your palate at first quickly changing into a pleasant vinegar sweet-bitter-acidity. Softly carbonated with a light slick texture developing a fruity-dry-tartness. Chewy well balanced yet complex lasting finish. Nice one!
