Oh the dutchess... Shall I compare the to a summer's day? Seriously though, this beer is phenomenal. For one expecting a good sour ale this beer cannot be beat, though potentially tied. I got exactly what I expected and would not wish for this beer to change at all. I hope to be able to share this beer with my children, when they are old enough of course. (At least not until they hit double digits.) Thanks to all those Flemish folks for this amazing contribution to the world beer community.

Dark brownish red, with some bubbly carbonation. Nice off-white head, with excellent retention. A half hour into it and there's still a little layer of foam.
Smells of sweet and sour fruits. Berries and some caramel like sweetness. Not as pungent as a lot of sours beers, and that works to its benefit.
The sourness is mild, but it's definitely there. Nice berry taste. Strawberry, cherry, some grape. A bit of a bread like character. Medium body, not too thin, but not overpowering either. Delicious.

The sour beers are winning me over. Duchesse is one of my favorites now.
