4.23/5 rDev +1.7%
Pours a dark caramel brown with a slight off-white head. Stays around, but no lacing. Cherries, Raspberries and balsamic vinegar on the nose. Flavor begins with a sour kick of cherries, grape juice, red wine and mellowed vinegar. Not too tart or puckering. Hints of sweet raspberries, lemon juice and sour apples near the finish. Just a touch of wood as well. Nice balance, simple mix of flavors that work very well together.

In bottle, served in wine glass. Appearance is slightly reddish with yeast clouding and effervescent head.
Nose is raspberry and yeast with clove and anise spice.
Mouthfeel is dry and champagne like. It literally disappears on the tongue, with rich malt and complex fruit and spice on the palate.

Enjoyed in a snifter at Tops.
Deep, dark copper with good clarity. A thin, light tan layer of large-bubbled head becomes a filmy top layer.
Like white vinegar left inside an oak barrel. A very tart, astringent nose. Oodles of vinegar, hints of caramel and cherries, touches of biscuits and flowers.
Maltier in the flavor. Sweet caramel, tart cherries, a touch of balsamic vinegar. Like a blend of green apple and cherry jolly ranchers. A good balance of sour and sweet.
Moderate, massaging carb and a bit of fizz in a body a shade under medium. Soft tartness.
The sweet and sour of beers. The Duchesse has a nice balance, but it’s not the tops of the style. A good, entry-level Flanders red.
