On tap. Poured into tulip.
A Dark ruby, near black. Thick tan head that remains
S Pungent! Rhubarb. Fine tones like a rainy day. Aged Cheese even.
T Tart... and tart! Much like the smell. Sour candy. Lime. Grape. Sweetness that lingers.
M Medium and effervescent.
O Awesome. Great rep of the style. The mix of tartyness/sweetness is perfect. I could drink this all day.

Bottle poured into an oversized snifter.
A - Very very dark brown with hints of red where the light hits the glass. Half finger of khaki head that sticks around for a bit. Good looking beer.
S - sour cherry and dark fruits. very pungent.
T - big sour dark fruits with a dominant cherry flavor. A great example of Flanders Red style.
M - Puckering sour from start to finish. Mild carbonation and medium bodied. One of my favorite sours so far.
O - I feel that this is slightly better than Rodenbach Grand Cru. A very good entry sour, which is what I am into right now. Good stuff.

A: Pours a deep red with an inch tall white head
S: Aroma of Belgian yeast and fruit
T: Not overly sour but has a good bite to it. Fruit and candy. Sweet but balanced
M: Good carbonation
Overall: This is candy not beer. The Duchesse is one fine lady

A: Dark copper, not particularly red. Nice though. Can almost see through it. Small but sustained off-white head comprising bubbles of various sizes.
S: The typical components of a Belgian dark ale with vinegar added.
T: Oh, my. Very complex. It's fairly sweet but balanced with sourness but not as sour as I was expecting. There's strong balsamic vinegar at the forefront then chocolate, cola and some coriander seed. In the aftertaste there's plum tea and a delicate green grape flavour that lingers for a long time afterwards, quite reminiscent of Remy Martin VSOP. Alcohol is completely imperceptible. From the dregs I get a touch of ginger beer.
M: A soft effervescence. Sort of foamy but not saturated with air. Ever so slightly sticky.
O: A quality beer but not something I'd drink often.
