12oz on tap @ brouwers.
Looks red with gauzy tan head. Smell is sweet and sour with obvious cherry and strawberry.
Taste is good, but not as sweet and smooth as the duchesse. A tiny bit vinegary. A bit oaky, almost whiskylike.
A litle dry and not totally smooth, but very good.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle poured into a Daredevil tulip glass.
A: Pours a murky brown with well over a finger of airy white head that disappears quickly and leaves only a thin collar. The viscosity does not look like any 10% beer I've ever had before! this looks much thinner and watered down.
S: A strong aroma of funk hits up front, and really takes control throughout. I get more wine notes from this than I do currants - and this is probably for the better.
T: Early in the glass the funk and sour is very dominant. Once my taste buds adjust, the dark fruits and wine shine through.
M: High level of carb, leaves a bitter dry finish.
O: This is such a well crafted beer, I enjoyed every aspect of it from first to last sip. When the sour starts to give way to flavor, it's amazing how everything comes together so well.
