Details

The Duchesse and I go way back, I met her when I first got into beer and we’ve been solid pals ever since. Pouring a deep red brown with aromas of sour cherry, black forest fruit, wood and rich balsamic. This is such a smooth drinking beer, sweet on the start giving way to tart acetic characters. Very well rounded and full of dark fruit flavours that you never quite feel that burn. This has been in my top 5 go to beers for years, and I can’t see that changing any time soon!

A beautifully complex sour beer. Begins sweetly before malty and sour flavours come to the fore. Great aroma too.
Stunning sour

I'm generally a big fan of Belgian beers...several trips to Bruges have reinforced that. I came across this by accident whilst back in the UK trying to source some bottles of Bourgogne Des Flandres (possibly my all time favorite beer). This is as close to perfect as you can get. Sweet at first, and very inviting. It leaves a warm cosy feeling on the palette, almost medicinal (I'd liken it to Galloways cough syrup in smell and initial flavour). A must buy if you're looking to get into Sour beer.

Never tried a sour before but, judging by this I would drink again. Expect an unusual aroma with a lovely looking dark pour. There is a malty acidity similar to wine but, once your palate adapts you'll be enjoying each mouthful more than the last.
Strong and sour

Good kick to it, almost wine like. Very drinkable considering how strong and sour it is.
