+ .5 i love flanders of almost any style - if i never drink another duchess, i'll be just fine. for that style i love ichtegems... not nearly as sweet but has lots of body and very little acetic quality to it.

My wife and I just opened one as our first taste of a "sour" beer. She really likes it. The acetic acid flavor wasn't very strong, but a hint of it on the nose. It was sweeter than I expected. Bottle says it's a blend of 8 and 18 month old beers.

I wasn't crazy enough about it to want to brew this exact beer, but I like the change of pace with the bit of sourness.

I have some others in the fridge to try and a local pub always has a good selection.

According to your username you are in Boise, Id. Can you still get it at just over $2 a beer? I am from Washington but may be in that area soon.

If you havent tried New Glarus Wild Sour Ale, I suggest trying to get your hands on it. Delicious. Much better than the Duchess IMO, although Duchess is a great one, too.

Nope, no longer. Too bad.

Duchesse is not a good Flanders. It's not a good sour. It's not even a good beer. Just my opinion.

It's often suggested as a beginner sour and a lot of people say they like it. Drink 10 different Flanders ales and then try Duchesse again. It will be a dud compared to most of the others.

Agreed, it's a nice starting point to get an idea of the style without getting scared away, lol. Loving this New Glarus...
