11.2 oz can, from Belgian Style Ales here in the US.
Pour is as expected with the Coke like head that is gone in seconds. Zero retention, zero lace. As expected.
Great garnet red color as the light hits it.
Nose is indistinguishable from its bigger sister. Light, but obvious ethanoic acid. Tastes follow suit, with the typical apple acidity and light barrels notes that the Duchesse always brings. Light carbonation hangs on, and gives a decent, lively feel to the beer.
I suppose that the alcohol feels a little muted, but the tastes are pretty much exactly as one would expect when compared to the original ABV beer. Warming takes the edge off things a bit, and the beer ultimately mellows out to more of sweet and sour feel.
Very little to report here if you’ve ever had Duchesse itself. if you were expecting a slightly reduced ABV of the original, then that’s exactly what you will encounter. No more, no less.
