Utilizing the popular and unique kettle-souring method, Heiress will develop its tart, sour character in mere days instead of months or years without the risk of contaminating other batches. The resulting beer will mature rapidly into an elaborate menagerie of flavors, all bound within its deep ruby, medium-bodied elixir, and topped with a voluminous off-white head.

I’m still in the process of making this beer, but I’m very impressed with the tangy and fresh aroma and taste of the wort after letting the lactobacillus work for 72 hours. Those characteristics were unchanged after bringing the wort to a boil and adding the hops. Now the beer is happily and steadily bubbling away in the primary.
I love northern's beer kits, they are simple and delicious. I also enjoy learning more about how to brew different kinds of beer.
Duchess de Bourgogne is my favorite sour beer.This kit comes close, but seems a little light, and the souring flavor is one dimensional. I ordered the kit again and made a Cherry belgian dubbel with it, and used the sour yeast to make a Berliner Wiess. I give credit to the team at Northern Brewer for coming close to the Duchess, but she is still the Queen and will not be dethroned. Brewdog333
So my Heiress is finally carbonated and ready to drink...I purchased two all-grain kits and made a 10 gal. batch in my Electric Brewery. Souring was complete in two and a half days achieving 3.3 before I boiled to stop the process. I fermented for three weeks with the last two at 40 degrees. While my batch didn't clear up as described for the style, it tastes wonderful and I will definitely be purchasing again in the future. I highly recommend this kit to anyone who loves sours.
The kits is fairly average. The yeast came already “popped” and the grains were spilled all over the box. After scooping it all out of the box and getting new yeast from the brew store it’s a fairly mediocre brew. As others have said no complexity, nowhere anywhere to a clone of the real thing. Probably would not get it again.
