Duchesee de Bourgogne is the traditional top fermented reddish-brown ale from the West-Flanders region of Belgium. This refined ale also known as "The Burgundies of Belgium" is a blend of 8 and 18 months old ales following careful maturation in oak casks. 100% natural and unpasteurized.
Pours a black cherry red with a prominent head. Aroma has some red wine qualities and lots of different fruits. Tough to decipher, to be honest. Quite the surprise when it hits the mouth: an initial bitterness suddenly bursts into sweetness. Very intriguing and something I could probably enjoy in limited quantities.
