Brewery Verhaeghe is the brewery that produces Duchesse de Bourgogne. They are a small family-owned brewery in the southwest of West Flanders, Belgium. The history of the brewery dates back to 1885.

The Verhaeghe brewery follows one simple rule: do a little less, but do it better. At home in Belgium but also across the globe, beer consumers tend to gravitate more and more towards high quality, unique beers. The flagship beer ‘Duchesse de Bourgogne’ is living proof of this philosophy. This popular red-brown west-flemish ale is brewed according to traditional wild yeast fermentation that this region in Belgium is famous for and additionally matured in oak casks for 8-18 months to ensure the unmistakable full flavour of ‘the Duchesse’.

Tasting Notes

The brew pours a clear, dark reddish brown with a small pinkish tan head, with vibrant aromas of tart sour cherries, bread, cocoa, toffee, and vanilla. On the palate, the dominant taste is cherry and chocolate, with a not-too-sweet chocolate aftertaste and refreshing acidity.

Method

Duchesse Chocolate Cherry (ABV 6.8%) from the Verhaeghe Brewery is traditional Duchesse de Bourgogne — a blend of 1 and 2 year old sour ales aged in oak casks — with 20 kg of whole sour cherries from the Limburg region of Belgium added to each 100 liters of the maturing beer, along with chocolate essence.
