Tasting Notes

Duchesse de Bourgogne is a beer for wine drinkers. The nose has gentle red-wine like aromas, sour cherries, earthy barnyard, and soft toasty oak. The palate is medium-bodied and soft boasting a rich soil and cocoa element quickly followed by a surge of tart cherries and apple peels that finishes complex and dry. A beer to ponder and enjoy.

Method

Flanders red ale is fermented with organisms other than regular ale yeasts, especially Lactobacillus, which produces a sour character attributable to lactic acid. Long periods of aging are employed, a year or more, often in oak barrels, to impart a lactic acid character to the beer. Amber malts are used to give the beer its colour and the matured beer is often blended with a younger batch before bottling to balance and round the character.
