Duchesse is on the shelf!

#105 - Duchesse de Bourgogne

Duchesse De Bourgogne just arrived! Traditional Flemish or Flanders red ale, matured 18 months in oak casks and is a blend of a young 8 months old ale and an older 18 month old ale, which produces an ale with nuances of the sweetness of fruit and chocolate but with a higher degree of acidity which has sourness to the palate. Unusal appoach but an enjoyable change of pace from the hard sour ales. Prost! Topper
