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.

Truly a Flanders Style beer. The Duchesse is lively on the tongue and bright on the nose. Strong head retention with tiny bubbles and thick lacing. Reddish brown. A little sweet pairs nice with the vinegary sour taste. A little bark taste finishes under the tongue and leaves a nice lingering aftertaste of sweet and sour. Not overbearing sour this is a fantastic beer.

Ive not tried a sour beer before so approached this without really knowing what to expect. It poours a ruby brown colour with a noticable slightly tan colour head which quickly diminishes in size but leaves a pleasant coating on top throughout. It reminded me instantly of balsamic vinegar in its taste, mixed with sour red berries. There is a noticable sweetness and on the finish I picked up notes of earth and wood. I spent my time sipping away at this and rather enjoyed it.

On tap at Global Brew. Smells of sour fruit, vinegar, earth. Deep ruby color with an inch thick head. Flavors of red wine, wood, sour cherry, subtle funk. Finishes clean. A very approachable sour and a good place to start if you're just getting in to them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bardzo pyszne piwo. Kwaśne, mocno czuć aromaty czerwonego wina - zarwno w wyglądzie, jak i aromacie i smaku.

33cl bottle at Bar & Cigar. Pours clear mahogany with an off-white head. Aroma of balsamico vinegar, dark red berries and spur fruits. Sour and moderate sweet with nice wooden and fruity notes. Fresh and very refreshing. Delicious stuff!
