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.

Beautiful. Smells of cherries and red berries. Pours a wonderfully dark brown color with a minute head. It does have some wine characteristics but the traditional slight sourness is wonderful

Had this on tap a few times at the Stumbling Monk in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Just an incredible beer. Very fruity. Sour without being overpowering. The color is gorgeous on it too.

I’m just getting into Flemish Ales, but after trying several I find myself confused by this beers high ratings. Far less tart than Monk’s and considrably less cherry than Petrus, this beer is middle of the road, very average, doesn’t stand out...

nutjes (297) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2016 25cl-fles bij Brasserie Muze te Kortrijk. U: Helder kastanjebruin met rode toets vergezeld van dunne bruine schuimkraag. G: Aceton, balsamico, rood fruit en houttoetsen. S: Zoetzuur, rood fruit en hout. In de nasmaak zuur vineus en opnieuw aceton. Dit gaat tegen het einde van het flesje wel vervelen en storen. M: Stevige carbonatie. Zeer leuk bier voor een proefglaasje maar een heel flesje gaat snel vervelen en zelfs storen!

RomanW70 (296) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - APR 4, 2008
Pours dark reddish brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma a combination of sweet and sour cherries. Very sweet up front, flowing into a mild sour and finishing smooth with a slight vineous tartness. Med-low carbonation. Medium mouthfeel. Good beer, bit would like to see more sweet/sour balance. A little heavy on the sweet side.

Pours hazy ruby brown with beige head. Aroma of red vinegar, nuts, some dark fruits. Taste is sour and sweet, balanced. Medium body, soft carbonation, easy drinking. Great!

Presents red/copper with a nice, off white head. Nose shows raspberry, balsamic vinegar and oak. Palate has sweet malt that brings caramelised berries before the oak kicks into gear and delivers a dry, salty mustiness with almond and marzipan and afterthought. Finishes with balanced, slightly tart acidity. Classic!!

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2002
Mahogny body with a tan head. Sweet nose with a hint of maltiness. Very sour then tart flavor. No hops in the taste or aroma. I would drink again without a twist of the arm.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with medium-sized off-white head. Excellent lacing. Aromas of strong fruit, mainly pears and grapes. Another aroma exists and I cannot tell you what it is, but it smells sweet and I like it. Tastes like port or wine, with a very sweet taste and little carbonation. Texture is oily and sticky. Very strange beer, but I have to say that I somewhat enjoy it.
