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.

Pours dark ruby with a big head. Sweet and sour, grapes. You can literally taste the barrel as you drink (in a good way). Excellent sour!

Draft. This beer replaced another beer on-tap while I was at Melt Bar & Grilled in Lakewood, OH. Bartender offered me a sample & I couldn’t help but order a full pour. Small head. Dark red pour. Sweet dark fruit and black cherry aroma. Tart, mature barrel aged cherry flavor with enough sweetness for your mouth not to pucker. I think this beer could convince non-beer drinkers that beer can also have similar qualities to a nice, aged port. What a great way to finish off a night of good beer.

Smells like strong old malt vinegar. Call it a wine-beer, fruity aftertaste with hints of apple and raisin. Would not buy again. Had at Holden with my father. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The first impression when I smelled this was how beautiful it smelt. The first taste I thought was a little too sweet especially for a Geuze. But then again it is not too sweet. Overall the taste is beautiful. Unusual and very enjoyable.

Bottle shared by EDA. Poured amber with a lot of beige head. Aroma is buttery with a little bit of sourness/tartness. The flavor is very fruity (mostly cherries) and also buttery. Very smooth palate.

Sweet and fruity, with a taste an smell of oakwood. Refrishingly with a good after-taste. A fine beer for both men and (maybe even more) women. When you first taste it, you will come back for more..
