Duchesse de Bourgogne Flemish Red Ale (Sour), Belgium, 6.0% ABV

16 Aug

DSCN1942-001Possibly the most beguiling, unique beer in our cellar right now. Technically it’s a Flemish Red Ale, but that moniker hardly does its complexity justice. The Duchesse is a big, refreshing ale matured in oak casks, with a definite sour note from fermentation with Brettanomyces yeast. It’s sweet and sour, malty yet showing undertones of citrus and bright, tart cherry. Incredible balance, rich texture and a long, dry finish. 750ml. $15
