Duchesse de Bourgogne

This has become one of my new favorite beers. This is a traditional top fermented reddish-brown ale from the West-Flanders region of Belgium where these refined ales are known as "The Burgundies of Belgium". This ale is a blend of 8 and 18 month old ales following careful maturation in oak casks. This beer pours a reddish brown color with a light fizzy that actually increase if you let it sit for a few minutes. The nose was loaded with red berry fruits, citrus, sweet malts and yeast. The palate follows suit with the flavors you pick up on the nose plus some notes of bread and spice. Absolutely delicious!
