VERHAEGHE DUCHESSE DE BOURGOGNE BROWN ALE

Brouwerij  Verhaeghe Duchesse De Bourgogne Reddish Brown Ale. The label made no mention of serving temperature so I checked their website: serve at 8 to 12 degrees in a chalice. As House Bernauer does not run to any crystal chalice I served it in a standard glass rather the Bendigo Pottery stoneware.

Lovely reddish brown colour as you would expect, a very tart fruity aroma and full fruit sourness that had me wanting more than this little bottle had to offer. This beer has a wonderful rounded feel, possibly from the oak barrel aging.

I am surprised that Flanders does not secede from Belgium, when these beers are lumped in with the sweet Belgian rubbish.

 

8/10
