Greetings, my dear aficionados of the finer things in life. I am Duchesse De Bourgogne Cherry, and I am not your typical Kriek beer. Oh no, I am a fruited Flanders red ale of mixed fermentation, a true masterpiece of brewing that is the result of a meticulous process that takes over two years to complete.
My top-fermented base undergoes a second wild fermentation in noble oak casks for several months, which imbues me with a uniquely sour profile that is delicately balanced with notes of sweetness, fruitiness, and bitterness. But that's not all. To create me, my master brewer sources only the finest Belgian cherries from the region of Sint-Truiden in Limburg, Belgium. These cherries are added to my base and macerated for six months, imparting a fresh and fruity taste that perfectly complements my sweet and sour base.
After undergoing 24 months of meticulous aging and refinement, I, a royal creation, am finally ready to be enjoyed by those who appreciate the finest in Belgian brewing traditions. My taste is truly one of a kind - sour, fruity, and complex - and I am sure to leave a lasting impression on your palate. So go ahead, indulge in a glass of me and let my regal taste transport you to the heart of Belgium's brewing heritage. Cheers!
Verhaeghe Brewery is a family-owned Belgian brewery located in Vichte, West Flanders. The brewery was founded in 1885 by Paul Verhaeghe and continues to be run by the 4th generation of Verhaeghes today. Despite multiple setbacks wrought by the world wars, Verhaeghe managed to pick up the pieces and re-establish itself on the market. Verhaeghe Brewery’s greatest success is the Duchesse de Bourgogne - a Flemish Red Ale that was named in honour of Duchess Mary of Burgundy, the only daughter of Charles the Bold. Today, the brewery continues to thrive in spite of Karl’s horrific traffic accident as well as the declining demand for Flemish Red-Brown ales.
