Duchesse Cherry

Beer: Duchesse Cherry
Brouwerij Verhaeghe
Country: Belgium
Style: Flanders Red Ale
ABV: 6.8%
IBU: n/a
Serving: 0.330L Bottle


A blend of two Duchesse De Bourgogne brewed with Belgian cherries and aged in oak barrels;

Ruby red beer very clear with a white/pinky head not very persistent;
The classic aroma of vinegar that characterizes the Duchesse de Bourgogne is covered and softened by an intense, fresh and pleasant cherry aroma;
Medium-low body with a medium carbonation;
A pleasant sweetness and the good sourness are perfectly balanced together creating an excellent contour to the taste of cherry that persists in the aftertaste. Bitterness not present;

Personal opinion
Despite not having perceived the oak neither in the nose nor in the mouth, this beer is really good, a cherry bomb made much more pleasant thanks to the strong softening of the intense acetic notes of the sister Duchesse de Bourgogne.
