The Duchesse du Bourgogne is brewed at the Brewery Verhaege, its existence dating back to 1892. This is the beauty with Belgian beers, they all have years of history behind them. Still a family business, the brewery produces 6 beers today: the Cambrinus, the Christmas-Verhaege, the Duchesse du Bourgogne – tried and tested, the Echte Kriek, which means as much as the real Kriek, the Verhaege Pils and the Vichtenaar.
I wonder how long it will take me to go through all the different beers Belgium has to offer, big and small producers alike? The Duchesse du Bourgogne has a fruity character, and 6,2% alcohol. Usually served between 8 and 12°C.
