"Duchesse Cherry" is as its name proposes a cherry beer. Brewed uniquely with genuine Belgian cherries (no flavor enhancers or cherry concentrates). The organic product originates from the area of Sint-Truiden in Limburg (Belgium).
Not at all like the more celebrated Kriek beers, the fundamental beer of the "Duchess Cherry" isn't a Lambic. yet, a Flanders red ale of blended fermentation. This beer has a top-fermented base and is then developed in oak containers where it goes through a second wild fermentation. The tannins in the foeders (exceptionally huge barrel utilized for the storage of incredible Bordeaux wines) give Duchess Cherry its sweet, fruity, refreshing, and bittersweet taste.
When the base beer is prepared, the master brewer includes 20 Kg of "Kriek Gorsem" (Belgian sharp cherries) per 100 liters to the beer. For 6 months, the beer macerates with the cherries. The cherries give a fresh and fruity taste to the beer which has a sweet and sharp base.
Following 24 months of cycle, the beer is fit to be separated and racked.
