Ahhhh, the return of a classic. Deep mahogany in color with a small but persistent head. The aroma is oaky with a light sweetness and raspberry / cherry notes. The beer is light on the tongue with just a hint of caramel malt to play off of the lactic tartness and just a hint of damp earth. The finish is dry with minerals and fruit skin. Try this side by side with the Verhaeghe Duchesse d Bourgogne and see which you like best.
