Chip the Beer Guy Rock 107 - Duchesse de Bourgogne

11 April 2008

Todays Chip the Beer Guy show on Rock 107 featured Duchesse de Bourgogne. Today's beer (courtesy of Purvs Beer & More), highlighted not only the Flemish Red Ale style, but also the blended beer method. Duchesse ale is a blend of beer aged 18 months in oak barrels with beer aged 8 months to create a unique blended red ale. Speaking of blending, the highlight of the show was Chip's pronunciation of the brew...."doo-shay de boar-goan yay" (sorry for the horrific phonetic). Needless to say I'll be nervous the next time I order one...perhaps I'll have to stick to "Duchess." Chip also explained the woman on the bottle is the Duchess of Burgundy and her falcon, who apparently died at the age of 25 by falling off a horse during a falconry event....perhaps drinking and falcon-ing should be left to the experts. Duchess comes to us from Brouwerji Verhaeghe of Belgium and comes in at a very tasty 6% ABV.
