Duchesse de Bourgogne

Duchesse de Bourgogne August 18My first Flanders red ale

The colour is deep, almost jewel toned, ruby red.  The head is snow white, though lasts only a few minutes before it reduced by half.  Heavily raspberry scented, with no hint of hops.  I had strong raspberry and currant flavours, with a sweet, almost raisin like aftertaste. It is a touch sour, which is a nice balance to all that sugar.
