Style and Colour: Flemish Red-Brown Beer, very light and crisp.
Taste: The aroma is malty and slightly roasted. This beer tastes slightly sweet and sour, with a moderately bitter finish of roast malt.
Alcohol: 5 % ABV
Drinking Temperature: 4 - 6 °C
Fermentation: Bourgogne des Flandres is a mixed-fermentation beer: a young, top-fermented beer is blended with spontaneously fermented lambic beer. The brewer does not add yeast but uses wild yeasts in the air: when brewing is done, the wort cools down in a large open cooling basin, and the wild yeasts (“Bretts” of the Brettanomyces family) in the air encourage it to ferment spontaneously.The fermentation process of lambic beers continues in oak foeders, a process that can take between 2 and 3 years.
The Brewery: Brouwerij Bourgogne des Flandres. Located in the historical center of Brugge, 200m from The Grand Place.Founded in 1825.
Origin: In the Middle Age, the Burgundy region extended to Flanders. In 1419, the Duke of Burgundy, Jean Sans Peur, created the Order of Hops. It imposes the use of this plant to improve and stabilise the taste of the drink which then takes for the first time the name of beer (and no longer cervoise).
Food: Bourgogne des Flandres makes a great addition to a classic beef stew, and also soft cheese from the Burgundy area, a cheese from the Mâconnais region or an ash-covered goat’s cheese to complement it.

La Bourgogne des Flandres è una birra speciale bruna molto piacevole, robusta e leggermente fruttata. La preferita i mia moglie, a cui piaccioni birre come la Grimbergen rouge.
