The Beer

At Verhaeghe-Vichte tradition is more than just a hollow phrase. After all, this brewery has been brewing Flemish red-brown beer for four generations.

For Karl and his brother Peter, the brewer, the story started with Vichtenaar but it is the Duchesse de Bourgogne that has become their flagship beer. It is brewed with deeply roasted malts and aged hops, giving a low bitterness.

Many centuries have gone by but Mary of Burgundy is still held in high regard in the town of Vichte. This Duchess, born in Brussels, was the wife of Maximilian I.

“She granted many rights to citizens and supported the brewers,” Karl Verhaeghe of Brouwerij Verhaeghe-Vichte tells us.

The regional beers that were first produced when the brewery was founded in 1885 are still flowing out of the tanks.

We are referring to Flemish red-brown beers: a blend of top-fermented beers matured in oak foeders. In these foeders, the top-fermented beer undergoes a second wild, or spontaneous fermentation. So these beers are also known as mixed fermentation beers.

After the main fermentation and cold storage the Duchesse de Bourgogne continues to mature in oak foeders. The tannins from the oak lend the beer its fresh and fruity character.

Character, Tastes & Aromas

Duchesse de Bourgogne is a superb example of a Flemish red-brown beer, refreshingly sour with a sweet touch that doesn't linger too long.

Its vinous aromas and sharp sourness are tempered by the sweet character of the malt.
