Duchesse de Bourgogne revisited

I have had this beer a number of times both from bottles and on draft.  I’ve never fully enjoyed it until the other night when I had it at about 72 degrees.  The beer has a whole family of characteristics that I hadn’t noticed before.  The malt really balances out the sours and the wood characteristics flesh out the body.  I have a new-found appreciation for this classic brew and plan on trying more sours now that I know how I best enjoy them.

Mostly in and around western and upstate NY. Forays into New England and down the eastern seaboard.
