Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: ATPete on 11-01-2009

A sort of "collaboration beer" with the famous Belgian brewery Brasserie Cantillon: an interesting experiment on the world of spontaneous fermentation. Our classic Duchess - Spelt beer - is was cut with a 20% of Cantillon lambic aged one year. The result is a unique beer that blends in an extraordinary way the characteristic acidity and roughness of lambic with delicate and gentle notes of the Duchess.

Huge carb/head and an orange body. Smell is hay and lemons. Beer is really well balanced with a creaminess from the body and a light citrus. Like a HF saison with some brightness from that lambic, but it's a saison to its core. Excellent beer.
