Additional information:

This beer is brewed by Brouwerij Verhaeghe in Vichte, which is one of the very few breweries who are entitled use the name Flemish red for their beers. They use water from their own 172m deep well in their brewing process. While Duchesse De Bourgogne is a blend of 8 and 18 month old beer, the brewery also sells another beer called ‘Vichtenaar’ which is made with only 8-month old beer. Because that beer is younger, it is lighter and more sour.

All beers are shipped in professional, DHL-approved, triple-walled cardboard boxes, where all bottles are separated from each other to prevent them from hitting against each other during transport
First of all, you should bear in mind that during transport the bottles might have been thrown around quite a bit and that it’s not a good idea to drink them immediately. We advise you to let the bottles rest in an upright position in a dark and cool place for at least 48 hours. This will allow the yeast to sink to the bottom of the bottle again, and it will also prevent an outburst of foam when you open them. Beers are best kept in an upright position (to make sure the yeast residue remains at the bottom) and in a dark and cool a cool place. (The ideal temperature is 10-12°C (50-55°F) and it is also important the temperature remains as stable as possible.) It is best to drink all beers before the expiry date mentioned on the bottle.  Some brewers, however, mention the bottling date rather than the expiry date on their bottles.
