Details

Birra del Borgo's Duchessa is a classic Saison/Farmhouse Ale that is brewed using the ancient grain of spelt in place of any wheat. Whilst spelt is traditionally used in a lot of French and Belgian summer ales it is not considered to be "gluten free," instead it is a suitable substitution for those who have wheat allergies. The straw-coloured Duchessa has prominent malts on the nose alongside a bit of spicy yeast and subtle orange notes. A mostly clean flavour is accentuated by some florals and a bit of spicy pepper. Light-bodied and creamy, a delicate carbonation lifts the semi-sweet finish. Clean and refreshing, this saison will also appeal to lager-lovers.
