Inspired by the classic Flemish Red Ale, Heiress de Bourgogne is a deeply complex sour red ale with notes of raisins, dark stone fruits, and a delicate tartness.
Utilizing the popular and unique kettle-souring method, Heiress will develop its tart, sour character in mere days instead of months or years without the risk of contaminating other batches. The resulting beer will mature rapidly into an elaborate menagerie of flavors, all bound within its deep ruby, medium bodied elixir and topped with a voluminous off-white head.

- 4.3 / 5.03 ReviewsYeah baby!I'm equally impressed. Just the right tartness and I took the pH to 3.35. I used the Grainfather so did the mash and preboil then srabalized the temp for 3 days in the boil kettle. After 2 weeks in warm room using fizz tabs, got a small head and champagne bubbles. Nice grain profile in flavor, dry tart slight sweet. Very pleased with my first ever sour and sure I wil impress some of my friends. A must try for those who want to try a sour. If I had a keg setup I probably would experiment with nitro on this recipe!August 9, 2017Purchased
5 months agoright taste needs more bodyI will make this again as the sour flavor is right on the money. I let it sour the full three days and used my wrap heater over the kettle to regulate the temp. I would do that sooner next time and I will either adjust the mash or extend the boil to get more body. I really like sours and have probably tried nearly 80. This one has the right tartness and a great flavor. I am interested to see how it ages. Give it a go.June 29, 2017Great beerWow I was shocked at well this turned out. I have really wanted to do a sour since I first tried a Rodenbach, but thought it was beyond my reach until I started reading about kettle souring.
I am ordering again but I am going to try adding fruit and maybe oak chips this time.July 2, 2017Purchased

- Browse 2 questions Browse 2 questions and 2 answersHow well do you expect this beer to do with aging in the bottle?BEST ANSWER: Shouldn't change too much because you kill all the lacto in the boil. Still tasty and ought to do fine in the bottle for a while.The yeast option for this beer is dry yeast. In the directions it mentions options for Wyeast or omega. Is the dry yeast the correct option?BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting Northern Brewer. For this Heiress de Dourgogne kit, there are several types of yeast you can choose to make this particular beer. We always have the dry yeast chosen by default, but if you click on the yeast there is a drop down menu. For this kit you could use: Safbrew T-58 Dry yeast, Wyeast 3522 Belgian Ardennes, or the Omega Belgian Ale A. Cheers!
