Every once in awhile, I like to pick up some exotic beer with labels containing a good dose of unrecognizable wordage. One of my latest finds was the Ducassis from the Brasserie des Géants brewery in Belgium. This pleasant, unfiltered fruit ale, fashioned from blackcurrants, which give it a plumb color, has a bold floral taste with a huge, lasting head that produces a heavy flowery aroma. The taste is wonderfully complex– I picked up hints of malts intertwined with a strong currant flavor that produced a sour, but satisfying finish.
The Ducassis is a rare find and I plan to keep an eye out for more beers from this brewery due to the interesting showing of this fruity brew.
