Duchesse de Bourgone lovers: kriek and wild boar

For those of you that like the Duchesse de Bourgogne Belgian ale, Toronado has a great kriek from the same brewery. It's not as sweet and was a near perfect food match for the wild boar sausage from Rosamunde.

Note -- I'm also normally a Duchesse fan, but the current keg at Toronado tasted like they are adding some saccharine, which is not unheard of in Belgian beers. It still had some sourness and so was balanced alright, but was sweeter than I prefer and remember from my favorite batches. Toronado has Duchesse often on draft so I've been drinking this stuff regularly for the last several years. It's sweeter currently than normal.
