Renaissance Enlightenment Series Bière de Garde (500ml Bottle)

Renaissance Enlightenment Series Bière de Garde 500ml Bottle

Description

Brewers would craft this beer in the winter months, but aimed to make a style that could be enjoyed for the rest of the year. As beer was often used as payment for farmhands, they had to be refreshing in the hot summer months. Bière de Garde (Beer to Keep) became the name for these unique, rustic ales. This is our take with a different aging technique. This fine ale is aged in chardonnay and gerwürztraminer barrels for four and a half months. This beer is dry with honey biscuit characters and a finish of the fine flavours with a hint of French oak. Thanks to Matt Dainty for this interesting beer.

Tasting Notes

Bière de Garde

Medium bodied with hints of caramel or toffee. Cellared smell and flavor are characteristics. Color can vary from full gold to copper colored. Good head retention. The name means "beer for keeping" and is best when aged.
