RateBeer.com -- Correct Women of Beer HildegardeWomen of Beer Hildegarde


Description:
For their second collaborative brew (this time with added Woman), the Women of Beer again looked to history for inspiration.
This beer’s name comes from Hildegard von Bingen: nun, scribe, composer and feminist credited with being the first to author the preservative power of hops in beer. Not that hops are the primary characteristic in the beer, a French farmhouse ale based on the Biere de Garde style that had French oak chips added in the fermenter. And it’s the oak that really stands out – soft yet prominent – giving the beer more than a passing resemblance to a wooded Chardonnay. There’s malt sweetness and a little spiciness in there too in another elegant and off centre release from the ladies. The beer was made possible with ingredients supplied by Bintani, Cryer Malt and Grain & Grape. Labels were supplied by Pemara.
