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

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.
