COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vin d’orge

Dans Le Trompète major, l’écrivain Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) fit une deScription plutôt alléchante d’une bière extra-forte, liquoreuse et maltée : le vin d’orge. Notre version s’inspire des pures traditions anglaises de ce style. L’utilisation généreuse de houblons lui donnera une bonne amertume lorsque jeune, mais ils perdront leur agressivité en protégeant la bière au fil du temps. L’Ale de Hardy présente des notes fortement maltées de sucre d’orge auxquelles se mélangent des saveurs de caramel de jus de fruits secs. Avec le temps, des notes de porto, de cerises noires et de tire d’érable peuvent se pointer à l’horizon gustatif.

In his historical novel The Trumpet Major, British author Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) provided a rather enticing deScription of a syrupy, malty, extra strong beer: barley wine. Our version is inspired by the pure English tradition of this style. The generous use of hops lends a solid bitterness when young that mellows with age as it protects the beer from the ravages of time. Ale de Hardy presents strong malted barley flavors accented by notes of caramel, dried fruit and a warming sensation from the higher alcohol content. Over time notes of port wine, black cherry and maple taffy may emerge.
