Bière de Garde (8.2%):

Our 2017 Bière de Garde was released in November 2017.

After spending over 10 months in a French oak puncheon, our bière de garde was bottled with Brettanomyces. Again the result is something of a tribute to farmhouse ales of old, where accidental inoculation with Brettanomyces was no doubt commonplace.

This beer is decidedly complex - definite plum, pepperberry or juniper fruitiness on the first pass, then layers of oak come in, hinting at fortified wine, or even brandy. Malt sweetness dominates the mid palate, then the finish is bone dry, leaving impressions of oak, pinot must, and peppery/earthy undertones.

This is a rich and complex beer that should cellar well for 2-5 years if not more. Around 600 bottles were produced.
